    The discussion about Eddie has become a real hot topic in the past weeks. And understandably so, given the fact that "Eddie" is a core element of the whole service and a highly sophicticated one too. But i think that one has to consider the fact that AIR has to develop software for 4 OS'es (WIndows, Linux, Mac and Android) if i am not mistaken. That's a hell lot of work to do and it takes lots of time to develop a fully functioning client from scratch. There are other VPN services out there that give a shit about their client, hell, they don't even have one for Linux, let alone for Mac OS X. The community itself is a little "spoiled" in this regard, if i may say so. I am a bit impatient too and i am awaiting the release of the new client quite eagerly. But it doesn't help much if the community puts pressure on the devs. If they release the new client too early with a lot of bugs, then the community complains about a buggy client, and all hell breaks loose. So just let the devs make their job and i am confident that a new version is coming soon. Regards, BB

    Eddie Desktop 2.18beta released

    Hello! We're very glad to inform you that a new Eddie Air client version has been released: 2.18beta. It is ready for public beta testing. How to test our experimental release: Go to download page of your OS Click on Other versions Click on Experimental Look at the changelog if you wish Download and install Please see the changelog: https://eddie.website/changelog/?software=client&format=html In this release, we changed all source code from the ground up, to separate what needs superuser privileges and what not. PLEASE CONSIDER THIS A BETA VERSION. Don't use it for real connection, it's only for those who want to collaborate to the project as beta-tester. We hope to raise now the frequency of feedback replies here and Eddie releases.

    I guess the community would be much less irritated if there would be a status update like every two or four weeks or so regarding the new changes or development overall of the 3.x and 2.x clients. Putting some screenshots of new functions/design or describing what you've archived in the last weeks or so would also definitely help understand the progress of the development. Heck maybe even consider involving the community directly and let members vote in a poll how they like a change or a feature you are about to implement. That would definitely be welcomed by the community and members wouldn't feel beieng let down and think that they are tapping in the dark. That said, I really like and enjoy what you've accomplished with the development of the Android client so far. Really awesome work! (By the way - is there any way to turn the "Master-Password" feature of the Android client off? Or will it be implemented sometimes in the future? Thanks x) ) Hope to hear from your further development soon. Keep it up!

    Eddie Desktop 2.18beta released

    Please report something: message error, log... Fixed in 2.18.2. Fixed in 2.18.2. In any combination of IPv6 disable: sysctl or grub. Fixed in 2.18.2 Cannot reproduce. In 2.18.2 we also improved some layout, but in any test System notifications are showed, in our Notifications area of the sidebar too. Please recheck. Cannot reproduce. Sometimes, if you close the window with the X button, menu takes some seconds to update, but works coherently. If we use the minimize button, it looks always fine. Please recheck. Quick: Yes, now it's default. Yes: Profile file (~/.config/eddie/default.profile) now can be encrypted with OS keyring or a custom master password. I don't remember the specific forum topic, I think you can try Automatic. This need more investigation. Please report OS of the laptop, connection info (what servers) etc. Windows resize: Cannot reproduce. Please recheck. Does anyone else have this issue? Yes, if you use the installer, it's automatic. Otherwise check in Preferences the installation of the service, to avoid password input every time. In Preferences you can enable Network Lock at startup. Absolutely, there was a bug. Fixed in 2.18.2. Please download the .xz edition for Arch, install with "pacman -U xxx.xz". Official AUR repo will be updated soon, for this beta stage download manually from Download page. This is IMPORTANT. We cannot reproduce the issue on our labs, on "10.15 Beta (19A4871) - macOS Catalina". We added some logs lines to identify the issues. If the problem occurs again with 2.18.2, please open a ticket with the full support log (Logs -> Support icon). Thanks. Correct, now UI is totally separated from an executable/daemon (launchd) that performs elevated actions. With launchd daemon, it's not expected anymore the prompt every time. Please report any issue.

    Eddie Desktop 2.18beta released

    Hello! This is excellent news. But you added an unusual warning at the end, which seems unusual. Wondering if it'll spread more FUD than necessary and perhaps not get you the same amount of feedback, in return. Anyway, it's working for me so far. The only minor errors, are UI texts. Not bad Staff :). Here's the changes, for anyone who doesn't want to follow the links:

    Has Air given up on Eddie for desktop?

    About Eddie 3.x : we are still working on that, but we can't give out right now 'screenshot', as the UI is in draft/debug stage, sorry. Development of 3.x depends on some core-changes that we made directly in 2.x series in the latest months. We have released a beta version of the new 2.X series here: Still under testing in different OS and configs due to a lots of internal changes.We hope to improve the reactivity and feedback with this release, promote it as a stable version as soon as possible, and restart with frequent releases.

    We are testing and fixing bugs, but I assure you that my team (including myself) is working full time on Eddie. We hope to release a public beta version during the first days of September.

    Has Air given up on Eddie for desktop?

    @airnoob Hello! This will be fixed for sure. We will not repeat the same mistake, trust us. Stop, you misunderstood the whole matter: the patch fixed the corruption of the configuration file which was caused by the bootstrap servers output. It was not something to be fixed in the code of Eddie desktop editions, apart of course designing a software which handles in a better way corrupt configuration files. The bootstrap servers were reconfigured with a new manifest format which introduced a bug: when someone tried to log the account in without having a valid plan, the bootstrap servers returned a bad message format that caused the corruption of the default.xml file of the user who did not have a valid plan. The bug was fixed quickly in the bootstrap servers. The patch you mention fixes corrupt configuration files on the client side, as an alternative to delete them. Not essential, just an additional tool for those Windows users who tried to access the service without a valid plan. Yes, you had better stop speculating. Clodo is an Air co-founder so your assumption is wrong. We will let Clodo explain the exact reasons of such delays in development, if he wishes so. Here we just point out that any excessive work load on some department is being quickly balanced to avoid any further problem of this kind. AirVPN has both the resources and the will to continue delivering the best VPN experience in the consumers' market as it has always done in the last 8 years. About the last year you mention, you can note that AirVPN has delivered from scratch not only an Android application with unrivaled features, but it is the only VPN which actively develops OpenVPN 3. AirVPN has added to OpenVPN 3 missing features that were never seen in it after years and years of development, like ChaCha20 cipher on the Data Channel. No other VPN service has ever achieved the same results. Kind regards

    How strange, I see the staff are replying to other threads, but the one that's critical of them...Silence... I mean, it's clear for all to see: They've entirely given up on Eddie for desktop, they KNOW it's broken and they have willingly ignored issuing patches instead favoring broken software (If you can install Eddie on Ubuntu 18.04 desktop then great, because when it loads for me it just crashes). So great job Air, thanks for supporting the people who fund your business. It's great to see you'd rather get involved with political nonsense rather than making your own damn software functional. ProMIND does an amazing job (although the Android version needs some improvements), so what is Clodo doing to actually get the new version out there? Because we're a month from 12 months of NO UPDATES. 1 year. NO UPDATES. Jesus.

    Hello! Of course we care about you. Tell us, is it better for the NGOs you mention to access our web site as it is now, or to not access it at all? Because that's the alternative at the moment. And you can still access the web site through Tor (if you run the Tor browser you need to accept and execute javascript from airvpn.org only). If you were really so upset about the safety of the NGOs you mention then why in a previous post of yours you told us that you "couldn't care less about AirVPN mission", that our "political views" are crazy, and that you only care about an efficient system unrelated to political missions which you don't give a f*? You change your mind and twist facts exclusively to attack us in our forums. Your account has been created exclusively for this purpose (for the readers: this account has been created just few hours before its first flaming post and has already been suspended in the past for abusive behavior; also, the account has never had a valid VPN plan). Kind regards

    Does Country matter?

    As far as i know. you can torrent on any server you want without getting any notice from your ISP. However, AirVPN recommends that you dont connect to a server in the same country you are in. Why? i dont know, i just read it on the mobile app (Eddie)

    Hello! AirVPN is very proud to introduce for the first time ever OpenVPN 3 support for ChaCha20-Poly1305 cipher with Eddie Android edition 2.4. The new implementation means remarkably higher performance and longer battery life for your Android device. CPUs that do not support AES New Instructions, typically ARM CPUs mounted on most Android devices, are much faster to encrypt and decrypt a stream of data with ChaCha20 than AES. At the same time, ChaCha20 offers the same security when compared to AES. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salsa20#ChaCha_variant You can test right now the new cipher. We have prepared four test servers running OpenVPN 2.5 and supporting ChaCha20 in Canada and the Netherlands. When you pick ChaCha20 as cipher in Settings, Eddie will filter properly Air VPN servers to let you connect to them. The outstanding feature has been made possible by AirVPN implementation on "OpenVPN AirVPN" of new directives, never supported before by OpenVPN 3, as well as a brand new, rationally re-engineered class for AEAD ciphers, which currently includes both AES-GCM and ChaCha20. Development of OpenVPN 3 will go on during the next months. Here's the current status: Eddie Android edition available languages are: Chinese (simplified), Chinese (traditional), Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Russian, Turkish. Eddie for Android is free and open source software released under GPLv3.

    Eddie Desktop 2.18beta released

    New beta, nice! Some small-ish things at first blush.... OS: MacOS 10.14.6 (latest, all patched up) Eddie beta: 2.18.1 Notifications: In Preferences>UI, the "System notifications" box is check by default, and while there is a banner that pops up saying "1 new notification" from Eddie, no actual system notifications are showing up in the Notifications area of the sidebar. I don't usually keep this enabled (personal preference), but I did notice the behavior when I first installed the new beta. Show/Hide Main Window (in Eddie menu bar drop-down): I think this has been around a while, but it's definitely present in the beta so...after closing the Main window of Eddie, the drop-down in the menu bar will often list "Hide Main Window" as the option, instead of "Show Main Window". Selecting this "Hide..." option will indeed bring up the Main window. So, the functionality isn't 'broken' by any means, but the drop-down seems to lose track of Hide vs. Show. Preferences>Protocols: more of a question, perhaps...I see the default listing is now in a different order, with the TLS-Crypt options first (yay!), so does that mean if we leave the "Automatic" box checked, Eddie will try to connect with TLC-Crypt over UDP first? That's been something I've selected in prior Eddies, so just wondering at the default behavior now. Preference>General: is the "Profile data protection" option new? If so, is there going to be a blurb on the options for that somewhere once this Eddies goes final? Interesting option, just a but curious about it. Preferences>Advanced: I recall changing buffer sizes in the past (on good recommendation from folks here in the forum)...is that still needed to keep Eddie happy? Or have the many under-the-hood changes allowed for the default "Automatic" value to do the job these days? Preference>Advanced: I run Eddie on a laptop (and on a few different Wifi nets), and I'm noticing that I'm not getting IPv6 connections like I used to on the network I'm currently on today. At this location, IPLeak.net would regularly show me both v4 and a v6, while with the new Eddie a few difference connections (different servers) have mostly not shown me the v6. Admittedly, I don't use that much / at all, however it is a change in behavior that I've noticed, fwiw.

    @airnoob: Of course you are right with what you are saying. One year without an update of an important software is a no go. But at the end of the day, what can you do? You can switch to another provider; there are plenty on the market. That's for you to decide. I am not satisfied with the current situation either. V2.16.3 is now a year without update, you can consider it deprecated. I personally would pay 2 or 3 Euros more a month if i get an up-to-date software in return, that's for sure. But i don't know if complaining expedites things in the end. Proof me wrong if it does. Regards, BB

    Update on Netflix USA access

    @huckleberrybear88 Hello! Unfortunately, our OpenVPN 3 library, and/or an app based on it, is not planned for iOS currently, as GPL and similar licenses remain incompatible with the Apple store terms. Obviously we can not legally close the source code or provide a binary without source code or modify the license of the source code our apps are based on (not even if we wanted, and we don't), so we can't do anything for iOS in this case. The issue has been brought into light by FSF itself in 2010: https://www.fsf.org/blogs/licensing/more-about-the-app-store-gpl-enforcement and raised a lot of attention again when Apple took down VLC from the store. It is periodically debated, for example here: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=12827624 That's also the reason for which openvpn-connect is the only app to use OpenVPN in iOS devices from the Apple Store (as the conditions enforced by OpenVPN Technologies to the commits by anyone is that they can change the license, close the code, redistribute it for their commercial purposes etc). Kind regards

    Airvpn and logging?

    Now and then this eccentric idea comes out. Frankly we can't see any rational reason to understand how from an amount of connections per user which can be stored into single integer variable one should jump to the idea of logging. We operate servers of our property as well as rented servers. That's another bizarre idea, which you use to jump to conclusions. Anyway if you think that a datacenter logs the traffic metadata and/or content of any and each communication to/from the devices using their lines, what is the difference between an owned and a rent server? By the way just apply partition of trust, end of the story. Kind regards

    Do both, that is what I do. I will avoid the technical "how to" but its really easy to do. With 2 posts I don't know where you are on abilities to write simple UFW firewall rules. I use Eddie on several linux family machines. I set up totally internet blocked firewalls on these machines. Eddie running on the linux Desktop (Debian) will create its own firewall when its launched and will TEMPORARILY store my UFW firewall as a backup (done automatically in the background). When I close Eddie MY original firewall rules are reset so that my machines cannot ever access the internet under any circumstances without an AirVpn tunnel. For my machines this additional safety measure means that a family member cannot mount the computer and then go online while being outside an AirVpn tunnel. They have no clue or desire to learn how to mount UFW in a terminal and disable the firewall manually. They have learned to click on the AirVpn Icon on the Desktop and then enter the Admin password to launch it. I have Eddie set to auto connect to the desired server so they just sit there and enjoy an easy connection and safe surfing. So simple and compels their security whether the want it or not, LOL!!

    Yes, looks good. Additionally you could select "IPv4 only" in the drop down menu "Internet Protocol used for connection". But it should work either way. In case you have a fast internet connection (> 100 MBits) you can increase OpenVPN buffers to 512k. (-> TCP/UDP send/reveive buffer size). But this is optional, it can help optimizing your speeds. Regards BB

    Thanks! The attached graphic shows what worked. The check box being checked was useless (was already checked when the problem was encountered). Drop down menu must be manually selected to "Block."

    Has Air given up on Eddie for desktop?

    Hello! Yes, we aim to Catalina compatibility with both Eddie and the new software based on OpenVPN3-AirVPN library. Stay tuned. Kind regards

    Hello Notgund1, I am by no means an expert, but If you want someone to be able to help you, they will need more information. Like the operating system you are using, and logs from Eddie so they can figure out the reason why it is happening to you. Have you tried using different ports and connection protocols, to see if it still happens? Just out of curiosity?

    Emby and AirVPN

    What is that? The first time I hear of this. OMG....that's "obsolete" "encountered issues" as in configuring a software firewall too difficult?

    That's not the issue. It's the way you have configured your PC server.(where you have installed EMBY). Take a look at GUIDE - EMBY(below).

    Emby and AirVPN

    If you use Eddie App on your PC server; then it probably will not work. You need an "Allow EMBY rule". Whitelist EMBY through "Eddie/Firewall". What firewall do you utilize and don't say you have only "Windows Defender"?

    Thanks for your input. I have managed to resolve this matter now. I firstly stopped protection with Kaspersky but the problem was still there. I started Kaspersky again then removed Zone Alarm Firewall and Eddie installed and connected first time. Time to look for another firewall I think. Thanks

    Thank you to Clodo and the staff for replying. There's no harm in communicating with the community: "hey, here's the status of Eddie". Maybe Clodo is the sole developer of the desktop version, maybe there's more than we're aware of but taking the time to talk doesn't take that long. Also, this might not be possible, but I'd love to see development builds released with the source code (if that can be built into the workflow) so the community can help you and get involved (maybe that might help or hinder, but having many people poking around, finding/fixing bugs isn't a bad thing). Of course, scaling to deal with that can be a process in itself (handling PR's, issues etc). But at least talking about the new version, the new UI, screenshots, progress reports, that can satisfy users (like me and some above) and keep them engaged. If you fall off a cliff entirely and disappear...Well threads like this happen asking "what is going on?". Air provides a superior service and client, I want to give money for the development of these clients (for Clodo, ProMind and others) because they're what I use and rely on, on a daily basis, and are by far the best clients for OpenVPN in existance. So please keep us posted, you may not realise it but some invest for exactly this reason, you're both a service provider and a software developer, I'd love to support that directly if you need more people (but I am sure finding good quality developers is not so easy. Many many people rely on code written by Clodo/ProMind so it's not an easy job).

    You may be overreacting a bit. For example, pfsense stable is still on openvpn 2.4.6 and another VPN provider I use is still using 2.4.6 with their app. I don't know why that is but it seems to me that devs aren't in a hurry to move to the 2.4.7 version.

    AirVPN Network lock

    > set a permanent firewall rule (or two, if you have IPv6) blocking all outbound traffic. How? I did this on Windows 10 and Eddie just refuses to connect, maybe step by step would be useful for noobs like me please?

    Protection from Timing/Correlation attacks

    Funny marketing fluff. Since AirVPN birth we allow multi-hop connections (opt-in) between different VPN servers, between VPN servers and SOCKS or HTTPS proxies, or (better solution) between VPN servers and Tor nodes. Safer and better than marketing fluff. HOWEVER, it must be known that there are some errors in the article you linked. It mixes at least two totally different attack types and makes a lot of confusion. Timing attacks can be performed anyway even on Tor network (in any low latency mix based protocol network, in general) given an adversary with enough power to monitor vast portions of the Internet., so the general analysis provided by the article is... imaginative, to say the least. Kind regards

    I know Air cares a lot about protecting *against* (edit: forgot an important word here) censorship across the world, but is it necessary to turn their company Twitter into a 24/7 ‘Free Assange’ machine? I like to follow it for finding out new info about VPN servers and things of that matter. Up until a few weeks ago, it was relatively dormant and only seemed to tweet when there was new things about the company*. Now it’s almost turning into an echo chamber for the “anti-MSM” crowd. (*yes, you may be run by activists, but you are a business. Don’t forget that). As a business owner who does do a lot of social, one of the most important pieces of advice I can give is to separate the politics from your company unless there’s a 1000% connection between the two. I don’t think Assange was an AirVPN user and whether or not you agree with his treatment as of late, it probably doesn’t impact the AirVPN service in any way. I’m also sure there are many other instances of freedom of speech being trampled upon that don’t involve him yet do involve presumably innocent people being jailed for speaking the truth. Whoever is running that Twitter should make a separate personal account and use that as his soapbox as it could lead to potential new users deciding to use a less political VPN provider. https://twitter.com/airvpn

    The Android app seems to require a master password - this looks to (very often) block reconnection attempts (esp. overnight) leaving the phone without a VPN connection. Is there a way to remove this requirement? Seems other VPN providers do not need it. Thanks

    Hello! Yes, definitely. According to our roadmap, "OpenVPN 3.3 AirVPN" based clients will be deployed for Linux (not only x86 but also ARM), OpenBSD and FreeBSD, three systems which are widely used even in various devices (including routers) using CPUs not supporting AES-NI. Kind regards

    What's your e-mail provider?

    Just because they once hosted WikiLeaks does not mean they're cool, as Mr. zhang888 once said. Check this post of him. If they don't mention Posteo, StartMail or Mailbox.de, that chart doesn't say it all unfortunately. Those three providers proved to be reliant in the past. Also, notice how the providers are carefully chosen to compare CTemplar with more green, and humble "in progress" things among them which would easily translate to outright NOs right now

    Very slow speed through VPN

    I have been having the same issue. I've used this service for atleast 3-4 years without any speed issues, and the last month or so I have only been able to get at 10-11 max Mbits/s if you look at the "eddie speed log"....its excruciating. Torrents are maxing out right around 900KiBs - 1000KiBs. I have comcast xfinity 100Mbps connection. When I disconnect and close Eddie, I instantly go back to getting 7000-8000 KiBs on torrents. Speedtest websites confirm that while connected to eddie/airvpn I only get 10-12mbps. I've searched all over looking for solutions, and I cant find anything.

    pretty scared of this shit and new administration is far worse than the last which at least claimed to respect the ideas of net neutrality to some degree. most americans, people all over the world realy, have no idea how the internet even works and don't understand what it is they are losing. same with complex science concept, it ends up being a tool of politics. all this stuff is being done in the name of security and people don't have understanding of networks so they believe it.

    What's your e-mail provider?

    Not sure if relevant. Posteo uses browser fingerprinting. Tutanota, Proton, Fastmail, etc do not. Browser fingerprinting is used to track people over multiple domains unnoticed and underneath the radar of adblockers.

    AirVPN does more than just purchase a server, route all traffic and count the money. They are actually interested in the privacy, which makes me to subscribe every year again.

    Using AirVPN with Asus router

    About AsusWRT AsusWRT is a unified firmware developed by Asus for use in their recent routers. The firmware was originally based on Tomato-RT/Tomato-USB, but has since seen many changes. Asus started using this new firmware with their recent routers (RT-AC68U, RT-AC87U), but they also started moving other routers to this new firmware. Prerequisite Asus Router with AsusWRT (native OpenVPN support). Model tested:RT-AC68Ubut it should work for all Asus routers that have AsusWRT. see Official website for AsusWRT model support list. [Firmware Notes]: Please upgrade the router Firmware to the latest version. "New Asus Firmware supports 4096 bits key and will work with AirVPN." Steps1. Create configuration files from our Config Generator. Select [Router or others] and choose a server you like. Tick on [Direct, protocol UDP, port 443] and click on [Generate]. Save the openvpn config file .ovpn (Ex: AirVPN__UDP-443.ovpn) anywhere on your computer.2. Open the Asus router webinterface and click on [VPN]. Click on [Add profile], choose [OpenVPN] tab. Enter a "description", leave username and password EMPTY. Click on [browse] and select the downloaded openvpn config file (.ovpn). Click on [upload]. Click on [OK]. That's it now you can click on [Activate] to connect to AirVPN server. 3. Make sure to setup the AirVPN DNS this way: Click on [WAN] tab. Turn [DNS server] "off" (No) and enter AirVPN's DNS as first DNS IP address (it's DNS for Protocol UDP, Port 443 - see Specs for more details). About the secondary DNS entry, we recommend picking ones from the OpenNIC Project. The AirVPN DNS will enable you to access AirVPN geo-routing services to bypass discriminations based on IP address geo-location. 4. Visit https://ipleak.net and check if it works.Every client (PC, Smartphone, Console, Smart TV ..) which is connected to the router now is secured by VPN and also have full access to the anti-geo-blocking service. Useful Info A custom firmware for Asus routers based on official AsusWRT called Asuswrt-Merlin is available. AsusWRT-Merlin retains all the features of the original stock AsusWRT firmware with added/enhanced features. More info on AsusWRT-Merlin website http://asuswrt.lostrealm.ca/features

    The United States is an enemy of the Internet. More and more our technology and communications are captured illegaly and stored for many years and then used against us in court. The government seems to sincerely believe that it owns the Internet and regulary hacks into foreign servers to retrieve data, seizes domain names, etc. and any citizen who can be considered a hacker under broad laws will be thrown in prison. My warning as a US citizen is to watch out, encrypt, keep everything secure, keep data offshore, and avoid any US-influenced entities such as ICANN. Thank you AirVPN for the great continued service. I've been using multiple VPN connections almost constantly for the past year everywhere and as far as I can see that will continue
