Is it safe to allow this incoming connection (Mac/LittleSnitch)?


Best Answer zhang888, 09 July 2017 - 06:44 PM

Gacrux entry is 62.102.148.137, exit is 62.102.148.173, you need to allow access to the entry in order to be able to connect.

All the VPN servers have separate entry and exit-IP addresses, to prevent correlation attacks.

Hello fellow AirVPN users,

 

I just noticed that once in a while there are incoming connections to the openvpn process of the Eddie.app from an IP resembling (but not being the same as) the AirVPN exit IP:

Is it safe to allow this (and maybe all other incoming connections to Eddie's openvpn process?

 

Thx for your help!

Thank you zhang888 for clarification!

 

So in your opinion it would be safe to allow incoming connections for this IP on this port? Is this pretty much a connection that is related to AirVPN service? Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I'm not really a "networking guy". :-)

 

Thx!

Hello!
 

As zhang said, it's the entry and exit IPs of that AirVPN server.
