AirVPN Network lock

Recommended Posts

hello people,

i have a question because of the network lock in airvpn, i activated it but 1 problem:
its only working when the AIRVPN client is started, i chose airvpn auto windows start but the problem is that still with ssd its taking maybe 5 seconds to start (it starts with loading beam).
the question is how can if fix that? example: the airvpn client eddie crashes (latest version ofc) -> my internet IS UNPROTECTED!

thanks for any help

1) Network Lock is not meant to survive a reboot. It's an intended behavior and a very wise decision.

2) Network Lock will remain enforced if Eddie crashes, contrarily to what you claim. It's a set of firewall rules. BUT of course if Eddie crashes at the very start then of course Network Lock will not be set.

3) If you wish that your system is always isolated from the Internet during bootstrap, set a permanent firewall rule (or two, if you have IPv6) blocking all outbound traffic. That's all, because when Network Lock is activated, Eddie will rewrite rules to allow communications to Air VPN servers. Similarly, when Network Lock is disabled by your command, Eddie will restore your previous firewall rules, which will block again all traffic (so you don't need to worry not even during the shutdown).

Kind regards

How? I did this on Windows 10 and Eddie just refuses to connect, maybe step by step would be useful for noobs like me please?
