Network Lock Question

Recommended Posts

Posted ... (edited)

Hello, My question is About network lock and how to start my vpn connection correctly using eddie on windows 10.

so what i usually do is i turn on airplane mode in windows and then i start eddie, make sure that network lock is activated and then while eddie is connecting to vpn and turn off airplane mode.

my question is do i need to turn airplane mode before starting eddie to prevent any leaks or that even if i just start eddie with network lock, without the airplane mode being on, there would be no leaks?

oh and if you cant tell i am a newbie in the vpn stuff and i just want to make sure that i am using airvpn correctly.

thank you.

Why are you even disabling airplane mode if your connection is wired, anyway? You can leave it on, it's a wonderful and easy stopper for wireless connections, even if NetLock does a good job itself regardless of other interfaces' states. So this:

Oooh, now I see what you're doing. Yes, it's probably safest if you keep doing it the way you do.
