  1. Hi all, I have a little problem. I try to tell it with my terrible English. So i like to setup this VPN(airvpn client) >>> SOCKS PROXY>>> Browsers and others, virtual machines etc... (all socks traffic over vpn). The host os is linux.
  2. Very interesting paper here: ​ ​ http://blog.csiro.au/tinker-torrentor-streamer-spy-vpn-privacy-alert/ ​ ​No mention of AirVPN, though.
  3. Hello everyone! I visited https://2ip.io/privacy/ through airvpn which told me that the possibility of using an anonimity tool is 99%. So they say that there is the possibility of 99% that I am using a VPN. This is true. They had found the difference between timezones, open ports 1194, 500 and 4500, and VPN fingerprint - OpenVPN, AES, MAC is SHA1, LZO. What could be done with that? I can only change my timezone but the rest does not depend on me. Do you have any ideas?
  4. Hi, Long-time AirVPN user, I'm on a linux PC, using the ufw method described here: (https://airvpn.org/topic/5586-prevent-leaks-with-linux-firestarter-also-stop-traffic-when-vpn-drops/?p=14095). I would like to share this connection with other devices, having my PC serve as a kind of router. Assume I cannot modify my router or the other devices to natively use AirVPN. I have been able to create a wifi hotspot using an ethernet connection. However, my devices are unable to complete the connection until I disable the firewall. Obviously, this is not an acceptable solution as it will allow leaks and I was wondering if anyone here in the community could modify randombit and worric's method to allow hotspot usage.
  5. Hey folks, so for some reason my VPN speeds have gone from about 20 or so mbit to about 10-500 kb/s. My phone is not even capable of establishing a connection it is so slow. I have tested it on different devices and on my cell network in case my wifi was acting up. It appears to me like Verizon is throttling my connection into oblivion, when i disable VPN everything goes back to normal 40-75 mbit or so, which is why i am making this assumption. i am on the east coast and my ping to Ontario Canada has gone from 70 or so ms to over 260 ms. Ill attach logs and see if they help any but any help is appreciated. AirVPN_20160516_154857.txt EDIT: It appears to have fixed itself, although i have absolutely no idea why it happened at all
  6. I just wrote a review on TN (torrentfreak.com) about AirVPN after reading a good article by Ernesto. The article talked about important features to look for in a VPN followed by a list of the top VPN's for 2016 they reviewed and asked questions to. AirVPN didn't even make the list which was really surprising me. They did get reviewed nicely, once I found that article. After noticing AirvPN on the sidebar in the user review section, I noticed it had 5 stars reviewed by the user at the end of TN's take. However, it was only reviewed by one other user. I decided to add to my opinion with a detailed review I'm posting below. I'm also going to provide a link to the original article I read and a link to where we can all add our reviews. Let's help get AirVPN put on the list; if not possibly the top 10 at the very least. Here is the link to the original article: https://torrentfreak.com/vpn-anonymous-review-160220/ Here is the link to where we can add to the review: https://torrentfreak.com/review/airvpn-reviews/ Below is review. Let me know what you think.
  7. https://torrentfreak.com/vpn-provider-proxy-sh-compromised-gag-order-160626/ How would AirVPN react in such a case? Could they just shutdown the server? The thing I don't get: Proxy.sh is unser seychelle jurisdiction but they are forced to turn on logging on french server? Weired...
  8. Hello! I'm currently using Linux Mint 18 and would like to configure my system to use VPN over TOR (PC->TOR->VPN). How would I go about doing this? I'm using OpenVPN via terminal with UFW for a network lock. My UFW Config: [AIRVPN SRVR IP] 443/udp ALLOW OUT Anywhere Anywhere ALLOW OUT Anywhere on tun0 Anywhere (v6) ALLOW OUT Anywhere (v6) on tun0 Added to .ovpn configuration to prevent DNS leak: script-security 2 up /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf down /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf Thanks!

  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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?
  13. 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?
  14. 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.
  15. 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?
  16. 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!
  17. 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!
  18. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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."
  22. 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?
  23. 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!
  24. 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.

  25. 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.
