On the result page of on https://ipleak.net there is a referens to "AirVPN Exit Node".

  1. What is an "AirVPN Exit Node"?
  2. Why does ipleak.net check for "AirVPN Exit Node", is it a security/privacy issue in some way?
  3. Who becomes an "AirVPN Exit Node"? And under which circumstances could/will this happen?
  4. What is the result/impact/downside of being an "AirVPN Exit Node"? Will it limit functionality/access or anything else that would be available otherwise?
  5. If being an "AirVPN Exit Node" is a "bad" thing, can it then be avoided?
  6. is there any documentation available on "AirVPN Exit Node"?

An exit node is simply the outgoing IP address of any particular AirVPN server. It isn't a part of any other company. It is the IP address that any site you connect to sees rather than the your real IP address which is a main objective of any such server. All Air's servers have just a single entry IP and a single (but different) exit IP, which further protects your connections.

It says AirVPN exit node because ipleak is run by AirVPN they know their own server IPs.

A numbered list! YES! It's a little silly of me to answer all of them. So here it comes. :D

  1. As Mr. TobysNose and Ms. Embers wrote, it's just an AirVPN server.
  2. You can see it as an indicator whether you are connected to AirVPN.
  3. Since it's an AirVPN server, some IPs can become exits. :)
  4. IPs which are not exits are no AirVPN IPs and should be avoided ;) haha
  5. It's not bad. :P
  6. That's a difficult one.......... Oh, wait. No, it isn't. :)

Always remember:
There's a guide to AirVPN,

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here,
running TOR exits is discouraged,

using spoilers for your logs helps us read your thread.

~ Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. ~

Instead of writing me a personal mail, consider contacting me via XMPP at gigan3rd@xmpp.airvpn.org or join the lounge@conference.xmpp.airvpn.org. I might read the mail too late whereas I'm always available on XMPP ;)

On my daily visit to ipleak.net today I noticed two changes to my normal results, and I'm wondering why this happened as I haven't changed any settings on my computer -- 1. The box for Your IP Addresses and the one for DNS Address Detection have always shown the same result as each other, but today the IP Address one is the same as usual, while the DNS Address Detection one only contains about two dozen yellow triangles and a message when I hover the cursor over it - NO IP. Internal Error. 2. In the IP Details section the Tor Exit Node and the AirVPN Exit node have always shown the same result - red circles and No for both - but today the Tor one is still red/No and the AirVPN one is green/Yes. I'm wondering what the reasons are for this sudden difference because as I say I have changed any settings. Can anyone help me understand, please.
