Using AirVPN over TOR

Recommended Posts

you have right... the port is 9150 but then Tor tell me:

[Warning] socks5: command 3 not recognized. Rejecting.

[Warning] Fetching socks handshake failed. Closing.

and openvpn's log tell me the same previous thing...

Hello!

Can you please make sure that you select a TCP port for the OpenVPN connection? Also, are you running some wrapper/GUI or OpenVPN directly?

Kind regards

Sorry if i'm not explaining very well... however i'm using native openvpn... and udp, so i think it's that the problem. how can i change the protocol? i've to change only the "proto udp" with "proto tcp" line in the config of openvpn?

Hello,

I'm trying to using AirVPN with TOR as described here:

https://airvpn.org/tor/

I'm on a Mac and using Tunnelblick, but it seems it can't connect to the VPN, the log gives this error:

TCP: connect to 127.0.0.1:9050 failed, will try again in 5 seconds: Connection refused

Tor Browser Bundle is running. Do I have to change settings at the Tor Browser?

Thanks for your help

Hello!

It seems that the proxy is not listening to port 9050 (or it is not running). Maybe is it listening to some other port?

In Vidalia, open "Settings"->"Advanced" and uncheck the box that says 'Configure ControlPort automatically'. Your SOCKS port will then be 9050.

Kind regards

Thanks, that worked. I can connect now to the VPN, but there are other problems now:

1. When connected to the VPN I can't open any website, no connection possible. I tried this in the TOR browser and in other browsers.

2. The Tunnelblick VPN connection last only for about one minute. Then it disconnects for no obvious reason.

Any help on this?

Hello!

Are you trying the connection to a TCP or an UDP port?

I guess I'm trying to connect to a TCP port. Unfortunately, I'm not really a tech guy. But I'll try to explain again what I need: basically what I want is use AirVPN with TOR so I can access a certain website that otherwise refuses Tor connection. So I installed Torbrowser bundle and Tunnelblick. In Vidalia, I unchecked "Configure Control Port automatically" and I now have these settings: ControlPort 9051, SocksPort 9050

I then created a VPN configuration file at https://airvpn.org/direct_access/ with these settings:

Protocol: TCP

Port: 443

Proxy: Socks, 127.0.0.1, 9050

Now I can connect to the VPN with Tunnelblick, but the connection breaks after around 1 minute. Also, once the VPN connection is up I can't connect to any website using any of my browsers – maybe this is an DNS issue?

I am having the same issue but on Windows XP using AdvOR. I am using only TCP ports on both TOR and the VPN. It connects just fine but when I open Chrome and try and go to ANY website the VPN connection drops. Any ideas why this might happen would be greatly appreciated.

FYI, I am connecting to TOR first, then the VPN using the OpenVPN GUI. Also, I created the AirVPN connection to use the Proxy as well.

I have Zero problems if I simply connect to AirVPN without TOR. Everything works great.

Bubbba

Hello!

Just after the unexpected disconnection, can you please send us the complete Tunnelblick logs?

In order to determine if it's a DNS issue (at least during the 1 min connection...), please send us the output of the following commands (issued from a command shell):

ping 10.4.0.1

ping airvpn.org

Finally, if you don't connect over a proxy, does Tunnelblick connect fine?

Kind regards

When not connecting over a proxy, Tunnelblick is working fine.

Here's the ping results (during the time connected to the VPN over Proxy):

ping 10.4.0.1

Request timeout for icmp_seq 0

Request timeout for icmp_seq 1

Request timeout for icmp_seq 2

Request timeout for icmp_seq 3

ping airvpn.org

This command gives no output at all

Here's the log output after losing the connection:

2013-03-09 19:07:48 Connection reset, restarting [0]

2013-03-09 19:07:48 TCP/UDP: Closing socket

Hello!

It's not a DNS issue... apparently you have no connectivity at all when trying to connect over a proxy.

Can you please try Viscosity for testing purposes? It's not open source and it's a commercial product, but Sparklabs offer 1 month free evaluation:

http://www.sparklabs.com/viscosity

Maybe it's an DNS issue indeed. After connecting to the VPN, this address show up as my DNS Server: 10.7.0.1

I can't ping this address, meaning I don't have access to an DNS server. Strange.

Hello!

Probably not, 10.7.0.1 is the DNS address DHCP-pushed by our servers when you connect to 80 TCP.

Since Viscosity fails as well, probably it's worth checking something else in your system. Do you have any program which might interfere, such as LittleSnitch? Check also your firewall rules, please. Can you establish successfully connections over TOR alone? Can you please try a connection (OpenVPN over TOR again) to port 53 TCP?

Kind regards

Hello!

Please make sure that the Socks Port is correct. Usually 9051 is the Control Port, not the Socks Port (OpenVPN must connect to the Socks Port).

seems like ping 10 is not performed successfully and ping-restart 60 occurs. However, ping-restart fails due to "recv_socks_reply: TCP port read timeout expired: Operation now in progress (errno=115)" This sequence makes me think that the trouble is somewhere n here:

1. why ping 10 fails?

2. why ping-restart fails?

3. what is "recv_socks_reply: TCP port read timeout expired: Operation now in progress (errno=115)"?

Any ideas?

Tor by itself works without any troubles.

Also I am not specialist in routing, so can anyone explain in details this little magic about new routes:

Mar 20 01:16:38 localhost openvpn[5214]: /sbin/ip route add 127.0.0.1/32 via 10.1.1.1

Mar 20 01:16:38 localhost openvpn[5214]: /sbin/ip route add 0.0.0.0/1 via 10.5.2.145

Mar 20 01:16:38 localhost openvpn[5214]: /sbin/ip route add 128.0.0.0/1 via 10.5.2.145

Mar 20 01:16:38 localhost openvpn[5214]: /sbin/ip route add 10.5.0.1/32 via 10.5.2.145

especially this one:

route add 127.0.0.1/32 via 10.1.1.1

why 127.0.0.1 should be accessed via 10.1.1.1? May here be a trouble with routing?

Hello!

It might be an OpenVPN 2.2.x bug:

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=657964

See also these messages:

http://readlist.com/lists/lists.sourceforge.net/openvpn-users/2/12784.html

http://readlist.com/lists/lists.sourceforge.net/openvpn-users/2/12785.html

However, we are currently unable to reproduce the behavior with OpenVPN 2.2.1 on Debian 6 and Debian 7 64 bit. Which OpenVPN version are you running?

Kind regards

Looks like there is no RPM for 2.3.0 available so far - need to build it from source. Need some time to get this running.

Meanwhile, can you please explain second part of my question - regarding routing. I am still confused with oute add 127.0.0.1/32 via 10.1.1.1 - is it right?

Got

[server] Inactivity timeout (--ping-restart), restarting

which makes me think that ping 10 failed and ping-restart failed as well due to TCP port read timeout

May be I am mistaken, but still, may be this is routing issue?

routing looks like this during that 60 seconds before ping-restart occurs:

Kernel IP routing table

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hello!

Apparently you edited the OpenVPN configuration file with the directive "remote 127.0.0.1". However, in order to allow OpenVPN to connect over a socks proxy, you must specify it through the "socks-proxy" directive. The "remote" directive must always point to the entry-IP of the VPN server you wish to connect to (over the proxy) otherwise OpenVPN has no way to set the correct routing table. Compare your configuration file with the configuration files generated by our configuration generator with the proxy option enabled.

If you did so, is there any particular reason for which you needed this solution? If it is mandatory for you to keep this setup, probably adding a route manually could solve. Otherwise you should revert to the "canonical" OpenVPN setup to connect over a proxy.

We're looking forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards
