  1. Okay so I'm trying to port forward plex and qbittorrent but testing it using Airvpn returns " Connection timed out (110) " and using https://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/ tells me that both ports are closed. The setup I have is a bit complicated since Plex and Qbittorrent are running in docker along with an openvpn-client to connect to Airvpn. Docker is running in vm using Fedora CoreOS and the vm is running on a machine with a Fedora Server. I tried different ports, rebooting the machines and temporarily disabling the firewall on the vm and host but its still no working. Also, I'm behind a carrier grade nat but to my understanding that should not affect port forwarding using Airvpn, right? So not exactly sure were the problem is.
  2. Hello AirVPN Staff and others. I would very much like to have an API call for creating and removing port forwardings, including requesting a random port. This would allow users to have a different port open for every session started. Setting up a port to be forwarded is already pretty simple, but it does still require having a web browser running and logging in to Air. This may be a small obstacle, but an obstacle nonetheless. I strongly suspect many people will set up a port forwarding only once, and then using the same port for all future sessions, and this has some negative implications for privacy. It is already possible to have this functionality when talking to Air's web server through a browser and clicking buttons manually, so I'm making the assumption it will not be too difficult to do the same through an official HTTP-based API. Does this make sense? I'd love to hear what you think.
  3. Hello gentlemen, I have a problem with port forwarding. Let's say I reserved port xxx via the AirVPN website. The internal port is identical. When I run telnet over port xxx using the internal IP - I get the connection. The TCP test on the website also succeeds. However, when I telnet over port xxx using the mapped external IP address - it times out. I also ran nmap on the external IP, but the only opened ports were 53 DNS, and three nginx ports 89, 843, and 880. I tried using different ports, connecting to different servers, but no luck.
  4. Hi, I have used forwarded ports with no problem over the last year but suddenly none of my forwarded ports are working. I'm getting "Not reachable on server IP over the external port XXXX, tcp protocol. Error : 110 - Connection timed out" when I try to check them in the client area here. Any ideas what the problem might be?
  5. It seems that for P2P clients I need to setup some kind of port forwarding here: https://airvpn.org/ports/ Pretty confused as to what this does and how it should be setup. I've read up about here: https://airvpn.org/faq/port_forwarding/ but it hasn't really made things any clearer. Say for example I use transmission or utorrent and have the port set at 9797. On my router I set port 9797 to then be forwarded to the same port on a specific local IP address. Do I then need to go to the AirVPN port forwarding page and set both the port and the local port to 9797 too? What about DDNS? Do I have to change or update this every time I switch servers? How does AirVPN know to always forward traffic from that port to me no matter which server I'm on? Bare in mind the company doesn't keep any logs or records
  6. Hello, I'd like to suggest adding a small note field to the port forwarding menu, where you could for example note which port works for which of your services. Having many of them and having to use a different external and internal port sometimes takes a while to remember which port was meant for which service. /off topic, on a sidenote I have to praise the performance / service of Air. I came over from PIA after Kape's takeover and would never look back. Speed wise, connectivity wise and especially for port forwarding needs. Will stay a good while. Have a nice day!
  7. So I have a DD-WRT router running in Openvpn client mode via my Airvpn account. I have setup forwarded ports in my airvpn account which work on my devices running their own airvpn client. However, I can't get any open ports to forward through the router to my Windows machine running apps that need the open ports. I've seen the notice on the help page for port forwarding: " you can't reach your listening service(s) through the VPN server exit-IP address from the very same machine that's running it/them and is connected to a VPN server, or from any other machine connected to that same VPN server." My interpretation of this statement is that my DD-WRT router running in vpn client mode, can't forward ports nor can my windows machine connected to my router access those ports. I'm struggling to really understand this restriction and why it is so. I have turned off all router and windows firewalls. The only way I can use forwarded ports is to run a windows client on my windows machine, which defeats having a dedicated vpn router. I have experimented over a month with commands for iptables using the router UI and other posts in the community to no avail. I hate to give up, but I'm out of solutions. Any simple answers and replies would be appreciated. I'm tech savy but not a guru.
  8. The port forwarding feature that AirVPN offers is very useful and I have been using it to forward ports that I would only like to forward for my computer's VPN connection, not other devices such as my phone or tablet, and I don't want those ports open for my phone or tablet because it might create a security risk. Since AirVPN already knows which device is connecting because of the device key which you generate for each device, it would be useful to implement a feature where you can forward a port only when a certain device connects to VPN, instead of forwarding it for all of them. Would be nice to also have the DDNS be setup per-device so that only certain devices would get DDNS, instead of how it is now where DDNS won't work at all if multiple devices are connected to the same AirVPN account. Please let me know your thoughts on this, thanks.
  9. Ok so Ive been having problems with remote access in plex, read countless posts and followed the suggestions but to no avail can anyone help? I have portforwarded within the airvpn client area using 32400 as the local port, tcp check came back green, no port forward on the router. Remote access will still not work. Public IP address showing in plex settings is that of my current airvpn connection, port number is that designated in the client area. I feel like this should be working and i cant think why it isn't. Anyone got any suggestions, i feel like i'm losing my mind. thanks in advance, james
  10. Let me start by saying I am not that confident with networking but have some limited experience. I was having problems connecting to my Synology DS1817+ from the internet. I am running OpenVPN on a ddwrt router on which I have made no changes. I did forward 2 ports to 5000 and 5001 in the AIRVPN Client Area but nothing was working. I read everything I could find within the AIR VPN forums ,Synology's , and beyond. In the end my problem was solved when I changed my DDNS address in Synology -Control Panel - External Access - DDNS to something like Sorry to just now get to the point. 1. Did I create a security vulnerability? 2. Is this the correct method to setup external access to my N.A.S.? 3. Should I consider entering an ip table into the ddwrt that only forwards those ports to my N.A.S.? Thank you in advance for any advice/information here. Ryan
  11. You might be aware of the popular project, DWS. https://github.com/Nummer/Destroy-Windows-10-Spying/releases I came across some port forwarding issues on my host machine and could not figure out why my ports were not forwarding, however, I did suspect DWS had something to do with it. https://github.com/Nummer/Destroy-Windows-10-Spying/blob/80d236b8524ac3d3292c3a77f0fe5f24e8e253db/DWS/MainWindow.xaml.cs#L335 This will mess up your port forwarding on your VPN client. The fix is to either reset your firewall rules or just disable Windows Firewall or just don't run DWS at all. Conclusion DWS conflicts with AirVPN. I hope this helps anyone!
  12. I have AirVPN all set up and running great on a pf Sense router that my home network sits behind. I am trying to get port forwarding set up for torrenting on a server running Windows Server 2016. As far as I can tell everything is set up exactly as it should be but I just can't get it to work. I am connected to Metallah. I have created the forwarded port on the AirVPN site. I have the port open in my Windows firewall. I have the port forwarded in pfSense. I have my torrent client configured to listen on the port I've set up in AirVPN and pfSense and I have my torrent client running with an active torrent trying to download. I have verified that the port is open and can be connected to on my LAN. I have tried 2 different torrent clients (qBittorrent and Deluge) as well as a port listener tool that simply opens any port you specify on TCP or UDP and just listens for connections. When I check the port on the AirVPN site I get error 110 timeout. I've also tried other sites and tools for performing external tests on that port and they all indicate that the port is not open. I have tried creating several new ports on AirVPN (at least 4) and tested on multiple computers on my network all with new corresponding NAT rules in pfSense. No matter what I do I can't get port forwarding to work and I'm at my wits end. I hope someone can help me figure this out. Here is a screenshot of my NAT rule in pfSense.
  13. Hello all, I have been trying all night to figure a way to port forward my Minecraft server over AirVPN. As of right now, I added a port forward from 7221(remote port) to 25565(Minecraft Server's local port). I started up the server after adding the local ip of the TAP to the server.properties file and ensuring the port was 25565. (I also tried with just leaving the server.properities file as default) I've tested with firewall on and firewall off just to make sure and that didn't fix anything either. I followed this guide https://airvpn.org/topic/9455-hosting-a-minecraft-server-with-airvpn/ word for word and did it with extra steps. I don't know if someone has got this to work or not, but if so I would love to hear what you did. I did put a ticket in and still waiting a response but figured I would put my question in here as well. I hope someone can come to my rescue. Thanks
  14. I've used the dynamic DNS service for a very long time and all of a sudden the DNS entry doesn't get updated anymore. What I have tried: Wait for 3 hours to make sure that the TTL has been reached: Check ✔Check the TCP Port via the ✔Check my client if the connection worked: Works ✔Try to connect via the IP under "Mapped to public IP:": Works ✔Connect to the server via the airdns.org domain name: Fail ✘Resolve the AirDNS IP: Fail ✘Issue: The IP address is wrong and hasn't been updated yet
  15. My setup is as follows. I have a docker setup where i run my vpn server in one container and my transmission application in another container. My transmission container uses the vpn container as a gateway which works quite nice. My only problem is that i'm unable to forward my peer listening port from my airvpn connection to the transmission container. I have added the port forwarding at airvpn.org but dont know how to forward it to my transmission container. I guess I have to add some iptables rules to my vpn gateway, which uses openvpn+iptables to connect airvpn servers. Does anyone have an idea of how to configure iptables to handle port forwarding?
  16. I have set up AirVPn on Pfsense according to the guide here in the forums and running well for many years. Also port forwarding worked flawless in the past. Some days ago I started Vuze to do some torrenting and and wondering about the slow speeds. The NAT/Firewall test revealed that only the port forwarding for UDP packets seem to work. The test for incoming TCP connection always times out. Please see attached NAT-rule from my pfsense box. Worked flawless in the past and I have not changed any configuration. Whats wrong ?
  17. Hi. I already posted here https://airvpn.org/topic/14949-help-with-port-forwarding/?do=findComment&comment=68954 but a standalone thread might make more sense. My question is, when I have multiple AirVPN sessions (multiple devices connected through AirVPN), how do I make sure that one port is forwarded to the device I intend to forward it to (which in my case is always my home server)? I saw no way of doing this in the port forwarding setup page/process. I thought that the multiple device/key management would help but could not find anything there. Any idea? :-) Note that I have port forwarding currently working very well with only my home server connected to the VPN. Since I now want to connect other devices (notebook, phone) through AirVPN, I want to make sure I am not going to ruin my setip. Thanks in advance!
  18. Maybe someone can help me. I forwarded a port in my client area, normally i remove the port forward when i'm done, but today in got the message; You don't own this port. Now i can not remove it from the port forward settings. Never ran into this one before, worked fine until today. Any ideas? thanks
  19. So I've added a forwarded port in the client area. The test fails with the message "Not reachable over server IP on the external port <port number>". So to check if the port is actually open I scanned the port on the exit IP and it reports the port state as filtered for TCP and open/filtered for UDP. Has anyone been experiencing the same issue?
  20. I have airvpn setup and my Thunderbird account is receiving and sending mail through gmail port 995 and 465. Is this secure? Does google see my home IP? I want to use the ports allocated from airvpn but could not get it working, and read that google only works with the ports above. Any advice? Do I need a new email server if I want to remain anonymous? Than you.
  21. I don't know if the Use UPnp / NAT-PMP port forwarding from my router should be checked or not in my torrent client (qbittorrent) since I'm not port forwarding from my router I'm port forwarding through Air. Other clients just say to enable those features or not but not through your router. But qbittorrent specifically says "from my router". I'm trying to figure out why my speeds are abysmal even though a speedtest shows them as very good. I tried unchecking them before asking here to see if it helped and it didn't but I may not have given it enough time.
  22. Hi great people, So I recently renewed my premium membership but the issue is that port forwarding no longer works for me, the thing is that port forwarding is very critical to my work because I need to remote control my work PC from my home on a daily bases now I that is no longer possible. So I'm asking, is any other person experiencing this problem? What can I do to get port forwarding working again? Thanks for your replies in advance.
  23. I've searched on this forum for multiple suggestions and nothing is working....... I Created a new port, Put said port in ubittorrent port listening box... made sure UPnP is off/random port is off. Pressed okay. tested port thru airvpn port client area.... message i got back is connection timeout.. checked on canyouseeme.org, got a connection timeout. YET im downloading the torrent however at VERY slow speeds. (200mb/s) I did the process again, but this time i left the box open when i created a port so it can create a random one, and i entered it in bittorrent client, and same as above happened... connection refused. What am i doing wrong???? im selecting UDP+TCP for port. is that right?
  24. Hi all, The screenshot below shows the struggles I've been having with AirVPN, since I bought a subscription yesterday My internet connection is 30 mbit, but I already know from experience without vpn that the provider delivers a consistent 10 mbit connection (something they won't fix), However, since I joined AirVPN the p2p capacity has grinded to a halt! Using a private torrent subscription, I normally download 1mb/s, and I still seem to be able to reach those speeds for a few minutes per hour, but the rest of the time the speeds are reduced to 50kb/s max. I've set up Deluge to only listen on a specific port, which I received through this website, but it seems to no avail. Looking at the eddie log, it appears that the slowdown either started or ended around the 9:50 mark (I wasn't tracking when I took the screenshots), and would really like to consistently receive quicker speeds. Is there anything I can try? I've already tried a few different servers and did the general reading-up on the forum.
