Eddie ver. 2.16.3 gets stuck at “Checking route IPv6” when Network Lock is active

Recommended Posts

I've just installed Eddie 2.16.3 on a new Windows 10 system.


When Network Lock is active, I can't seem to get Eddie to connect to any of the servers because it gets stuck at "Checking route IPv6" and the connection keeps timing out. I have put exceptions in both Malwarebytes and Windows Firewall for all components used by Eddie including the OpenVPN Daemon but it still refuses to connect when Network Lock has been activated. It works fine otherwise, but it is annoying since Network Lock is a useful feature for preventing DNS leaks.


I have attached a log file to see if anyone can help me figure out what's causing the problem. Bizarrely this problem is not present in earlier builds of Eddie such as 2.14.5, which I don't want to use for security reasons.


I am using Windows 10 Home, Version 1803, OS build 17134.345.


I hope this information is sufficient to help resolve the issue.

Just posting to add that I am experiencing the same problem as OP.


Running Eddie version 2.16.3. With Network Lock active, I can't connect to any server; I keep getting timeouts. With Network Lock disabled I have no problem connecting.


Windows Home 10, Version 10.0.17134, Build 17134

I have the same issue on Windows 10 Pro (build 17134), with Eddie 2.16.3.


The issue only occurs if IPv6 is enabled AND network lock is enabled AND network lock is set to the default "Windows Filtering Platform".

For the time being, I have set network lock to "Windows Firewall (Not recommended)", and now I can successfully connect to servers.


EDIT: Ahh, ignore above... It only worked 2 or 3 times, I can no longer connect with network lock and IPv6 enabled at the same time.
