When you use "route print" (without OpenVPN running), do you see any routing table entries involving the 10.5.x.x sub-net? If not, then this is not an issue.

 

I have one more suggestion. Add this to the OpenVPN config file:

route-nopull
route   0.0.0.0 128.0.0.0
route 128.0.0.0 128.0.0.0
route 10.5.0.1
dhcp-option DNS 10.5.0.1

This will set up routes exactly like the default, except that new entries for 127.0.0.1 (the "local host" address) will not be set up. These entries are not needed, since 127.0.0.1 is provided as a local interface internally by Windows (or any other OS). On my machine these entries do not cause an issue. But maybe they are on yours for some reason, so that you are losing connectivity to the Tore.exe SOCKS proxy interface.

 

I tried it, but nothing changed.

 

When I use "route print" I don't see any entry involving 10.5.x.x subnet, so I must deduct that this is not the problem.

 

I'm out of solutions then... sad...

 

Thanks.

 

You said that you can use OpenVPN by itself. Did you you try this with TCP on port 443? Or just UDP? Using TCP 443 without Tor will use the same 10.5.*.* subnet. And most of the routing table stuff will be the same. If this will not work, try another TCP port without Tor to see if any of them work:

If you find one that works, then try that over Tor.

Yes, I yet tried several tcp ports, that works without tor, but not with tor...

The AirVpn support surrended, saying me that they "have not a solution" for my problem, and that connection through proxies is not granted by airvpn...

I was able to re-create the issue on a VM running XP. Able to run Tor, VPN or Tor over VPN but not VPN over Tor.

I get the same results in the log. However, I only tried TCP 80 over Tor.

I did not have any problems with a Win 7 VM.

 

Was also able to re-create this on an XP machine (host).

Thanks for your info and for the time you spent on this.

I will try on a Win7 VM, then I will report the results.

Strange, I am hoping this is not the case. Perhaps they meant something else because that's not what they said a few years ago:

If they did say that, this is one of my dislikes/fears of this great provider growing to much:

Hello,

 

there is no contradiction. We confirm that we can't be held responsible for external proxies or any other service that we do not operate. The fact that when possible we try to provide support for external services, programs or we teach basic things unrelated to our service in private is a courtesy which goes well beyond the scope of any customer service and has nothing to do with the size and the growth rate of AirVPN. Under no circumstance a courtesy must be considered a duty.

 

Kind regards

I confirm that on a Win7 VM all works well.

So it's a Win XP only issue.

 

Thanks again!

It is a terrific courtesy that the staff provide. The service and product is the best.

Chatted with a few Tor users. They suggested looking at server logs which I told them do not exist.

Since we were able to re-create this on 2 VM's and a host, the hypothesis is it's an issue with the XP TCP/IP stack since that changed considerably with Vista.

I'm having this issue with Vista.

 

I suppose that could rule out the XP TCP/IP stack issue. However, I wouldn't rule it out completely until someone else can confirm.

Sorry, I do not have a Vista host or VM to try it out.

OpenVPN over Tor works for me on Vista using the scheme I described here:

 

https://airvpn.org/topic/10191-should-use-outboundbindaddress-for-openvpn-over-tor/#entry13215

 

So I have the tor.exe program bound explicitly to the IP address of the real IP adapter, as explained there. I have not tried it without this, since I think this is a dubious thing to do, for the reasons I gave in that post.

 

I have never tried OpenVP over Tor on XP. Maybe sometime if I have time to kill.
