Eddie Android blocking local network despite configuration

Recommended Posts

I have set up Eddie for Android. I have 2.4 (VC26) which I believe is the lastest version. Android version is 10, lastest LineageOS.

In my Laptop when Eddie is connected it routes all the traffic to the VPN except local traffic, since I have the option checked. I can do 192.168.1.15 and it will not go through the VPN, but will go to my local device.

This is not the case with Eddie for Android in my phone. In Eddie for Android I have gone to Settings -> System -> Exclude local networks from the VPN (Checked) . But despite this, the local network is not reacheable unless I disconnect from the VPN.

I have tried all the combinations with the Android config settings. I have set up Block connections without VPN on and off, Always-on VPN on and off. The only time I can access my local devices is when the VPN is off AND Block connections without VPN is off.

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong? The setting 'Exclude local networks from the VPN' is on, so I do not understand why it does not work.

Cannot confirm on LOS 17.1.
Maybe Eddie logs will help.

I have check the logs and nothing in there. Is there any configuration setting I need to set up to have a more verbose log?

We are using the same OS. Can you tell me what you have in 'Block connections without VPN' and 'Always-on VPN' or any other configuration you think it matters?

Let us be the judge of that. It was an indirect request for those logs.

If you mean the Android settings, both are off. Log output of my Eddie client is in the file. This is what we asked of you.

This is the logs with the two Android settings also off

 

eddielog.txt

After the last connection you see in the logs, I tried to connect to a couple of local services and they did not go through.

I am still having this issue. I am not sure if not having the PlayStore or Goolag services in my phone has anything to do with it not working, but my guess is it should not.

Any idea what I can do to debug it?

Oh, sorry, I was writing something here but never sent it. I think some visitors came by at the time.
Hm. Your network at 10.10.10.0/24 seems to be correctly excluded. From the logs alone this looks like it should work as intended.

It doesn't. Eddie does not use Google APIs; would be a scandal if it did :D

Well, I can tell you it is not. Several apps can connect fine when the VPN is off (and Block connetions without VPN is off too), fail to connect when the VPN is on and connect fine again the moment I turn the VPN off.

What else can I do to debug this issue?

Try a support ticket, maybe professional support can help you further. Be sure to report back here regardless of the result.

Hi,
Just want to add me too to this post.
My local network is blocked, despite the setting. If fact no configuration settings in Eddie seem to be taking effect as I cannot even change UDP to TCP.

I am using latest android and ASUS ROG 3 phone.

Cannot confirm on both LOS 17.1 and 18.1, so no idea why it's not working for you.
