Marco posted a question in VPN Windows SupportSo, in the TorGuard Windows client v0.3.78 I use the internet kill switch in the Network tab. I mainly connect via USB tethering and Wi-Fi so I have selected that two interfaces. And I have set "Enable disabled interfaces before connecting" to "yes" in the General tab. But everytime I try to connect a dialog box popup saying "One or more interfaces can not be activated properly. Please activate them manually before continuing." Up to this point the TorGuard tray icon remains red. When I click "OK" in the aforementioned dialog box the internet connects automatically without me having to do anything. Is this a bug? I have added an Imgur album here due to TorGuard's file size limit.
Sameer posted a question in VPN Windows SupportThis is more of an irritation, but it would be nice if something could be done about it. I have two TAP windows adapters. Is there anyway to bind Torguard to one of the adapters? I've noticed that Torguard uses both, which causes a problem, because the client seems to change the adapter settings from DHCP to static entries (both the IP and DNS). This is a bit of a nuisance because I need to go into the configuration and undo the changes and every time whenever I need to connect to another VPN. If I can set it to TAP #1, then I don't really care what it does to that interface, leaving the second one unaltered when I need to connect to other VPNs.
19807409 posted a question in VPN Router SupportCheck DNS requests guide (webarchive) In previous guide, I described how to get rid of your ISP or any other service (even TorGuard itself) hijacking your DNS (webarchive) In this topic I will show how you simply can find out what exactly is going on with port 53 which is default DNS port. Requierments HowTo/Wiki/Links Please read about tcpdump usage and how to on github, I will show here one exampe where I do check DNS requests on tun0 which is my openvpn tunnel connected to TorGuard. You can filter the command from the codebox below, but for simplicity, here it is: # tcpdump -vvv -i YOURINTERFACE port PORTNUMBER # Please lookup here for explanation of other options # - https://github.com/the-tcpdump-group/tcpdump tcpdump -vvv -i tun0 port 53 Logfile of test dump (it is long, that is why I'll put it into spoiler, for better overview) This is example of port 53 (DNS requests) when starting a stream on netflix US : (it will run until you stop it, you can do it by pressing CTRL+C on your keyboard) Results Here we received 26 packets and now we have clear DNS requests overview. What did we find? Let's take one line out of this log, this as example: 05:40:20.548149 IP (tos 0x0, ttl 64, id 59800, offset 0, flags [none], proto UDP (17), length 529) b.resolvers.Level3.net.53 > 10.35.0.6.25006: [udp sum ok] 38042 q: A? ipv4_1-lagg0-c158.1.ord001.ix.nflxvideo.net. 1/8/10 ipv4_1-lagg0-c158.1.ord001.ix.nflxvideo.net.

[3h48m10s] A 188.8.131.52 (501) Basicly, all lines do the same if you take closer look, when you press play button on your browser, netflix does contact these servers on port 53. Choosen line in more understandable format Please do not think that preventing netflix to make this check (dns request) will help you with their service, this is not enough. But if you need to redirect anything, then this is how to get required information or simply to log your network. If there are requests, I'll write you a gui for Luci in openwrt where you can make these tests or whatever could be the goal of the requested app. You are free to discuss about your (or my ) results, check your ISP's and if you are conform with anything, well, listening to people on internet is not good, trying it out and doing yourself is good. At the end, whatever you want to do, you can automate it, ie. redirecting all these requests to your StreamIP (lol , this would have worked until the last crackdown but not anymore). Other services still work with that and there are plenty of streaming services. However, its good to know what your network does, at least on important ports like D Hope my terrible english is good enough for writting guides, but sorry for typos or some strange expressions.
