AirVPN, Tor & obfs4 bridges
xyzt posted a topic in Troubleshooting and ProblemsHello, I am not able to use AirVPN when using obfs4 bridges in Tor. I have found these threads on the topic, but none of them seem to give a conclusive solution: TOR (obfs) & AirVPN not workingTor with obfs4 - can't connect to airvpnI am running the latest 64-bit version of Eddie (2.11.10) and Tor 6.0.8 on Windows x64. I have been very careful to check that IP and ports in Tor network settings (Options --> Advanced --> Network --> Settings) match the ones in the "Proxy/Tor" section of Eddie preferences. Eddie log: I 2017.01.14 03:26:55 - Session starting. . 2017.01.14 03:26:55 - IPv6 disabled with packet filtering.

Can we talk Tap on linux (mint/ubuntu)
Thalium posted a topic in Troubleshooting and ProblemsI'm not sure where to start on this one tbh. I was sat looking at my comp the other day and came up with the idea of using my router firewall (multi OS boot PC) to reject the majority of unwanted traffic. At the moment on my linux mint install (I'm very new to linux - 2 weeks) this is done by iptables and similar setup on windows OS. With windows this isn't a problem as the tap adapter produces a MAC but on my linux install it uses Tun masquerading as my eth adapter IP/no MAC. I should probably first ask is there a need - it would make life easier and rejects traffic at the router reducing network load, a second(1st) line of leak defence if an accidental change is made? I can't setup a firewall rule on my router (non wrt/tomato) that will give the restrictions needed without a separate MAC or IP to my physical adapter. I have tried to setup a Tap adapter on my linux install and ultimately failed. I have tried (linux mint) using gnome network manager (bridge utils installed) ticking the box use tap and downloaded Airvpn config files (no extra lines at point of download) replacing the lines in the file after putting in directory 'dev tun' with 'dev tap0' along with bridge ip's etc and without. I did read somewhere I may need to change 'update-resolv-conf'... Basically I'm out of my depth without help at this stage and I didn't want to make the huge number of changes some articles I read gave guidance for without further advice and guidance. In summary: 1- Will this indeed work well as a second leak protection measure? 2- Is it worth the effort? 3- Thoughts on the idea? 4- How do I change to use a Tap instead of tun with minimal/succinct changes? IF this makes no sense at all, please feel free to pull me up on it
Hi. I use AirVPN in Ubuntu's network manager and would like to use it as tap0, as opposed to tun0, so that I can bridge my connection via ethernet cable to another device (one which is not as easy to configure) and have it connect to the Internet the same way a virtual machine would (i. e. connecting through AirVPN the way my PC would). Unfortunately, I have found no way to bridge (or otherwise sharee) the connection besides using a TAP device. However, upon changing the .ovpn files from 'dev tun' and 'persist-tun' to 'dev tap' and 'persist-tap', I have found that I am unable to access the Internet. There doesn't seem to be a whole lot out there on sharing a VPN connection via Ubuntu, so I'd appreciate any suggestions that you might have for me. Oh, and if this is possible, I wonder why AirVPN files pick TUN over TAP. Is it in any way safer? Would I be compromising security in this case to get a little more functionality?
VPN on a tomato router that is bridged
sororvirakam posted a topic in Troubleshooting and ProblemsHi, Thanks for a great VPN service. I've been using the Windows client so far with no problems. However, I recently bought an Asus RT-N16 router for the purpose of bridging with the router upstairs, in order to get a wired Internet connection downstairs. This worked out well. I also wanted to use openVPN on the router downstairs using tomato (shibby), but I've run into a problem. In the howto article it says I have to change the DNS servers under basic/networking, but the problem is as the router is bridged to the router upstairs, the gateway and first DNS address is the LAN address to the router upstairs. I've tried setting up openVPN without changing the DNS settings, but it didn't seem to work very well (at all). Is it possible to use openVPN on a tomato router that is bridged to another router that it gets the internet access from?
