Getting AirVPN to work in Egypt with stunnel

Recommended Posts

So I am travelling to Egypt soon and they block all OpenVPN connections from what I've read, but stunnel is supposed to be working.

How do I set this up through Eddie on Ubuntu?

I read the guide and it just said

Select AirVPN menu -> Preferences -> Protocols. Select one of the SSL Tunnel options. Click Save.

I went into protocols and I don't see anything about SSL tunnels. I only see ports I can choose, I know SSL works over port 443.

Will simply selecting port 443 work in circumventing the VPN block? Or is there something else I need to do?

In Preferences > Protocols, unselect Automatic, then you can scroll in the list below. :)

A month ago a long time customer of us from Egypt told us that protocol TCP to port 443 of entry-IP address three is the quickest way he found to bypass Egypt ISP blocks. Worth a try, probably that connection mode is still effective. It would save you the overhead caused by an additional tunnel.

Kind regards
