    LZ1 reacted to pfSense_fan in Is it possible to route the traffic from my Xbox One through AirVpn?   ...
    You would need to use a router that routes all traffic through the VPN such as pfSense, Asus, Netgear etc that have OpenVPN.
     
    That being said you cannot port forward all the required ports for XBOX Live to function entirely and will have a strict NAT and have some services be unavailable at times, including chat.
     
    I use pfSense of course, but I do not run my consoles through the VPN, instead I employ a true isolated DMZ for them and allow UPNP only on that interface and only for those devices. This allows me to enjoy full functionality as well as top level security. I even have ad and tracking servers blocked on the DNS level for a bit of extra privacy. Keep in mind if you use XBOX Live this is generally attached to your true identity through your account so there is little value of the gaming traffic to go through the VPN, unless you are trying to hide gaming use from your ISP.

    Hello !
     
    It's not free, but you can ask for a free trial. However just because it's not free, it shouldn't be ruled out.
    It's one of the BEST VPNs out there and depending on what you're wanting to do, a free VPN may or may not be so useful.
    For instance, if you want to download stuff via P2P, a free service might have restrictions and not allow you to. Or have download limits
    or just be slow. Not to mention a free VPN can easily be insecure. I recommend you try AirVPN out. You can get 3 days for next to nothing! :].

    ATTENTION: This tutorial is out of date, incomplete and deprecated. 
    A new and improved version of this tutorial can be found here: https://airvpn.org/topic/24349-how-to-airvpn-via-sslstunnel-on-android-678/
     
     
    This thread is only kept online for historical reference.
     
     
     
     
     


    Goal and obstacles

    We want to use AirVPN's SSL tunneling mode on Android. SSL tunneling can be very useful, especially to defeat firewalls that block OpenVPN or SSH on a protocol level. On Android, a few obstacles have to be worked around:

    a. there is no AirVPN Eddie client for Android.
    Solution: We will use OpenVPN and stunnel directly.
    b. there is no stunnel app in any Android appstore.
    Solution: we will download the stunnel Android binary (provided by the stunnel project itself) and run it from the commandline.
    c. Android does not allow us to execute any programs from the sdcard.
    Solution: we will move stunnel to a special location (owned by the Terminal app), which will allow the Terminal app to execute stunnel.
    d. stunnel wants to write to /tmp/, but there's no /tmp/ on Android.
    Solution: we will modify the .ssl config file to change the pidfile location to a writable directory.





    Software RequirementsAndroid 4.0 or newer (device does not have to be rooted) stunnel compiled for Android (FOSS), via project website OpenVPN for Android (FOSS), via F-Droid or Play Store Jack Palevich's Terminal Emulator for Android (FOSS), via F-Droid or Play Store a separate computer to download/edit the necessary config files and binaries (entirely optional, but easier than doing everything on the Android device itself)



    Setup instructions

    1. Generate config files with AirVPN's config generatorchoose Linux pick one single server of your choice. I will use Nunki for this tutorial! for Connection Mode, choose SSL Tunnel, port 443 (visible after enabling Advanced Mode) enable Resolved hosts in .ovpn file leave all the other settings at their default values download and unzip the generated zip file this should result in an AirVPN folder, containing three files 2. Open the ssl config file (AirVPN_GB-Manchester_Nunki_SSL-443.ssl) in a text editor.

    Find the line:
    pid = /tmp/stunnel4.pidChange it to:
    pid = /data/data/jackpal.androidterm/app_HOME/stunnel4.pidSave and close the file.
     
    3. In a text editor, create a new file with the following contents:
    #!/system/bin/shcd /data/data/jackpal.androidterm/app_HOME./stunnel AirVPN_GB-Manchester_Nunki_SSL-443.sslSave it to a file named nunki (no file extension).
    Put the file into the AirVPN folder, next to our other config files.


    4. Download and unzip stunnel for Android from the stunnel website (stunnel-X.XX-android.zip)

    Put the stunnel file (only the file, not the folder) into the AirVPN folder.


    5. Make sure your AirVPN folder now contains the following files:
    AirVPN_GB-Manchester_Nunki_SSL-443.ovpnAirVPN_GB-Manchester_Nunki_SSL-443.sslnunkistunnelstunnel.crt6. Copy the whole AirVPN folder to your Android's SD card.

    The path should be:
    /sdcard/AirVPN/7. Install OpenVPN for Android via F-Droid or Play Store and import the .ovpn config file located at
    /sdcard/AirVPN/AirVPN_GB-Manchester_Nunki_SSL-443.ovpnDon't try to connect just yet.


    8. Install Terminal Emulator for Android, via F-Droid or Play Store


    9. Open Terminal Emulator and successively run the following commands:
    cdThe simple cd command should take you to the app's home directory (/data/data/jackpal.androidterm/app_HOME).
    This is where we need to put our config files and the stunnel binary. Let's move them over by running:
    mv /sdcard/AirVPN/* .It's important to type every character correctly (commandline is case sensitive); the "*" is a wildcard expanding to all files in the AirVPN folder, and the "." is a placeholder for the current directory /data/data/jackpal.androidterm/app_HOME. Typing commands on Android is a big pain, so I try to keep them as short as possible!

    Finally, we need to modify permissions for the binary and the script, allowing us to execute them:
    chmod 555 stunnel nunkiWe should be ready to go!





    Usage instructions

    I. Open Terminal Emulator and run the following two commands:
      cd ./nunkiA log message should appear: Configuration successful
    Great! Keep the Terminal app running, but use the Home button to get out.

    II. Open OpenVPN for Android and connect to the profile AirVPN_GB_Manchester_Nunki_SSL-443
    Unless something went wrong, you should get Initialization Sequence Completed - great!
    I recommend performing the usual leak tests and perhaps diving into OpenVPN's profile settings before relying on your configuration to work as you expect it to.


    III. To disconnect:
    Disconnect VPN in OpenVPN open Terminal Emulator, press VOLUME_DOWN + C to kill stunnel press the X button to close the terminal session IV. If stunnel isn't shutdown properly, you may see an error if you try to run stunnel again:
     
    [!] Error binding service [openvpn] to 127.0.0.1:1413[!] bind: Address already in use (98)[ ] Closing service [openvpn][ ] Service [openvpn] closedThis means stunnel is still running in the background. You can kill it by running:
     
    killall stunnel




    Footnotes

    I successfully followed my own tutorial using: CyanogenMod 12.1 nightly (≈ Android 5.1)stunnel 5.23OpenVPN for Android 0.6.35 (F-Droid)Terminal Emulator 1.0.70 (F-Droid)Testers welcome, especially if you're using different Android and software versions.

    Hello !
     
    I don't think it matters much. Once you enable Network Lock, it stays enabled .
    Correctly sign out by opening the app one way or another and clicking "Disconnect".
    Be aware that with Network Lock on, you won't have a connection if you disconnect or if you just wake up your PC
    without having disconnected the app through its own menus (I think it's a bug they're working on). In that case, if nothing
    works, you'll sometimes have to go into your IP and/or DNS settings and set things to their default routes to get a connection
    again.

    LZ1 reacted to Khariz in sky blocking websites   ...
    Okay, well, if you seeing anything about Sky at all, you don't have AirVPN configured correctly.
     
    You need to make sure you do these three things:
     
    1. Turn of any location services your device or browser may be using.
     
    2. Plug that WebRTC leak.
     
    3. Plug any DNS leaks.
     
    You had made progress when your error was ERR_CONNECTION_CLOSED but now you appear back to square one.
     
    For location services:
    In the URL bar, type about:config
    Type geo.enabled
    Double click on the geo.enabled preference
    Location-Aware Browsing is now disabled
     
    For WebRTC, make sure you do this:
    Enter "about:config" in the address bar and press enter
    Press the button "I'll be careful, I promise!"
    Type in "media.peerconnection.enabled" in the search bar (there should be only one entry)
    Right-click the entry choose "Toggle", the column "Value" should now be "false"
     
    For DNS leak protection, you need to either make sure the DNS options of eddie are enabled, use network lock, and ensure that the TAP adapter's DNS server is set to 10.4.0.1.

    Hello,
    Instead of reseting it manually every now and then, now you can do this automatically. And stay/be connected 24/7 through the VPN.
    The issue then when trying to connect remotely (e.g. office/other location) to the home computer that's connected to AirVPN.
    Your client IP will be reset to 10.3.0.1 or 169.x.x.x. In that case OpenVPN-GUI will still show Connected, but in fact it's not.
    1)This small batch file(see below) will ensure that the TAP-adapter will not disconnect.
    ---------------------------------dhcp.tap.adapter.bat-------------------------------------------
    @ECHO OFF
    :LOOP
    ECHO Waiting for 300 seconds....
    timeout /t 300
    netsh interface ip set address tapadapter DHCP
    netsh interface ip set address tapadapter DHCP
    netsh int ip set dns name = "tapadapter" source = dhcp
    ipconfig /all
    GOTO LOOP
    ---------------------------------dhcp.tap-adapter.bat-------------------------------------------

    2)After the connection has been established to AirVPN(UDP/TCP or OpenVPN over SSL/SSH) run the above file dhcp.tap.adapter.bat.
    Run as Admin if elevation is required.

    I don't think you fully understand the meaning, the so called Hall of Fame if it was to happen would only include VERY few members and likely be asked first if they wanna be on it not to mention having someones username in an official post by the staff is no different than me posting your username/displayname right here and now, infact I already did since the quote states it.
     
    Anyway by my opinion it could be an useful thing tho calling it Hall of Fame idk about but maybe something closer to Community Supporters or close to the same meaning where people can ask questions without having to ask the staff, as fast as the staff is they can't be around to answer questions day in and day out all the time having a list of voluntary people do so can come in handy for some users I imagine
     
    EDIT: Another idea as to where most people might look is to give them the title/group called Community Volunteer which is a worldwide term that doesn't exactly have to mean official staff but just a simple volunteer giving their services as a freelancer

    Hello !
     
    Despite the us' reputation, they don't require VPN providers to log I believe. AirVPN also upholds the same strict rules for all their servers, regardless of location.
    Because in short, if AirVPN didn't think they could maintain a server in location X that corresponds to their values and objectives, they simply wouldn't put a server there.
    Since AirVPN is a logless VPN, they pretty much don't have any logs to give, even IF they wanted to or were forced to, when a given entity requested it; but they don't
    comply with these things anyway.
     
    You can also check their new servers here and note how they all follow the same rules:

    Look at that, not only do they have integrity, but they gave us datalove! Now how many people do you know who do that?! Haha!
     
    I'd say on technical terms it's as secure connecting to a server in your home country. However I think it's generally a good idea to connect to one outside your own country,
    if you can. The whole point of a VPN however, is to protect your traffic. AirVPN itself doesn't mind if you use p2p at all and your ISP can't see what you're doing anyway.
    Just make sure you've got no leaks of any kind, whether IP, DNS or WebRTC leaks. You can check this at www.ipleak.com and see. If you don't see any of your own addresses
    there, then it's likely no one else does either; including your ISP.
     
    Also, you can check out this thread:
     
    https://airvpn.org/topic/16774-anonymous-vpn-providers-2016-edition-tf/

    Look at number 1. That's better than porn man, lol.
     
    In short, AirVPN is superior to most other services I think, both in terms of sheer technical know-how, but also ethics.
    They recently disowned ICANN, a huge internet institution, because basically long-story short, they suck and AirVPN doesn't accept suckers,
    because in short, AirVPN is much like Chuck Norris:
     

     
    And if you know who he is, you know that one does not simply deny Chuck Norris lmao.
     
    So finally, since your ISP doesn't know what you're doing, since you're using a VPN, you should be very safe regardless of what you're doing; of course, keep it clean lol, no serious crime. Also, unless latency is a really big issue for you or otherwise critical, you can just let the AirVPN client, called Eddie, automatically connect you to the recommended server at the time. If you go to your settings, you can
    make AirVPN start automatically and to enable Network Lock automatically. This way, even if you forget, then all your traffic will still be routed through AirVPN; even
    if there's connection issues (normally called a kill switch). I always enable Network Lock at login. It's quite sweet. This way you're sure nothing leaks out of your VPN tunnel.
     
    Oh and P2P itself isn't illegal. It's just a way of doing things. It's *what* you download which can be illegal, haha. Not the protocols themselves.
    But don't worry. If you're just an occasional downloader, then it's fairly unlikely you'll get into trouble. I mean, there's people out there who make a lifestyle out of
    downloading lol. Just make sure you have a good Bittorent client, such as qBittorent and that its settings are ok.

    Look at that, not only do they have integrity, but they gave us datalove! Now how many people do you know who do that?! Haha!
     
    I'd say on technical terms it's as secure connecting to a server in your home country. However I think it's generally a good idea to connect to one outside your own country,
    if you can. The whole point of a VPN however, is to protect your traffic. AirVPN itself doesn't mind if you use p2p at all and your ISP can't see what you're doing anyway.
    Just make sure you've got no leaks of any kind, whether IP, DNS or WebRTC leaks. You can check this at www.ipleak.com and see. If you don't see any of your own addresses
    there, then it's likely no one else does either; including your ISP.
     
    Also, you can check out this thread:
     
    https://airvpn.org/topic/16774-anonymous-vpn-providers-2016-edition-tf/
     
    There you can see the questions posed and what AirVPN specifically, answered to each of them. So you can see number 1, 4, 5 and 6 for instance.
     
    Look at number 1. That's better than porn man, lol.
     
    In short, AirVPN is superior to most other services I think, both in terms of sheer technical know-how, but also ethics.
    They recently disowned ICANN, a huge internet institution, because basically long-story short, they suck and AirVPN doesn't accept suckers,
    because in short, AirVPN is much like Chuck Norris:
     

     
    And if you know who he is, you know that one does not simply deny Chuck Norris lmao.
     
    So finally, since your ISP doesn't know what you're doing, since you're using a VPN, you should be very safe regardless of what you're doing; of course, keep it clean lol, no serious crime. Also, unless latency is a really big issue for you or otherwise critical, you can just let the AirVPN client, called Eddie, automatically connect you to the recommended server at the time. If you go to your settings, you can
    make AirVPN start automatically and to enable Network Lock automatically. This way, even if you forget, then all your traffic will still be routed through AirVPN; even
    if there's connection issues (normally called a kill switch). I always enable Network Lock at login. It's quite sweet. This way you're sure nothing leaks out of your VPN tunnel.
     
    Oh and P2P itself isn't illegal. It's just a way of doing things. It's *what* you download which can be illegal, haha. Not the protocols themselves.
    But don't worry. If you're just an occasional downloader, then it's fairly unlikely you'll get into trouble. I mean, there's people out there who make a lifestyle out of
    downloading lol. Just make sure you have a good Bittorent client, such as qBittorent and that its settings are ok.
     
    I hope this answers your questions. If not, wait until master zhang or lord giganerd arrive or any of the other disciples of AirVPN.

    LZ1 got a reaction from User of AirVPN in Possible Iceland Server Poll   ...
    Indeed, but just imagine the irony of Icelandic servers succumbing to a coldboot attack.
     
    Incredible right?
     
    I've never heard AirVPN talk about protections against such attacks, while another VPN provider couldn't stress it enough; so they ran their servers in RAM or something.
     
    But still, coldboot attack on an Icelandic server would be pretty funny; if you have poor humor like me.

    LZ1 got a reaction from 4non in Privacy Question on US AirVPN Servers   ...
    Hello !
     
    Despite the us' reputation, they don't require VPN providers to log I believe. AirVPN also upholds the same strict rules for all their servers, regardless of location.
    Because in short, if AirVPN didn't think they could maintain a server in location X that corresponds to their values and objectives, they simply wouldn't put a server there.
    Since AirVPN is a logless VPN, they pretty much don't have any logs to give, even IF they wanted to or were forced to, when a given entity requested it; but they don't
    comply with these things anyway.
