ANSWERED TAP/TUN Interface won't come up

Recommended Posts

Posted ... (edited)

I am attempting to run Eddie the AirVPN client on my Server 2016 box.


I have tried version 2.17.2, 2.16.3, 2.15.2, 2.13.6


Each version exhibits the same symptoms, the logs show the TAP Adapter is not launching correctly.


. 2018.10.24 18:49:26 - Eddie Windows Interface Hack executed (Ethernet 3)
. 2018.10.24 18:49:27 - OpenVPN > TEST ROUTES: 0/0 succeeded len=-1 ret=0 a=0 u/d=down
. 2018.10.24 18:49:27 - OpenVPN > Route: Waiting for TUN/TAP interface to come up..

It will loop this error over and over again until it gives up.


I have tried uninstalling the TAP drivers and reinstalling them. I have tried uninstalling the client and TAP drivers and rebooting. I have tried multiple versions of the client. I have tried using IPv4 only in Eddie, my NICs, and the TAP NIC.


However I can get the tunnel to complete by disabling the TAP adapter ahead of time. The client will force a re-installation of the driver and the tunnel will connect. However I have not internet access even though the tunnel is active, it's like the network locking component is in place like it should be but I can't seem to transmit my traffic through the VPN tunnel.


I am out of ideas so I will post my logs here. (Logs Retracted)


I have also tried setting the TAP adapter to always be on.


I will attach some of the more advanced debugging logs. (Logs Retracted)


If anybody can notice anything I am missing, I would appreciate it.

Basically I had no idea what was wrong with my TAP adapter but I knew it was software related. So I just reset all of my NICs. This seems to have corrected my issue


netsh winsock reset catalog
netsh int ipv4 reset
