Which ports and protocols do you guys use?

Recommended Posts

Hello Fellow AIRVPN users!

I always wondered what ports and protocols the majority of users use, and the reasoning behind them?

Usually I stick with the default settings but sometimes if it seems slower than usual ill switch to SSL port 443. 

I was reading it helps prevent ISP's from realizing you are connected to a VPN somehow. Is this relatively true?

Well, the default is UDP/443, that's what most would use.

Not even relatively. From a technical point of view, that traffic might get away as standard HTTPS. One does not simply block or restrict HTTPS, that'd be inexcusable.

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.
