Hi All, 

 

I connected a machine running a service to airvpn and I want to access to it just via Airvpn.

 

So, I added a port forwarding via Airvpn portal.

 

If I connect via https://ipaddress:port/nameoftheservice it opens properly.

 

if Use the DDNS name assigned to that port, I get a timeout.

 

the TCP test is positive and I waited a whole day for replication. 

 

there is anything that I am missing or doing wrong? thanks for your help!

Hello,

 

can you please check whether your *.airdns.org name resolves properly into the exit-IP address of the last VPN server you connected to? Also keep in mind that TTL is 1 hour.

 

Kind regards

Are you not forgetting the :port after the DDNS name? I did that once. :)


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 ;)

running an nslookup of the *.airdns.org address, is resolving in the ip address of the machine that I am using but not the one of the machine that is connected to airvpn and is actually running the service I want to reach.

 

I hope I am clear :)

am I doing something wrong or I did not understand how this works?

I did the RTFM phase since I normally stuck there as in the best of the stories :D
