Bug:

Fatal error occured, please contact Eddie support: Object reference not set to an instance of an object -    at Eddie.Platform.Windows.NetworkLockWfp.DeallowInterface(NetworkInterface networkInterface)

How to reproduce:

1: Eddie -> Networking -> Interface used for connection -> select an interface (in my case, a wireless network card (USB)).

2: Change wireless adapter SSID

3: Observe the following error:

 Fatal error occured, please contact Eddie support: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. -    at Eddie.Platform.Windows.NetworkLockWfp.DeallowInterface(NetworkInterface networkInterface)
at Eddie.Core.NetworkLockManager.DeallowInterface(NetworkInterface networkInterface)
at Eddie.Core.ConnectionTypes.IConnectionType.OnClose()
at Eddie.Core.ConnectionTypes.OpenVPN.OnClose()
at Eddie.Core.Session.OnRun()

Why?

I have observed that list does not get updated automatically, even with Ethernet if things change I need to entirely exit eddie and re-open and the list is updated (for example, if IP address changes). I have several networking interfaces I use for different purposes so this bug is quite frustrating, as when the "eddie" interface dies (and apps are bound to that interface) they also need to be restarted (such as qBT).

You can observe the next time you open Eddie the interface box will contain no selected item (so connect fails) as it has 'disappeared'. I suspect if the interface list updated automatically (if possible) it would be great.

Thanks, hope this helps.

May I request that someone add the following to the MacOS Hummingbird section for those who enjoy their GUIs? I had to perform the following steps to (finally!) enable Eddie to work with Hummingbird on the Mac and I was unablle to find any such guide on this website:

  • FYI: This guide presumes you have successfully installed and run Eddie, and have connected to the AirVPN service without issue in the past.
  • To start with, disconnect from AirVPN and quit the Eddie application.
  • Ensure you are logged in with an account that has Administrator privileges. If you are using the first user account you set up, congratulations. You have administrator privileges.
  • Download and unzip Hummingbird with Archive Utility. This will unpack everything into a folder. Double-clicking should work but if not, select the file, go to the File menu, highlight Open With, and select Archive Utility.
  • Drag the Hummingbird folder to wherever you wish it to be stored. For this example, I placed it into Applications.
  • Once placed, open the Terminal application located in Applications > Utilities.
  • Type the following without pressing return (omitting quotation marks, and the space after root is critical): "sudo chown root "
  • Open the Hummingbird folder then drag the Hummingbird application into the Terminal window. This will fill in the details.
  • Press return on your keyboard. You will be prompted for your user password. Enter the details then press return to confirm.
  • This will change the ownership of the Hummingbird application to your user account to System which should prevent the "Error: Exception: Executable 'Hummingbird' not allowed: Not owned by root." One can verify this by selecting the Hummingbird application, clicking the File menu and selecting Get Info. Under Sharing and Permissions, the owner will be changed to System.
  • Next, open Eddie, click the Eddie menu and select Preferences.
  • Click on Advanced then check the box next to Use Hummingbird. Then click on the folder icon to the right of that checkbox, navigate to where the Hummingbird application was placed. Click on the application and select Open.
  • Once done, the path should be filled in. Click save.. and that's it. You should be able to use Hummingbird via Eddie. If there are any problems, restart Eddie and attempt to connect again.
TL;DR: You need to "sudo chmod root" the Hummingbird app as Eddie does not elevate Hummingbird's permissions when it elevates its own permissions.

I hope this helps other people.

Sincerely,
Me

Hello!

The procedure you describe should not be necessary as Eddie must take care of it. However some old Eddie version has a bug and Hummingbird could not be launched because it was not owned by root. Eddie, for security reasons, does not start with root privileges anything not owned by root. Do you still need the procedure you describe with Eddie latest release 2.20.0?

Kind regards

AirVPN servers will offer it, during an opt-in beta-testing phase, within September.


Hello!

Is there any information on how to opt-in to the AirVPN beta? 
I have been using AirVPN for a long time and would be glade to help test the wireguard implementation/roll out. 

Additionally,  I can't start the Eddie Desktop v2.21.1 client AppImage on linux. (A small window/message box pops up and closes immediately.  To fast to read.)
Launching using terminal, I get following exception:

libmono-native.so seems to be missing. 

v2.20.0 AppImage works on the same machine. 👍

Hello!

Thank you! Access activation to Wireguard beta testing will be available in the "Client Area". We will have more information on a definite date very soon, we're still working on it. Announcement will follow in "News" forum.

Can you also tell us your Linux distribution name and version? If you run Eddie beta from other packages (not the AppImage) do you see the same crash?

Kind regards

Great to hear! I will keep an eye on the announcements. :)

Linux distribution is Solus, this is also the reason why I use the AppImage (deb, rpm, ... etc. are not supported on Solus).
Version is 4.3, but it is a rolling distribution so that doesn't mean much.

Yes, very much so. This was performed to get Eddie 2.21.1 working with Hummingbird 1.1.2 on two different Mac OS machines. I had attempted to use Hummingbird 1.1.1 back in late January with the most current Eddie version at that time and that had also failed.. the infinite loop of trying to connect, disconnects, retry in three seconds.

One system was a fresh (erased drive, restored from Apple's servers with no user data ported, migrated, or time machine'd) Mojave install upgraded to Catalina, the other was a similarly fresh install of Big Sur.

Version 2.21.2 has a massive memory leak when using wireguard after some long periods. I had high CPU usage and it was using 10GB ram. This is on Windows 10.

It works perfectly for me in Windows 10 (without WireGuard) and so far I have not experienced any problems.
But I had to install Eddie with administrator privileges.

Hi

This same error occurs for me on a fresh Debian 11 install with a package version installed today, so it should have the hotfix. Seems like there is no version that works easily on Debian 11 currently because earlier versions have the libappindicator1 dependency which doesn't exist on it.

Since this new ping engine I get huge latencies on my favourite servers. In the beginning it's only some, but after Eddie is running for 30min all goes up to 4-digits milliseconds..

I tried different protocols for connecting, but it all ends up like this

It's the other way around here.
Getting an exception trying to network lock with iptables. After Installing nftables and enabling it in Eddie, it works again.

Request: On Windows, similar to the OpenVPN adapter, please add a "do not remove every time" option for the Wireguard network adapter.

This will allow me to use policy routing using the MAC address of that adapter. If that's not possible, at least re-use the same MAC address for the adapter.

This works well for the setup I already have for OpenVPN, so similar functionality will help in easy transition to using WireGuard.

Thanks.
