IP X - IP info and leak test suite

Recommended Posts

Can anyone else confirm that ipx.ac is now inaccessible from many Air servers?  It used to work fine from german and dutch vpn exits, but a few days ago it suddenly stopped working despite continuing to be accessible from Tor and — of course — vpn.ac's own VPN service.

N.B. I use this site because Air's own ipleak.net is not as good for detecting multiple resolvers.

It looks like it's not accessible from some of the servers, but far less than the word "many" suggests.

Can you elaborate?

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.

Not blocked on AirVPN Canada side :)

ipleak.net does not always show all the DNS servers used/in use.
Or the Connection-type and other minor details such as "keep-alive".

This glimpse doesn't quite tell the whole story, since the site is indeed reachable from most anywhere but the page may not actually load.  I can confirm that this is occurring on many of the NL and DE exits this page says it checks out with.

Example: If you run your own openvpn script (rather than Eddie) on Linux and your /etc/resolv.conf should still contain entries for your isp's nameservers after the entry for Air's nameserver (ie, because user didn't configure things properly), ipleak.net may not always detect this potential leak — ipx.ac always seems to do so.

Can you also confirm it not working on other devices connected to the same servers you checked?
