  1. Hello everyone, I have AirVPN installed on a second desktop of mine, and I'm having an odd problem with it. I can connect to AirVPN servers fine and get acceptable speeds, however, when I shut down the VPN, I can no longer connect to the internet. So, I need to be connected to some VPN server to be able to connect to the internet. I suspect this is due to a bug with the Network Lock feature, which I'm using on both desktops (one of which is not having any problems). Both desktops are connected to the save network via Ethernet cable. I tried disabling network lock on the afflicted desktop, but had no results. I also tried uninstalling AirVPN (and restarting the PC), which also did not help. Is this a known bug, or perhaps something entirely different? I tried searching online for a solution, but all I get are threads about people not being able to connect with a VPN, not without. Thanks in advance!
  2. Hello, I've recently buy an account and it works great but i can't connect without the app. It's very disturbing if i want to connect to a restricted wi-fi or on a slow connection. I've tried to uninstall it but it doesn't work. i will try to uninstall and Ccleaner or search how to make it work more longer than i did but it still a problem to solve. SFMBE (Sorry For My Bad English), i'm not a native speaker. Thanks in advance
  3. Hello, i wanted to ask the AirVPN community, is it possible to access AirVPN servers on a machine that you do not have admin permissions, such as a library or workplace?
  4. I have not had a chance to setup my pfsense box to connect strickly to airVpn. I have been trolling the pfSense forums and read the wiki and seen where a few developers split from pfSense because it was becoming too commercial. I downloaded the image and installed in a VM but have not done much to it. Just wanted to know how many here would move to this version of firewall in leu of pfSense. Dont get me wrong im sticking with pfsense since pfSense_fan did one heck of a job on the guide, i was just wondering.
  5. Hello! I am using ESET Smart Security 9, which comes with a personal firewall. This causes the Windows Firewall to be turned off, causing Network Lock to not work. My question is: what are the firewall rules I have to set in ESET's firewall in order to only allow VPN traffic to go through?
  6. Hello, Prior to having trouble I was using an older version of Comodo Firewall that had a GUI similar to the one in this post: https://airvpn.org/topic/3405-windows-comodo-prevent-leaks/ (sorry I don't recall the exact version). The firewall was working fine and prevented any form of leaks when AirVPN was disconnected for whatever reason. Upon doing a clean install of Comodo Firewall two days ago and reconfiguring the global rules as described in the tutorial above traffic coming from my computer when the VPN connections is down is no longer blocked based on ipleak.net. Im assuming there is something that changed in the new version of Comodo Firewall because I followed the same procedure as I had in the past. This blog post: https://www.bestvpn.com/blog/10218/build-your-own-vpn-kill-switch-in-windows-comodo/ also mentioned problems regarding their implementation of preventing leaks upon using the new version of Comodo Firewall, so I don't believe I am following the tutorial provided by AirVPN incorrectly. If anyone else could test AirVPNs initial tutorial with the newest version of Comodo Firewall it would be appreciated just so I know it's not me that is doing something wrong. If that is the case I can take screenshots of what I've done to try to fix my issue. As of now I have been using the Network Lock feature in the GUI and it seems to be working fine which I will stick to if I can't get Comodo to work. Thanks.
  7. Is it possible to configure Comodo Firewall (or Windows firewall) to block a particular browser (e.g. Firefox) from accessing the internet when via the VPN interface (TAP adapter), while everything else is allowed to use the VPN connection?
  8. Basically, after I enable network lock several programs ask for permission to go through my firewall (bittorrent sync, plex, qbittorrent) and I don't know what I should do. Will letting them through cause my IP to leak if AirVPN goes down?
  9. Hey, Ok so here is my problem: I have port 443/80 forwarded on my home router to a little server at home, after connecting to the VPN, I'm unable to reach it from outside. now here is my question: Is it possible to be connected to VPN and still be reachable from my private IP, and if so how? Thx <3
  10. Hey guys, here is my setup: I have port 80/443 forwarded to my little server at home with my home router, works great but after connecting to VPN it stops working and i'm unable to reach my server from outside over port 80/443, still works on my LAN though... Is it possible to be connected to VPN and still use local portforwards? Thx <3
  11. Hello, I used OpenVPN on my 2 pc (both WIndows 10) and since 2 weeks my client won't work on my desktop pc. I have to do the stuff i want on my crappy laptop. The air vpn client start but won't connect to a server. It already did this on my laptop but it stopped mysteriously Thanks in advance and SFMBE (Sorry For My Bad English).
  12. Hi, enabling Network Lock at Windows/system start make sense to me, so I'm looking into a FW option to go along with it... currenlty running Symantec Endpoint Protection... gotta see if I can translate the Comodo tutorial over to SEP... so besides Comodo free version, which is mentioned in the NL tut on this site, are there any other FW solutions that you can recommend (commercial or free) that can be easily set up (possibly with a step by step guide here) to shut down all traffic except the AirVPN tunnel ? Thanks. - M

  14. Hi guys My problem is the following: I have port forwarding enabled on my airvpn, and I can ssh without problem with the command ssh -p myport user@myhost.airdns.org from home or from my cellphone. Now the problem is that at work myport is locked by the corporate firewall, and for all I can see all the other useful myports are... Port 22 is instead open... is there a way to go around the firewall? Please let me know. Thanks a lot
  15. Following NaDre's instructions on "Guide to Setting Up VPN Just for Torrenting on Windows"....... https://airvpn.org/topic/9491-guide-to-setting-up-vpn-just-for-torrenting-on-windows/ I wanted some input on whether "everything" looks ok and is setup right. I'm posting screenshots below of how it's setup. Input from any advanced user, staff and anyone that knows what they're doing would be awesome. Thank You and have an day/night. *Some pics were unable to be uploaded*
  16. Well, I had some disappointing results with DD-WRT (lack of stability on my router) so I'm planning to go back to stock firmware and place a firewall appliance between the router and the modem, to control which traffic goes where in a simple, GUI way. I saw some posts on here mentioning pFsense, but me being me I wanted to try out something else first. More Googling showed Sophos UTM is a popular Firewall with a great user interface. Has anyone had any success running AirVPN with Sophos UTM Firewall? I have the software installed but I can't seem to find a way to add an openVPN client connection, SSL or SSH connection. Perhaps I'm missing something? I'm also considering trying out Untangle, IPfire and finally pFsense if I don't find what I want with the others. Yeah, I'm scared off pFsense's interface..
  17. Does the term host address from AirVPN.xml serve as a synonym for front-end server from e.g. Windows & Comodo - Prevent leaks tutorial? AirVPN's front-end servers have been changed few times since I bought first subscription. Can I therefore use AirVPN.xml to update Comodo Firewall/iptables configuration?
  18. Dear AirVpn Forum Members, Since i am using Airvpn in my work, behind work firewall, my firewall blocks ddwrt open vpn connection. But in my computer I can use AirVpn SSH in my work. All i need please make a tutorial, how we setup ssh + openvpn on to DDWRT routers for airvpn. There is SSH service in DDWRT. I need how we configure it. Could you please show me the configuration of SSH + airvpn openvpn settings for ddwrt router? Best regards,
  19. I m connected to Talitha and all DNS is going trough the VPN. I took a look at my windows firewall (which i enabled due to "network lock") and it shows a lot of these: date time action protocol src-ip dst-ip src-port dst-port size tcpflags tcpsyn tcpack tcpwin icmptype icmpcode info path 2015-06-29 11:33:34 DROP UDP 58683 3478 0 - - - - - - - SEND 2015-06-29 11:33:35 DROP UDP 58683 3478 0 - - - - - - - SEND 2015-06-29 11:33:37 DROP UDP 58683 3478 0 - - - - - - - SEND --> is an amazon IP After allowing this IP, my IP get leaked by webrtc. (tested on https://ipleak.net/) Can anyone explain this behaviour?
  20. Hi, I've been using ufw/gufw for a long time now to prevent leaks which works great after I followed worric's guide https://airvpn.org/topic/5586-prevent-leaks-with-linux-firestarter-also-stop-traffic-when-vpn-drops/?do=findComment&comment=5642 ​However there's one drawback, which is that all IP's must be resolved prior to connecting because the DNS resolution doesn't get through the firewall. The problem with this is that you can't let it choose the best server for the area/region by resolving for instance gb.vpn.airdns.org. It seems that the best you can do is get a random selection from the list of servers. Is there a way around this? For example to only let that dns query through? or am I wrong somehow? Any clarification is greatly appreciated! ​ Edit: Grammar
  21. A company I work at utilizes the Sophos UTM Firewall for packet filtering. While it's perfectly okay for me when they block torrent sites or porn, they also block games sites (steampowered.com), personal storage services (wuala.com) and anonymizers (airvpn.org). They even drop packets to social network domains (facebook.com) (no blocking message, Firefox says it simply couldn't connect). OS is Windows XP. Regardless of the changes made to the computer PC Sheriff restores a preconfigured snapshot after every reboot. But what serious changes can be made if the only user you can login to is restricted? So, first thought: proxy. But hell no, proxy-listen.de is blocked! And pretty much every other website offering a proxy list which I found on the internet, too. Okay, I need new ideas. TOR. Oh no. Blocked. Then, by accident, I typed airdns.org instead of airvpn.org and Firefox successfully connected to the AirDNS website. There are two links - AirVPN homepage, and a link to the DNS FAQ entry. Both work, although airvpn.org is blocked. I can even type airvpn.org after this and Firefox could establish a connection. This really turned everything upside down. What if torproject.org can be unlocked in the same way? So I searched for Torproject.org with Google and clicked the link. Success! But why on earth does this work? I could even download the package! I installed it, I attempted a connection. It's stuck at "Connecting to a relay directory". Last week I let it run for an hour and it could successfully connect to a directory but couldn't go further. Pity. Don't have the time to let it run longer. My ideas to solve this: Linux Live CD. But I cannot configure the network settings because there seems to be no DHCP server and I cannot view network settings, registry, command prompt, the device manager, etc. for valuable information on IPs for example.Configuring a small proxy at home and connecting to it. Since the firewall is clearly working in blacklist mode it would work. But I need some advice on which software to use and how to configure it to redirect traffic. Never did that before, honestly. I appreciate every kind of input you can share, especially on other ideas and guides. Thank you in advance.
  22. Hello everyone, I purchased AirVPN recently to keep my torrent traffic private, and am just now getting around to putting it to use. However, I'm getting some extremely slow speeds, or rather no speed at all. I'm using the AirVPN client and letting it connect to a recommended server, but consistently get 0 B/s (Yes, that's B/s) download and upload. It will occasionally jump to ~100 B/s, or even ~100 KB/s, but drops back to 0 B/s shortly after. I also took the speed test on this website which gave the following results: Down: 0.477 Mbit/s Out, 0.470 Mbit/s In (98%), 1MB - Up: 0.382 Mbit/s Out, 0.322 Mbit/s In (84%), 1MB - Date: Tue, 31 Mar 2015 19:28:09 GMT - Buffers: 1MB/1MB - Laps: 3, Time: 325.56 secs Not quite 0 B/s like the AirVPN client says, but still unacceptably slow considering I get around 50-60 Mbits/s download and upload (Verizon) when not connected to the VPN. I'm a total greenhorn when it comes to just about anything networking, and assume I messed something up when trying to configure the VPN with my torrent client (Deluge), so I'm just going to go into what exactly I've done so far and then maybe someone here can give me some guidance. First, I followed the P2P optimization guide found here: https://airvpn.org/faq/p2p/ In the end, my settings look like this: http://i.imgur.com/SnGiGJ9.png Which looks correct to me, for whats its worth. Second, I setup Windows firewall rules to block Deluge's connection in the event that the VPN unexpectedly disconnects, or I forget to turn it on or something. I did so following this guide: https://vpn.ac/knowledgebase/55/Windows-Firewall-rules-to-block-P2PorTorrent-traffic-if-VPN-disconnects.html I tested to make sure it works with the little speed I have and it does seem to work. I'll get a few KB/s while connected to the VPN, and it will stop or start back up when I disconnect and reconnect to the VPN respectively. Aside from those two things, I've done nothing else, and don't even know if there is still more I need to do aside from those two things. I'm hoping the pros here can point me in the right direction because what I've tried to find out on my own so far has been fruitless. Thanks in advance!
  23. Hi everybody, At the moment i am using Comodo internet security 8 and i like it.I have not noticed any security problems whilst using it but from reading some of the comodo forums its not as secure as CIS 7. I have used Airvpn's guide to block everything outside the VPN which is mainly why i use it. I would like to know some of the views from Airvpn and its users on what the best firewall and antivirus solution is.Also recently with the privdog issue bundled with comodo 6 and 7 and also its browsers i'm less sure that security and privacy is really their top concern.I have not been able to find a decent explanation about the privdog issue from comodo so am looking for an alternative. I am not a wreckless googler clicking on anything but i worry with the bugs in 8 i may not as secure as i thought. Some of the videos i've seen about how easy it is for those who know how to bypass its security make me wonder if comodo is still the best option for me. What do you guys think and recommend. This is the link about comodo 8 issues ( https://forums.comodo.com/news-announcements-feedback-cis/do-you-still-think-that-comodo-v8-is-safe-to-use-t108660.0.html )
  24. Hello, I am testing airvpn and I was wondering why I have to use Windows Firewall rather than my Comodo Firewall. I don't want to use Windows. My previous VPN did not use it and I seemed to be secure after doing port checks and so on. It is confusing having 2 Firewalls active. For a new user it will be too difficult to mess around with Firewall setting so mybe there should be an option to use another Firewall when installing airvp program?
  25. Dear community, Hoping someone can help with this.... I am trying to setup a firewall script for my router running Tomato Firmware 1.28.0000 -121 K26ARM USB AIO-64K by SHIBBY on a Netgear R7000 Nighthawk on mostly default settings apart from the VPN Client. The script is to block all non-VPN traffic even if the connection fails and i have tried several suggestions made in the forums without success. Below is the script most people have success with (except me): iptables -I FORWARD -i br0 -o tun0 -j ACCEPT iptables -I FORWARD -i tun0 -o br0 -j ACCEPT iptables -I FORWARD -i br0 -o vlan2 -j DROP iptables -I INPUT -i tun0 -j REJECT iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o tun0 -j MASQUERADE (from https://airvpn.org/topic/4287-how-to-block-all-traffic-with-dd-wrt-if-vpn-connection-fails/) I think the problem lies in the assigned interface names. Below is my current routing table while VPN'd: In short can someone modify the script to suite my arrangement?? or let me know what direction I need to take to set this up.... using the script above lets traffic through even if I stop the VPN client and my attempts to modify usually blocks all traffic. Any help would me much appreciated, EWS
