ANSWERED DNS Address - 0 Servers, 100 errors.

Recommended Posts

Installed Eddie v. 2.16.3 on Ubuntu 19.04.

When viewing ipleak.net (after choosing a VPN server via Eddie), the page shows 0 servers, 100 errors after completing tests (see attached). Does this mean that my system is leaking ip information?

Running ip leak test on other webpages show no leaks.

Hello,

IPLeak.net's  "DNS address detection" seems to be acting up again today (Saturday).  The IP Address detection seems to be working fine, but the DNS address detection is throwing 100/100 errors again.  I've visited the site with a couple of different browsers and while connected to a couple different AirVPN servers over the course of the day...same issue each time.  Just a heads up for those who might be around to poke around in that setup.

Thanks!

Excuse me, what the hell? :D You sure? :P

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.

Yeah I have no idea wtf is going on with it haha. The other day it said 0, earlier it said 67, now my browser cant even find the server ipleak.net heh. Between the Eddie beta on MacOS/DNS problems/ipleak freakouts, this VPN stuff is making me wanna let my hair grow out so I can pull it out later.

IPLeak.net is completely unreachable for me today.

I hope it's a maintenance issue as I've been using the site happily for a few years now.

What alternatives are there of the same quality?

Nonono, I meant.. why do you have 67 DNS servers and call it normal when it clearly isn't? :D

Yes it can look weird, but when you use a multicast DNS provider like Cloudflare,
those results are normal:

DNS Addresses - 48 servers, 6 errors.

This is what you will probably get from a random AirVPN location and your resolver as 1.1.1.1.

This is actually a good thing on it's own, it means your DNS resolver will try "harder" from multiple nodes,
in case of a temporary dnsfail result, and serve you the cached result of the recent known host.

For privacy, it is probably not the best way around, so DNSCrypt and OpenNIC are alternatives.

//
Must edit and say that Google does it as well, they just proxy their resolvers behind
8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4. When you run your own DNS you will see they still hammer you
with dozens of requests, but the client will still see 8.8.8.8 etc in the DNS check.
This is a quite usable thing actually because of the way DNS works. Gives more redundancy.

In the old era of "ISP DNS" an SRVFAIL will mean you are not getting an IP for that record.
With a somewhat more decentralized approach, at least you get the cache which is in 99%
not poisoned so any failure on the DNS provider side, or an update, you will still get response.

Yeah I use Google's DNS which is why I have so many (I just tried it again and now I have 74 DNS servers and 0 errors). I switched to that at the beginning of the month because Eddie was always hanging during connecting at checking IPV4, so I was trying anything to resolve it. When I left it set to Air's DNS I only used to get Air's DNS servers back. Sounds like ipleak was down all around when I tried it last so that explains that one, and their error explains the 100 errors.

i get the 100 errors on one computer but not on another, tried logging out and in again did not work, is the one showing 100 errors safe to use or not?
