#68322 Control channel encryption / tls-crypt

Posted by go558a83nk on 07 January 2018 - 04:03 PM

I am also interested in this. My country is blocking OpenVPN via DPI. None of the AirVPN protocols works for me anymore even OpenVPN over SSL and SSH.


It has been written by Air staff that tls-crypt is coming soon.

#67775 How do I view blacklisted servers so that I can remove "undo" a serve...

Posted by go558a83nk on 19 December 2017 - 09:13 PM

well... yes, but then you get the entire list of all countries/servers.

unchecking returns to the shortlist lacking the accidentally-blacklisted item,

so I would repeat the question of the OP:

how to undo the accidental blacklisting?


Show all, then scroll to the one blacklisted and fix it.

#67198 Trusted sites to buy Bitcoin

It is not virtual currency.  It's cryptocurrency.

#66670 Cant connect with Asus DSL-AC68U

Posted by go558a83nk on 12 November 2017 - 09:09 PM

My suggestion is for you to use Asus Merlin firmware, where you get much more control over openvpn.  There you can specify what DNS you want to use.  My thoughts are you're having a DNS problem.

#65832 DNS issues when using AirVPN on Router

Posted by go558a83nk on 03 October 2017 - 04:12 PM

Thanks for writing back.  The directions for using AirVPN on my router, found elsewhere on this site and in these forums, specifically state to asisign the AirVPN private DNS server,, BEFORE activating the vpn on the router, and that's what I've always done.  I use AirVPN's config generator to make the variius config files my router uses for servers, so all of the IP info is contained therein...I'm not typing in IPs or URLs by hand at all, other than the original dns server, and even that is stored.


  Strangely enough, I just tried it again and it's working now. Who knows....maybe there was a glitch in the dns server over the last few days?



When you generate configs select the option on the bottom right that says resolved hosts in ovpn file.  That way you can connect without having to resolve the server name - it puts IP address in instead of name.

#65808 Using Airvpn, but still able to find my original location - help needed.

Posted by go558a83nk on 02 October 2017 - 10:43 PM

I am on my Windows 7 Laptop, and Using Chrome.

Connected to Airvpn, to any USA Server, let say in california..


I used IPleak.net to show me where I am and ensure no DNS Leak.  Works fine.


But when I go to 




as a test and say, allow location...to see where the atm boxe's are.  It does not show me in california...but shows me one near my actual location...


why would it do this?  should the VPN not kick and show my location as in california not where I currently am?



please advise



That's exactly what enabling geolocation in browser does.  But, you can spoof it with an add-on such as location guard.  Otherwise I suggest you disable that setting in your browser. :)

#65470 Ten new 1 Gbit/s servers available (US)

Posted by go558a83nk on 14 September 2017 - 01:19 AM

Tonight it's bad for me.  I tested 15 minutes ago and got good speed.  But, now it's less than 1mbit/s and I'm getting packet loss to the server (Ran) according to pfsense gateway monitoring.

#65438 Using Country VPN and Server VPN on 2 locations.

Posted by go558a83nk on 13 September 2017 - 01:02 AM

How do I use different server port? Is it in the config generator?


Yes, in the config generator advanced settings.


If you're using Merlin Asus firmware you should be able to just change the server port and save.  But, I think stock firmware gives you no options.

#65203 Comcast Shaping

Posted by go558a83nk on 31 August 2017 - 01:15 PM

I haven't followed all this but i read your thread on reddit.  I've been saying this re cogent for some time - that it's cogent's connection from Dallas VPN servers to Houston Comcast that's clogged, not Comcast themselves.


That's why the new Dallas servers are horrible during peak hours but the previous servers became quite nice because they started using Zayo to reach Comcast Houston.  (there was a point in the past that only Tonatiuh was good for me)

#65126 extremely slow downloads speed for torrents!

Posted by go558a83nk on 29 August 2017 - 01:40 AM

how long have you left torrents running?


what torrent client are you using?


do you have "utp"  turned on?


look at the images attached, i'm using transmission torrent client. takes roughly 2 hours to complete a 800mb file, without the vpn i can get this completed in 15mins

utp is turned off (now)


The reason I ask about time is because depending on the environment the system may write out the space needed on the hard drive as soon as the torrent is started.  Since the hard drive is in 100% use for a time the torrent speed drops to 0.  Once the hard drive is done writing torrent speed goes up.  But, it sounds like you've been very patient. ;)

If a protocol is not working you should send a note to AirVPN staff via the "contact us" page.

#64814 Network lock + third party firewalls?

Posted by go558a83nk on 16 August 2017 - 08:03 PM

Anyone?  :bye:


Please, if you could spare a minute to try if this works for you (custom routes with network lock enabled using the "Windows Filtering Platform"), that would be awesome!


Staff doesn't seem to care anymore. They haven't responded in weeks.



if I used Eddie I'd test for you.  Sorry.  :|

#64642 Staff: Traffic Obfuscation in Openvpn with obfsproxy?

Posted by go558a83nk on 06 August 2017 - 01:59 PM

Thank you zhang888. Well, using ssl/ssh with Openvpn in Airvpn doesn't avoid dpi, even browsing some websites to check if you are using Openvpn tells you that you are in fact using it. I know some other VPNs use socks5 to reduce these captchas and stay less exposed using bittorrent and browsers. About obfsproxy: isn't it easier if you already have it in Eddie?. I know it's not for everyone to use or need but could help in the cases you mention.



Those web sites are using MTU and 2 way ping not DPI.

#64444 Am I permitted to use your service with a dedicated server?

Posted by go558a83nk on 28 July 2017 - 04:16 PM

All, maybe you didn't see this tweet https://twitter.com/airvpn/status/865895863041785857 regarding a throughput record.  It is possible to max out a server but it'll only be 500mbit/s to the end user because the corresponding 500mbit/s inbound to the server counts against the 1gbit/s max.  Of course, some servers may actually have higher capabilities but 1gbit/s is what's guaranteed by the datacenter.  And, you're hitting against the maximum capabilities of the encryption unit.


The 4mbit/s guarantee by AirVPN is based on statistics of their overall system as I understand it.  It doesn't guarantee that all users of a given server will be able to get 4mbit/s always.  There's no way they could make that promise because every user is on a local system and using an ISP with many various problems of their own.  What it does guarantee is that if all customers were on at once AirVPN has the worldwide bandwidth to be able to offer all customers 4mbit/s.  But, it's up to the customer to pick the server with bandwidth available and up to the customer to have all problems on their end solved.
