ANSWERED Eddie freezing on network lock Ubuntu 18.04

Recommended Posts

It used to work fine until yesterday but something broke it.

I sometimes got an error message along the words of: network activation failed because it is already in place. Most of the time it just freezes the client.

Downloaded the beta 2.17.2 because the changelog suggested a fix but nothing. The button changes but the titlebar says "activation of Network lock - Linux iptables" forever and eddie becomes unresponsive.


Tried reinstalling iptables, tried flushing ipv6&ipv4 tables manually. Nothing changed


Any fix for this? Log doesn't say anything. Just stuck on "Activation of Network Lock"


Running newest KDE Neon based on Ubuntu 18.04

Please enable "Log debug" in "Preferences" > "Logging". It will increase log verbosity which could provide some clue about what happens (feel also free to send the log or even better a system report, even in a ticket).


EDIT: also, while Eddie is not running, you might rename the file ~/.airvpn/default.xml (root access is needed to do that). It's Eddie configuration file. At the next run Eddie will create a new default.xml file with all default settings: check whether the problem gets sorted out or not.


Kind regards

The issue resolved itself. I cannot replicate it anymore and Network lock is faster than ever with the new Beta!
Will post the log and try deleting the config if it ever happens again. Thanks
