  1. I appreciate the responses so far. Are the Advanced Members that have been responding part of the AirVPN staff? If not, I would also really like to hear directly from AirVPN about this.




    FYI: Disabling SIP ALG on my Netgear WINR200V4 router did not fix the problem.


    However, adding the WebRTC Block Extension from the Chrome Store seems to fix the problem on Chrome (Windows 8.1).


    what was your problem?  was your real ISP IP address showing up?  if only the VPN IP address was showing up then there's really no problem.  of course, you can still block it (in Chrome ) or shut it off (Firefox) if you desire.

  2. Well, interesting development.  I rebooted my router and Win 7 machine and tested connections to 4 different VPN companies from my router and this test only showed the VPN WAN each time.  So, I don't know what caused the "leak" in previous tests.  I'll have to keep an eye on it.


    I happen to be testing two other VPN companies right now for a replacement for one I've had for a while. I plan on keeping Air for the foreseeable future.


    I wanted to test their configs because they use other openvpn options dealing with routes and topology etc that Air doesn't use.

  3. OK, did the test with Eddy 2.8 on my win 7 64k machine.


    with network lock OFF, it could still see my ISP WAN address, and also saw AirVPN address.


    with network lock ON, it could only see AirVPN address.


    regarding my router, Asus AC68, UPnP has always been turned off by my choice.  But, not sure what setting would control ALG.  Anybody know?

  4. go558a83nk, even without any firewalling, I have yet to understand how exactly WebRTC/STUN is able to figure out your WAN while a VPN tunnel is established and set as the one and only route - i will do some testing on this tomorrow; in any case, if your firewall:

    - denies all incoming traffic

    - denies all outgoing traffic except to AirVPN entry server(s)


    then there's no way for any application, including browser/WebRTC, to obtain your WAN address. They can phone home but it'll either happen via VPN or it'll fail. AirVPN's Eddie client comes with a similar "network lock" feature.


    I run VPN on my router and it was able to see VPN and ISP IP addresses. :-(

  5. if you can install optware or entware on the router (eg on a usb memory stick attached) then you should be able to install stunnel


    I am doing so on my Asus AC68 with merlin firmware.



    Could you point me to an HowTo or give me some hints?

    I'm running actual MerlinWRT on my Asus 68U with airvpn without SSL and it would be nice to switch to SSL tunnel.

    oh, since you have an asus ac68 you need to also use the forums at http://forums.smallnetbuilder.com/forumdisplay.php?f=42 to get information.


    And look through merlin's wiki to learn how to install optware https://github.com/RMerl/asuswrt-merlin/wiki


    once optware is installed you should be able to install stunnel with 'ipkg install stunnel'


    unless you're in a place that requires an SSL tunnel to masq openvpn (China) or your ISP throttles openvpn you'll probably only see a decrease in performance.

  6. Nice tip! This also serves as a good test of your firewall setup. On a properly firewalled system, this test will reveal all your LAN, but not WAN addresses.


    can you please explain more about a firewall setup that would prevent them from seeing the WAN address?

  7. Seems they've lost the plot here a little bit when it comes to Tor.  They won't compromise on their position of not discriminating against any protocol, etc.  However, when using that protocol discriminates against other users, Air needs to step in and make sure that all users are able to do what they want in a fair manner.


    They would probably tell you to find another server for now.


    no doubt there is a lot of internet terrorism going on.  ddos attacks and such.  one of the private bittorrent trackers I use has been pretty much offline for a couple weeks now.  Anyway, I wouldn't be surprised if datacenters that Air uses are under attack.


    This is pure speculation. Until the staff says otherwise, I don't think AirVPN is under attack.

    Yep, "I wouldn't be surprised if" means speculation.  Any reason why you felt you needed to protect people from my LACK of statement of fact?  And I went on to say the "datacenter", not AirVPN.  You do realize the datacenter houses a lot more than just Air, right?

  9. I have the ac68 with merlin firmware and can get 35mbit/s which is my ISP connection max.  Looking at the CPU usage, I'm sure I can go significantly faster.


    Perhaps it's because you are using shibby tomato?  Of course, it also depends on what server you are using and your ISP's bandwidth from that server back to your computer.
