AirVPN and Transmission
haydenrivers posted a topic in Troubleshooting and ProblemsI am trying to setup AirVPN with Transmission on macOS Sierra. What do I need to do to set this up correctly? 1 - Do I need to setup a Kill Switch? If so, how do you do this? 2 - Do I need to do some type of port forwarding inside of Transmission? Or do I need to do something here? - https://airvpn.org/ports thanks!
Transmission with AirVPN
watson.ai posted a topic in Troubleshooting and ProblemsHi there! I'm new to AirVPN, and I've been using it at college on my Mac for the last month or so with great success. I'm trying to torrent with the Transmission client, and it's not working. According to Preferences, the default Listening Port (51413) is closed. My understanding after a little research is that colleges keep their networks locked pretty tight and tend to close off all unnecessary ports (please correct me if I'm wrong), so it would only make sense that after scanning all of the ports on the network though a web service, there isn't a single one open (I only scanned up through 2048). However, when I tried rescanning connected to the VPN, ports 88 and 89 were open (again, only ones I saw below 2048). I briefly tried port 88 in Transmission, which verified it was open, and did begin receiving the torrent I was trying. My question is this: is it safe to use either port 88 or 89 in this manner?
Hi all. I just signed up for service and am a newbie when it comes to this stuff. I am using Debian jessie, and have successfully installed the AirVPN client. How do I set up my torrent client (Transmission) and my browser to utilize AirVPN's services? Thanks!
Hi there, I am fairly new to Linux and also to AirVPN. I am using the AirVPN client on 64 bit Linux Mate, running Transmission on my machine trying to set up remote access so I can view the web interface remotely. I have a DNS running on my Raspberry Pi so I am attempting to use my domain (for example 2Girls1CPU.mooo.com:9091) to access the web UI. I have tested the DNS, through port 22 to SSH into my raspberry pi to confirm that it is working. Here is what I have tried: Initially I set up remote access in Transmission. I had the port as 9091, with authentication and no whitelist of IP addresses. Then I went into AirVPN client area and set up a port forwarding rule. Obviously 9091 was taken, so I just created a random port, forwarded through TCP (I've tried UDP, as well as both TCP and UDP). Then I took that random port, say 27364 and entered it into the remote access settings in Transmission. I also went into my port forwarding rules in my router and added a rule to forward 27364 to my Laptop running AirVPN and Transmission (say 192.168.1.43). External and internal port both the same obviously. Now with this setup, I would assume when I try to access port 27364 (with 2Girls1CPU.mooo.com:27364) - my VPN would forward that to my router port 27364, which would then forward to 192.168.1.43:27364. I may be completely wrong as I do not have a solid understanding of networking and port forwarding, but this setup did not work. One thing that confused me was under the port forwarding rules on AirVPN client area, it says "Forwarded to 10.x.x.x". Why is this being forwarded to an IP with a 10. ip range? Should it not be forwarded to my internal IP? Or how exactly does that work? I'm probably missing something here, but I just can't work it out. I'm not sure how the port forwarding within AirVPN works. If anyone could give me some insight it would be greatly appreciated. One more thing I am wondering - how safe is it to have a port forwarded like I am attempting while using AirVPN? Is there any potential for leaks? Thanks! -2Girls1CPU
Port Forwarding on Linux Mint 17
Blackout STi posted a topic in Troubleshooting and ProblemsHi guys! So I am attempting to setup my Transmission bittorrent client with Transdrone (Transdroid) app on Android. I want to be able to use this android remote app to connect to my desktop (where Transmission is running) while I am connected to this VPN. So I: 1) Connected to a server (say Server A). 2) Configured port forwarding on AirVPN's site (AirVPN > Client Area > Forwarded ports). Let's say I forwarded port 7712 and 7713. 3) Logged into Transmission and set port 7712 as the Incoming port (Transmission > Preferences > Network) and made sure 'Pick a random port at startup' was unchecked. 4) Allowed remote access (HTTP) from port 7713 and configured username/password authentication. Made sure 'Only allow these IP addresses' was unchecked. 5) Then set my firewall to allow incoming connections from port 7712 and 7713 (TCP). * I DID NOT log into my router and configure port forwarding for these ports (or any for that matter). When I hit the 'Test Port' button (Transmission > Network) to test port 7712, it says 'Port is OPEN'. Cool. ----- So what is my post about? Well there are some instructions on this page that confuse the heck outta me: https://airvpn.org/faq/p2p/ I do not understand what is being communicated here... "If you forward a port for a p2p torrent client, do NOT remap it to a different local port and make sure that the torrent client port matches the remotely forwarded port number" - What is meant by "do not remap it to a different local port"? Am I supposed to log into my router and setup port forwarding for port 7712 & 7713? "do NOT forward on your router the same ports you use on your Bittorrent or eMule client (or any other listening service) while connected to the VPN" - Doesn't this contradict the previous instruction? What is the correct way to configure port forwarding so that my P2P client will work with my android remote app? (and seed)
