AAAA RRs for AirVPN servers

Recommended Posts

Hi there!

Seemingly there are no AAAA resource records returned when querying any DNS server for AirVPN's server IPs:

$ dig any in errai.airvpn.org.

; <<>> DiG 9.11.5-P4-3-Debian <<>> any in errai.airvpn.org.

I tried my ISP's DNS resolver, Google's and Cloudflare's Public DNS (which returned a NOTIMP for ANY requests, but didn't return any AAAAs otherwise) on servers with IPv6 support, like Errai shown above.
Is this intended? Did I miss a thread on this in the past? Or am I doing something wrong?

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.
