Linux: AirVPN Suite 1.2.1 RC available

Recommended Posts

Hello!

UPDATE: AirVPN  Suite 1.2.1 has been released. https://airvpn.org/forums/topic/55264-linux-airvpn-suite-121-available/


We're very glad to inform you that AirVPN Suite version 1.2.1 Release Candidate 1 is now available. This is a quick fix release.
 

The suite includes:

  • Bluetit: lightweight, ultra-fast D-Bus controlled system daemon providing full connectivity and integration to AirVPN servers, or generic OpenVPN servers. Bluetit can also enforce Network Lock and/or connect the system to AirVPN during the bootstrap
  • Goldcrest: Bluetit client, allowing full integration with AirVPN servers, users, keys, profiles as well as generic OpenVPN servers
  • Hummingbird: lightweight and standalone binary for generic OpenVPN server connections
 

What's new in 1.2.1

  • Packages are available both for OpenSSL 3 and OpenSSL 1.1.x (legacy). Pick one according to the version you have in your system. If in doubt, run openssl version command from a terminal.
  • bluetit.rc new directive forbidquickhomecountry to allow or forbid quick connections to home country servers
  • Goldcrest bluetit-status option now shows the status of network lock and connection
  • update of all support libraries, including OpenVPN-AirVPN
  • bug fix: invalid user key label issue. Now, in case an invalid user key label is provided, the proper error is returned

Please check the changelog included, as usual, in the packages for detailed information.

Some notes:
  • for Raspberry OS pick the ARM 64 bit legacy package, because Raspberry OS is based on Debian 11 and uses OpenSSL 1.1.x by default.
  • for old Raspbian operating system and other 32 bit ARM systems pick the ARM 32 bit legacy package
  • for Ubuntu 22 for Raspberry, pick ARM 64 bit mainline package (not legacy)
  • if you run some i686 Linux let us know. You can still run AirVPN Suite 1.10 but if we have requests we can prepare a package for abandoned systems. Link to AirVPN Suite 1.1.0 for i686: https://eddie.website/repository/AirVPN-Suite/1.1/AirVPN-Suite-i686-1.1.0.tar.gz sha256 checksum: 6454cafc860ccc89da5da933c5bed279b1e1534a750f4423e6937e4fb84779e1
     


Thank you very much for your tests and please report any bug, glitch, malfunction etc. in this thread!
 

Packages


Please note that the Suite is no more built for i686 systems (32 bit architecture). If you need the Suite for such systems please run 1.1.0 release in the meantime and contact us in this thread or through a ticket.

Hello,

i have noticed that the networklockpersist directive may not be working properly when the maximum of connections (guess) have been reached and there is a sudden reconnect of all clients.

Normally i would expect to see something like:
 

Quote

Dec 02 xx:xx:xx xxx bluetit[xxx]: EVENT: RECONNECTING
...
Dec 02 xx:xx:xx xxx bluetit[xxx]: TunPersist: saving tun context:
...
Dec 02 xx:xx:xx xxx bluetit[xxx]: Connected via tun
...


However, due to the sudden and quick reconnect of all clients(??) (e.g. in case the router reboots/crashes), bluetit shows an ERROR: AUTH_FAILED (on all clients!) and therefore resets itself which leads to a full reset of network settings (IP leak):

Dec 02 xx:xx:xx xxx bluetit[xxx]: OpenVPN3 connection thread finished


bluetit.rc:
 
Quote

airconnectatboot server
airserver  xxx
networklockpersist  on
airusername xxx
airpassword xxx



When i only have 4/5 clients running, the problem does not occur (tunX just moves to tunX after reconnecting - as expected).

I have now checked it multiple times by rebooting my router. Normally, i would expect the AUTH_FAILED error to only occur when 5/5 clients are connected and at least one of them is using WireGuard due to the longer handshake timeout (Eddie shows this max. connections reached error).

Can we make the networklock(persist) stay active even if the auth fails (for whatever reason) to prevent leaks? I was not able to find any details in the dev docs.

P.S.: I'm still on 1.2.0

Thanks.

Hello!

The authorization access is decided by the AirVPN infrastructure and not by the Suite. Thank you for the head up, we will look into the potential issue you mention. Also keep in mind that when you connect via UDP and your router crashes (or reboots), none of the clients will be able to notify the respective servers that they are leaving the VPN. Therefore, even with OpenVPN, you will experience much longer time for connection slots release (normally a maximum of 2 minutes).

This is already implemented and it's the expected networklockpersist (but not networlock!) behavior. Bluetit will not "lift" a persistent network lock if the (re)connection attempt fails, and not even when it is disconnected and waiting for commands. Note how the behavior of networklockpersist is different from that of networklock .

Should you notice that network lock firewall rules are unexpectedly no more in place when you suffer an AUTH_FAILED error and netwokrlockpersist  is enabled, please report at your earliest convenience.

Kind regards

Hello!

Thank you for your tests. Unfortunately openSUSE 15.4 offers libssl 3 but an older C library, a combination unsupported by the Suite 1.2.1 RC 1, either legacy or not. If possible install libssl 1.1 and run Suite 1.2.1 RC 1 legacy version. In the meantime we will ponder the issue.

Kind regards

Libopenssl 1.1 was already installed.
Removing libopenssl 3 gives many problems
I'll wait for another solution.
thanks for the reply

Hello!

First things first: contrarily to what we stated above, openSUSE 15.4 Leap by default runs OpenSSL 1.1.1l and glibc 2.31. AirVPN Suite 1.2.1 legacy runs successfully (tested). Second, if you installed OpenSSL 3 (it is available only as an experimental package), you don't have to remove it. The AirVPN Suite 1.2.1 legacy version is linked against libssl 1.1 so it will run out of the box if you have that library.

If you still experience any issue please make sure that you're running the legacy version and that libssl 1.1 is really available. Feel free to keep us posted.

Kind regards

Hello!

The log you sent us shows that you have installed AirVPN Suite 1.2.0. Here we test AirVPN Suite 1.2.1. For your system, openSUSE 15.4, AirVPN Suite 1.2.1 legacy is required, because of the glibc library version (2.31). According to our tests 1.2.1 legacy runs fine in openSUSE 15.4.

The secondary issue which prevents connection to ipleak.net and therefore hinders location extrapolation:

Quote

Dec 05 12:29:21 Localhost bluetit[2262]: ERROR: Cannot detect system location: Unknown error: Problem with the SSL CA cert (path? access rights?)

can be ignored at the moment, it's related to CA certificates path and libcurl. If you need geo-location for a more accurate server choice after a quick connection request, you may use the country directive in bluetit.rc file.

Kind regards

Hello!

Excellent, we see that everything works as expected. route-delay directive is not supported by OpenVPN3, and it has been deleted from the Configuration Generator too. Please delete the directive or renew your profile. You can tell Bluetit to generate a new profile directly, through Goldcrest commands (see the manual, search for --air-save Goldcrest option), or don't use a profile at all and have Goldcrest pass the connection order to Bluetit (probably this is a more comfortable usage).

Kind regards

¨(see the manual, search for --air-save Goldcrest option)¨

I browsed through the manual for a while and tried something.
But I really don't understand what to do, try my best to understand.
Go back to 1.2.0 for now.
Staff thanks for help so far.

update: Everything works, problems solved

in client area I deleted devices and created new ones.
further removed all .ovpn from pc and created new one in config generator.
that did it....
