  1. Hi, I'm trying to use a NetGear R6300v1 as a VPN Router with the latest DD-WRT build I could find (dd-wrt.v24-36330_NEWD-2_K3.x_mega-R6300). I can establish a TCP/443 connection to AirVPN (using DE or NL servers) and everything is fine in my opinion: There seem to be no DNS leaks and when the VPN goes down the R6300v1 stops traffic over the WAN interface, just as I want it to. With my 100/40 MBit/s NetCologne DSL @ home I see about 15/13 MBit/s VPN Performance on the R6300v1 with TCP, I have not yet seen more than 30% CPU usage on the R6300v1 during Speedtests. Streaming 1080p YouTube videos in a browser window on a PC connected via LAN to the R6300v1 the CPU usage stays below 15%. Streaming 4K video to an iPad connected via 5 GHz WLAN results in 25% to 35% CPU usage on the R6300v1. This is using a TCP connection - I wonder if UDP would give me more performance and if I should strive further to get that up and running? My problem is: With the very same settings - AFAIK I don't have anything TCP exclusive in there - just switching to UDP for connecting to AirVPN I cannot browse anything anymore. DNS resolution still works with UDP, I can ping for example www.heise.de both in Windows and via SSH directly on the R6300v1, I just cannot browse to www.heise.de. On a sidenote, the same is true if I use 'OpenVPN connect' on an iPad (iOS 11.4.1) - when I generate a .ovpn config for TCP/443 to German servers all is well, same config just with UDP/443 not so much on the iPad, too. On a second sidenote, I can get the latest Tomato build I could find for the R6300v1 (tomato-Netgear-R6300V1_RT-AC6x--140-AIO-64K) to do the same and have the same UDP issue as with the DD-WRT load ... I settled for DD-WRT for now because it seems to me the hardware support, especially WLAN AC, is better in the more recent DD-WRT build I'm using. I think I'm either missing something obvious or UDP simply cannot work on the R6300v1 (and an iPad). If anybody has an idea what I should try differently with the settings, I'd very much appreciate the information. Thanks in advance, Kyle
  2. HI, It's been brought to my attention that Steam and Microsoft charge different prices depending on your geographic region. Thus it's possible to use a VPN to trick Steam, for example, into thinking you live in a region where prices are lower. However, in the Steam terms, you do agree not to use a VPN for this purpose. And your account could be permanently closed if you get caught. Question: What is the likelihood of getting caught? Specifically with respect to AirVPN.
  3. Hello I have a very strange problem with my Windows 10 laptop. I try to make a VPN chain. My host OS is a freshly and clean installed Windows 10 Professional without any third party antivirus or firewall installed. I set up an Ubuntu virtual machine in vmware workstation player with NAT network setting. I can successfully connect to the first VPN server on my host OS and start up the virtual machine. When I go to ipleak.net (in the Ubuntu guest OS) i can see the ip address from the first VPN server, so far so good. But when I try to fire up the eddie client in the Ubuntu guest OS and make the second VPN connection it's always stuck on checking route and it fails to connect. After that, I tried to disable the VPN connection on my host OS. I can now make a VPN connection inside the Ubuntu guest OS without any errors. So, a VPN connection is possible on the host and guest OS, but chaining doesn't work. I tried exactly the same on my friends Windows 10 host machine and it worked right away. Why it doesn't on my Windows 10 Laptop?

  6. I'm attempting to host a Minecraft server on campus using the provided internet (we aren't allowed to purchase our own) and would like my friends outside campus to be able to connect but they cannot. I've tried to do port forwarding to allow this but it doesn't seem to be working no matter what I try. I can only connect to the server myself when running it locally (connecting to and not when running it through the vpn. Any suggestions?
  7. Hello, I really didn't want to write this post, especially after reading the "Config Generator not resolving hosts for Entry IP 2" post and the https://airvpn.org/topic/14378-how-can-i-get-vpn-servers-entry-ip-addresses post over and over again. I read these posts a million times each but still couldn't figure out how to get my entry IP address and I kind of guessed for the DNS. The only command line prompt I could even get a response for was: nslookup nihal.airservers.org. I tried so many variations of nslookup nl.all.vpn.airdns.org (for example, uslookup pavo.airservers.org) and couldn't get the earth one to work either: earth.all.vpn.airdns.org I went to the specs page of the airvpn website looking for the VPN DNS and kind of just guessed with Here we go: Operating System: RouterOpenVPN version: >= 2.4 IPv4 only Servers: by Continent Protocol: TCP Port: 1194 I chose TCP 1194 because the router I'm flashing has Tor capability and I'm shooting for true anonymity. Everything is just about set up and ready to go but despite reading the entry-ip-addresses article over and over again I couldn't seem to ascertain how exactly to get it. Thoughts anyone?

  9. Hi there, I am totally new to vpn and I just curious about how that all works and how to do it right, and now I am quite confused about thousand different setup methods. I have a plain linux box which runs a service Y on a specific port that shall go throught airvpn. So far I only read that once openvpn is started all traffic goes through the vpn. If I simply start the vpn as descibed here https://airvpn.org/topic/11431-using-airvpn-with-linux-from-terminal/ on the box does this mean that everyone on the other side of the vpn can portscan/connect to services that are running on that box? If I manage that box from another client in my LAN via a vncserver that is installed on that box, can I still reach the box after starting openvpn and can anyone on the other vpn side connect to the vncserver? So my question is what is the easyest way to route only service Y to the vpn and make incomming (from the vpn) request route only to service Y's port?
  10. I've been noticing this lately in wireshark. I'm using OpenVPN 2.4.5. Its sending and receiving to the VPN server, however Wireshark shows it is using IPv4, and not the OpenVPN protocol. Is this something to be concerned about, and if so, how can I fix this issue while using OpenVPN?
  11. Hi, I have an issue with my home network. I have an ASUS RT-AC87U router. I use Expressvpn on the router with polcy routing. My Mac is connected straight to the WAN but I use AirVPN'd client Eddie. I have had no issues with either Expressvpn or AirVPN. Last night I spent serveral hours on my universities website doing work. At the end of the night I decided to just check everything was running ok with the VPN connections. I found no matter what I did (clear caches, delete cookies, check my dns settings, renew the lease etc) this problem persists. My iPhone uses the Expressvpn (openvpn in the router) and my mac uses the AirVPN client eddie. When I run the ipleak.net test I receive 100 DNS errors. I have not changed any settings in the router whatsoever. I've changed nothing. See the screenshots ... (Sweden is AirVPN, US is Expressvpn) Obviously the error is being caused within my router, which I have restarted and checked for a ASUS-WRT Merlin update).

  13. 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.

  15. I've managed to get a pfSense VM working with AirVPN's Serpentis server via Stunnel.

  16. Hi, I wrote a short review about different VPN services and how they are working on DD-WRT routers. AirVPN is also included as a part of the test. Was just testing against Swedish servers, since I'm located in Sweden want the fastest speed and lowest ping, even when using a VPN. Hope AirVPN is soon replacing all Kustband servers in Sweden, with only Altushost as ISP or similar providers
  17. 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
  18. Problem: I have devices on different subnets ( 192.168.15.x, 192.168.35.x ) and would like for them to be able to discover each other. Specifically I want them so see each others minecraft (bedrock/pocket) worlds. the 15.x network is the "privileged" home network, where as the 35.x network is intended as guest-wifi network with no internet access ( also vpn clients would be given a IP here ) currently they cannot see each other - if I add a route with 192.168.15.x to the vpn config then vpn clients can access webservers in this subnet but minecraft clients still can't see each other. My router is a N66 running tomatoUSB and both subnets are entirely controlled by it. Question: Is this even possible? If so - how? Any help would be appreciated I currently do not know enough to even successfully google for marginally useful information
  19. It would be helpful if current or past users of these services can share their views. Any other advise is also appreciated. Thanks in advance. [Current and satisfied AirVPN user]
  20. The findings I always has an 100Mbit/s connection from my ISP. This always worked well with AirVPN I got about 92Mbit/s with this VPN. Some days ago I got a 200Mbit/s connection from my ISP and the VPN speeds dropped to about 60Mbit/s and sometimes lower. I tried several VPN and also different protocols. Even stunnel didn't fixed the problem. The solution I often read about changing the MTU size or the mssfix value to 1300. This did not the Job for me. My solution was the TCP Optimizer. This tool can just be executed and must not be installed. It should be run in Administrator Mode. (Right click on the exe file -> run as administrator) Step 1 adjust your connection speed Step 2 select your network adapter Step 3 Click on MTU/Latency Step 4 Click on largest MTU [do this once when you are connected to the VPN and once outside the VPN] In VPN I got a result of maximum MTU 1300 and outside I had 1500. Please share your results and your connection speed. Step 5 Back to general settings At the bottom choose "custom" set MTU to the calculated value and "apply changes". Even after the changes not all AirVPN servers worked well for me. I will create a list with servers who worked with my options. Please report your results if this helped you.

  21. It would seem that in an effort to shill for the Chinese Government, Mojang has decided to ban all users on VPN's from connecting to the login servers needed to access the game. In doing so, they hope to force all Chinese players to fall back to the Chinese government approved version of Minecraft. All VPN users should now be logged out when connecting and fed the message "Invalid username or password" When emailing Mojang about the issue, they recommend connecting without a VPN to fix the issue, and in one instance in the reddit thread below, a user was informed that their account was outright banned for using a VPN (However it is unknown if this was because of a previous infraction such as bypassing server bans etc.?) And told to use the Chinese version instead. https://www.reddit.com/r/Minecraft/comments/5vwve1/mojang_now_ban_accounts_for_vpn_usage/ Now i personally do not play Minecraft that much at all anymore, but because of this i cannot access my game simply for trying to protect my privacy, and I'm not even from China. I Refuse to remove the VPN connection simply to play a game, and no one else should have to either. Sadly, i already purchased the game a very long time ago, so i cannot boycott them, but i can certainly spread the news of what they are doing, so that other VPN users looking to play the game should know either not to buy it, expect to disconnect if you do, and if you don't you will have to get the game through other means to retain the ability to play when connected to VPN's.
  22. What do you think about them? I need to choose 2 from them.
  23. Hi,kinda new here, any kind of guide to follow to get airvpn work with Mikrotik RB951G-2HnD router? i used L2TP with it before with Torguard,but it seems not to connect with airvpn,i tried to change config and add openvpn instead of L2TP,but it fails to connect. thank you.
  24. Hello! I have been using AirVPN at home like a charm for months now, however when I am on a certain network away from my house I cannot seem to get it to work. When I use all of the non-SSL and SSH protocols, it fails to connect. When I use SSL or SSH I get an error in my logs: "Squid does not support some access protocols. For example, the SSH protocol is currently not supported." How can I fix this so I can use SSL or SSH?
