Eddie CLI - vpn over tor command line

Recommended Posts


as i've write in other topic, seems we can't launch eddie-ui GUI client in tails 3.7.1 without crash of app.

(seems permission-related question, i've tried some change and the use of torsocks but none works)


So i've to use command line interface; it's necessary to add specific option to connect to airvpn over tor ?


I think i should add something to command line.. i cant use only :

   "airvpn -cli -login=mynick -password=mypassword"


Could someone gently post the simple base command line to obtain vpn over tor connection ?


i'm sure it would be very useful have a simple working command line for start the ball rolling.

I don't think that's possible yet. The manpage for version 2.14.4 gives you these options only:

              Protocol for connection.  UDP , TCP for direct openvpn connection.  SSH , SSL for additional tunneling Default: AUTO

              Port for connection. Default: 443

              0 to use the default entry IP, 1 or more for additional entry IP Default: 0


              Tor Control port Default: 9151

              Tor Control needs authentication. Normally the Tor Browser Bundle requires authentication and accepts a file cookie password Default: True

              Tor Control password. If empty, the software tries to detect the file cookie password

No mention of a --mode.protocol=tor but you could try it, anyway.
