Hi, I got a problem when connecting the AirVPN clinet through the Tor Browser Bundle 3.5.4 (Windows).

 

First, I got the following error message:

 

 

Attempting to establish TCP connection with [AF_INET]127.0.0.1:9150    
TCP connection established with [AF_INET]127.0.0.1:9150    
socks_handshake: server asked for username/login auth but we were not provided any credentials   
SIGTERM[soft,init_instance] received, process exiting    
Failed to start.
 

 

 

So I have replaced the port setting in the torrc-defaults file to:

 

 

SOCKSPort 127.0.0.1:9150 PreferSOCKSNoAuth
 

 

 

Now the error message looks like this:

 

 

Attempting to establish TCP connection with [AF_INET]127.0.0.1:9150    
TCP connection established with [AF_INET]127.0.0.1:9150    
recv_socks_reply: Socks proxy returned bad reply    
SIGTERM[soft,init_instance] received, process exiting    
Failed to start.
 

What should I do now?

OK, I got an answer from the support team, now it works. Thank you!

 

 Hello!

 Can you please make sure that you select a TCP port before clicking "Enter"?

 After you have selected a server, click the "Modes" tab and select a TCP port. Finally click "Enter" (do not go back to the servers menu because this will reset the client to UDP mode).

 Kind regards
 AirVPN Support Team
