  1. Hi. I have a specific question regarding port forwarding for the online game provider "Steam". They recommend that port 27015 (amongst several others) be port forwarded. Obviously, having 6M+ online players means that I can't grab this port from the AirVPN pool as it's long gone. So how do I go about this? This must be a common problem for providers with fixed client/server port requirements. FYI, my VPN runs from my router not my computer. Note, I have used AirVPN port forwarding very successfully for my torrent clients where the external port can be anything! Regards manrayer
  2. Hi and good morning to all, I am here because,like so many others i am at the end of my tether and need help and assistance from those of you in the know. I need to open ports for my Gameserver bypassing the VPN. I will keep my first description as short as possible of my current setup and anybody whom wishes to help may ask for further details, I have 2X instances of Pfsense running on a windows 2012 R2 server machine in Hyper-V, one is configured using this tut https://airvpn.org/topic/17444-how-to-set-up-pfsense-23-for-airvpn/ and the other handles the DHCP and Squid, my reasoning for this is, Squid does not play nice with Vpn's, i have tried everything to get them to work together but pfsense wants to use the default WAN when squid is installed so this was my workaround, i have tried others like pfBlockerNG but it does not have the level of control that Squid offers. Now to the complicated bit, for the purpose of this i will refer to Pfsense 1 VPN as "Firewall" and Pfsense 2 DHCP & Squid as "Proxy", The proxy has 2X LAN subnets which is the local LAN network and is hooked to Squid, and which is an isolated Lan i wish to use for a gameserver which has an Ip of 3.5 Then i have 2X wans static which is bridged to 2.1 on the firewall, and Vlan-Id=10 which connects to 4.1 Vlan-Id=10 on the Firewall, my is routed out this interface in order for it to be passed to the firewall and onto the WAN The Firewall is set up as described in the tut above and works as intended with the exception that the default LAN has changed to is now a Virtual LAN interface and is bridged with the Virtual WAN interface of the proxy which is 2.2, It also has a another LAN interface VLAN of Id =10 which is hooked up to the 4.2 of the proxy, this interface is to bypass the VPN and is routed out the WAN. Up until this point everything works as intended normal LAN clients can access the internet through the VPN, and my isolated Subnet can access the web through the WAN, i can also access any game servers i have running locally, and this is where the fun ends, for the life of me i cant get ports open to the outside world, it is strange to me that my Gameserver can access the web and servers can contact steam but beyond that, there seems to be no ports open, i have tried many things such as forwarding ports using nat out the various gateways. According to the various port checking sites i have visited all my ports are closed, even port 80 and i know this can not be because i can access the web just fine. I appreciate that i may have many extra steps to take with my currant configuration in order to get this to work, and i am very much looking forward to any help than can be given. Thanks in Advance.
  3. HI, It's been brought to my attention that Steam and Microsoft charge different prices depending on your geographic region. Thus it's possible to use a VPN to trick Steam, for example, into thinking you live in a region where prices are lower. However, in the Steam terms, you do agree not to use a VPN for this purpose. And your account could be permanently closed if you get caught. Question: What is the likelihood of getting caught? Specifically with respect to AirVPN.

  5. When using Torrents my Speed is only about ~ 0.5 - 1.2 mb/s over udp 443! But if i try to download a steam game or something else it maxed out my fully 160 mbps internet that´s about 19 mb/s! Specs : i7 6700K - Windows 10 - OpenVPN - Unitymedia Cable Internet 150/10
  6. this game on steam when I try to start it while connected to several AirVPN servers it goes to the main menu and says offline mode, check your internet connection. but if I try to start it over my plain connection it connects and logs in just fine. I've tried several servers but no luck tried with network lock enabled and disabled, and no change. I use a security suite which has its own firewall so the network lock feature doesn't work anyway. using UDP 443, I have not tried other ports/protocols. thanks for any tips
  7. Recently I tried to buy something via Steam while connected to Menkib, DE. Steam didn't let me purchase it. At first I suspected that something must be wrong with my VPN connection. But then I went through some help sites and read that Steam blocks purchases from VPN servers and anonymous services. While this is a nice and important feature it also means that some of AirVPN's servers are "blacklisted" and not able to purchase games. All other things like logging into Steam or downloading/playing games work.
  8. I have been using AirVPN for about 5 months and I have a problem I cannot resolve. I play Steam games on the internet, like Left4Dead, and the gaming servers now see me as being in the UK, and try hook me up to servers local to Europe, and not to my home area around Los Angeles. Befor I play, I always quit out of AirVPN. But it seems some setting is left behind in my setup that makes the game servers see me as being in the UK and not in the Los Angeles area. Anyone know how I can fix this? Thanks.
