Not connected, Your IP: 54.242.25.198

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I was messing around with a local web page hosted on my raspberry pi for local projects, and using that web page works fine from my pc which has an ethernet cable to my router. However when I try to access the page with my android phone, I cannot connect to the web page. I can also not reach my router admin page from my android device, something that DOES work on my pc...

All three devices: pc, android phone, raspberry pi are running on AirVPN.
The moment I disconnect from the VPN, I can access the admin panel and the website from my phone.

 

Is there a way to make devices connected via wifi while using the VPN able to access my router / other local machines?

 

Thanks in advance.

I assume you use Eddie on all the devices.

 

It has been noted that Eddie on Android does not create routes to your local IPv4 network.


Four simple things:
There's a guide to AirVPN. Before you ask questions, take 30 minutes of your time to go through it.

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here. It's the fallback DNS.
Running TOR exits is discouraged. They're subject to restrictions on the internet and harm all AirVPN users.

Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, you'll be unique among the mass again.

But if it does not create a route to my local IPv4 network, how does it work on my pc? Is it because of a direct connection between my pc and router via an ethernet cable?

Could I create such a route from my android phone to other local devices myself?

Your PC does not run Android, so for VPN connections without root (which you usually don't have on stock Android ROMs) you must use certain APIs of the OS. On any of the PC OSs you don't have this limitation.

Solved.

Replaced 'OpenVPN Connect' app with 'OpenVPN for Android' app which has the option 'Bypass VPN for local networks'.

After enabling this option I can finally reach my local network on my phone while using a VPN.

 

 

EDIT.

Android has a VPN setting : 'Block connections without VPN'. This must be turned OFF to be able to see the local network while using the VPN.
