Not connected, Your IP:

Recommended Posts



I'm running a Windows 8.1 laptop that has a WiFi-only connection to my WiFi router/broadband modem.


Sometimes, it is convenient for me to run a "WiFi router" application on that laptop as an easy way to get WiFi connection sharing for a kindle and an iPad onto the internet as well, rather than connect those devices directly to my main router - it also acts like a range extender.  This all works splendidly.


Now, if I then start the Eddie client on the laptop, my assumption is that  the kindle and iPad that are connection sharing to the laptop will have all their traffic pass through the VPN, as well as traffic from the laptop itself, which is a good thing.


Is there any flaw in my assumptions?  Maybe I'm overthinking about where the VPN sits in the stack compared with how wireless-only internet connection sharing works....


Thanks for any re-assurances!

Yes, assuming your laptop is running Eddie and with Network Lock as well, then the devices connecting through your laptop will also be using the VPN.


At any rate, you could for example try to go ipleak.net from your iPad to see the IP address.
