ANSWERED Is network lock enabled (default) when running airvpn (hummingbird) and whats the best way to run it at boot?

Recommended Posts


As far as I can tell it is enabled by default. is this true? Is there any way I can check if this works? 
Right now I am running hummingbird at boot by adding  the following to bash.rc :

cd /home/pi/hummingbird-linux-armv7l-1.0.2
sudo ./hummingbird NL.ovpn

Is there anyway to stop hummingbird after boot so I can check if network lock still works?
Is there a better way to start hummingbird at boot?

Thanks in advance

By default Hummingbird enables network lock. See also --network-lock option.

Another good place where you can start Hummingbird at boot is /etc/rc.local

If you stop Hummingbird properly with a SIGTERM, network lock will be disabled.

If you wish to test network lock when Hummingbird is not running, kill Hummingbird with no grace:
sudo kill -9 `pidof hummingbird`

Your system will remain with firewall's network lock rules and VPN DNS set. When you're done, to restore your previous system settings, re-run Hummingbird with --recover-network option only.

Kind regards
