OPENVPN Watchdog|IP/DNS Leaks Prevention & Monitoring Software
OpenVPN Watch Dog is a windows based application to securely monitor for stable encryption of internet traffic and prevent exposure of real IP address thereby offering the benefits of encrypted connection to the internet with IP address anonymity. The program also detects DNS Leaks issues and DNS changer malware/DNS hijacking threats when using OpenVPN and will automatically disconnect your internet when DNS leaks and threats are detected. OpenVPN WatchDog is a program designed to monitor your OpenVPN connection and ensures that you do not blow up your anonymity when you lose your OpenVPN connection. When connected to an OpenVPN server and OpenVPN WatchDog is enabled, you can be sure that all traffic leaving your computer is fully encrypted. When your OpenVPN crashes or is compromised, OpenVPN WatchDog will automatically detect it, alert you of the danger and cut-off your internet access automatically. OpenVPN Watchdog is offered as a 'Software as a Service" (SaaS) which allows clients to detect and prevent security and DNS leak issues with OpenVPN connections using our hosted secure GeoIP servers.
In addition, the program has the capability to lock down your OpenVPN connection. After locking down your OpenVPN connection, network traffic will only exit through your OpenVPN connection, and no other network interfaces thereby preventing DNS leaks and IP leaks through your VPN connection. In the event a security issue is detected, a barking dog sound is produced and an alert is given. In addition, the program will automatically deactivate all internet connections on your computer. To enable internet connection again, simply click the “Enable All Network Connections” button to restore the internet access.
OPENVPN WATCHDOG FUNCTIONS
1. It is impossible for us to view your traffic or know what sites you visit. We do not interfere with your traffic and we cannot view your traffic during your OpenVPN session. The ONLY information the program can access is your real IP and the private IP which are being monitored in real time to ensure that your connection is secure.
2. The program do not keep any logs nor send any data from your computer to our GeoIP server. The GeoIP server is ONLY used to determine your real IP and the OpenVPN server IP before and during your connection respectively.
HOW IT WORKS
The service is offered as OpenVPN connection monitoring service using the watchdog program. To use the service, you have to install the program and run the OpenVPN WatchDog before initiating connection to your OpenVPN server. The program will automatically detect your real connection IP and location of your IP by making a secure outbound connection to our GeoIP server. Your real IP is then stored internally on your computer and then starts monitoring your connection IP every second after you start the OpenVPN session ito make sure that your real IP is never exposed. In addition, the program ensures that all traffic leaving your computer is fully encrypted and that all DNS queries are routed through the DNS servers pushed to the client by the OpenVPN server by locking down your OpenVPN connection thereby making sure that network traffic will only exit through your OpenVPN connection, and not through other network interfaces.
In the event a security issue is detected, a barking dog sound is produced and an alert is given. In addition, the program will automatically deactivate all internet connections on your computer. To enable internet connection again, simply click the “Enable All Network Connections” button to restore the internet access.The program functionality is based on the ipconfig and tracert commands to ensure that the private IP and the Default Gateway assigned to the TUN Virtual Interface belongs to the remote LAN you are connected thereby ensuring that the internet traffic is actually routed across the VPN and hence encrypted.
