Eddie 2.17beta released

Recommended Posts

@Staff

 

Again, many thanks for the care you are giving for this problem!

 

Please see my latest edit in my previous post. It may be very important, but I was dumb and didn't see it last time. I apogolise that, hopefulyl you didn't investigate the Openvpn vanilla behaviour of missing ppp0 DNS entry yet.

Still, it doesn't change anything in respect to the DNS "leak". OpenVPN seems not to leak, even there is an entry 1.1.1.1 in the ppp0 DNS. So only difference is to Eddie behaviour is that the Eddie DNS server is in not tun0 section, but in the Global section.

 

I noticed that my /etc/systemd/resolved.conf remains like this in every test, before and after connection:

cat resolved.conf

[Resolve]
#DNS=
#FallbackDNS=
#Domains=
#LLMNR=no
#MulticastDNS=no
#DNSSEC=no
#Cache=yes
#DNSStubListener=yes
#DNSStubListener=no

Every entry is commented out.

 

I tested, what happens when I comment in the DNS=, so basically enabling the first line.

[Resolve]
DNS=
#FallbackDNS=
#Domains=
#LLMNR=no
#MulticastDNS=no
#DNSSEC=no
#Cache=yes
#DNSStubListener=yes
#DNSStubListener=no

I restarted services networking and systemd-resolved.

 

The results after Eddie connection:

What is odd, that Eddie servers were not really read by systemd-resolved anymore into Global section at all.

 

Here are the results, when resolved.conf was the same, but I used vanilla Openvpn and command line:

cat /etc/resolv.conf 
# Dynamic resolv.conf(5) file for glibc resolver(3) generated by resolvconf(8)
#     DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE BY HAND -- YOUR CHANGES WILL BE OVERWRITTEN

Nothing has changed in the Openvpn test.

Yes, the important change to tun0 by the OpenVPN script is the DNS global scope and this is sufficient to have your system use only the VPN DNS.

 

Eddie 2.17beta should not be used in your (and any similar) environment until the detected bugs are not resolved because you can't even patch the issue with the OpenVPN scripts, we're sorry. After all this is a beta version so it's not upsetting that bugs can come out.

 

Please go back to Eddie 2.16.3 and keep using OpenVPN scripts which work impeccably. Eddie developers have been already informed, of course.

 

Kind regards

Ok, thanks for the info!

 

This is why I absolutely love AirVPN. The tech-savvy staff is really knows what it's doing and users' problems are investigated carefully.

If you force close the pc so it doesn't allow airvpn to close gracefully it will not start on the next boot and task scheduler has an error 0x40010004 displayed for the last run. You might want to see if you can improve it so it is indeed started regardless.

No manual server switch possible...

 

With 2.17.2 eddie does autoconnect to a server after pc boot, but when i want to switch to another server it fails everytime. There is a message about some not configured protocol "System.Net.NetworkInformation.SystemIPInterfaceProperties.GetIPv6Properties"

 

When closing and starting eddie again it auto-connects normally

I was having a similar issue. You might want to try this:

 

This from support fixed the problem for me:

 

Can you please try to rename the following file while Eddie is NOT running:

C:\Users\(your user name)\AppData\Local\AirVPN\default.xml

 

This is the configuration file. At the next run Eddie will create a new configuration file with all default settings (you will need to re-enter your credentials). Should the problem be solved by this procedure, then the old configuration file could be corrupt in some way that causes the issue.

 

 

 

Note that the AppData file is hidden, you need to select the view tab and select to show hidden files. I also deleted the history file (I think it was called) and restarted my computer. Works like a charm now; using the new beta version of Eddie.

deleted the default.xml, started eddie again and configured everything new, but same problem stays. At least i can switch servers when pressing disconnect first.

So far - it's early in the development cycle - Eddie 2.17.2 (beta) is working fine with the development version of Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Dingo).

I encountered the same problem as Meelosh. It is gnome of Manjaro and gnome of ubuntu-18.04.

Multiple AirVPN icons appeared and it was very messy.
This problem only occurs with gnome. In Ediie 2.17.2 this problem is not solved.

Hello!

 

Suggestion: Staff do you think it would be reasonable to include the load and ms for the currently selected server, on the Overview page, instead of in the Servers tab, where one first has to find the server in question?

 

The ms could go underneath Connection and perhaps a third box for load could be under the two existing upload and download boxes, in the middle. So it's still symmetrical .


Moderators do not speak on behalf of AirVPN. Only the Official Staff account does. Please also do not run Tor Exit Servers behind AirVPN, thank you.
Did you make a guide or how-to for something? Then contact me to get it listed in my new user guide's Guides Section, so that the community can find it more easily.

Just wanted to +1 this suggestion, though I'm sure there are higher priorities I agree the information would be a useful addition to the overview page\tab.

I have the same issue as meelosh : on the panel (I run Xfce on Debian) I still have eddie visible as if it didn't minimize on the tray, although I also have eddie (2.17.2 beta) in the tray

What is the status of Eddie client software development?  It appears to be stalled for months.

Already answered here.

Linux Mint 17.3 LTS (14.04 LTS), Eddie 2.17.2 beta loses the selected font after every restart needing it to set in the UI tab each time.

 

I have the same issue on Linux Debian Stretch with MATE DE. Custom UI font resets after restart. Previous versions worked just fine.

Under 2.17.2 for Windows, should I have "Remove the gateway route" checked to prevent leaks? Currently I have it unchecked and it connects OK and doesn't seem to leak, but months ago using older versions, I needed to have it checked to prevent leaks (ipleak.net).

Hopefully its done soon. This old beta version seems to be getting worse and worse heh. Now when I first run it, it will always hang on checking IPv4 and never connects to any server. Have to close and restart Eddie every time and MOST of the time on the second try it connects as it should. Sometimes it takes a couple of restarts before it gets its act together and will finally connect. Debating going back to Tunnelblick in the meantime but I really like the Network Lock, and Tunnelblick's version just doesn't work the same (it just disables your network adapter altogether if it disconnects).
