  1. Hi, I got an issue. When i enable Intel VT-x in my bios, the next time i boot my pc, AirVPN can't resolve the route. It does set the ip address correct on the TAP v9 adapter. in the 10.x.x.x range and it does set the dns correct on that adapter. My TAP v9 adapter doesn't get a default gateway. Normal? On my physical adapter(virtualized Hyper-V adapter) it does set the DNS correct, but my ip address is still the same (192.168.0.x). Is this normal? AirVPN does a correct dns flush on the adapters. then it goes on checking the route. and fails. theres a screenshot attached. I also dissabled IPv6 on all adapters. Do u need more info? I'll be happy to give. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks
  2. My phone is connected to AirVPN via OpenVPN for Android. Most websites are fooled by the VPN, but when I ask google directly (OK Google), it shows my actual IP address. I do not have this issue on my PC. What can I do about this? Thanks in advance.
  3. Certainly an off-topic question. But i have to ask myself how and why did services like AirVPN come to be? Most of the providers i have been able to gather some information on AirVPN included started at or around 2010-2013. Obviously the latter correlates to the Snowden leaks; Clearly however this was a concern before the Snowden leaks but why? For privacy and torrenting reasons, why were VPN providers non-existant from the 1990's to 2010? ( The beginning of the modern web to their first appearance) From 1990-2010 there was obviously government surveillance and piracy occurring, so why were VPN's overlooked as a corporate utility for remote employees until 2010? What changed? After 2010 and the Snowden revelations in 2013 VPN's and VPN providers sprung up seemingly out of nowhere. Removing the Snowden leaks from consideration, why were VPN's first used to protect the privacy and security of citizens in the first place when the technology was designed for a completely different reason?
  4. Hey All, I use PfSense with AirVPN and its set up to use AirVPN DNS ( IIRC) to prevent DNS leakage, however the "client" in Pfsense is configured to use europe.vpn.airdns.org which cannot resolve until the AirVPN is up. I've found out what europe.vpn.airdns.org CURRENTLY resolves to and used the IP instead to work around this, but i assume this changes frequently to manage load (correct?). So am i ok to just leave this as it is or should i be doing something else? Finally, download speed across the VPN are about 2-3Mbps when i have a 20Mbps connection - seems a little slow - anything i can check here?
  5. Is anyone able to get good speeds on Alcor? The most i was able to get was 4-5 mbits/second. Other servers nearby in Latvia and Lithuania can get 20-40 mbits per second.
  6. Just curious why Netherlands is the most used country aside from having the most servers. I always thought Sweden and Switzerland had better laws regarding privacy and filesharing. Could someone inform me of Netherlands benefits over other locations in Europe aside from having central peering? I mean, is there a non technical reason for it or is the peering the only thing that makes it preferable to other countries in Europe?
  7. I want to run the VPN on my host machine while using a virtual machine (VM) Oracle VM Virtualbox to run my every day browsers and sites. I have tried my best today for several hours but I have had an extremely hard time setting it up. Some sites do not work properly. I am assuming this is a networking issue somewhere (host computer, VM settings, or router, or the VPN?). What needs to be done to get all the systems to work together? Symptoms are getting "localhost" white crash pages, sites not loading properly on the VM. I have tried also installing airvpn on the VM, but it does not connect (connection reset by peer or "Cannot login (An exception occurred during a WebClient request). Help is greatly appreciated!
  8. I was connected to one of the VPN servers in sweden, and tried to check my bank account.... I got a malware warning (attached). ​Switched VPN server, and it went away. Not sure which server I was connected to, but it was in Sweden. Just a heads up!
  9. I found this info here https://www.reddit.com/r/VPN/comments/4j3cna/purevpn_disconnect_your_vpn_or_enter_phone_number/ and somewhere else ( probably there too ) i heard the same with ID pictures. So they actually straight Force their costumers to give out information else they cant use their vpn anymore So you cant buy them anonymous .

    "LEAP is a non-profit dedicated to giving all internet users access to secure communication. Our focus is on adapting encryption technology to make it easy to use and widely available." LEAP develops the Bitmask application. "Bitmask is an open source application to provide easy and secure encrypted communication. You can choose among several different service providers or start your own. Currently, Bitmask supports encrypted internet (VPN) and encrypted email." "Bitmask is built using OpenVPN but with several security enhancements turned on by default. One of the biggest problems with encryption today is how it’s too easy to make mistakes, because of that, we are forcing security with Bitmask. It will prevent common VPN problems like DNS or IPv6 leaks or data going over the clear to the Internet if your connection with the VPN service repeatingly drops." -Riseup LEAP shares the same mission as AirVPN and they need support to develop their software. https://leap.se/en/about-us/donate
  11. I've recently purchased AirVPN and set up the client for usage with two windows devices, however I'm having issues with one of my Linux systems. In the first instance, when trying to install the client via the package installer, I received the message: Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: "libmono-system-runtime2.0-cil" ... Since I couldn't use the installer, I downloaded the mobile client instead. Everything seemed to be running smoothly, except when I ran a check on ipleak.net, I found that my UK details were displayed along with the foreign IP from the VPN. My accurate location was also shown on the Google Maps image at the bottom of the screen. This is not the case with either of my windows devices. In the windows instances, the only addresses and locations shown are those coming from the VPN. Also, the ipleaks check reads: "AirVPN Exit Node: No." With both my windows devices, this section reads: "AirVPN Exit Node: Yes." Forgive me if I sound foolish, but I really am confused as to what the issue could be. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  12. Came across this article today. I think AirVPN runs Tor nodes, right? https://www.whonix.org/blog/combining-tor-vpn-proxy-can-make-less-anonymous "Tor avoids using more than one relay belonging to the same operator in the circuits it is building." ...but Tor isn't aware that my first connection to the internet is over VPN. So if Air is my first hop, and Air is also operating an exit that I connect to; they've become the first and last hop. This could expose Air users to correlation attacks. "It is possible to host Tor relays [any… bridges, entry, middle or exit] behind VPNs or tunnel-links. For example, there are VPN providers that support VPN port forwarding. This is an interesting way to contribute to Tor while not exposing oneself to too much legal risk. Therefore, there can be situations, where a VPN or other tunnel-link and a Tor relays could be hosted by the same operator, in the same network or even on the same IP."
  13. Is AirVPN vulnerable to a MiTM attack by sysadmins looking to throttle their clients? According to http://security.stackexchange.com/questions/53444/vpns-vulnerable-to-mitm-because-any-certificate-goes OpenVPN does not validate that the cert is correct, thus making it possible for ISPs, sysadmins etc, to trick the client to use a fake cert so they may monitor the connections contents. Is AirVPN safe from this?
  14. Correction/Update. Here is what the Staff posted, Showing that there is no real security benefit in using HMAC SHA2 over HMAC SHA1. ****************************** Hello, the following paper is extremely important, because provides mathematical proof that HMAC is a PRF under the sole assumption that the compression function is a PRF. As long as the assumption holds true, as it is until now, after 10 years the paper was written, there is really no reasonable argumentation to grade "security" of HMAC SHA2 over HMAC SHA1. Or even HMAC MD5! https://cseweb.ucsd.edu/~mihir/papers/hmac-new.pdf Kind regards **************************************************************** Is perfect privacy more secure? Here's the control channel authentication they use versus airvpn. And if they're using more secure control channel authentication Will airVPN ever improve theres to match price perfect privacy?

  15. I was thinking about setting up a self hosted VPN for fun to use on my Pi. I was thinking about using the Canada location... I know the France location is considered very safe. It seems they don't care about torrent sites/trackers, regular BitTorrent traffic, etc. but there doesn't seem to be much info on this in their Canada location. Any input is appreciated!
  16. Two different topics in the same post since I can only make a single post a day. Sorry. First, what is the proper way to set the.ovpn configuration file in order to enable VPN through Tor? I have attempted using as the SOCKS proxy but that has not worked. Maybe it has something to do with the control port? Second, I have been able to get Eddie started on CentOS 7, but for some reason, Eddie does not connect to any server. I used all default settings once, and then disabled DNS check.

  17. On Aug 30, exactly a week ago, the Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communication, BEREC, launched their Guidelines on the Implementation by National Regulators of European Net Neutrality Rules. The original document is quite long. Those who decide to read it will come to many conclusions, two of them are these: You as a provider are not allowed to apply advertisement blocking in your network (before the traffic reaches your customers). You as a provider are therefore allowed to implement traffic management based on the category of traffic - wrote this way it's perfectly possible to throttle VPNs or BitTorrent.
  18. ​Hi everyone ​ ​I have installed ESXI 6.0 on my home server and I am trying to access each host console, but when I open ssh tunnel to port 443, 902 and 903 with putty I still don't have control over the host's console. ​ is there any special rules that I have to add on my pfsense firewall to access the console on each host. ​ ​Thank you ​ ​ ​ ​EDIT: ​ ​with ubuntu terminal I get message : Privileged can only be forwarded by root ​I just add SUDO at the front so I can get root then message : Permission denied (publickey). ​Do I have to install ssh key pair for root and add public key to my access server? ​ ​EDIT: ​ ​I just generated a keys for root and logged in as root opened a ssh tunnel as root to ports 443,902 and 903 ​ ​ I can't login I've got this message "[object, Object] " ​Is anyone know how to fix that? ​
  19. Here is a vpn service that takes a very interesting approach to securing there users, please tell me what you think. https://www.deepdotweb.com/2016/07/26/introduction-i2vpn/
  20. wouldn't marketing vpns as anonymous be misleading due to the nature of the Internet and that it is actually impossible to achieve anonymity even with tor
  21. Hello community, just wanted to ask your opinion, when VPN's are blocked on public wifi services (mall, airport, coffee shop etc.) is it done with the malicious intent to enforce the AUP or monitor their users activities for their own self defined reasons (aka i have the right to see your shit so imma snoop through all day because i can). Really, what are your feelings on public VPN blockages in general? Are they hurting privacy minded users by blocking VPNs? etc
  22. Hello, I'm connected to the VPN after not synchronize MS OneNote or wiring Account.
  23. Hello ! ​Some have asked me how they can help out. How To Help AirVPN Succeed​ So here's some ways I propose how: ​Help new people. It's very easy to feel intimidated, due to the high level of technical knowledge displayed. Especially by the l33t Staff account. ​But don't just help them. Make them feel welcome. A very complex solution to this, is to say "Welcome" when they post their first posts. How about posting your review of AirVPN; a nice good solid long review, telling others how AirVPN is so good you want to visit Italy, etc. etc. ​Post your "logs" in spoiler tags, when you need help with something. See my signature for how to do so. Some logs are super long, so it helps. Ask & discuss the features of other VPNs & help make us all smarter. Where did you come from? Where are you going? What is love? etc. ​Make a guide/how-to about something you care about. Heck, even if it's just a nice index of useful programs/software, for instance. Post comments on review sites & tell them why they're wrong! Lol no, just use facts instead;) . Be charming & factual, like Zorro! Video reviews are especially great, as the ones which are highest on the youtube lists I'm seeing, are like your kindergarten pics! ANCIENT! ​Go to your Client Area and use your "Referral" code to invite more friends to the service & profit from it yourself too. Can't let Air get lonely! ​Go to threads like this & see if you can contribute with a new language or spread the word about it. Got any Arabic-speaking friends hmm? ​Answer questions that you're able to answer, in all of the sub-forums. With time, you become more knowledgeable . ​Find projects that you think Air should support.This way, your Air sub helps many more projects! Make sure they are in-line with Airs "mission". Help AirVPN test out new versions of their software. ​Be creative and find positive ways to add to the service; I'll be the first to admit Air doesn't give many tips lol. So don't feel bad. ​​ ​​ How To Make Your Forum Posts More Appealing(Mini Styleguide) Why is presentation important? Because this is a technical forum. So we read a lot. It's easier to get help, solve a problem & share knowledge when things are presented well.​ All codes on this forum, usually at least, follow the same formula: there's a "start" tag and an "end" tag. End tags are showed by a slash: /. ​Remember to close things off correctly, or it can ruin your entire post, if you forget either a [ or a ] character. ​Note: When you want to make an index, you currently have to "Reserve" a spot, by posting blank posts to your own guide, so that you can link to these posts after you finish editing them. This way, you can eventually create an index. Very useful if your guide or post is very long.​ ​ Some useful codes: ​Links can be long, ugly, annoying & broken by linebreaks. So make it easy for everyone by making clickable words. Critical for a stylish guide & helpful posts. You can link directly to individual posts by clicking the # in the top right corner of the post you want to copy. Just click and then copy the link. [url=https://airvpn.org/]This can be clicked[/url] ​[url=https://airvpn.org/topic/18339-guide-to-getting-started-links-for-advanced-users/?p=43734]This links to my other guide[/url] ​Result: This can be clicked ​This links to my other guide ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​Style headings in your posts, for much-better-looking management of paragraphs. It doesn't go past h3. [h1=This Is The Biggest Heading][/h1] [h2=This Is The Second Biggest Heading][/h2] [h3=This Is The Third Biggest Heading][/h3] ​Result: ​ This Is The Biggest Heading This Is The Second Biggest Heading This Is The Third Biggest Heading​ ​ ​ ​These tags are the most flashy available on the forums and are naturally excellent at bringing attention to the most important things. ​[info]Did you know Eddie likes to read logs?[/info] ​[warning]Warning! If You mention Netflix One more time...[/warning] ​[error]Error! AirVPN can no longer handle "ICANN"s nonsense[/error] ​Result: ​ ​ Did you know Eddie likes to read logs?​ Warning! If You mention Netflix One more time...​ Error! AirVPN can no longer handle "ICANN"s nonsense​ ​​ ​ Spoiler Alert! This is the most holy of the holy tags in existence. The mighty spoiler tag! Used to not spoil your viewers mood both during guides & when you post a 3 page logfile. ​ ​[spoiler]This has been spoiled[/spoiler] Result: ​ ​ This has been spoiled. Omg spoilerception!​​ ​ ​ ​The rightbox is useful for adding information which perhaps isn't critical or which is perhaps especially interesting, info-box style. [rightbox]This box is right. You're not. [/rightbox] ​Result: ​ ​ This box is right. You're not. ​ ​ ​​ ​The hr, horizontal-rule, is a special tag which isn't closed. It's good for breaking things up, as I've been doing. It's also especially boring. [hr] Result: ​ ​ ​​ ​ ​Other Formatting & Posting Tips: ​Use lists like this one. Either bulleted or not. You click the button in the interface, under the "Font" and "Size" buttons. To the left of the smiley.​Right above the place you "Attach Files", you can click on "View Auto Saved Content", in case you need to reload something you lost.​In the top right corner, you can check a box that lets you Follow your own topic. But you can also make a poll.​Under the smiley in the interface, you can click the <> sign. Then in the biggest box, you can write code, so that others can see it while its inactive, like in this guide.​On the same line as the Smiley, in the inteface, there's a button next to "Font" on the left, called "Special BBcode", that you can refer to, for more codes.​If a piece of text is a part of a link, you can unlink it and make it normal text again, by clicking the "unlink" button, to the left of the <> code button, in the interface.​ ​ ​ I'll give a medal or something to the first person who can make the Staff account "lol" publicly. Quantum computing is possible, so this must be too! ​Do you have any other ideas? If so, please feel free to post them :]. ​ ​Questions are always welcome. Don't be afraid of asking! *^__^* ​ ​Thank you!
  24. VIRTUAL MACHINES AND VPN This is a quick short guide to anyone wanting to use VPN over a virtual machine, and also how to use TOR and VPN in a virtual machine. REQUIREMENTS 1. Virtualization software such as: Oracle VM Virtualbox (Free) https://www.virtualbox.org/ VM Ware Workstation (Proffesional Software) http://www.vmware.com/uk/products/workstation.html Windows Virtual PC (Freeware but can only install systems for Windows XP and up) https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=3702 These are the three most popular options for virtualization software. I personally recommend using Virtualbox if you don't want to pay a lot of money for VM Ware, although it is packed with features and is probably the most advanced virtualization software on the market, hence why it is used by professionals and large companies. 2. An ISO image of the operating system you'd like to use. If you want general purpose virtualization, such as testing applications, I recommend Windows. If you want to use TOR, refer to the TOR section down below. 3. A decent computer. What you will be basically doing is running a computer inside your computer. Yeah I know, Inception, right? Anyway, you should have a decent computer for this, and I recommend minimum of 8gb of RAM. You should also have a decent CPU as it will also affect the performance of the virtual machine. 4. A VPN. If you are on this forum you should be using Air, but this should work with any properly configured VPN. CONFIGURATION I won't go through the set up and installation of a operating system in a virtual machine in this guide because there are plenty of resources out there that explain how to do this. Make sure you are connected to your VPN on your host machine (The computer you are running the virtual machine on). Once you have your virtual machine configured, be it Linux or Windows or any operating system, the essential thing you need to do is switch your virtual machines network adapter to use NAT. It is absolutely essential that you do this, otherwise your true IP address will be used by the virtual machine. Bridged modes simply use your network adapter hardware directly, which reveals your real IP. The NAT (Network Address Translation) mode uses your host operating system's IP address, and if your VPN is configured properly it will mean the virtual machine is using the exact same VPN connection your computer is using. USING TOR IN A VIRTUAL MACHINE If you want to use TOR in a virtual machine, you have two options. You can either use the TOR Browser like in a regular computer, running it on Windows or Linux, whatever your choice may be. I personally recommend using Tails, an operating system designed for anonymity and usage of TOR. TAILS Tails is a live operating system designed for anonymity and privacy, and is released under the GNU/GPL license. All of the source code of the applications that tails uses that are not taken directly from upstream Debian packages are available on their git repositories, they have a guide here: https://tails.boum.org/contribute/git/ The great thing about tails is that it is crammed with programs and features for anonymity, security and privacy. It has email clients, tools for public keys and GPG, disguising the operating system as Windows 8 if you want to use it in public places, instant messaging clients, and many, many more. So now that you know what Tails is, you probably can't wait to get it. The best part is that it is a live operating system, and you don't need to install it. Tails homepage: https://tails.boum.org/ They also made a great installation guide if you want to install Tails to a usb stick: https://tails.boum.org/install/ To use tails in a virtual machine, they have made a guide here: https://tails.boum.org/doc/advanced_topics/virtualization/virtualbox/ (The steps for virtualbox in Linux are pretty much the exact same as in Windows) MAKE SURE YOU USE NAT IN THE TAILS VIRTUAL MACHINE Hope you found this guide useful, and don't forget to send it to friends to help them use the internet privately, and securely
  25. Hello, I was wondering, is it possible to buy more simultaneous connections to a single account? I'd rather keep all VPN Payments under one account as i dont fancy buying 3 month subscriptions on multiple accounts lol
