    Two new 1 Gbit/s servers available (JP)

    Hello! We're very glad to inform you that two new 1 Gbit/s full duplex servers located in Tokyo, Japan, are available: Albaldah and Bharani. The AirVPN client will show automatically the new servers; if you use any other OpenVPN or WireGuard client you can generate all the files to access it through our configuration/certificates/key generator (menu "Client Area"->"Config generator"). The servers accept connections on ports 53, 80, 443, 1194, 2018 UDP and TCP for OpenVPN and port 1637 UDP for WireGuard. Albaldah and Bahrani support OpenVPN over SSL and OpenVPN over SSH, TLS 1.3, OpenVPN tls-crypt and WireGuard. Full IPv6 support is included as well. As usual no traffic limits, no logs, no discrimination on protocols and hardened security against various attacks with separate entry and exit-IP addresses. You can check servers status as usual in our real time servers monitor: https://airvpn.org/servers/albaldah https://airvpn.org/servers/bharani Do not hesitate to contact us for any information or issue. Kind regards and datalove AirVPN Team

    DNS stops working

    I am experiencing intermitting DNS problems, where noting gets resolved anymore. I am using Eddie 2.21.3beta and Wireguard. I have to connect to another server for DNS to work again. Which server doesn'tmatter, as after some time to problem reoccurs and I have to connect to yet another server to get it working again for some time. Rinse and repeat so to say. I have no idea if it is either Eddie, Wireguard or something else related.

    Exit IP - is this from AirVPN?

    Not entirely sure it's possible. This one is Alya. Its primary TLS-Auth IP is .170 and comes up if you query ca.all.vpn.airdns.org. Well, it's not forbidden to run exit nodes behind AirVPN servers, only recommended against to avoid exactly these kinds of incidents. But egoists gotta be egoists. I can neither confirm nor deny it, but it's a strong indication that it is triggering it. Also, please don't try to use VPNs at your workplace if they are expressly forbidden or you can otherwise be held accountable for using one.

    DNS stops working

    Hello everybody, can you please re-perform all of your tests and report back? We have found a bug which potentially might have caused the reported names resolution failures and we have fixed the code. Please let us know whether the problems keeps occurring or not, as our automated DNS testing sentinels deployed on several flag servers have stopped reporting resolution failures since when the fix was applied. A couple of hours ago the fix has been deployed on all the VPN servers. We are looking forward to hearing from you. Kind regards

    That Pull option is not set, I believe it corresponds to --pull which is a necessity. --pull This option must be used on a client which is connecting to a multi-client server. It indicates to OpenVPN that it should accept options pushed by the server, provided they are part of the legal set of pushable options (note that the --pull option is implied by --client ). Not sure if your app implies --client. I'd say, try ticking Pull.

    AirVPN Suite does work fine with Slackware 15.0 RC3 64bit, but I suggest to make the change noted below. I have noticed Intermittent issues with IPv6 on my system with my ISP. This assumes you are using Network Manager, which is setup via /sbin/netconfig You should edit file /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/00-dhcp-client.conf and comment out line 'dhcp=dhcpcd' then uncomment line 'dhcp=dhclient'. Doing that all works fine after a reboot to reset dhcp. Well spoke too soon, above does work most of the time, but I suspect there is an issue in Slackware with its dbus. Once in a great while IPv6 causes problems with goldcrest (or bluetit or my ISP). I will play around and respond here if I track down the issue.

    ANSWERED DNS Probe Possible...

    Yeah, good idea and I don't know why I didn't think of that. I did have the secure DNS setting on and have now turned it off. I'll try if for a few days and come back if it fixed the problem. Follow-up - a couple of days after turning off the secure DNS option in Brave, and no messages so far. For what it's worth, I also have DNSSEC enabled on my pfSense router "DNS Resolver" service, pointing to 1.1.1.1 / 1.1.1.2. So whether I am on AirVPN or not, I have a secure DNS connection.

    ANSWERED DNS Probe Possible...

    I see. Issue seems to be Brave-specific and points to the issue of the configured Secure DNS provider not being reachable. Disable it, it makes little sense in the VPN network.

    Eddie Android edition 2.5 released

    Hello! We confirm that it's not possible for Eddie to start during the bootstrap of any un-rooted device running Android TV 10, 11 and 12, and this is not an Eddie-specific limitation, simply because "Always on VPN" has become mandatory for the purpose, but at the same time Android TV has always had this feature removed. Should we find a solution to circumvent this deliberate limitation on un-rooted devices, we will be willing to implement it, but at the moment we are not aware of any solution. OpenVPN connect, OpenVPN for Android and other apps undergo the very same limitation. Kind regards

    Hi @Staff, just a quick reminder that as of today this bug is still open in the Config Generator. No big deal for me, but new/other users (who are unaware) might be wondering why the old host is not resolving.

    Hi, on starting Eddie, when I click on 'Activate Network Lock', after the 'Are you sure' prompt then I'm getting the following error Exception: iptables don't reply, probably kernel modules issue This has been working fine until recently. I'm using Pop! OS 21.04 and they recently upped their kernel to 5.15.5, so that may have something to do with it. I've tried Eddie versions 2.20 and experimental 2.21.3beta and both have the error. If I avoid the 'Activate Network Lock' and just run 'Connect to a recommended server' then this runs just fine. But then I lose some connectivity to other servers and services across my LAN. Any thoughts?

    DNS stops working

    Hello everybody! Some guidelines to help us investigate, as we have failed to reproduce the issue. When you experience the problem please report here all the following information: the fully qualified domain name you could not resolve the server you were connected to the connection mode and protocol (some OpenVPN mode or WireGuard) the DNS block lists you had active, if any the complete output of the command dig or nslookup pertaining to the "problematic" domain name Kind regards

    DNS stops working

    Hello! We are currently unable to reproduce the reported DNS issues and we do not have tickets by users (not even one) that can help us investigate. Can you please specify the exact servers where you can reliably reproduce the problem while you query VPN DNS? Note: if you cant' resolve names with other (not AirVPN's) public DNS, then the problem should be related to a broken connection, and not to VPN DNS: @root1337 The error: VERIFY ERROR: depth=1, error=certificate is not yet valid: implies that the device date is incorrectly set to the past and the certificate is not yet valid in that date. It's possible that the router could not sync through NTP during the bootstrap. Actually the first DNS server you set (10.4.0.1) is accessible only from within the VPN, therefore it will not resolve any name, including NTP server names. The router will then fall back to the second DNS, the OpenNIC one. Since OpenNIC servers have been replaced and some of them suffered downtime, try a different DNS server (for example Quad9, address 9.9.9.9). Anyway this problem seems unrelated to the other DNS issue you report. Kind regards

    The guides are user-produced content, so contacting the authors of those guides will be the only thing getting you forward here. Also, how do you know they will answer in the same tome? You really think the way they write a guide in the forums, targeted at more advanced people, is the way they write to everybody, especially if you specifically ask for a more beginner-friendly vocabulary? I'm sure the overwhelming majority will break it down for you a little; they're not machines, you know, they can adapt. Alternatively, you can ask here for some explanations, but please link the guides you were trying to follow. Other people could chime in this way. And, of course, welcome to AirVPN.

    Logging for DNS

    @thetechdude Hello! We're sorry, we can't do that. Although you say it's not, what you propose is indeed specific client related traffic monitoring and logging/storing which we are contractually obliged not to perform. Even setting it as an opt-in feature would surely cause endless controversy and potential contractual breach. As a workaround, if a DNS query fails on our DNS (remember that each server runs its own DNS server) you can discover the reason through dig or nslookup. Kind regards

    Logging for DNS

    There are a few misconceptions here. There is a difference between logging DNS queries temporarily and logging VPN traffic. It's possible to enable logs on DNS for like 5 minutes and then turn it off. Let's say I'm trying to go to a site that Easylist, or any other list, blocks. Wouldn't it be nice to know that, so that you could then make an exclusion? This is something that every other DNS filtering service allows; ControlD, NextDNS, AdGuard Home, etc. So, what I'm asking for is nothing new or scandalous in any way.

    Logging for DNS

    This would create a crapload of backlash. What, it is possible to log DNS queries? So what, AirVPN lied about the no-log? I think I can answer this with a confident "No, never". I don't understand this sentence. Blocked by what? AirDNS doesn't block a single domain name. If enabled, it even unblocks a few of them. Is there a case where you think AirDNS blocked something? Or what's the cause for this sentence?

    WireGuard beta testing available

    I'd assume so, since WireguardNT has been enabled by default in Wireguard itself for a few months now. https://mobile.twitter.com/EdgeSecurity/status/1437402720135270403 WireguardNT is part of the Wireguard project and thus bugs should be reported there. https://lists.zx2c4.com/mailman/listinfo/wireguard

    You should get different interface addresses if you configure multiple different "devices" in AirVPN's UI here: https://airvpn.org/devices/. Each device has a details button to view the VPN IP for that device. Two AirVPN devices should work fine on the same physical device, just remember to use different adapter names if on Linux (eg. wg0 for the first one and wg1 for the second one).

    If you specify secret-tool to save the profile settings, they will be saved to the GNOME keyring which you first must unlock with whatever authentication you configured there before you can read its contents (and therefore the profile settings). Is this not desirable, change the mentioned setting to Plain.

    SMTP service recommendation?

    Is mailbox.org a viable candidate? You can use your own domain with them. In general, any SMTP server goes, be it GMail, Posteo, Tutanota, whatever. If you're okay with the mail address being shown as sender on the receiver's end, that is. You can additionally include a Reply-To header pointing at your domain mail address so that anyone clicking on the Reply button will send response mails back to your domain mail address. Some spam software will rate this approach slightly higher, though. Matter of preference.

    Tom Spark review

    I like and use AirVPN but I don't trust him/his reviews. It's not hidden knowledge that the whole VPN review market is a bidding war between which company pays more. Here's my (salty) opinion. Although he uses a fixed script for each review and assigns points fairly, no matter which VPN he reviews he mentions his top scorers at least once per video. I have a feeling that the point of every non "S tier" review is to redirect customers, like "hey you know AirVPN is cool and has some promising features but check this two VPNs I'm affiliated with, they're the best". The review script is odd. He values <1h customer support response higher than all the privacy points combined. Speed test results may depend on the time of day, location and server load, so one day the score may be 50 and another 40 points or lower. A bit off-topic: There was a civil war/drama between some VPNs, mainly *cough*Windscribe*cough* and him. I was following their discord channel some time ago. Previously he was promoting them as one of the best VPNs, but when they announced shutdown of affiliate program he started throwing blames (telling a company that they should keep it - continue paying him). Since then he moved them to the bottom of the tier list .

    AirVPN not acknowledged on EFF's donation page?

    Hi, I worked for free on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd reading of the Telecoms Package for a grassroots organization in close contact and co-operation with several other organizations including La Quadrature du Net, EDRi, the Swedish Pirate Party and EFF Europe with Eddan Katz (International Affairs Director). I also worked against ACTA (the Anti Counterfeiting Trade Agreement) with Katz and several activists since when the very first secret discussion paper was published by Wikileaks in 2008 and up to the final and total "victory" with ACTA's rejection by the European Parliament in 2012. My main activities were legislative analysis, giving lectures in Brussels at the Commission and the Parliament sites, as well as around Europe, or having discussions with MEPs and when possible Commission personnel to defend and explain grassroots movements point of view. In 2010 I co-founded AirVPN and when it had so much success I moved to a more "fundamental", technical activism, and finally left the public activism with direct lobbying. soon after 2013, when AirVPN took 100% of my work time. Currently my activism is reflected by AirVPN activities, technical infrastructure, donations etc. Kind regards

    FreeBSD setup guide

    @m1ster Hello! You can't build Hummingbird or the AirPVN Suite in FreeBSD because OpenVPN3 AirVPN library needs various modification for FreeBSD, you will not be able to even compile it at the moment. We have plans to port the AirVPN Suite to FreeBSD later this year, but first we need to adapt the library, which might be or not a trivial task, and we must release a new Eddie Android edition version before the summer is over. At the moment you only have the Linux binary compatibility mode option (try with Hummingbird, as Eddie will have too many complications due to Mono), and of course OpenVPN 2.5.2. Hummingbird and the Suite support and have always supported pf, the default FreeBSD firewall, but different directory tree and some other issue may cause trouble. https://docs.freebsd.org/en/books/handbook/linuxemu/ Anyway we assure you that FreeBSD support improvement with native applications remains our goal for 2021. Our FreeBSD users are many (25% of our Windows customers, and 20% of our Linux customers, who are currently the absolute majority), not to mention the system outstanding superiority, so stay tuned. Kind regards

    eMule and AirVPN on Windows 10

    I discovered a simple quirk of setting up eMule (P2P) on Windows 10 that causes port forwarding to fail with AirVPN. This tip that may save others a lot of time. During setup eMule creates an inbound rule in Windows firewall that applies to private networks in scope. This makes sense if using eMule without a VPN. However, Windows treats the AirVPN as a public network. Consequently port forwarding with eMule and AirVPN will not work using the default inbound rule created during eMule setup. The solution is to edit the scope of the eMule inbound rule in Windows firewall to apply to both private and public profiles. The latter is the important one. This is simple to do: In Windows Firewall, right click on the inbound rule for eMule, select Properties, Advanced. Under Profiles check both Private and Public. I am not a security expert so feel free to chime in if this setting raises any concerns. This may also apply to earlier versions of Windows.

    AIRVPN DOES NOT RECOGNIZE ANYMORE VERISIGN, AFILIAS AND ICANN AUTHORITY. OUR COMMITMENT AGAINST UNITED STATES OF AMERICA UNFAIR AND ILLEGAL DOMAIN NAMES SEIZURES. The United States of America authorities have been performing domain names seizures since the end of 2010. The seizures have been performed against perfectly legal web-sites and/or against web-sites outside US jurisdiction. Administrators of some of those web-sites had been previously acquitted of any charge by courts in the European Union. The domain name seizures affect the world wide web in its entirety since they are performed bypassing the original registrar and forcing VeriSign and Afilias (american companies which administer TLDs like .org, .net, .info and .com) to transfer the domain name to USA authorities property. No proper judicial overview is guaranteed during the seizure. Given all of the above, we repute that these acts: - are a violation of EU citizens fundamental rights, as enshrined in the European Convention on Human Rights; - are an attack against the Internet infrastructure and the cyberspace; - are a strong hint which shows that decision capacities of USA Department of Justice and ICE are severely impaired; and therefore from now on AirVPN does not recognize VeriSign, Afilias and/or ICANN authority over domain names. AirVPN refuses to resolve "seized" domain names to the IP address designated by USA authorities, allowing normal access to the original servers' websites / legitimate Ip addresses. In order to fulfil the objective, we have put in place an experimental service which is already working fine. If you find anomalies, please let us know, the system will surely improve in time. Kind regards AirVPN admins

    By using Tor behind an AirVPN node, you are blacklisting dozens of websites for no reason. IRC servers such as Freenode have been blocked, and now even imgur is blocked from uploading because it thinks its Tor. Heze is a good server and its one of only two on the West Coast, so please stop running Tor behind AirVPN nodes.

    Hello! A dedicated panel to manage your client certificates and keys is accessible in our web site. In order to access the main control panel click Client Area while your account is logged into the AirVPN web site. The Devices / Keys tab provides you with access to a panel to administer your client certificate/key pairs. The panel lets you use a multi-certificate/key support from AirVPN, a comfortable and convenient feature. You can have multiple pairs, renew them and issue completely new ones. From each device of yours you will be free to use any pair you like. Therefore you can keep all of your certificates and keys under control, administer them and also connect multiple devices to the same server and port by using a different key on each device. Eddie 2.13.6 or higher is required. In Eddie's Overview window a menu which will let you choose a key before you start a connection will appear automatically when you create a new certificate/key par from your account control panel (note: restart Eddie and log your account out and in again if such menu does not appear). To create a new certificate/key pair click the button labeled Add a new device. The Configuration Generator has been modified as well, in order to let you generate configuration files with the certificate/key pair you wish. Let's see in details how to use the "Devices/Keys" options. Device Name and Description: these are free name and description which you can associate to any pair for your comfort. Click the pencil icon to edit. Details opens a window showing various information: Type, Creation date, Last renew date and Last VPN connection. In the same window you can find the following actions: Renew: when you click this action button, the corresponding certificate will be revoked, and a new certificate/key pair will be issued. Delete: this action button will revoke the corresponding certificate, without issuing a new one. DNS: this action button will let you enter the DNS block list panel for that specific certificate/key pair to let you define, activate or de-activate specific DNS block lists, exceptions and additions, which will apply to that pair only. View history and View Active will toggle with each other to provide you with any relevant information on the history of your actions about keys and the current active list. Some caution when using the aforementioned features: if you revoke or renew a certificate/key pair which is being used by some connected device, that device will soon be disconnected in Eddie, you will need to log your account out and then in again to force Eddie to pick a different pair (new or old) to use new pairs, you will need to re-generate and import configuration files if you use them with some third-party software, or if you run OpenVPN or Wireguard directly Kind regards and datalove AirVPN Staff

    Eddie can use any OpenVPN configuration file, even of course pertaining to servers from our competitors. The UI is not yet enabled by default, use Preferences -> Advanced -> Multi-provider support. Note that AirVPN account or subscription is not required: AirVPN can even be totally removed as VPN provider. Remember: The features 'Pick port/protocol', SSH/SSL tunnels, 'Check Tunnel' and 'Check DNS' are AirVPN servers specific, so they will not be performed on other .ovpn files. Please report in this forum your experience with Eddie and other VPN providers, even if it works perfectly, thanks. The full conversion of Eddie to a generic OpenVPN wrapper is still under development, currently it's an hybrid (for example Settings contains AirVPN specific options that will be moved in the future). This is a subforum related only to Eddie. For discussion about other VPN providers, please use this subforum

    And BTW, @VpnAndMe: the IPLeak website (run by the good folks from AirVPN) checks and reports whether you're susceptible to the WebRTC leak.

    Does AirVPN log its users' IP addresses?

    Hello! If you had Network Lock enabled in our Air client, you have always prevented "WebRTC leaks", as well as any other packet out of the tunnel sent by any process binding to your physical network card. https://airvpn.org/faq/software_lock/ Kind regards

    Hello! Some additional considerations on the whole discussion. It seems somehow paradoxical that some of our customers explicitly ask for Net Neutrality violation when they look exactly for a service capable to respect Net Neutrality with no discriminations against any protocol. As soon as Net Neutrality respect brings inconveniences created by third-parties, we are somehow invited to send such respect into the trashcan. We tend to think that it would be more appropriate and honest to focus energy and protests against those services whose administrators actively contribute to destroy the open Internet, with Tor indiscriminate bans, huge blacklists which block millions of IP addresses just because they are 'used as NAT' or because they are used to operate dedicated servers. It seems unquestionable that the concept behind such actions is an Internet where end-to-end principle and privacy are deemed as negative features to be fought. Remember our philosophy and mission: banning a server of ours because it's a source of problems appears as a very questionable action. It is the same error that some services do with Tor: to hit someone, they ban innocent users who love their privacy or who are forced to use Tor to bypass censorship in their country. If our servers or a Tor node are performing vulnerability scan, service needs to fix the vulnerability, not blame who caught it red handed. If our servers or a Tor node are wasting a service resource, service operators need to learn how to configure well their systems. If a service can't afford a method to manage spam, it should close the discussion system, it would be better for all. For all of the above, AirVPN will never violate Net Neutrality, and so we'll never commit any action to help "incompetent services". Kind regards AirVPN Staff
