Not connected, Your IP:

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.

» 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.
