Hello,

 

I am currently connected to the AirVPN Server Taygeta.

On ipleak.net it says

 

TOR Exit Node: Yes

AirVPN Exit Node: Yes.

 

and on check.torproject.org it also says that I am connected to TOR.

 

But I am not using TOR.

I am only connected to AirVPN Taygeta.

 

Does someone know why it says, that I am connected to TOR without using TOR?

Hello!

 

ipleak.net compares the IP address against a list of TOR exit-nodes by TOR Project. Now, some IP addresses might be included in the TOR exit-nodes list by mistake, because some Air customer might be running TOR exit-nodes from behind VPN servers.

 

This does not mean that you're inside the TOR network. Since this kind of information can be misleading (not for ipleak maintainers' responsibility, but for the limitations on how the TOR exit-nodes lists are necessarily compiled), we'll think whether to cut it out of the web site.

 

Kind regards
