  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. I am new and not sure how to use this. I have paid for the service and have an account set up already. I am trying to set up the open vpn gui but whenever I click the generate button it only opens a notepad document and that is all. Is this correct? What am I supposed to do with this? Any help would be nice, thanks. -Dave
  4. first of all im not fluenty in english so its really hard to understand what some thread are tellin me to do, on top of this im not a computer geek i dont know nothin about how stuff works this is all new to me. the reason i want a vpn is so i can torrent safely, thats all. i dont want the isp to know that im downloadin stuff in torrent site, ive had already receive a letter about 5 years ago, i already moved to another state i dont want to happen again here, can somebody explain to me the steps to do this like im 5 years old? i want to buy airvpn, after i buy it what happens next? i saw a youtube video and i saw that there were two thing that airvpn gave the guy,, airvpn and openvpn why two? and which one do i used? also i read about fordward port to my bittorrrent client i dont whats that or p2p or protocol. can i do this succesfully if im usin my isp router? just tell me how to get it to work so i cant safely download some torrent which i rarely do but when i do i like it to be safe. thanks so much, all this is like a new language to me lol
  5. Hi all, I've build a pfsense router myself because I found that speeds were dramatically dropping through my Linksys router (EA6500) or through my client. By building my own router I had more control over the hardware and firmware. I have a 200 Mb/s - 10 Mb/s ISP connection. My router build as follows: Shutlle DS61 V1.1 mini ITX barebone / socket 1155 / 2 x Gbit LAN2 x 4 GB SO DDR3 Kingston HyperXIntel XEON E3-1230 V2 3.10 GHz (has no graphic chip)Kingston 60 GB SSDIn order to get graphics (which I'll need for installation, since the mini ITX motherboard doesn't support an extra graphics card) I bought an old Celeron 2.70 GHz with graphic chip. Now pfsense is installed, I will be using the Celeron for a while in case something goes wrong in pfsense settings and I'll be needing graphics again. So after I'm done with installing packages, setting up everything, I will replace it with the XEON. Speedtest with the Celeron while connected to VPN I think that is pretty impressive since I had around 60 Mb/s - 9.5 Mb/s before I had this router. If you forget about the XEON and keep the Celeron (for 24/7 use, I'll take the XEON also because of it's 'AES NI' instruction within the chipset) it will cost you about 500 dollars or about 370 euro's. The XEON included adds an extra 250 dollars or 195 euro's. This is a better investment than buying any other consumer router with a 600 MHz Broadcom processor. This is a kick ass router! For a proper installation of pfsense I can recommend this video: (good packages: squid, havp, snort (get a paid oinkcode for 27 dollars/year, otherwise you'll have a 10 days delay in updates)) SET UP AIRVPN IN PFSENSE Configure an airvpn *.ovpn file (use a region, airvpn will connect to the best server automatically)From the pfSense interface, navigate to the dropdown menus: System ---> Cert Manager and stay in the first tab.Click the button as seen here to create a new certificate. Give it a description like: cert airvpn. Ensure that "Import an existing certificate authority" is selected. Open the *.ovpn file and copy/paste the first certificate (starting with: -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- and ending with: -----END CERTIFICATE-----) into the 1st fieldClick save (leave the orher field empty)Click on the tab Certificates and click on the plus button as seen here Give it a description like: certificate airvpn. Ensure that "Import an existing certificate authority" is selected.Open the *.ovpn file and copy/paste the second certificate (starting with: ---- CERTIFICATE:----- and ending with: -----END CERTIFICATE-----) into the 1st fieldSo in the file it looks like this: -----END CERTIFICATE----- (end of the first certificate we've just imported) </ca> <cert> Certificate: The second copy/paste should start at: Certificate: copy/paste the third certificate (starting with: -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- and ending with: -----END CERTIFICATE-----) into the 3d fieldClick saveNavigate to the system dropdown menus: VPN ---> OpenVPNClick the Client tab and click on the Plus buttonFollow below settings in the pictures where: 1. serverhost or host adres can be found in the *.ovpn file ending with probably airvpn.org, 2.The serverport can be found in the top of the *ovpn file as well. Navigate to the system dropdown menus Interfaces ----> (assign) and click on the Plus button -Note in the previous screenshot you will notice a StrongVPN interface. you will NOT have that on your box yet, so dont worry. After clicking on the plus button pfSense will tell you it has successfully added a new interface. the network port name will most likley be named "ovpnc1". Ensure that the new interface is selected as "ovpnc1" (it could be ovpnc2, ovpnc3, etc... depends if you have other ovpn interfaces or not)navigate to the system dropdown menus Interfaces ---> OPT1 (or whatever your new interface from the previous step is) and follow steps in below picture Click saveNavigate to the system dropdown menus System ---> Routing and click on the Plus button Follow the settings in the picture below -Note 1: The ip seen in the picture is the ip of OpenDNS -Note 2: By selecting "Default Gateway", the connection to the internet drops if the VPN connection drops. You'll have to set the WAN as default manually in the case if you need an internet connection. navigate to the system dropdown menus Firewall ---> Rules and click on the LAN tabClick on the Plus button to create a new ruleFollow instructions in the picture below Action: PASS -- Interface: LAN Protocol: ANY Source: LAN Subnet Destination: ANY -- Description: LAN to Internet force through VPN **IMPORTANT**: scroll down to "Gateway" under the "Advanced features" of the rule. Set gateway to your VPN interface (see above picture). After Clicking save, you should see something like this navigate to the system dropdown menus Firewall ---> NAT and click on the Outbound tabenable "Manual Outbound NAT rule generation" and select save. Reboot the router and you're done... If you want to/need to start manually, go to Status -----> Services and click on the Play button next to the VPN interface status. Check Status ------> Dashboard for connections as seen in the picture below (in the WAN section you'll see your ISP's IP, which is connection you're coming from to Airvpn (Note from AirVPN: We inevitably know it. Any reference will be deleted when the connection is closed). Don't worry, you're visible with a different IP on the internet. The reason I choose a XEON is the 10% watt reduction and the AES NI instructions in the chip (AirVPN is 256 bit AES encrypted). This will lower my CPU usage and speed up the process. Below you find a picture with system loads while having 10 torrents running and downloading a large file at full speed from usenet (ssl encrypted)... See the CPU usage on the Celeron. That will change I think with a XEON. Good luck and don't forget to install Snort, HAVP and Squit on your pfsense. Good guides out there on Google... knicker
