Hummingbird 1.0.1 released

Recommended Posts

Hello!

We're glad to inform you that Hummingbird 1.0.1 has just been released.

Hummingbird is a free and open source software by AirVPN for:

  • Linux x86-64
  • Linux ARM 32 (example: Raspbian for Raspberry PI)
  • Linux ARM 64
  • macOS (Mojave or higher version required)


based on OpenVPN3-AirVPN 3.6 library supporting CHACHA20-POLY1305 cipher on OpenVPN Data Channel and Control Channel. Hummingbird is very fast and has a tiny RAM footprint. AES-CBC and AES-GCM are supported as well.

Version 1.0.1 uses new OpenVPN3-AirVPN 3.6.2 library which features various improving minor changes and fixes an annoying bug which caused "ncp-disable" directive to be ignored in profiles.

Note: command line options --ncp-disable and --cipher, when specified, override profile directives.

Please consult the following page for details, changelog, instructions and download links.
https://airvpn.org/hummingbird/readme/

Hummingbird source code is available here:
https://gitlab.com/AirVPN/hummingbird

OpenVPN3-AirVPN library source code is available here:
https://github.com/AirVPN/openvpn3-airvpn

Important: Hummingbird is not aimed to Android. To have CHACHA20-POLY1305 on Android, please run our software Eddie Android edition, which uses our OpenVPN3-AirVPN library.

Kind regards

Brand new development of the IPv6 problem. I have probably identified the bug. But here goes the story first.

First I was a bit euphoric. Then I noticed it used tun1. I forgot I'm already connected via OpenVPN:

When I disconnected with OpenVPN and tried to connect the same bug appeared to happen:

You think you see a pattern? Let's put it to the test. I queried AirDNS for all the servers and searched for one with specific characteristics in the first three nibbles: One with at least one letter, one with a number outside v4 range and then one inside it.

Huh. I reconnected with OpenVPN and they ALL worked! Well, in part, because now something was wrong with the routes or so, but at least it correctly identified the address as v6! The v6detecttest.ovpn is the same as tls-crypt.ovpn from previous tests, only all remote* directives are replaced with the one I wanted to test.

$ sudo ./hummingbird -N off -i v6detecttest.ovpn

I'm not entirely sure what to make of it all. If it really is something with my configuration, I must test other machines…

Apart from that, it couldn't create custom routes via route directive, it seems, but that might be because it doesn't know the special keywork net_gateway yet:

Fri Jan 24 19:10:22.633 2020 exception parsing IPv4 route: [route] [192.168.0.0] [255.255.0.0] [net_gateway]  : tun_prop_route_error: tun_builder_exclude_route failed


I overlooked the ::/1 via fde6… route.

Then there's this line:

Fri Jan 24 19:10:22.634 2020 net_route_add: 8000::/1 via fde6:7a:7d20:7fa::1 dev tun1 table 0 metric 0

According to subnetcalc that's… 8000:: to FFFF:FFFF:…?

$ subnetcalc 8000::/1
Address       = 8000::
                   8000 = 10000000 00000000

It also seems to not set the v6 routes for all currently assigned UGAs like OpenVPN does. v4 is done right:

$ ip r

0.0.0.0/1 via 10.13.178.1 dev tun0

Four simple things:
There's a guide to AirVPN. Before you ask questions, take 30 minutes of your time to go through it.

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here. It's the fallback DNS.
Running TOR exits is discouraged. They're subject to restrictions on the internet and harm all AirVPN users.

Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, you'll be unique among the mass again.

On Linux Mint 19.3 I'm still getting TCP_OVERFLOW errors on both stand alone Hummingbird and in Eddie 2.18.6 beta.  Like with Hummingbird 1.0.0, this error appears while torrenting; the client cannot keep pace with the number of requests and throws the error - not sure if there's a fix for it.  I'm unable to use the UDP protocol, as all UDP ports are closed by default where I have internet access.

Hello!

Hummingbird tries to use in sequence the first available firewall between iptables, iptables-legacy, nftables and pf. In your case, Hummingbird finds iptables-legacy. With IPv4 no errors seems to arise, but the problem comes out with IPv6. ip[6]tables-legacy is a wrapper to nftables, so IPv6 support in nftables might be the problem, or maybe it's a bug in ip6tables legacy in your unstable distribution (or you just disabled IPv6 support in your system, but you told us that you keep getting the error even when you re-enable it, can you confirm?).

Can you please re-test Humminbird without the --ipv6 no option you enforced, just in case, and check whether the problem is the same or not?

Another possible test, but it's more problematic if you need iptables syntax somewhere in your system or applications, would be removing iptables and iptables-legacy packages. In this case Hummingbird will use nftables.

We can not support unstable distributions (you're running Debian Sid according to your ticket) because we can't circumvent all the possible bugs which an unstable distribution may potentially come with: it would be a wrong approach and anyway it would be an overwhelming task.

However, we will offer in a near future release the option to force Hummingbird to use a firewall chosen by the user. When the option is available you will be able to force usage of nftables, bypassing iptables-legacy, if it's causing the issue.

Please keep us informed if you decide to perform any of the above tests.

Kind regards

Hello!

Bug detected and under investigation. It involves all versions of OpenVPN 3 library (not only our fork unfortunately) so it must be something we have been dragging with us since the very beginning, OR (worst case scenario) something related to asio library (hopefully not). If you have the option to use UDP, please do it, otherwise stay tuned, we have given very high priority to the bug.

Kind regards

@Staff

After doing a fair amount of investigation and research into iptables and nftables I found that my iptables in use only covered a default  basic firewall setting without any additions that would hopefully not cause a problem to any programmes or system settings if removed.
I read up on converting iptables to nftables, did so, deleted iptables, and started using nftables.
I can now use hummingbird with network lock working correctly.
As a result of these changes there are no entries in the log anymore showing any problems with IPv6 .

I am grateful of your explanations and help 

p.s I would not have made these changes and alterations without a decent backup programme in place to use if all went 'pear-shaped'

Please increase the maximum amount of packets allowed in the TCP queue with directive tcp-queue-limit n (n is the amount of packets) according to the amount of concurrent, global TCP connections your system needs when you run a BitTorrent software. OpenVPN 3 default limit is 64 packets.

For example, add to your profile the following line:
tcp-queue-limit 256

Please test again and check whether the problem is resolved. Of course consider to increase the amount of packets beyond 256 if you see the problem persisting.

Your feedback is very much appreciated.

Kind regards

Added tcp-queue-limit 2048 in OPVN custom directives through Eddie using Hummingbird 1.01 and so far not seeing any TCP_OVERFLOW errors.  Will report if the error returns. Thanks.

Noting other Hummingbird errors through Eddie:
ERROR: KEY_STATE_ERROR
TCP recv error: Connection reset by peer
ERROR: NETWORK_RECV_ERROR
EVENT: TRANSPORT_ERROR Transport error on '37.120.210.221: NETWORK_RECV_ERROR [ERR]

Hello,

we're very glad to see that the problem is resolved. 2048 packets make the output queue huge, but actually it is proportional to the amount of concurrent connections limit you have set in your torrent software. qBittorrent comes with a limit of 500 by default.

The other error you report pertains to a disconnection, unrelated to TCP_OVERFLOW. If you get such disconnections more often when you torrent, please warn us.

For the readers: overflow in the TCP output queue is a problem that does not exist in UDP.

Kind regards

@Staff Thanks for the advice.  Setting tcp-queue-limit to 500.  Will report again about the disconnects if I still get them.  Regarding UDP, I can get a connection for about 5 minutes before it gets shutdown; I'm behind a school firewall, so there's nothing I can do with UDP.  TCP is my only viable option unfortunately.
TCP_OVERFLOW error with limit set at 500, trying 1024 instead.


On 1-2 active torrents, tcp-queue-limit 1024 still leads to the TCP_OVERFLOW error with the same errors noted earlier; at that point Eddie reconnects but doesn't crash - now on Eddie 2.18.7 beta.  Setting tcp-queue-limit to 5000 or higher appears to work.

I recently updated my local hummingbird and openvpn3-airvpn repos to the latest commits and rebuilt a dynamic binary under the latest Slackware x86_64 current.  No problems with this.
However, I'm still encountering the key errors I reported with hummingbird 1.0 with this updated version, now typically within a few hours of connecting.  The difference from before is the tunnel not only remains up now, but will typically renegotiate the key successfully at the hour mark.  But the key error usually happens again before too long.

Should it be helpful for troubleshooting, here is the (slightly redacted) ovpn I use to connect to AirVPN Canada servers with hummingbird:

client
dev tun
mssfix 1470
remote ca3.vpn.airdns.org 443 udp
setenv UV_IPV6 yes
push-peer-info
cert keys/airvpn.crt
key keys/airvpn.key
cipher AES-256-CBC
auth SHA512
comp-lzo no
remote-cert-tls server
