Not connected, Your IP: 34.239.150.57

Hi there,

 

sorry if this is a very basic question but I'm really inexperienced. I enabled some ports for port forwarding, but none of them give me a green light at the TCP test. What should I do in order to get a green light?

(I enabled DMZ on my modem to allowing incoming connections to my machine, and have been connected to the same airvpn server for several hours)

 

Thanks

If you're using the AirVPN (Eddie) app then you certainly do *not* want to enable DMZ on your router.  That's a potential security risk.  DMZ is not needed in this case.  In fact, I can't really think of a case where DMZ is needed in conjunction with openvpn.

 

As to why port forwarding isn't working we'd need more information on your setup.

Thanks, I had to enable DMZ in the past before using VPN, and didn't wake up to the fact it was no longer needed.

My setup is mxlinux (debian), installed eddie with no problems, apart from port forwarding airvpn is working very well.

What I would really like to be able to do would be access my localhost remotely, via IP:port or myddns.airvpn.org:port, but am having no success, suppose it's related to the port forwarding issue?

NAT and firewalls of your ISP don't matter at all if you are connected to AirVPN. Anyway, please open your own thread and describe your problem more detailed than this there. Thanks.
