  1. I have posted the logs to support but I don't know how much help they will be, Using TalkTalk D-LINK router until today when I switched to my new Huawei HG633 router to coincide with a new fiber connection starting today for which the new router is needed. From the word go with the new router, terrible DNS leaks showing at ipleak.net and dnsleaks.com with TalkTalk looming all over the page. DNS leaks occur: Both wireless and wired On two laptops (Lenovo and Acer) but not on the Toshiba laptop Not on the Android phone on both Windows 8 and Windows 10. Network Lock is enabled, of course. If anyone can shine a light, please do!
  2. Hello, this is a note to the Air staff, and to the Administrators of this service. I've moved to your network from another very popular VPN provider. Your client looks quite promising, however there are a couple things I need to know, and I will list them below. It's worth noting the following: • I'm running Windows 7 x64 on a fully encrypted machine, with a 100Mbps direct PPPoE connection, no router. • I use Bit Defender Internet Security 2016 which comes with all the bells and whistles. • I am adequately protected against WebRTC leaks. I have tried various servers to test the reliability of the connection, and of the client in general. A few things to note plus a couple of questions about Eddie and the reliability of your service: DNS Leaks: Upon checking the connection using your website IPLeak.NET, I have consistently experienced DNS leaks discovering my ISP, on servers from multiple countries except for Sweden, Switzerland and Latvia, which were consistently reliable with no leaks. The hardware didn't change and no settings were changed in the operating system or on the ISP's PPPoE connection in between server switching. All applications that would use the internet were closed before disconnecting and re-launched upon switching to a new server. What would be the explanation for consistently experiencing DNS leaks on so many of your servers? Network Lock: A tour of your client Eddie, revealed that Network Lock relies heavily on Windows Firewall. Considering I'm probably not the only one using a fully featured internet security suite (Bit Defender Internet Security 2016), which has its own firewall, Windows Firewall is therefore inactive (deactivated by Bit Defender to prevent conflicts). How does your client handle the situation where one of your customers is using an Internet Security suite, and as such, Windows Firewall being inactive in the context? Are there specific settings and/or Firewall rules that I can create and use with Bit Defender's Firewall to tailor it around Eddie's Network Lock, and seal the gaps, as Windows Firewall would do, or is Eddie's Network Lock limited to Windows Firewall only? Would enabling Network Lock which in turn enables Windows Firewall, conflict with the second Firewall, thus compromising Firewall integrity? There's a mode in the Network Lock section of the client called "Automatic" but it's not clear how Automatic is defined in the context. Does this mean that it works with the Internet Security suite Firewall or something else? What does the Automatic mode do specifically? Tor Exit Node: On some of the servers (predominantly Netherlands), the Tor Exit Node indicator is lit green when checking with your service at IPLeak.NET. On other servers it isn't. What are the mechanics behind this?
  3. Hey guys, Can anybody help or explain why i'm getting DNS leaks even with Network Lock enabled? It's intermittent but using ipleak.net i can see it is occurring. Not sure what information i can provide to help anyone answering. I'm currently using a wired connection and running Windows 7(64bit). Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  4. Just recently did some testing. If you are using Windows Live Mail as your mail client, It will cause DNS leaks. Test for yourself and see!
  5. Hi all, In the case of DNS leakage, within pfsense there's good way to prevent that from happening. In this case you don't need to tweak all your Windows machines ;-) In pfsense navigate to Systems ------> General Setup and set everything as in the below picture. Use the DNS servers from AirVPN. Note that with my settings (also described here and here), your internet will drop in case your vpn connection drops. Then you need to set the wan back to default manually. That's it. No more dns leakage! (I had 6 and 2 from my isp)... knicker
  6. Hi there, i am new here. I got the vpn client a couple of days ago and i am getting a little paranoid about potential DNS Leaks if the server drops while i am downloading. When i connect to the AirVPN Client i always type in the DNS servers of AirVPN (in the tcp/ip4 protocol of my WIFI wireless network and in the windows TAP network adapter) and than i start surfing in internet. Is that a reliable protection from possible leaks?? I also downloaded a fix that should prevent such DNS leaks. Its named: dnsleakfix.exe But i am not quite sure if it works properly and if it protects me from leaks. What do you think about it?? Best regards;))
