Hi everyone, i used AirVPN when I had to use public wifi; this year I bought a Chromebook so I was looking for an alternative for 4-5 days. I've read some threads on Reddit about hotels anche other places (like Starbucks) that block the VPNs through firewall and now I've come up with an idea: could I use my smartphone for tethering with a WiFi (my carrier doesn't permit tethering) and force AirVPN on port 80? I read that AirVPN allow connection on port 80 (correct me please, if I'm wrong) and this port should be the best to avoid firewall trouble. Thank you for your helping. Bobo
hi, I'm using airvpn since two months. It works fine when my laptop is connected through 3G data modem but I have some problems on hotel public hotspot. The first month of use it was ok. The behavior of hotel wifi is: 1. connect to wifi network 2. browser automatically redirects to login page 3. after login you can surf the internet access is time limited but it seems random and lower than 24 hours. Since some weeks, this behavior changed: it doesn't prompt the login page anymore (but it affects my user only, I know for sure that others in the hotel still need to use the login page every day). And the connection problem arised. The problem is that I lose connectivity to the server that I am connected to easily and randomly, even after 5 minutes (but airvpn client starts to count the login time from 2h:00:00). When I lose connection I must shutdown airvpn client and disconnect from the wifi network. Then reconnect it and restart airvpn client and hope that the connection will be solid. I am pretty sure that the problem is the hotel wifi network but why this happens? Logs are attached (network disconnection and reconnection failed). Thanks p.s.: 1. I use comodo firewall with rules described in your howto and win 8.1 2. I use airvpn client 3. It works fine with 3G mobile data connection log03.txt log04.txt
