Hi, I've looked, and found one or two bits on geolocation and also found info saying airvpn already provides doublehop ... but here's my question, obviously I'm not tech savvy enuf to get it even tho I've probably read the answer already (ok it's two questions)

in order to defeat geolocation do I need to doublehop?
if I need to doublehop do I do that by simply making two connections simultaneously? Or is it something else entirely? Or is each single connection actually already doublehopping thru more than one server?
thanks
Knopf

You need it in order to defeat restrictions based on geolocation, like if you want to watch German TV while connected to a US server.

Neither of those, but the latter is the "most correct". :D
Doublehop on AirVPN is totally outside your doing. The only thing you need to ensure if you want to use it is to use AirDNS. As I wrote above, if you resolve a name through AirDNS this way, you may get rerouted through one of the rerouting servers so that you can access whatever would otherwise be restricted if you were connecting from the server you are connected to.

» 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.
