AirVPN Client - Eddie - Beta testing phase

Recommended Posts



Trying out the Eddie Linux client on a new 14.04 bare metal OS.


[ I know that 14.04 has a "bug" with pre-config VPN settings.  I tried it anyway and confirm its still not working (no surprise just confirming the bug has not been fixed yet).]


Now will somebody please tell me how to get around an issue I am having with the client.  Its on my end.


Scenario:  I downloaded Eddie using another machine and burned it to a CDR.  Then I fired up the 14.04 OS and copied the client to the desktop of 14.04.  Clicked on it and installed it.  I watched it install in the progress bar.  Seemed to go fine.  I can open Accessories and I see the AirVpn icon.  When I click on it a full screen appears with a launch button.  I click on LAUNCH and then nothing happens.  It just goes to full desktop view and I see nothing.


1. Do I need to change permission or go root, etc....?  If so how on the gui icon?


2. Should I run this from terminal and if so what commands are recommended?


3. Lastly, assuming I resolve this connection issue -------------- > is there anything in the client that will interfere with my still using a ufw firewall ruleset just to be sure?  I lock ufw down to: general block in and out, allow only the air entry IP, traffic only allow tun.  Not complex but its solid and never has leaked.

Feature request:


1.  I would like the ability to stop AirVPN from connecting to a server mid-connection.  It seems now that once you press connect, the client will attempt to connect to a server and nothing will stop it short of terminating the application.


2.  On the overview tab, the port you are connected to does not show.  Could this be added?

The problem is here:



5/12/2014 - 9:04 AM    OpenVPN > resolvconf: Error: /etc/resolv.conf must be a symlink


It's not Eddie's problem, see here for a quick fix: http://askubuntu.com/a/172157


Kind regards

I tried the askubuntu link and all I could get is this (didn't work) :


update-rc.d: warning: resolvconf stop runlevel arguments (none) do not match LSB Default-Stop values (0 6)


I think my version of Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid is too old.  Guess I need to upgrade.  Thanks for the assistance.





Anyone with a suggestion of how I can fix this short of upgrading (which seems to have it's own issues) ?

Excellent, I've dreamed of a Linux client for AirVPN. I'm in Archlinux and everything is working great. There are great

features here and now I don't have to download any config files anymore

Any instructions on how to compile the client from the github source? My system is armhf so the regular x32/x64 builds are not compatible.
