    Why does it make these IP calls? What does “failed” mean?

    Is it possible to know why a certain device makes these ip calls? I know who makes them, but now i want know WHY. Thanks.

    “Failed” means the client failed to connect to the destination IP on the specified port. Either the IP address is not active or the port is not open.

    Most likely these are not from web browsing. Maybe BT or eMule?

    Not File sharing, i’m not using them. Can you say me a way for to know the “source” of these ip calls? What program is causing all this? And especially, why?

    If you are on Windows, open a command prompt.

    Enter “netstat -on” to display current network connections. The last column will be the owning process id.

    Then, enter “tasklist” to find the process name.

    This is completally another thing, look here:

    I never understood this: If the domain is a literal ip address, why the reson is “Proxy/VPN”?

    I have a VPN on my android smarphone, and if I want it to work i must disable in the access control “Proxy/VPN”, but, at the same time, i have to disable “Literal IP addresses” too, but the reason of the block is only “Proxy/VPN”.

    I have noticed this behavior ever since I bought your router, on many other occasions, but now I want to understand the reason for this behavior.

    I don’t have the knowledge to understand this, or it can be a bug?

    @casino When you block Proxy/VPN, the router automatically blocks literal IP addresses for encrypted traffic. Because the router cannot look inside the encrypted traffic to see if the connection is actually being used as a proxy, it assumes that the connection might be a proxy and blocks it.

    On your android, download this app:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=dns.hosts.server.change

    set a dns of your choice and create a VPN.

    With “Proxy,VPN,TOR” and “Literal IP Addresses” disabled, pcwrt can’t establish a connection.

    Try: Just send a simple whatsapp message and you will se that pcwrt can’t send it, or, sometimes, will send it after 15, 20 minutes.

    With the data mobile, i have no problem. I tested it on Android 9.

    @casino The host changer app has no effect at all. It just changes the DNS server IP addresses on your phone, plus the option to add your own host name to IP address mappings. This is no different from changing the DNS server IP address on your PC from “Automatic” to 8.8.8.8 (for example). Something else is happening on your phone.

    Does that app work with you? Were you able to safely send messages via whatsapp with its VPN turned on?

    Because with pcWRT i can’t, but with the data mobile yes.

    @casino When the app was running, everything worked the same as if the app was not used at all. That’s the expected behavior, because it’s a DNS changer.
