Not connected, Your IP:

Eddie - Change ip adress every "x" minutes

Recommended Posts

Can the "Ip change" be implemented in eddie every "x" minute? I mean "disconnection and reconnection with new ip" automatically. Example "Ipvanish"

The most provocative question one can ask about such things is: Can you explain the benefits? The overwhelming majority cannot answer this question without ultimately revealing they're paranoid for no reason. I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. You are not even remotely as important for prying eyes as you believe. Unless you are a regime critic, a war correspondent, a certain kind of politician or anyone else who'd have a very good reason to be prosecuted, expecting a jail sentence I mean, but then a VPN shouldn't be your only layer of "protection". Tor is a better alternative for these people.

This option will force a full reconnect, causing noise in networks. Those who cause noise are more likely noticed. So from whom exactly are you trying to hide?

Once or twice this feature was asked for by users, I believe Staff once even answered but I can't for the love of it find the posts again, sorry. Anyway, back then it wouldn't happen, and I think today little changed, if at all.

» I am not an AirVPN team member. All opinions are my own and are not to be considered official. Only the AirVPN Staff account should be viewed as such.

» The forums is a place where you can ask questions to the community. You are not entitled to guaranteed answer times. Answer quality may vary, too. If you need professional support, please create tickets.

» If you're new, take some time to read LZ1's New User Guide to AirVPN. On questions, use the search function first. On errors, search for the error message instead.

» If you choose to create a new thread, keep in mind that we don't know your setup. Give info about it. Never forget the OpenVPN logs or, for Eddie, the support file (Logs > lifebelt icon).

» The community kindly asks you to not set up Tor exit relays when connected to AirVPN. Their IP addresses are subject to restrictions and these are relayed to all users of the affected servers.


» Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, chances are you will be unique amond the mass again.

Thank you for the comprehensive reply. I fully agree, my request only for practicality. Not for paranoia or more security. Not being able to refresh the ip from the modem, it seemed to me the solution to my problem. Anyway thanks.
