If you use a non AirVPN server with Eddie for some reason it doesn't show the exit IP only entry, shouldn't it be able to tell exit when it checks geo location?

In general this can imply that such VPN uses the same IP address both as entry and exit. It's an awful practice when IP addresses are shared (an essential requisite to have a better anonymity layer) and port forwarding is supported: data exchange with nodes in the same VPN will occur outside the tunnel exposing the real IP address to each other. A lot of correlation attacks can therefore be successfully achieved.

 

Kind regards

I'm aware it uses same IP address, I just wonder why you can't make it show it on exit IP since else the header is just empty and looks weird, all I ask is it being looked into.
