  1. VPN's aren't required to Log in the USA but if there is abuse committed on the VPN then they can easily be forced to Log.

     

     

     

     

     

    Using VPS servers means you are sharing a 1Gbps Port with other users on that server so that would mean their bandwidth is a lie and that would also mean they lied on their Torrentfreak Questions as they say they own their own servers. Can you find the link as to where this is confirmed ? Does AIR use their own hardware? with Dedicated servers? really its the only way to be sure that the VPN servers are not logging as with a VPS you can't be sure what the datacentre is doing. 

     

    Air's stated they use all dedicated servers on the vpn infrastructure.

    There's a thread around here somewhere 'still looking for it' where someone posted the ip's of several pia servers. Those ip's were living on vps's. Edit found it: https://airvpn.org/topic/14326-question-regarding-airvpns-your-ip/?p=28310

     

    For me I would worry more about vps security/separation from other virtualized environments running on the same machine. Virtualization tech hasn't exactly had the greatest track record where security is concerned.

     

    ie. Worst case scenario: someone setting up shop on a vps running on the same machine as the vpn vps could silently Farm gold...

     

    pretty sure I refuted that claim.  the person who proposed they were VPS never replied to my refutation.  why?  and why do you carry on with the probable false claim?

    -probable:

    supported by evidence strong enough to establish presumption but not proof.

     

    I'm sorry but if there's even a 1% chance that they currently, or have in the past used vps's servers then not trusting them is my prerogative. And I carry on with this probable false claim because its my right to do so. -Freedom of speech, its why many are here.

     

    Frankly Its not my job to prove them reliable, secure or otherwise. Nor should it be yours.

     

    Even if the whole vps issue never came to light, for me it wouldn't make any difference. Because I would never use a vpn company based out of a location that requires you by law to log. One would think that fact alone would be enough to temper the fury of all but the most hardcore fanboys. Just ask yourself how long could a US company stay in business while breaking the law.

     

    I have no facts, but the answer to the above question should be self evident.

     

    the same can be said of AirVPN and any VPN if the request from authority is lawful.  see https://airvpn.org/topic/7181-clarification-of-your-monitoring-policies/?do=findComment&comment=29972

    can you point me to the law in the USA that requires VPN to log?

  4. yeah, the AC3200 is still getting sorted out.  the AC87 would be faster than the AC68 stock, just FYI.  But, it's still getting sorted as well.  anyway, if getting Asus routers Merlin firmware is the way to go.


  5. can't access the WAN literally or do you mean that nothing "works"?  I would imagine it's your use of comcast DNS while connected to VPN.  comcast probably rejects any DNS queries from IP other than their own network.  In this case it would be coming from the VPN exit IP.

     

    you should certainly set your DNS to something other than ISP DNS to avoid their logging.  In the openvpn client page set "accept DNS configuration" to exclusive.  That way you'll be sure to use AirVPN DNS.


  6. i use: Js Switch, Toggle Cookies, Ublock Origin, No Script, Flag Fox and Down Them All. in my opinion less is better https Everywhere is just as much of a joke as https is. the key is more in about:config i can post my about:config settings for u guys if u like i have most in a text for my vbox installs.

     

    https is a joke?


  7.  

    you make negative remarks for the use of google DNS and yet you're using a google doc spreadsheet and have a gmail address.

     

    I don't know any other service with which you can view spreadsheets online. I only know it for documents, e.g. Etherpad. Can you recommend something?

     

    I wish I could.  I use google docs where appropriate but I also don't mind using google public DNS.  I was just questioning the principle of disliking one google product while using another. 


  8. If you are portforwarding with AirVPN - DO NOT OPEN THE PORTS IN YOUR ROUTER.

     

    Simply forward the port in the Client Area to go to the connection you need, if necessary you can have a differing external and internal port if you cannot change the port of the NAS. You can then access the NAS via <AirVPN external IP>:<Forwarded Port>.

    Please do not hesitate to ask questions if you do not understand anything.

     

    sorry, @eyes878, the OP is running openvpn on the router, not using Air's client on a LAN machine.  therefore, ports must be opened/forwarded on the router.


  9. hem, I use the Windows 8.1 airvpn software on my 2 machines to connect to the vpn servers.

    Not sure if that answers your question ^^

     

    well, then it would be important to see the logs from the eddie application.


  10. Hello all,

     

    Installed Merlin after doing a factory reset and till now it runs smoothly. Obviously I now have a lot more options to tweak the VPN connection. I like that. It's like the candy store of router options...

     

    Anything special I should turn on to increase security?

     

    I also tried to use policy routing for VPN but that did not work. I wanted to route everything through VPN except a couple of connections to some websites. So I first added

    192.168.0.0/24     0.0.0.0/0     VPN

    to redirect everything through VPN but after that airvpn shows me as not connected and my WAN IP, as well as whatismyipaddress.com/

     

    Tried it the other way round and only added 192.168.0.0/24 or my computer's LAN IP and the IP of airvpn but for the same effect: Not connected. Weird.

     

     

    sorry for the late reply.  my internet was out yesterday after a storm.

     

    1) you say you installed merlin after a factory reset.  The factory reset needs to happen *after* you do the firmware upgrade.

     

    2) if you added your computer's LAN IP for all destinations through VPN then I would say your VPN isn't connecting.  please check out the system log.

     

    first things first - do a factory reset *after* firmware upgrade.
