  1. It does. Thanks. I did read the FAQ. I guess my real question is when do I care about latency vs bandwidth, or should I? Should I just not worry about it and let the client choose the best server unless I need a server in a specific region for some reason? Thanks again for your time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Hi community, Been using AirVPN for a couple years. Very happy. No issues. Except for port forwarding I've always used AirVPN at the simplest level, but I'm curious about using some of the more advanced features of the platform. Just curious about choosing the best / fastest server at any given time. Or maybe I'm just curious what causes the server to be the best one at any given time? Not sure. I have noticed when using Eddie on my Mac, and I let it automatically pick the server it tends to pick a Canadian server for me even though I'm in the US. When I have the servers sorted by faster, the Canadian ones are always at the top of the list. When I have it sorted by latency the US ones are at the top of the list. The same hold true on my when using OpenVPN on iOS and the an "Americas" config generated UDP file. I assume when I am using the "Americas" file it OpenVPN is just picking the fastest server? On a simple level I understand why the US ones are at the top of the latency list, cause I'm closer, right? So why doesn't low latency translate into the fastest server? When should latency be the priority vs speed and vise versa? Should I be picking servers based on what I'm doing? Or is it always best to let Eddie / Open VPN choose? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. Okay. That helps. Thank you. Does network lock adjust firewall settings on OS X behind the scenes? Because I looked at my firewall settings with the network lock active and didn't notice anything different. So if the AirVPN client disconnects, for whatever reason, I'm no longer in the "tunnel", or protected correct? I get that. Seems pretty straight forward. And if this happens and I have selected the network lock option at the bottom of the AirVPN client (right under the the connect button) then theoretically my Mac will think I no longer have a network connection at all until the AirVPN client reconnects to one of it's servers somewhere, correct? So what I should see with network lock active and the AirVPN client disconnected for whatever reason should I try to open a website is the standard "no network connection" in Safari where the web page would be? Even though I really am connected, the network lock is basically tricking the Mac thinking that no network connection exists to keep me from accidentally transmitting something I don't want too should I get disconnected from the AirVPN network? Thanks for the your patients and help. RM
  4. Can someone please explain Network Lock to me in layman terms? And why/when I would want to use it? I read the FAQ on the subject, but I still don't quite get the purpose is or exactly what it does. I am running OS X 10.3 and the Eddie 2.8.8. Everything seems to be working as it should so I don't have a problem per se, I would just like to fully understand the AirVPN service and features. Thanks
  5. I tried using the lock functions from within the AirVPN software and didn't have any luck. I had to go into the network options on my Mac and and under the specific network adapter I was using change IPv6 configuration to "Local Link Only". Not sure what this does, but everything seems to be working as it should.
  6. Just got back from Japan. Everything was working fine. Now I'm having the same problem. Not really a problem...unless I'm not really connected/protected...then it's a problem. Tough to tell because of the conflicting info.
