Set Buffersize in the Command-Line Editionof Eddie

Recommended Posts

Hi there!

I installed the Eddie Client on my (headless) Ubuntu Server. I managed to start a VPN connection using the

'airvpn -cli'

command, giving some arguments like

-login -password -connect -server -port and -protocol


However, the up and down speed aren't as good as I expected. As I read, increasing the buffer size could improve the speeds.

In the GUI version of Eddie (which I tested on my Laptop) you can set the TCP/UDP buffer size (Preferences -> Advanced -> General).


Is there a way to set these buffer sizes using the command line edition of Eddie, too?

I couldn't find an appropriate command in the documentation.




Is there a command to disconnect the VPN via the command line?



Thank a lot & cheers

If you're using the Beta version of the client, the buffers would already be set to 256kb(the speed recommended to normally help fix speed issues), so I doubt you'd see any speed increase by increasing it to 512kb, unless you've got a very fast connection or something

$ airvpn -cli -help | grep buf
            TCP/UDP send buffer size. Special values: '-2': Automatic, '-1': OpenVPN default. Default: '-2'
            TCP/UDP receive buffer size. Special values: '-2': Automatic, '-1': OpenVPN default. Default: '-2'


WARNING: only in Eddie 2.11.x.


Kind regards
