Tor entry guard never changes with OpenVPN 2.13.6

Tor

The Tor guard circuit issue was fixed in the latest beta version of Eddie and confirmed to work.
Now Eddie sends a NEWNYM signal to Tor, which creates a new circuit.
That should end the little conspiracy theory here ;) Go to the full post

According toTails support

 

VPNs [...] basically introduce either a permanent entry guard (if the VPN is set up before Tor) or a permanent exit node (if the VPN is accessed through Tor).

 

This is the exact situation since I updated OpenVPN to 2.13.6

 

Is the fixed Tor entry guard AirVPN sponsored?

Sponsored AirVPN guard nodes is the best conspiracy theory of the month, beyond any imagination :)

In fact most parts of Eddie are not involved directly in the underline subsystem of Tor, but that might change in

the future, since Tor had some changes recently that might worth to take in to account in the next releases.

Stay tuned for some official announcements when this might become available.

I am glad the hypothesis hits the comic relief department. Since none of the Air VPN sponsored Tor exit relay nodes under control of John Ricketts / Quintex can be listed, speculation runs wild!

 

Are those nodes getting repurposed > :)
