Not connected, Your IP: 18.207.108.182

Recommended Posts

I have been a user for a good year or two. I was considering moving to another provider mainly because Eddie is so unstable on Mac. It frequently crashes or freezes and I have to force quite which exposes me (i unplug the ethernet when it happens).
I am getting lots of problems with websites like paypal/ebay. I had a problem yesterday while connected to AirVPN and the customer service person said "you're connecting from an IP address listed as a Tor exit point". I don't really care, but I wondered if you offer any obfuscation like some companies are offering now, to try to hide the fact I am using a VPN? It's not a deal breaker but I would be interested to know.
I just saw on your home page the words "Double Hop". That got my attention as it was one of the main features I was aiming to get elsewhere. Does AirVPN offer double hop?
I am in the UK< it would be nice if I could send my traffic outside of the UK, and bring it back in before it exits your network, this would (maybe) help with ebay/paypal/banks etc getting spooked by my foreign IP.
I have not seen anything in Eddie related to Double Hop, grateful for any advice on how this can be achieved, if it can?
thanks

For certain services, yes. Not as a general feature.

What's the point? Connect to an UK server, then. PayPal will still be conviced it's a VPN, because the exit IP address is known to be one.

As written, certain services are supported. Make sure you're using AirDNS (= the AirVPN-provided DNS servers), then let AirDNS resolve one of those services. Your connection will be rerouted through special rerouting servers and unblock the requested georestricted content.

» I am not an AirVPN team member. All opinions are my own and are not to be considered official. Only the AirVPN Staff account should be viewed as such.

» The forums is a place where you can ask questions to the community. You are not entitled to guaranteed answer times. Answer quality may vary, too. If you need professional support, please create tickets.

» 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.
