Eddie 2.9 Experimental available

Recommended Posts

I am experiencing the same "driver installation failed" error.  Unfortunately, I no longer have the 2.9 installer.  Is that available anywhere?

@Staff

Thanks for the info.

 

I confirm Network Lock is now working correctly.

 

The tunnel driver installed successfully for me on Win7 32bit using the built-in Administrator account.

Hello!

 

Could those who experience tun/tap driver installation problems with 2.9.1 publish Eddie logs? Especially all lines starting with "OpenVPN Driver ..." and "Tunnel driver will be upgraded ...". Thank you!

 

Kind regards

New version 2.9.2.

Re-download and re-install the experimental version.

 

The newest version shows 2.9.2 in About.

 

Changelog

  • [bugfix] OpenVPN Driver Installation failure that occurs on Windows 8 and Windows 10
  • [new] New advanced option Remove the default gateway route (Only Windows and Linux)
About the new option,

It removes the default route 0.0.0.0 when the VPN connection is established, and restores it at disconnection. If Eddie crashes or is killed [ungracefully], when relaunched it recovers automatically.

Under Windows, if activated this option resolves the WebRTC leak.

Please use with care, it's an experimental feature.

Just gone to Enter > Linux > RPM for Fedora 64 bit > experimental to grab v2.9.2. Tried to install the RPM and it says cannot install the software based on the openvpn service, version 2.8.0. Are the file versions correct on the server? It's impossible to tell from the filename because it's always the same. Thanks.

 

EDIT: Never mind, all fixed now.

Hello!

 

There was a wrong 2.8 version inside the "2.9" RPM archive, we apologize for the issue. It has been fixed, please re-download.

Anyway, dpkg (in general .deb installers) has no problems in packages re-installation even if the package is the same version of the one already installed, while rpm may refuse to re-install. This may be a problem for you when we release the final 2.9: if so, try with --force

 

Kind regards

Thanks as ever for the supreme customer service. You're the only VPN which not only actively engages with customers but keeps everything FOSS and actively develops. What other VPN releases beta software and bugfixes in REAL TIME with customers? Absolutely awesome as always guys, keep it up because this kind of attitude is what keeps me paying you money!

Thanks!

 

News for our beta testers: a major step in Eddie development will be the support of ANY ovpn configuration, with automatic import of ovpn configuration files of our VPN service competitors. Some features depend on server-side software (DNS/Route checking and SSH/SSL tunnel for example), but major features (including Network Lock) will be available.

 

We have planned this because our mission even focuses on helping people with FOSS software for privacy protection. Using our VPN service and servers is a sustainable method to allow us to work according to our mission.

Brilliant and innovative as ever. I can't wait to see what kind of things you guys have come up with in maybe two years from now. Some suggestions (not really too serious):

 

1) Anonymous AirVPN hosting, VPS and seedboxes

2) Ability to choose encryption client-side for non-critical sessions (helpful on older machines, for example blowfish/SHA1 or AES128/SHA256)

3) Eddie for Android

4) AirVPN Linux (and/or BSD) privacy edition

5) Increase connections to 5 so I don't have to keep swapping devices

6) SOCKS5 and HTTP proxies for non-critical applications

 

Just thinking out loud!

Still on Eddie 2.7 here but I have a couple of questions concerning this new update.

The "Network Lock option for Private network", does it solve this problem: https://airvpn.org/topic/12229-network-lock-in-eddie-25-can-not-share-home-network-with-other-computers-when-enabled/ ?

 

Also, as I mentioned in that thread, does the network lock feature save now the exceptions you agree to? It's kind of annoying having to confirm rules each and everytime one reboots...

 

Thanks

 

Edit: see here as well: https://airvpn.org/topic/14002-network-lock-and-sharing-local-folders-on-home-network/

testing this on yosemite right now. network lock improvements are very welcome. I'm now able to reach my local network with NL being active. also NL on eddie startup seems to work so far. the only thing missing now is a way to prevent connections during system startup to make it really bulletproof. until then I'll  keep little snitch profile switching active for that purpose.

 

thx and keep up the great work!

 

I have LS installed, too. How do I go about making use of profile switching? I just use it to monitor outbound attempts.

I had to look twice to see you'd added something there haha.  

 

I don't think they can release an Eddie for iOS because of Apple's tight lockdown of the OS, but I may be wrong as I know there is at least one basic OpenVPN app for iOS now. It certainly wouldn't be as fully featured as the 'real' Eddie from what little I know of Apple's ecosystem.

Horrible client on my end... I hated using AirVPN on windows (the 2.8 client) because it was just so slow and most of the times didn't work and now the same is happening on linux (ubuntu). Logs here:

For now I'll revert back to the 2.8, because with this one I cannot get a working connection (it works sometimes, probably 1 in every 50).

I have unchecked the box now for Network Lock but Windows Firewall cannot switch itself on on my PC as I have it set to disabled in Services. I had a problem a couple of years back when somehow Windows Firewall switched on by itself. Turned out that it was one of the monthly MS updates which had caused this to happen as I had only turned it off from the box on the services screen. To ensure that it cannot switch itself on again by accident you must go into properties and disable it from there, then it is off period. The green border only happened on my first visit online after updating to v2.9 X it has gone now. Is there an uncomplicated way to get the network lock feature to work with Comodo CIS?.

I'm not speaking for Eddie (the Air client) directly, but I'm pretty sure once you give something administrator access it can enable services at will. With that in mind saying it definitely can't re-enable because you disabled the service is rather disingenous. As for Comodo, there's a full guide in the forum's how to section. Hope this helps, and I'm glad to hear your issue resolved itself.

 

Is there also any instructions for Norton Security firewall to make it work with Network lock?
