  5. One more year for me! Thanks to AirVPN Team
  6. Could you please consider keeping everyone more up-to-date about such things? Because right now I can get behind the fact that you are making promises and mentioning deadlines and the deadlines tend to run out too often. Now, I'm not sure if you posted such updates on Twitter or something but the forums are the central plaza of the community and so, figuratively, the notice board there should be updated because most of the people pass it. I do not share your view of software development here, or the hubris about how perfect all your software is. If you've convinced yourself of that, my condolences, this is one way to strangle innovation and ideas. Keeping your software up-to-date is not proof of your lack of planning before and during development. On the contrary, actually: it shows you care. You can always add new features or improve on the old. E.g., Make the log output markable and saveable, let us filter it by errors, warnings or words. Or just revamp the whole way of config file handling (because it still doesn't work with multiple remote directives, and the worst thing, it doesn't tell you so). No, your software is not perfect. Right now it simply does what it's designed to do. But don't just look at the diamond, prevent others from being cut by its rough edges also. And, by the way, I've noticed this with all the software you write: Your git repositories are lacking commits. True commits. Telling what is changed, one change, issue or pull/merge request at a time. The only things there are version commits which should've been release tags instead. It's just soo unfortunate, soo many git features completely unused and even made impossible, like regression testing via git-bisect. It's not how I watched other people use git, and it's not how I learned using it to keep track of big software projects like a game engine or the most basic things like personal dotfiles in /home. I truly hope you are using your local git repos for this and simply rebase everything if you're ready for release but then I don't understand why the rebase in the first place. Please think about all of that, and actually try to understand why others and me wrote this instead of thinking about how to defend yourself from it. No one was attacked here today.
  7. I've just finished looking at that - I ran an experiment, using the CLI version of speedtest.net, and identical versions of OpenVPN/Hummingbird and my *.ovpn AirVPN configuration file. I was surprised to find that the results I detailed above I can reproduce running directly from my barebones 'router' (which is running Intel Celeron J1900), but when I run the same on my desktop (which is running Intel Core i7-4771) the results over the VPN are a magnitude of 3-4 times faster. Is OpenVPN/Hummingbird really so dependent on CPU capacity, do you think, or are there other things I should be looking at? Is there any way I can tweak the J1900 configuration? Both my 'router' and my desktop are running Ubuntu 20.04.1, the 'router' is running the server version while the desktop is running the desktop version.
  8. Hello! On a 1 Gbit/s fiber line in Italy which does not suffer traffic shaping we record about 330 Mbit/s with Hummingbird and an Intel i7 (in a Fedora 32 system), with AES-256-GCM on Data Channel and connections to Belgium and the Netherlands servers. Hummingbird uses OpenVPN3 linked against mbedTLS, but we record same performance with OpenVPN 2 linked against OpenSSL. Similar, consistent speeds are recorded by many users. Consider that we have in particular a couple of customers who connect only from dedicated servers and keep their speed (with OpenVPN 2 or 3) constantly at 480 Mbit/s (i.e. 960 Mbit/s on the server). What are your system, CPU, OS? Are you sure that your ISP does not enforce traffic shaping and that your CPU is not the bottleneck? Have you tested several servers to maximize likelihood of good peering between your ISP and our transit providers? Kind regards
  9. Your money speaks, if you don't like where air is at, then take your money else get a new vpn. There's a few things that Air has supported that I don't agree with but they provide me with plenty of options that I want and therefore I stick with them. When i feel they've gone awol for me to support,I will kindly asks them for a refund and go somewhere else.
  10. If you look closely into that repository, you will see the commits are actually the releases. So the code changes will be seen when 2.19.5 is pushed, along with all the other bug fixes and feature additions.
  11. No they get added to what you have
  12. Hummingbird is based on OpenVPN 3 which did not reach feature parity with OpenVPN 2 yet, so some options are ignored. Your observation regarding Hummingbird performance further suggests that there is a problem with OpenVPN over fiber, but I can't imagine at all what it could be.
  13. Same question here! Also, remaining days on an already existing subscription don't go lost I suppose? And happy Halloween!!
  14. I don't see you as an absolute beginner if you pulled all that off while using certain expressions normally unknown to beginners to describe it. Did I understand it right that you want to connect to your home network from the outside so that you can use the internet via AirVPN? Why don't you use AirVPN directly instead?
  15. Great. Two days after I ordered a plan...
  16. The default route actually has got a reasonably high metric, which is 100. So if you want to route something outside of the tunnel, you specify the metric to be 99 or lower. See? Here OpenVPN adds a route to the OpenVPN server, and the metric is 1 because we want this to be used under all circumstances. So add your routes with a metric between 2 and 99.
  17. @Donald Trump Hello and thank you for your feedback! The "new software" has suffered delays (a few months anyway, it's not catastrophic) due to a more ambitious development and architecture. Internal alpha testing (for Linux x86-64) has been completed successfully. A first beta version will see the light very soon, a matter of days. Eddie Android edition does not need an update, but its development will be re-opened to adjust some features. The fact is that Eddie Android edition is perfectly compatible. Eddie runs just fine in Android 10, so we have considered different priorities. Due to latest changes of Google requirements and above all thanks to excellent design, Eddie Android edition is already Android 10 compliant. We do not share your development cycle belief. For example, Eddie Android was so nicely planned that, so far, nobody has found any critical or serious problem and it runs perfectly in Android 10. We think that the fact that a software must be updated every other month or so is only an ill consequence of nowadays bad practices, specifically poor or non existent planning before development, and poor or non-existing development before coding. Eddie Android and desktop editions together are routinely used successfully in more than 70000 machines on AirVPN (and a few thousand toward third party VPNs, from a quick calculation based on feedback), and it's quite hard to have a 100% compatibility with any setup of any system. Even if it failed in 0.1% of cases, it would mean anyway 70 unsatisfied users per day. If you face any technical issue please open a ticket, or write in the proper thread. Wireguard runs just fine in our servers, but we don't consider the whole system ready for production. Wireguard, when it is meant to be used with "anonymity purposes" (a purpose which Wireguard was not designed for), poses serious challenges which need to be addressed carefully. We could not care less about market hype, therefore we will not trade our ten years reputation to momentarily ride the gravy train. Kind regards
  18. There are some good guides for windows and Linux (I'm using centos) if you google airvpn + stunnel + OpenVPN. Once you get over the initial config shock it's not too bad in operation.
  19. Excellent! Where can I view the code changes? Is there a branch/clone/PR yet?
  20. Interestingly, if the order is first and second, the order is restored correctly. Eddie seemingly only swaps them when the order is first and second. It's almost as if the list gets sorted before/during restore.
  21. I've given Hummingbird a go, and this time I was able to use it successfully - it created a TUN interface seamlessly and my 'router' worked as expected. Interestingly, before it worked, it made the following complaints about the parameters I had changed in my AirVPN-created ovpn file: Error: eval config error: ERR_PROFILE_OPTION: option_error: mssfix: parse/range issue OpenVPN3 CONNECT ERROR: option_error: sorry, 'fragment' directive is not supported, nor is connecting to a server that uses 'fragment' directive TUN Error: tun_prop_error: tun_builder_set_mtu failed taking these three parameters out of the ovpn file (mssfix, fragment, and tun-mtu) enabled Hummingbird to run correctly. However, I was greatly disappointed with the speed performance - running through Hummingbird gave me speeds which were less than half of those I obtained using the v.2.4.7 of OpenVPN, as you can see in the attached files. Maximum speeds for AirVPN dropped from 82Mbps to 37Mbps (907Mbps with AirVPN unplugged for comparison).
  22. How long will this campaign take? I have lower credit card limit currently, will correct this, as soon as I can.
  23. Anyone know how to set up a Raspberry Pi to give a double hop VPN? I've set PiVPN up and can get secure encryption back to my home network, but my traffic leaves the home network without VPN/Unencrypted. I just can't get my head around how would set it up. PS I need it to be easy. I'm an absolute beginner. I have a Netgear DM200 Modem in router mode connected through an apple time machine, then through a Netgear 8 way unmanaged switch, then to 5 wired connections to Airport Extremes in different rooms. All of the Apple products are set in Bridge Mode. My Raspberry Pi 4 is running the full install of Raspberry OS, has Netalk installed and shares a hard drive to my other devices through the USB 3.0 connection. I currently have piVPN installed with Wireguard, and its configured to work with PiHole. I have set my DNS on the Netgear DM200 to the local IP address of the Pi. The Netgear Router is set up as a DHCP Server and it gives a reserved local IP address to the RaspPi. Any help/advice appreciated!!!!
  24. Thank you! Added two more years to my sub!
  25. Having been a supporter for AirVPN for a number of years, it is becoming harder to support them for a number of reasons: 1: In their 10th birthday celebrations thread they said: It's now almost November, and this "new software" was never mentioned again. 2: Eddie Android needs to be updated to target Android 10 in line with Google's requirements. AirVPN staff said here: November is on Sunday, where is the latest version to comply with these requirements? 3: I am getting more and more errors in Eddie, some of which say to contact the staff. Normally when I resume from hibernation/sleep, or just away for a few hours, the main UI crashes. However reporting issues is a waste of time since they're never fixed. It took over 500 days for a new Eddie stable release, far, far too long when there are issues that need fixing. 4: Where is Wireguard beta/early trials? The website has graphics/code for Wireguard so it's clearly coming at some point, but the staff are being Slow at rolling it out, and whether it's fully secure or not, the market is shifting towards WG as a means of using a VPN which is "good enough" for most people. AirVPN risk losing an edge here in favor of what appears to be a more appealing alternative to OpenVPN 5: AirVPN seem to "pump and dump" their clients. New versions/software are released and never updated for months. 500 days between Eddie desktop stable releases, over 1 year since Android eddie release with no updates and many months between updates for Hummingbird. This is not an acceptable software development practice. All software needs updating every now and then as the platforms themselves are constantly changing (Windows/Android/Linux distros/kernel etc). The staff have been far too quiet the last few months, these forums have depleted in life and are not as active. Software development is non-existent in the public domain. We're promised new software, updates and changes that never happen and the Staff have proven in their public statements their word is not to be trusted (only those I quoted above which are made by staff in public) Yet, when you want to make factual information public, there is the threat of you being silenced and banned from the forums. What's going on with AirVPN? The service remains one of the best on the market. The software (for the most part) is incredibly reliable and stable, yet, more updates are required if nothing else than to update internal libraries every so often. Please can we have some answers here? Thank you.
  26. Thanks. Yes I'm using script-security 2 and up and down scripts to route the VPN locally to a device, proxys listen to. But how can I add routes to bypass the default IPv6 route with up-scripts ? Lets say my Inet device is wan0 and its connected to a router with and fe80::d63f:cbff:fe8a:xxxx In the default/route vpn logs I see this : add_route_ipv6(2001:ac8:20:2a:fa58:8bc5:ea41:6ecc/128 -> fe80::d63f:cbff:fe8a:xxxx metric 1) dev wan0 /sbin/ip -6 route add 2001:ac8:20:2a:fa58:8bc5:ea41:6ecc/128 dev wan0 via fe80::d63f:cbff:fe8a:xxxx metric 1 Do I need the same for the second tunnel ?
  27. Renewed for three years. Thank you!
