Any advice greatly appreciated on this subject as i am not of a high level of understanding when it comes to networking in Linux iptables! When connected to a vpn server through Eddie on a Ubuntu based Linux OS i always use the network lock feature in Eddie. This should lock the Linux iptables to stop any traffic outside the vpn tunnel. When i use any IP check service, or torrent address checker, (e.g ipleak.net) they always come back with no leaks. However, whilst torrenting, if i use the NETSTAT command in the terminal, i can see established connections to IP addresses matching the IP's of peers I'm connected to in my torrent client! I thought that the only ip i should see in netstat should be the VPN server NOT the peers as i shouldn't be connected to them directly? Am i leaking my IP outside the tunnel or should i expect to see bittorrent peer ip addresses in netstat when using the vpn? Thank you!
I'm new to this VPN thing and not much of a techie. I've installed AirVPN and it seems to be workong OK for the moment. I have a wireless network connection and I'm wondering about P2P downloading being anonymous under those circumstances. Is my IP privacy still intact with the wireless connection in use? Also, after I installed AirVPN yestreday it seemded to be working fine. Then when I started up my PC today I kept getting a message: "AirVPN Failed to connect". After trying a bunch of different servers and not being able to connect, I uninstalled and reinstalled and then it worked OK again. Hope I'm not going to have to go through that every day. Any thoughts?
