Trying to use a proxy

Recommended Posts

I am trying to use the location of a country that AirVPN dosan't have a server in so I decided to use a proxy to be the next hop after the VPN exit server but eddie just won't work. When I enter the details of the socks4 proxy into my browser and not using AirVPN it works just fine, my I.P address and DNS are in the country I want. But I am trying to use an application behind this proxy which is why I was hoping to send it through the VPN's tunnel and into this proxy. When I enter the details into the proxy section of eddie and access a server it tells me that there is an authorization issue which is odd as this proxy doesn't require a username and password and as I said I can use it in my browser without the need to enter credentials. I've attached a log file, would anyone be able to help me with this?

Hello!

It seems the proxy does not accept connections from OpenVPN but anyway this approach (OpenVPN over proxy) is not what you want, because if you connected OpenVPN over that proxy, your packets would have the VPN server as last hop, so the final service would again see the VPN server exit-IP address.

To achieve your purpose, connect OpenVPN normally, then configure your software to connect to the proxy (make sure you start the software after the VPN connection has been established). In this way, this, and only this, software will have its traffic tunneled over the proxy over OpenVPN, and the final "exit node" is the proxy itself. It remains to be seen, however, whether the proxy will accept connections from our VPN servers IP addresses.

Remember: data transiting through the proxy server will not be protected anymore by OpenVPN encryption. Make sure you enforce end-to-end encryption.

Kind regards
