  1. Today I bought a trial of PIA just to test it out and see how it compared to AirVPN. Well, I installed the PIA client on my Windows computer and wasn't satisfied with PIA, so I uninstalled PIA, uninstalled the TAP driver, then uninstalled Eddie as well to make sure nothing went wrong. Well, it did go wrong somehow. I reinstalled Eddie, logged in, it automatically installed the TAP driver again, and then it wouldn't connect to any servers at all, so I uninstalled and reinstalled again, restarted my PC, and now when I connect to a server with Network Lock on, it looks like there is a DNS error of some sort. Previously, when I went to ipleak.net, the DNS testing was near instant and it said "1 server". Now, it takes a very long time for it to test the DNS and it says "0 servers, 100 errors". Also, loading websites works at first, but 3 or 4 minutes after connecting to VPN, domain names will just not resolve. I type in google.com or airvpn.org and it just stays loading forever. Please help, I have no idea what is wrong either because the Eddie log is perfectly normal as if there were no issues. I have restarted the PC a few more times and uninstalled and re installed Eddie a few times but still no dice
  2. Hi, when, if ever will there be more Japan servers? (Question to staff) At least another one would be nice. It's the ONLY server which gives a good latency when connecting from China. For example, the Japan based Iskandar server can achieve 79ms whereas all the others start at 190ms + when connecting from China. Can other China users verify this is the case for them, too? (All China users reading this please comment about your latency!....)
  3. Source: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/voracle-attack-can-recover-http-data-from-vpn-connections/ Hello everyone, I've recently read that article above about this new attack called VORACLE that can possibly allow an attacker to recover data from HTTP traffic sent through a VPN. I've searched these forums for anything mentioning voracle but no results so I'm starting this topic out of interest and concern, and some questions for AirVPN staff. Is AirVPN completely protected from this new attack? Or is this something that AirVPN needs to *address and what can/will be done, if not why? What can AirVPN users do against this if anything or what are the exact steps to configure inside Eddie if anything? (*With the above quote in-mind does AirVPN need to do the same for its service?) Appreciate any replies and interest in the matter. Thanks.
  4. I recently stumbled upon the AirVPN API. I'd like to use it but the data provided by the api seems to be lacking information about the second generation servers, i.e. additional entry IPs and ipv6 IPs (and whether those features are available). Am I missing something or - if my assumption is correct - are there any plans to update the API to include the missing data?
  5. I run OSX 10.12.6 I'm using Eddie 2.15.2 I'm using the latest TBB I've had no problem running Tor over Airvpn with a tor exit node prior to the Internet. I'm trying to run Airvpn over Tor with the Airvpn server prior to the internet. I've looked at https://airvpn.org/tor, as well as every other document that seemed related to my issue. I start the tor browser first, then the Eddie client. I'm able to make a connection from Eddie to tor with the test button within the Eddie client. I'm also able to connect to an airvpn server. However, when I test what my ip address is from the tor browser, it returns the tor exit node address, not the airvpn server address. And when I try another browser, which is not proxied through tor, the ip address returned is that of the airvpn server address. So essentially what I'm seeing is Tor over Airvpn, not Airvpn over Tor. The only difference between connecting using the "tor" proxy in Eddie preferences instead of "none" is that I no longer can directly access .onion sites. Any insight into this issue would be appreciated. AirvpnLog.txt AirvpnSystemReport.txt
  6. Greetings, I've searched for forums, but couldn't find a concrete answer. Is it possible to use AirVPN as a proxy server? I'd like to run it, but NOT have it redirect all traffic through air's vpn, only specific browser traffic that I point to it. I'm looking at using Switchy! for chrome, which can route traffic through a proxy based on domain name (or other rules), and am wondering if I can setup AirVPN to be used as the proxy to go through when these rules trigger.
  7. Apparently it is as easy as adding the following to the client/server OPVN files: http://my.host.net.nz/2014/04/12/adding-perfect-forward-secrecy-to-openvpn/ Create a common private key, eg openvpn --genkey --secret /path/to/store/pfs.key Securely distribute this key to each OpenVPN client, then add the following to the server tls-servertls-auth /path/to/store/pfs.key 0 and this to each client tls-clienttls-auth /path/to/store/pfs.key 1 Without this, using OpenVPN standalone will lack some essential security features.
  8. Will this enhance security and reduce chances of DNS leakages on AirVPN? Or can this cause problems? Thank you so much!
  9. Just a short question to the admins here. I would like to use the AirVPN DNS servers on my VPN routers. The manuals (DD-WRT and Tomato) are referring to the Specs Page but I can't find them there anymore.
  10. Super newbie here, apologies in advance: I'm new to AirVPN and VPNs in general. I'm trying to use qBittorent without any of my information leaking and I don't want lawyers and ISPs sending me letters anymore (got the letters before subscribing to AirVPN). Anyways, I read some tutorials here in setting things up for torrenting but some are old (from 2015) and some things explained were complicating to me. To sum it up- how do I go about setting everything up to torrent? OS: Windows 10 64-bit Location: Germany Firewall: Standard Windows one What I did so far: Went into qBittorrent and changed Global Connection limits and maximum connections to 1250 and 250, unchecked the UPnP/NAT -PMP. Thanks in advance for your help!
  11. Over the past few months of using AirVPN alongside Virgin Media I have had nothing but issues. I am either unable to get the full bandwidth that I pay for, or my connection drops so frequently that it makes browsing almost impossible. I want to say a huge thank you to the AirVPN community and the people over at AirVPN as well for all of their support. I have learnt a lot over the last few months and I wanted to take the time to share my findings so that anyone else that had these issues could attempt the same things as I did and perhaps it will help you too. The Bandwidth cut Firstly lets talk about bandwidth issues. I have a fibre connection that without my VPN service I receive the 150meg I pay for. No sooner do I switch on the VPN I face drops of 75%. With the help of this post: https://airvpn.org/topic/12473-virgin-media-openvpn-low-speeds-throttlingbug/ rainmakerraw posted saying that by using the SSL protocols through EDDIE he was able to regain the lost bandwidth faced by using the VPN service. I figured this could work in the AirVPN program and after contacting the AirVPN team who advised changing this setting in AirVPN's protocols to SSL port 80 I saw that my speeds jumped to around 50% of my total bandwidth. For what I use the internet for, this was more than acceptable so I didn't mind taking a 50% cut so long as my anonymity was safe. METHOD: In the AirVPN program click the AirVPN logo in the top left corner: Next hit the preferences button: And then go to the protocols section and select the SSL port 80 radio button: This should now give you boost on your speeds while running AirVPN with Virgin Media. However, my story doesn't end there. The connection drop For a short time I was able to enjoy absolute anonymity and with only a 50% drop in service. I could live with this, until my connection began drop constantly. Initially this was very intermittent, and I simply disconnected from the current server and just hit reconnect. Issue fixed. However, this started to become extremely frequent, to the point that I was only able to browse for around 5 minutes before the connection dropped and I was shown a DNS error on websites I was trying to access. I could not seem to find anyone on these forums with the same issue, nor anyone with a solution. I knew that it had to be my ISP causing the problem as this did not exist anywhere else. However, I did find whisper on some other sites about Windows 10 causing problems with VPN services. It seems we live in a world governed by people hell bent on watching our every move, and at any cost they will try their best to succeed in this. Thankfully there are far smarter nerds out there capable of finding a solution. After a bit of searching I came across this post: https://www.bestvpn.com/blog/28318/warning-windows-10-vpn-users-at-big-risk-of-dns-leaks-2/ Which suggested that within Windows 10's group policies there was an option causing a few issues regarding DNS leaking. I had checked several times on https://dnsleaktest.com/ as well as https://ipleak.net/ as to whether this might be the cause of my problem but found no issues. That being said I wanted to add this here as I feel it could be of some use to people. Now, this is a guide for Windows 7 users but it works on Windows 10 (I will assume you are using this), however, it only works for Windows 10 pro. Windows 10 Home does not have the group policy software included, and after a little tinkering I managed to get it installed but there was no option to remove the "Smart Multi-Homed Name Resolution". So it didn't help me. However, if you have 10 pro, I see no reason not to include this as it could be an option. Never Give Up I wasn't going to be beaten that easily. I figured it was time to use the ol' process of elimination to figure out the cause of my problem, so I connected my laptop to my mobile phone via WIFI hotspot and with AirVPN connected I found there was not a single drop in a full 24 hours of web browsing. (Of course this ended up costing me a fortune but we live and learn). So then, my issue had to lie with Virgin Media. Perhaps then my Superhub was the cause. But if it was, where would I start? I figured is this was going to be any kind of software issue the firewall would be the place to look. Well by Jove I think I found it. Superhub more like SuperDUD As I type this I am now happily browsing the web at full speed, uninterrupted, and happy. SSL 80, no connection drop and I'm confident. The issue seemed to be with the PPTP and Multicast pass through. A little internet search and what should pop up as the top link: https://support.cultrix.co.uk/hc/en-gb/articles/202644875-VPN-Does-Not-Connect-When-Using-Virgin-Media-SuperHub A page regarding the issues this VM hub causes VPN services when these two options are not clicked. METHOD: Log into your Virgin Media Hub. For most of you this will be via the web browser and in the address bar you type If this should not work refer to your particular hubs manual for the correct method, or using the sticker on the bottom of the router. Once in, you should see this screen: From here you want to type in the password to access the routers settings. I have changed mine so its no longer default, however, if you have never done this the password should be on the sticker on the router, but refer to the user manual to be sure. Next go ahead and click sign in and you will see this screen: From here we want to enter into the advanced settings option located at the bottom right of the screen. It may pop up a little warning but I assure you we are not doing anything that will break the router. On the following screen scroll down until you see the "Security" options: You are going to want to click on "Firewall". Lastly, on this next screen you should see the option for PPTP and Multicast Pass through as seen bellow. Go ahead and click both so that there is a tick in each box and then save the settings. If for some reason yours is already active, and you are facing the same issues as I am I am afraid I am at a loss as to what your issue could be. As I say, this is really just my own findings and this is as far as I got. The light at the end of the fibre Hopefully you should now be in the same boat as me, you should have a lovely consistent connection, with no loss of bandwidth and with the help of your lovely AirVPN service 100% anonymity. If for any reason these methods do not help feel free to post, perhaps this could be the central place for other VM subscribers and those using AirVPN. The small print Of course with any fixes like this they all come with inherent risks. I am merely showing you what I did and how, but please, do this at your own risk. I have had no issues doing this but I am not responsible for anything that goes wrong for you. Another note: Virgin Media from time to time release firmware updates and these can (and have) reset settings on Hubs. If you find that one day you begin to see the same dreaded drops and throttling, check the hub settings again in case they have reset them. I have seen many posts suggesting that turning the Superhub into modem mode and purchasing a router capable of the SSL 80 protocol in the routers settings is also an option. I have an old DD-WRT but its a little too old for the latest firmware and as such can not use the SSL protocol. This I think is a better option as it ensures anyone on your network is behind the VPN. But I am just finding the less expensive solution, not to mention there are far too many routers out there to determine which one can do SSL. Anyway, I hope this can be of some help to people with VM. Or if you have similar issues, maybe your router has these options, give it a go. Have a good day everyone.

  12. Hi, Totally new to doing VPN over TOR. I'm just seeing what its like to set up. I'm using an iMac 27" macOS 10.13.3 & Eddie 2.12.4. I have Tor Browser installed and running fine, its connected to TOR. I followed the instructions on this page: https://airvpn.org/tor/ - In Preferences for Eddie Proxy/Tor>Type>Tor I clicked the test and Eddie indicates there is connectivity to Tor. Am I actually running the VPN through TOR as it is? See images. The Test indicates there is connectivity. But how do I know the VPN traffic is running through TOR? ipleak.net doesn't indicate any tor exit node. Any help or suggestion will be appreciated. Cheers.
  13. I just noticed that I can no longer access the airvpn website from Sky UK broadband connection. Also, AirVPN Windows application can no longer login over a Sky UK broadband connection. I'm not sure if this legal for an ISP to do.
  14. I installed openSUSE Leap 42.3 64bit on vmware and tried to install airvpn linux 64bit client (also tried 32bit version). the packet manager (YaST2) installed the everything successfully but while installing airvpn package, it gives an error "Package airvpn is broken, integrity check has failed.". I redownloaded and retried to install the package a couple of times but it didnt work. The OS is completely updated. Vmware system: intel i53230m 2 core 4gb ram. laptop: Lenovo z500 2013 I downloaded again at least 10 times and retried to install. This is the last error details: Error: INVALID:airvpn-2.13.6-0.x86_64 (file-baac50db): Signature verification failed [4-Signatures public key is not available] Header V4 RSA/SHA1 Signature, key ID 400d7698: NOKEY Header SHA1 digest: OK (90ce2c917b580766d56fea0af16e59db6eb982bc) V4 RSA/SHA1 Signature, key ID 400d7698: NOKEY MD5 digest: OK (0de918f61441971d0ba6f8b7da2556c4 Also when I ignore the error and install the package, airvpn isnt shown and i cannot use it. portable client works but I wanna install. Is there any way to install or solve the problem in openSUSE?
  15. I upgraded to 2.13.6 and since then I noticed the Tor entry node remains constant regardless of what I try. Shouldn't the Tor circuit "This browser" to first Tor node change whenever I request a new Tor circuit? Does this mean Tor browser does not go through AirVPN first? How can I fix this?
  16. Hello, now i get my new connection and with it i get ipv6 only. There is a ds-lite tunnel for ipv4 things but it won't work with the AirVPN client. I always get the following: The machine runs with Xubuntu 16.10 64bit. You will find my logfile in the Attachment. I can't use AirVPN now. :-( What can i do? Cheers AirVPN_20161202_090120.txt
  17. Good Evening, I had a couple of questions about setting up a VPN with VirtualBox. I believe I have it setup properly, but thought Id ask just to be sure. (Hope this is the right place to ask...) Linux Disto: Ubuntu 16.04.3 64bit VirtualBox: 5.2.2 r119230 So, to start, I setup the VM with 4GB RAM, and 150GB of storage, and keep the network adapter attachment set to NAT(Not sure if it should be left like this). I install ubuntu as usual, and once completed, I begin by disabling IPv6 using the commands: sudo nano /etc/sysctl.conf I then add the three lines: net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1 net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6 = 1 net.ipv6.conf.lo.disable_ipv6 = 1 I then reboot and run the following command: cat /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/all/disable_ipv6 which replies with '1'. Success...I think. I reboot again to be sure and still see it dispayed as '1'. I download from the AIRVPN website the Linux-Debian/Ubuntu Eddie Client. I install Eddie using: sudo apt install "File Location" Successfully installs. I then notice it has 2 commands listed below in the download: wget -qO - https://eddie.website/repository/keys/eddie_maintainer_gpg.key|sudo apt-key add - This commands replies with a single line stating "OK" The next command doesnt work Deb is not a valid command: deb http://eddie.website/repository/apt stable main No biggy...probably. Afterwards, I do a quick "My IP" seach and see that both the host and guest public IPs are the same. I disable webRTC in Firefox, turn off tracking and history and rebooted the VM again. I check to make sure IPv^6 is disable in the Eddie Preferences, turn on network lock, login, and select my favorite AirVPN server. Once connect, I check with IPleak.net, and see that it connect properly. No leaks (as far as I can tell). I check my connection on my host, and it appears as normal(not connected to the VPN). With all this, I assume my VPN + VM setup is complete. The fact that my Public IP was the same kinda worries me, but it changed in the Guest OS after connecting to the VPN, so I assume it is setup properly. If anyone can confirm if this setup is valid, that would be fantastic. Thanks, That One Guy
  18. Hi everyone, I would like to have my digital ocean VM use a VPN for its outgoing http requests. I am using openVPN on Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS (GNU/Linux 3.5.0-48-generic x86_64). Got the files AirVPN_Europe_TCP-53.ovpn ca.crt ta.key user.crt user.key in one directory. VPN is using TCP protocol on port 53. Also tried with UDP, same problem also copied the files to /etc/openvpn/ to try to run it via openvpn start. If I do that, I get the output: root@tr:/home# sudo service openvpn start * Starting virtual private network daemon(s)... ..but nothing happens. curl http://www.ipchicken.com still reveals the servers ip If I directly run root@tr:/etc/openvpn# sudo openvpn AirVPN_Europe_TCP-53.ovpn Thu Sep 18 09:42:35 2014 OpenVPN 2.3.2 i686-pc-linux-gnu [sSL (OpenSSL)] [LZO] [EPOLL] [PKCS11] [eurephia] [MH] [iPv6] built on Feb 4 2014 Thu Sep 18 09:42:35 2014 Control Channel Authentication: using 'ta.key' as a OpenVPN static key file Thu Sep 18 09:42:35 2014 Outgoing Control Channel Authentication: Using 160 bit message hash 'SHA1' for HMAC authentication Thu Sep 18 09:42:35 2014 Incoming Control Channel Authentication: Using 160 bit message hash 'SHA1' for HMAC authentication Thu Sep 18 09:42:35 2014 Socket Buffers: R=[87380->131072] S=[87380->131072] Thu Sep 18 09:42:35 2014 Attempting to establish TCP connection with [AF_INET] [nonblock] Thu Sep 18 09:42:36 2014 TCP connection established with [AF_INET] Thu Sep 18 09:42:36 2014 TCPv4_CLIENT link local: [undef] Thu Sep 18 09:42:36 2014 TCPv4_CLIENT link remote: [AF_INET] Thu Sep 18 09:42:36 2014 TLS: Initial packet from [AF_INET], sid=d5ee74c0 46f1dcfd Thu Sep 18 09:42:36 2014 VERIFY OK: depth=1, C=IT, ST=IT, L=Perugia, O=airvpn.org, CN=airvpn.org CA, emailAddress=info@airvpn.org Thu Sep 18 09:42:36 2014 Validating certificate key usage Thu Sep 18 09:42:36 2014 ++ Certificate has key usage 00a0, expects 00a0 Thu Sep 18 09:42:36 2014 VERIFY KU OK Thu Sep 18 09:42:36 2014 Validating certificate extended key usage Thu Sep 18 09:42:36 2014 ++ Certificate has EKU (str) TLS Web Server Authentication, expects TLS Web Server Authentication Thu Sep 18 09:42:36 2014 VERIFY EKU OK Thu Sep 18 09:42:36 2014 VERIFY OK: depth=0, C=IT, ST=IT, L=Perugia, O=airvpn.org, CN=server, emailAddress=info@airvpn.org Thu Sep 18 09:42:37 2014 Data Channel Encrypt: Cipher 'AES-256-CBC' initialized with 256 bit key Thu Sep 18 09:42:37 2014 Data Channel Encrypt: Using 160 bit message hash 'SHA1' for HMAC authentication Thu Sep 18 09:42:37 2014 Data Channel Decrypt: Cipher 'AES-256-CBC' initialized with 256 bit key Thu Sep 18 09:42:37 2014 Data Channel Decrypt: Using 160 bit message hash 'SHA1' for HMAC authentication Thu Sep 18 09:42:37 2014 Control Channel: TLSv1, cipher TLSv1/SSLv3 DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA, 4096 bit RSA Thu Sep 18 09:42:37 2014 [server] Peer Connection Initiated with [AF_INET] Thu Sep 18 09:42:39 2014 SENT CONTROL [server]: 'PUSH_REQUEST' (status=1) Thu Sep 18 09:42:40 2014 PUSH: Received control message: 'PUSH_REPLY,redirect-gateway def1,dhcp-option DNS,comp-lzo no,route,topology net30,ping 10,ping-restart 60,ifconfig' Thu Sep 18 09:42:40 2014 OPTIONS IMPORT: timers and/or timeouts modified Thu Sep 18 09:42:40 2014 OPTIONS IMPORT: LZO parms modified Thu Sep 18 09:42:40 2014 OPTIONS IMPORT: --ifconfig/up options modified Thu Sep 18 09:42:40 2014 OPTIONS IMPORT: route options modified Thu Sep 18 09:42:40 2014 OPTIONS IMPORT: --ip-win32 and/or --dhcp-option options modified Thu Sep 18 09:42:40 2014 ROUTE_GATEWAY IFACE=eth0 HWADDR=04:01:28:70:e1:01 Thu Sep 18 09:42:40 2014 TUN/TAP device tun0 opened Thu Sep 18 09:42:40 2014 TUN/TAP TX queue length set to 100 Thu Sep 18 09:42:40 2014 do_ifconfig, tt->ipv6=0, tt->did_ifconfig_ipv6_setup=0 Thu Sep 18 09:42:40 2014 /sbin/ip link set dev tun0 up mtu 1500 Thu Sep 18 09:42:40 2014 /sbin/ip addr add dev tun0 local peer Thu Sep 18 09:42:40 2014 /sbin/ip route add via Thu Sep 18 09:42:40 2014 /sbin/ip route add via Thu Sep 18 09:42:40 2014 /sbin/ip route add via Write failed: Broken pipe After that the VM is just completely down / frozen and I need to restart it.

  19. Your eddie portable version of the client which is written in C# make enormous not needed usage of CPU on my ArchLinux. It continually uses around 50% of the CPU which from some reason make load on my machine goes over the 120 load after few minutes. My machine is two core four threads and it uses two cores fully all the time which is insane. I used simply openvpn with generated certs from the website and had minimal under 1% usage. Why does the eddie have that much use of cpu resources. Also one bad thing why there is no possibility to minimize your client. That is a bit irritating. Btw I have disabled checking for servers first I have selected checking for servers every minute then I thought maybe badly written code have problem with checking of the servers. Its not that. I dont write C# I write C and C++ I can write C# I just don't want to. And I expected at least a decent client. Btw I'm using your portable version I might try with AUR version. version is 2.13.6 which is the latest version.
  20. I use Eddie on a Windows 10 x64 laptop, and had very few issues, and I solved all of them through very simple settings within Eddie after reading here. Recently I went to stay with a friend for a few weeks, I had been there before and haven't experienced any AirVPN-related issue associated with these visits. This time around, when I got back home again, I simply couldn't connect to the internet. All my other devices could connect to the internet (both cable and wireless), one of them (Xbox One) did suffer pretty badly from dc's if connected through wifi, but the phone and the Smart TV had good and stable wireless connection throughout the whole ordeal (and the Xbox worked flawless if connected through cable). The laptop, however, couldn't connect at all, cable or wireless didn't matter. I uninstalled Eddie, problem remained. Before this I had of course rebooted all hardware and powercycled everything in the entire network several times, I updated (or checked for updates) everything I could - hardware, software, firmware. Double and tripple checked all DNS- and IP-related settings, flushed, released and reset pretty much everything I could. On the third day I found a working combo.. change and give the laptop a static IP, uninstall VMWare Workstation, use OpenVPN instead of Eddie. If I try to use Eddie, then I can't connect to internet at all. If I re-install VMWare Workstation, same thing. If either of these are installed, I can't connect to internet even with Eddie not even running. And even with my working current config (static IP, no VMWare Workstation or Eddie installed, only OpenVPN, internet dies if I change back to DHCP / assign automatic IP. As long as it's on static, however, everything works just like it used to do with Eddie and VMWare - can connect with and without VPN, can use virtual machines and virtual network adapters (but with VirtualBox and so on instead of VMWare), nothing changes if I temporary use it on another WiFi and then get back home to my own network (cable or wireless doesn't make any difference). Anyone know what could be the issue here? I can connect now, and I guess OpenVPN serves me well although I have to learn a new application to modify the config file to be as safe as the setup I had in Eddie, but it's weird and I'd rather use the software I actually want to use. Especially when it comes to VMWare Workstation (it also worked fine with AirVPN before my trip / switching wifi temporary). I know, I should've saved logs, and I understand that I might not be able to recieve a very specific awnser here. But it's so weird and I have a feeling that I really must have missed something very, very basic..?
  21. I am using AirVPN (Version 2.12.14 Linux 64) installed on Ubuntu 17.04 (64 Bit). In the AirVPN General Preferences menu, I have "Connect at startup" ticked, and "Activate Network Lock at startup" ticked. When the system is started no AirVPN processes are started, and none are started automatically at login. Can someone please explain what I am doing wrong ? Many thanks, RoyG
  22. Hi all, I'm hoping for an answer on this, i'll show you the setup first then the question. Here's the setup: Linux server running web server and using AirVPN(Eddie) port forwarding a HTTP port 80 web page with chat function----(no HTTPS) I I I Connected to Internet I I Serving the webpage using AirVPN Exit IP and Forwarded Port I I Windows 10 client connecting to AirVPN Exit IP and Port via web browser and then using the web chat service in http not in https. The Windows 10 client is not running a VPN or any special software. The Question: Is the connection between the client and the AirVPN exit node encrypted even though the client doesnt have VPN software installed? I know that that might sound silly but I would have thought the answer would have been no, so to check this I MITM my WiFi connection but could only see QUIC, TCP, UDP and HTTP coming from the client in Wireshark. The QUIC UDP were encrypted payloads and I searched the HTTP packets data for the plain text messages I was sending in the chat page but couldn't find it, in fact none of the packets were readable other than the source and destination parts. So to recap: Is the clients connection to the AirVPN Exit nodes IP and PORT encrypted? and if so how when im not running a vpn? is it the session to the airvpn exit node? can the data be read in plain text the same way it would on a normal LAN if i was doing packet capture on the HTTP? Please discuss
  23. Hello, I am having trouble setting up a Minecraft game server using AirVPN. I have used AirVPN's port forwarding service and successfully forwarded and opened up a port of my choice and selected the games local port of 25565. I checked this using canyouseeme.org to test this was the case, it was up. I booted up the server and found that i couldn't connected via the port / public exit IP and it just lead to a weird timing out on the ping and leading to a lack of connection for the server. I knew the server was up as i had a local connection to it which showed it was up. I wondered if there was an issue with packets getting lost / dropped so I did a tracert to see if i could see where the connection was going and that worked fine with no issues at all. Then I checked to see if there was anything going on with AIrVPN or maybe my internet provider was being overly strict so i changed to SSL applies caps or blocks lower ip ranges etc. Same result no connection, I tried multiple ways of setting it up and always got the same result of it timing out. Maybe it was my software so I disabled all firewalls / everything and tried it across multiple machines with fresh hardware and on different operating systems. Same issue nothing was working. Tried multiple ways and getting the local connection via ipconfig on my adapter and binding the IP to the minecraft server interface. Still nothing, tried changing the ports of the server interface still nothing. I gave dynamic DNS a go to see if i could circumvent this issue completely with it and still not working. I am really at a loss and have no clue how to fix this any help would be appreciated. Thanks for reading. Additional Details: - All internet works fine with/without airVpn. - Yes i am connected to a airvpn server and have tried multiple of their servers. - Yes I have restarted / shutdown pc's after installing to give it a "chance" - Yes the port is up and i can see its up via canyouseeme.org - Yes i gave time for the dynamic dns to change and update its entries. - I have tried three different operating systems including Linux. Windows server and desktop. - Connecting via Ethernet cable. - No problems connecting to airvpn servers. - College/University wifi.
  24. I have Eddie installed on a server running Lubuntu 17.10 (and prior to that Lubuntu 17.04). I have Eddie configured to utilise AirVPN Servers located in the USA. I'm very happy with the performance of AirVPN - excellent speed, and great reliability. However - I have one issue that is causing problems. When I run apt-get (or apt), I get timeouts on all of the Ubuntu Repo Servers. I have manually selected Ubuntu Repo Servers located in the USA, in the same city as the AirVPN Server in use when possible, and still encounter these timeouts. I have tried using the Ubuntu utility to identify the fastest Ubuntu Repo Server, and that Utility gives strange results when run via AirVPN. When run through AirVPN, the utility seems to get confused and reports Ubuntu Repo Servers in the strangest places (i.e. Iceland, Peru, Columbia, Bangladesh, etc ...) as being the fastest servers - but these recommended servers also timeout when you run apt update. When this Ubuntu utility is run with Eddie shutdown, the utility correctly identifies the fastest Ubuntu Repo Server as being one in my country, hosted by the ISP that I use .... so the utility is working correctly, provided it is not used via AirVPN. If I completely exit from Eddie, apt-get and apt all work very fast, at roughly the same speed as my other Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Debian and Armbian systems. An inquiry to Ubuntu Technical Support regarding this problem resulted in their answering that "it must be a problem with the VPN software". A classic case of buck-passing ! My workaround at the moment is to disable Eddie whenever I need to run apt or apt-get - not really a satisfactory permanent solution. So - has anyone got any ideas what might be causing this problem, or how to fix it ? Thanks RoyG
