#77461 Setting IPs to go outside of VPN (what I'm doing wrong)?

Posted by go558a83nk on 11 September 2018 - 05:30 PM

If you feel you're seeing a bug then create a support ticket. :)

#77452 Trying to connect to a Gen2 Server with IPv4

Posted by go558a83nk on 11 September 2018 - 12:58 PM

OK, that's the entry IP 3, tls-crypt, so you need to change tls key usage mode to authentication and encryption.


Also, I assume you put the tls key from this new config in the proper field, not the other key from a tls-auth config?

Sorry you're getting no help on this.  I don't use the app so I'm unfamiliar with its details and behaviors.  Otherwise I'd help.

#77040 OpenVPN Connect iOS & tls-crypt

Posted by go558a83nk on 27 August 2018 - 03:26 PM

Use entry IP 3 or 4 in your config generator choices.


P.S. tls-crypt was working prior to this update for openvpn connect on iOS.

#76689 OpenVPN Compression VulnerabilitOpeny

Posted by go558a83nk on 14 August 2018 - 09:31 PM

I download the ovpn files via the config generator, at present all have "comp-lzo no" in them when choosing the linux versions. ;)


Yeah, I see that now.   But, I know I've seen Staff comment on this topic in the past and I'm just repeating what they said to the best my memory serves me.  Shrug.  I'll look for the past discussion.




That's one of the threads I was thinking of.  Looks like I remembered wrong. comp-lzo no must be specified or else there might be connection failure on some devices.

#76676 OpenVPN Compression VulnerabilitOpeny

Posted by go558a83nk on 14 August 2018 - 02:41 PM

comp-lzo is in configs because some devices don't seem to work with "comp-lzo no" in the config.  But, AirVPN servers push a message that includes "comp-lzo no", which disables compression.

#76538 Five new 1 Gbit/s servers available (US)

I'd say they're probably more upset about any problems than we are and are too busy to repeat in here what's already shown on the status page. :)

#76448 Announcement for Eddie Windows edition users

Posted by go558a83nk on 04 August 2018 - 02:09 AM

Interesting I'm on an even older version 2.8.8 - because frankly if it ain't broke don't fix it. Namely I had to go though some hell years back to get tunnel adapter driver version right for any decent throughput performance on winsrv2k8r2 in vm or out, got everything just right finally using older version tap and so was paranoid about the 2.10.x+ installers trying to automatically install a new one - or so I read at the time, along with auto enabling all this network lock stuff I don't need\want by default that I forever pushed off touching anything.  Anyway, I've had no problems of late with 2.8.8 that the post is about. 


That said I got the popup message today via the software that I should upgrade, and it's been on my mind anyway (was waiting for 2.16. with ip6 to get stable\mature before screwing with it) but will attempt to move to 2.15.x give the nudge from air and 2.0 infrastructure rolling out.  Can anyone anwser off hand if 2.15.x it's going to try to install the newer tap driver and turn on network lock by default or are those options during\before install now in 2.15.x?  Guess I should go find that old thread thread with the 9.something.2 and .3 driver before starting so I have it as a backup, cause I'm nearly positve the latest will be problematic - for me.



Network lock will not run at installation and by default does not run when the app is started.  (you can enable it to run at app startup if you wanted to do so)  So, you should be happy with that.


I haven't heard much complaining of tap drivers for a while now so the newest one may be OK???  Somebody else will have to answer that specific question.

html5 geolocation.  turn it off, or use location guard (extension) with fixed location in the area of the VPN server.

ipleak.net seems to not know what to do with these new servers.



#76271 Using the .ovpn conf file on linux lead to DNS LEAK!

Posted by go558a83nk on 31 July 2018 - 12:36 PM

I would prefer to stick to the network-manager-openvpn since it's much more tested and widely used than your client.

So, is there a solution to prevent this DNS issue with it?


Sigh.  Did you even read what they wrote to you?  Quote from their reply "You would need a script to modify your resolv.conf if network-manager-openvpn can't do that by accepting the DNS push". 


There is your answer.


Not everything will be done for you in life.  Sometimes you must put in a little effort.

#75903 Request - Choose Route

Posted by go558a83nk on 21 July 2018 - 03:28 AM

Is it possible with any AirVPN location that an option similar to https://network.feral.io/reroute or http://speedtest.seedboxes.cc/ could be offered to users?


(The Seedboxes.cc site doesn't show it right away but if you test your speed you'll be offered the choice of which network to use based on the speed tests.)


I'm thinking "no" but I figured I'd ask and at least generate some discussion.

#75414 Thats a first. Someone really busy today?

Posted by go558a83nk on 04 July 2018 - 06:13 PM

I was connected to another AirVPN server the other day and rarbg was telling me my IP was banned.  It wouldn't let me post comments to torrents, or vote on comments, or look past page 2 of the list of torrents.


But, I had no problems downloading torrent files.


I went to another AirVPN server and had no problems.  Obviously there are users of AirVPN who are morons and cause problems for the rest of us.

#73782 Everything works great except for accessing your site. (airvpn.org)

Posted by go558a83nk on 02 June 2018 - 02:56 PM

I agree.  airpvn.org is one of the slowest loading web sites I've ever used when I have to login.  It's not bad when everything is cached.
