  1. I'm not sure where you've read from Air about not using the same port.  What they said was that you shouldn't open ports on your router from the WAN interface to your LAN.  That's what the router GUI does.  The rules I've given you forward from TUN to LAN.

     

    Make sure your torrent client is listening on the port that Air assigns you and that that port is forwarded to the proper IP address with the IP tables.  The port checker will show the port as closed if there is no server listening on that port.

     

    Finally, it's best to SSH into the router and paste in the correct IP tables at the prompt.  I don't know if your other method works.


  2. Study up on advanced ddwrt usage and read ddwrt forums. If you can install and run stunnel you're 90% done.

     

    If you have an Asus router I know it can be done by using Merlin firmware and installing entware. Entware then allows you to install many other packages common to Linux, including stunnel.


  3. I probed all servers a few weeks ago: All servers added to AirVPN since 19 Jun 2015 use TLSv1.2. All other servers use TLSv1.

     

    I don't think it makes much of a difference but it'd still be interesting to hear from staff what they changed in their infrastructure and whether they plan to upgrade the older servers as well.

     

    Interesting.  I do know that Etamin was using TLS1.2 though it was added in May.  Perhaps the change to TLS1.2 occurred during one of the maintenance sessions it had recently?


  4. you'll need your kindle fire hd to use a VPN tunnel to the UK then.  probably easiest to just run VPN on a router so that all clients of the router (e.g. kindle fire hd and whatever else) will go through the VPN tunnel.


  5.  

    the whole webRTC thing needs to just die.  it's not up to a VPN provider to protect you from a web browser function.

     

    In my opinion you shouldn't consider webRTC blockage in your review.  users should instead just disable it in their browser if they don't want it.

     

    To be fair, only Firefox-based browsers allow WebRTC to be disabled. Some extensions such as uBlock and Chrome's add-on allow leaks to be plugged, but they don't disable WebRTC completely. As 'leaks' are only an issue for those behind a VPN, it makes sense for VPN providers to offer a workaround, or at least some advice on how to achieve it. Since the OP's data is just that - raw data without any recommendation - I wouldn't call it a 'review'. That's not a negative, far from it. It's hard to find quantitative data about VPN companies, and I think the OP did a decent job. 

     

    One thing that really bugs me about VPN 'reviews' in general is the speed tests. They are invariably carried out by someone on a <15 Mbps connection. Just... why? If nothing else for the love of God rent a decent gigabit plus VPS and set up a connection on there and leech some well seeded torrents. Plenty of 'superb high speed' VPN companies can't even half saturate my 160Mbps connection. Air does (usually).

     

    why should the VPN provider be the one to provide a workaround?  why shouldn't the user just change browsers?

  7. At least 1000mhz? That's what the Netgear Nighthawks are clocked at, and outside of industrial gear, they're pretty much the fastest out there, so that's basically saying getting tolerable performance is impossible.

     

    I'm not looking to get anywhere near 100% of my speed, but getting near half would be nice.

     

    get an asus AC56 if greater cost is prohibitive.  those CPU can be overclocked to 1200megahertz.  50mbit/s openvpn is possible.


  8. Air uses

    TLSv1, cipher TLSv1/SSLv3 DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA, 4096 bit RSA

    for the control channel.

     

    I've noticed another VPN provider of mine is now using

    TLSv1.2, cipher TLSv1/SSLv3 DHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384, 4096 bit RSA

     

     

    Is there any reason to worry that Air still uses a TLSv1.0 control channel cipher?


  9. I had a similar question. Right now I have Asus AC68 with latest Merlin firmware and my download speeds seems to be capped at 10 mbps. My ISP is 100 mbps up/down. I also have a Netgear R7000 setup as an access point with stock firmware but haven't tried OpenVPN on it yet. I know the R7000 has a slightly faster processor. 

     

    Any recommendations or experience of whether it's worth it to switch the OpenVPN to the R7000? Flash to DD-WRT? What should be the expected throughput? Any way to make the Asus router faster? dd-wrt?

     

    Thanks for the feedback in advance!

     

    maybe your ISP is throttling you?  I use the AC68 and, believe me, it can do better.
