"Allow LAN/Private" in Windows 10 Lets Me Access my NAS?

Recommended Posts

On Windows 10, to allow me to access everything on my local network (LAN) with Eddie running using Network Lock, do I just turn on the option to "Allow LAN/Private"?  Everything going back and forth across the local network (i.e., not going or coming from the internet) will work correctly and not try to be routed through the AirVPN tunnel?

The only way to find out is to try it out. But that's what the option implies. It may occur that a few applications stop reaching devices in the network and from what I gather they're individual cases. But they share one thing in common: They all try to use NetLock.


You wouldn't come far routing a private address into the net, anyway. Even moderately well configured routers consider them bogus networks and packets are dropped, if they're not dropped at ISP level first.

» If you choose to create a new thread, keep in mind that we don't know your setup. Give info about it. Never forget the OpenVPN logs or, for Eddie, the support file (Logs > lifebelt icon).

» The community kindly asks you to not set up Tor exit relays when connected to AirVPN. Their IP addresses are subject to restrictions and these are relayed to all users of the affected servers.
