    Hello! We're very glad to inform you that a new 10 Gbit/s server located in Zurich (CH) is available: Xuange. It's the first server we propose with a dedicated 10 Gbit/s line and port. As we have now circumvented several computing limits through load balancing and improved optimization, it's time to gradually test larger bandwidth. The AirVPN client will show automatically the new server. If you use any other OpenVPN client you can generate all the files to access it through our configuration/certificates/key generator (menu "Client Area"->"Config generator"). The server accepts connections on ports 53, 80, 443, 1194, 2018 UDP and TCP. Just like every other Air server, Xuange supports OpenVPN over SSL and OpenVPN over SSH, TLS 1.3 and tls-crypt. 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 the server status as usual in our real time servers monitor: https://airvpn.org/servers/Xuange Do not hesitate to contact us for any information or issue. Kind regards and datalove AirVPN Team

    New feature: DNS block lists

    Hello! We're glad to introduce a new feature in AirVPN infrastructure: DNS block lists. By default, AirVPN DNS remains neutral in accordance with our mission. However, from now on you have the option to enforce block lists which poison our DNS, in order, for example, to block known sources of ads, spam, malware and so on. You can manage your preferences in your account Client Area ⇨ DNS panel https://airvpn.org/dns/. We offer only lists released with licenses which grant re-distribution for business purposes too. The system is very flexible and offers some exclusive features never seen before in other VPN services: You can activate or de-activate, anytime, any combination of lists. You can add customized exceptions and/or additional blocks. Any specified domain which must be blocked includes all of its subdomains too. Lists which can return custom A,AAAA,CNAME,TXT records are supported. You can define any combination of block lists and/or exceptions and/or additions for your whole account or only for specific certificate/key pairs of your account (Client Area ⇨ Devices ⇨ Details ⇨ DNS) Different matching methods are available for your additions and exceptions: Exact (exact FQDN), Domain (domain and its subdomains), Wildcard (with * and ? as wildcards), Contain, Start with, End with. An API to fetch every and each list in different formats (see Client Area ⇨ API ⇨ dns_lists service) is active Any change in your selected list(s), any added exception and any added block is enforced very quickly, within few tens of seconds. You don't need to disconnect and re-connect your account. You can define your own lists and discuss lists and anything related in the community forum here Essential requisite to enjoy the service is, of course, querying AirVPN DNS while your system is connected to some VPN server, which is by the way a default setup if you run any of our software.

    I have a reason to believe that M247 is falsifying a few of its server locations which it sells to VPN companies such as AirVPN. Disclaimer: I am not accusing AirVPN of participating in this falsification, I believe that AirVPN staff has the integrity and honesty to only purchase servers in locations they know are correct as advertised. My hypothesis is that AirVPN was merely duped into buying thse falsified locations because M247 claimed that they were real locations and AirVPN did not have any reason to suspect anything to the contrary. I noticed recently that the M247 "Phoenix" location seems to really be located in Los Angeles, M247 "Barcelona" location seems to really be in Madrid, and the M247 "Berlin" location seems to really be in Frankfurt. Traceroute shows identical routes between each of these false locations and the real location they are in, not to mention that neither Phoenix, Barcelona, or Berlin appear on M247's list of locations on their website Disclaimer 2: All of the data below is shown as it was generated, with the only thing being edited is the redaction of my ISP's traceroute hops for protection of my privacy. Exhibit A: "Phoenix" is really Los Angeles.

With near-identical traceroutes, and ping values that don't differ by more than 1-2ms , it is extremely unrealistic that these servers are in the locations they claim to be. If you think my data is wrong/inaccurate, then feel free to repeat my experiment yourself, you will find the same thing. I would like to reiterate that I believe that AirVPN has no part in this falsification and that they have no ill will, I think they were duped/deceived by M247 to believe that the Phoenix, Berlin and Barcelona locations are actually real physical locations M247 has their servers located in. I think after these findings, AirVPN should have a long discussion with M247 staff about this falsification that took place.

    Hello! The current state of play as well as important clarifications. The issue occurs only in those OpenVPN clients linked against OpenSSL 3 and only to some of our users, see below Since 2017, our system generates CRT signed with SHA512 algorithm. Previously they were signed with SHA1. Regeneration of old CRT is not triggered and forced by us automatically, because it would invalidate any previous OVPN configuration file out there and lock out the user who does not follow our forum, notification e-mails etc. @rprimus you have a client CRT (user.crt) dated 2015. You and anybody else using pre-2017 user certificates: please go to your "Client Area" > "Devices" menu, renew your cert/key pair, re-download your OVPN configuration files from the Configuration Generator, use them and you will be fine. (*) The problem has never been caused by the CA certificate. Replacing the CA.crt is not mandatory, it just avoids warning message (that you can safely ignore and has nothing to do with the main issue of this thread) you may meet in Eddie Android edition, Hummingbird and Bluetit. Anyway, now even ca.crt is SHA512 signed, so you will not get anymore the mentioned warning (*) Yellow rows show certificates which use a signature based on a deprecated for security reasons hash algorithm (SHA1). They are still here to ensure backward compatibility, because we can't know whether you still use them in generated profiles. However, future OpenVPN versions might not allow them anymore. Click 'Renew' or 'Delete' to resolve the issue. After that, re-generate profile(s) with our Configuration Generator. If you run our client software Eddie, you just need to log your account out and in again from the main window. Kind regards

    AirVPN vs ProtonVPN.

    With all due respect for an old time customer like you, comparing AirVPN with ExpressVPN is an insult we can't accept. ExpressVPN has always been perfectly aware that one of its executives was an American intelligence operative who helped UAE human rights hostile government in cracking operations. We do agree with Edward Snowden when he says that you must not use ExpressVPN. Incidentally, ExpressVPN is now part of a big group that, throughout the past decade, was an adware based business with shady privacy practices. Please check: https://www.vice.com/en/article/3aq9p5/expressvpn-uae-hacking-project-raven-daniel-gericke https://twitter.com/josephfcox/status/1438127822883729412 https://twitter.com/Snowden/status/1438291654239215619 https://www.theregister.com/2021/09/14/expressvpn_bought_kape/ Kind regards

    Hello! We're very glad to inform you that a server located in Stockholm (SE) has been upgraded: Ain. Server is now connected to a 10 Gbit/s line and port, while the motherboard has been replaced with a more powerful CPU. IP addresses remain the same. You don't need to re-generate configuration files, even if you don't run our software. As usual the server includes load balancing between daemons to squeeze as much bandwidth as possible from the 10 Gbit/s line. The server accepts connections on ports 53, 80, 443, 1194, 2018 UDP and TCP. Just like every other Air server, Ain supports OpenVPN over SSL and OpenVPN over SSH, TLS 1.3 and tls-crypt. 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 the server status as usual in our real time servers monitor: https://airvpn.org/servers/Ain Do not hesitate to contact us for any information or issue.

    [Proposal] [Implemented] OISD

    I'd like to propose adding the (very popular) OISD Blocklist. This list is also used by other free DNS "Adblock" services like Adhole.org, AhaDNS.com, etc. OISD (https://oisd.nl/) OISD is a pre-filtered blocklist consisting of lots of other popular blocklists. Domains which do not resolve from these blocklists are filtered out on a daily basis. OISD is focusing on functionality and not overblocking. License: ? I couldn't find any licensing information on the website. Raw URL: https://dbl.oisd.nl/ or (alternatively) https://hosts.oisd.nl/

    Eddie V2.20.0 suddenly won't connect using Windows 10, 20H2. It starts to connect, then disconnects, then restarts again - all in a continuous loop. Any ideas on a solution? Thanks.

    [Proposal] [Implemented] OISD

    Thanks, Basic and Extra will be included as soon as possible. "Full" is huge (>300k entries the wildcard version), we need to perform some stress test (ensure that it doesn't slow down resolution) before inclusion.

    Hello, Recently I have noticed that it looks like the Phoenix AirVPN servers (Bootes, Chalawan, Indus, Phoenix, Virgo) , Berlin AirVPN Server (Cujam) , and Barcelona AirVPN server (Eridanus) are not actually located where M247 claims they are located, and it appears M247 is misrepresenting the locations of these servers If you go to the status page of any "Phoenix" server for example https://airvpn.org/servers/Bootes/ you will see the latencies to other cities where AirVPN has servers, and it shows 0ms to Los Angeles, that wouldn't be physically possible if the Phoenix servers were truly located in Phoenix. This points to the Phoenix servers truly being hosted in Los Angeles Additionally, on a personal VPS server of mine which is located in Los Angeles, I get less than 1ms latency between my VPS in Los Angeles to the AirVPN "Phoenix" servers, which, again, points to the Phoenix servers truly being in Los Angeles, because this 1ms latency would not be physically possible between Los Angeles and Phoenix And if you go to the status page of the "Berlin" server https://airvpn.org/servers/Cujam/ It shows 0ms latency to Frankfurt, also not physically possible This points to the Berlin servers really being in Frankfurt And if you go to the status page of the "Barcelona" server https://airvpn.org/servers/Eridanus/ It shows 0ms latency to Madrid, again, not physically possible! This points to the Barcelona servers truly being hosted in Madrid M247 may say that if you do a WHOIS lookup on their Phoenix IP block, the description is "M247 Phoenix" but honestly this is not proof at all, as the network admins can set whatever netname and description they want when they're creating the inetnum object in their RIR's database. For additional proof other than the "Berlin" , "Barcelona", and "Phoenix" that Air has from M247, Here is M247's full list of locations according to their website You can see that neither Berlin, Phoenix, or Barcelona is on this list. https://m247.com/services/host/dedicated-servers/ From the website, their locations: Europe: Amsterdam, NL Belgrade, RS Brussels, BE Bucharest, RO Budapest, HU Copenhagen, DK Dublin, IE Frankfurt, DE London, UK Manchester, UK Madrid, ES Milan, IT Oslo, NO Paris, FR Prague, CZ Sofia, BG Stockholm, SE Warsaw, PL Vienna, AT Zurich, CH North America: Dallas, TX, USA Los Angeles, CA, USA Miami, FL, USA New York Metro Area, USA (Secaucus, NJ) Montreal, QC, CA Asia and Middle East: Dubai, UAE Hong Kong, HK Singapore, SG Tokyo, JP Oceania: Sydney, AU Based on this information it is clear to see that M247 is misrepresenting the locations of AirVPN's Phoenix, Berlin, and Barcelona servers, From being a customer of Air for as long as I have, I can tell that the Air staff are honest and they have provided and continue to provide a great and true service, this is extremely evident for example by looking at how AirVPN left France because of the concerning legal framework there, and why AirVPN does not operate in Poland or Italy for similar reasons, even though other VPNs gladly operate services in those countries. It's clear as day to see that AirVPN is not deceptive or untruthful at all, so I am absolutely not accusing Air at all of participating in this misrepresentation, it just seems to me like Air was duped by M247 into buying these servers that are reported to be in a different location than the one they are truly in. So given that the 5 Phoenix AirVPN servers , the 1 Berlin server, and 1 Barcelona server are falsely geolocated, it would be good idea for Staff to replace those servers with ones that are actually in the reported locations, or just change the reported location of those servers in Eddie to reflect the true locations.

    Happy AirVPN power user

    I don't know what to write about... Everything's fine and I love AirVPN. Sounds cheesy but it is what it is. I've been using AirVPN for half a year. Many servers to choose from, very transparent from the user's point of view - something I value. Transparency about server status and an API (admittedly I haven't used it much). From reading the forums I grasped that AirVPN has very strict (legal) criteria for choosing server locations (countries), an approach that is unique across all providers I've seen so far. Yea placing servers in China wouldn't be the best idea or many other more "democratic" as a matter of fact which were ruled out. The config generator is awesome if you're not using their open source client Eddie (bonus points again!) - plenty of flexibility. Configs? Afaik there're some providers out there who still have user/password prompt on each connection, laughable. AirVPN not only properly makes use of certificates (that's how the server knows you are you without asking for credentials) and on top of that allows you to properly distribute different access keys across your devices (in case of theft etc). Lost a device? Revoke access to that single one and done! Port-forwarding support ALONG WITH Dynamic DNS is unparalleled. Sure an advanced user probably could create an ad-hoc DDNS solution for themself, but offering it along the VPN is ingenius. The servers are very stable, the stats currently show a user has been connected since January. I've read comments where other VPNs often force reconnects etc, that just sounds wild to me. Before AirVPN I've been on a private VPN server with 24/7 uptime and that's the quality of service I got used to and wouldn't want to downgrade from (looking at those other VPN providers) The AirVPN forums are a great source of information. The staff cannot be commended enough for responding to concerns and generally being here for discussion. @OpenSourcerer is a damn community hero, this place is unimaginable without him! I myself have contributed in one form or another and will continue to. As a side note to forums: AirVPN appears to have customized the forum software for privacy. I can't assess how far it goes (hopefully "enough"), and it's a far better choice than those completely relying on Reddit - undoubtedly a useful puppet of/for the certain government. The only problem I've had was with initial payment. I bought the 1 month plan and found no clear indications it was still active (because it is a PayPal recurring payment), so before the month expired I bought the 1 year plan. I was quite surprised to see a few days later my access days to have been extended by +31d - the automatic Paypal payment kicked in and I paid a single month extra. Though I like the service so much I decided not to bother with a refund (consider it a donation hehe). You need to login in Paypal to cancel those, I wish this was made clear/er. What's unclear to me was whether/how much info is retained on payment after all the transactions... but to grossly paraphrase an official response: use crypto. Just make sure your mug shot (photo) isn't connected to the coin wallet Roses are red, AirVPN's great.

    AirVPN 11th birthday celebrations

    Hello! Today we're starting AirVPN eleventh birthday celebrations offering special discounts on longer term plans. It seems like it was only yesterday that we celebrated the 10th milestone birthday, and here we are, one year later already. From a two servers service located in a single country providing a handful of Mbit/s, the baby has grown up to a wide infrastructure in 22 countries in four continents, providing now 240,000+ Mbit/s to tens of thousands of people around the world. We still define it as a "baby", but AirVPN is now the oldest VPN in the market which never changed ownership, and it's one of the last that still puts ethics well over profit, a philosophy which has been rewarded by customers and users. 2020 (and 2021 so far) have been harsh years for the mankind but we have no rights to complain too much because AirVPN was only marginally touched by those terrible repercussions which affected many other business sectors in general. In spite of that, we could not maintain our promise to deliver native software for FreeBSD and we apologize for the failure. However, releasing software for FreeBSD, specifically AirVPN Suite, remains one of our goals, so stay tuned. On the other hand, Eddie desktop edition, AirVPN Suite for Linux, Hummingbird for Linux and macOS, and OpenVPN 3 AirVPN library were updated substantially and swiftly. Moreover, Eddie Android edition development has been recently re-opened to provide a new version updated to new requirements and specifications of Android 11 during 2021. Hummingbird was natively released for M1 based Apple Mac systems too, allowing a dramatic performance boost (up to +100% in >100 Mbit/s lines). Behind the scenes, infrastructure had some paramount improvements. The whole network in the Netherlands has been enlarged with additional redundancy and several servers around the world have had hardware upgrades. In Sweden and Switzerland we started operating servers connected to exclusive 10 Gbit/s lines and ports, and we optimized the environment to obtain more bandwidth from the OpenVPN processes. We managed to beat the previous 1.7 Gbit/s barrier. The performance on the customer side has improved and reached new peaks of excellence, as you can see here: https://airvpn.org/forums/topic/48234-speedtest-comparison/?do=findComment&comment=130191 Furthermore, the infrastructure has become fully Wireguard capable and throughout 2021 we will start offering Wireguard connections, in addition to OpenVPN ones, in an hardened environment which mitigates the numerous privacy problems posed by Wireguard. Last but not least we re-started operations in a fourth continent, Oceania, with a new server in New Zealand. All AirVPN applications and libraries are free and open source software released under GPLv3. It's worth quoting literally what we wrote last year for AirVPN birthday: Kind regards and datalove AirVPN Staff

    Reporting this issue as this started today, I get this on three different machines, 2x running 2.20.0, 1x running 2.19.7: AirVPN goes into an endless connect/cancel/re-connect loop, logs state: "Fetch url error:SSL peer certificate or SSH remote key was not OK" Already rebooted modem and router, flushed DNS on all machines, re-installed Eddie, reset Win firewall....did not help. The only way to get AirVPN to connect is to uncheck "Check if the VPN tunnel works" and "Check Air VPN DNS" (and still use Network lock)... Is this a known issue ? Thanks.

    I've had problems with IPv6 error as described and also Network Lock function since upgrading to 2.19.7 on Windows 10 Home. Tried thoroughly uninstalling and downgrading to an older version of Eddie but it didn't improve. Then tried uninstalling Eddie and installing OpenVPN 2.5 instead. Still had errors. Therefore Eddie was not the problem. Something in the log led me to try "Reset Network TCP/IP Stack" which I found at Open VPN's Community Wiki. It fixed my problem. Seems there are other ways to reset Window's network stack if you search for it. Below is taken from the Open VPN Wiki. Good luck! Windows Vista, 7, 8, 10 Search for Command Prompt > Run As Administrator > Enter the following commands one at a time > Restart computer. netsh winsock reset catalog netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

    Wireguard plans

    @Flx The first message was approved by some moderator in the wrong thread, not a big deal. Then we moved the message on its own thread, this one. Then user "wireguard" posted more messages which were all approved by some moderator. @Brainbleach Of course. We were replying to "wireguard" who invites surreptitiously to punish AirVPN because AirVPN uses and develops actively OpenVPN: "Needless to say, investing in AirVPN means investing in OpenVPN, and that's not acceptable to me at this point," . He/she also kept claiming that "it's time to retire OpenVPN" (sic), that OpenVPN is a "truly disgusting hack" (sic) and so on,. showing his/her embarrassing ignorance and lack of good faith. Nothing to do with your messages. Funny how bogus account writers are so eager to become from time to time AirVPN software lead developers, general managers for AirVPN strategies, marketing directors and more. 😀 We wanted to prove beyond any reasonable doubt that his/her claim are unreasonable and based on wrong assumptions and terrible omissions, showing how Wireguard can not replace OpenVPN for a significant percentage of our customers and how our OpenVPN development has been beneficial for many users around the world. That said, we claimed that Wireguard needed to be developed and tested further years ago, so at the time our claim was totally reasonable. We also claimed years ago that the problem was not with CHACHA20 which to the best of nowadays knowledge is a very robust and secure cipher. Now the problems are different because Wireguard is asked to offer something which it was not designed for, i.e. providing some kind of anonymity layer. Such problems include lack of DNS push, lack of dynamic IP address assignment (with subsequent problems with client key-private address static correspondence, a very tough legal problem for us but above all for our customers), need of keeping client real IP address stored in a file. We have resolved them one by one with external software and internal work around. Once the problems are resolved in a robust way, which means testing thoroughly the adopted work-around, we can offer Wireguard, not earlier. Kind regards

    Hello ! Introduction Welcome To AirVPN! This is a guide meant to help new people. Whether you're new to VPNs in general or just new to AirVPN. I've tried to keep it fairly short, by using bullet points & spoiler tags. This hopefully also makes it more readable and less scary. I think AirVPN is a FANTASTIC VPN and while I don't own or have any stake in AirVPN myself, I'm a huge supporter of it. However, it can be quite scary and confusing to use when you first get started, so hopefully my little guide willl help you! This guide also includes links to resources provided by Air and other users, but I don't mean to take credit for these things. So please feel free to scroll to the bottom of this guide! Index: Introduction First Questions Getting Started With AirVPN After Downloading The Eddie Client [includes Troubleshooting tips] AirVPN Guides Section [Look here to find guides about: Security/Torrenting/Port-forwarding/Plex/etc.] Other Noteworthy resources Credits Why I made this guide: AirVPN was said to be very technical and thus hard to use. But since it's such a quality VPN, I don't want that to always be the main bad side to this great service. Therefore, this guide is also a response to this problem, so that newcomers can hopefully feel less overwhelmed about the idea of the air to breathe the real Internet. The Air staff clearly put in a lot of work every day and are extremely knowledgeable people, from all that I've seen. It's just that for newcomers, it can be hard and overwhelming finding all the relevant pieces of information and it can easily be too technical, so I hope my little guide will also be useful in that regard. This is also why, I collect other people's guides and put them in this guide, so that they're easier to find. However, Thank you to AirVPN, Staff and the many knowledgeable members of this community who help out people like myself quite a lot, through their contributions to the site everyday :] Feel free to leave feedback on this guide, both good and bad, if you want to, because I'll happily read it ! First Questions Do I have to be really technical to use this VPN stuff? AirVPN is one of the more technical VPNs out there and this is pretty much its only major drawback, when it gets reviewed. However, it offers unmatched attention to security and privacy. Not all reviews are entirely accurate either, sadly. Which the AirVPN Staff haven't hesitated to remark on though. So in short: No. But if you're new to VPNs in general and not a tech-savvy user, you do have to accept that you might be confused in the start. But this forum is here to help :]. Due to all the marketing and sometimes paid reviews, it can be hard to find out which VPN to trust at all. This is without even getting to the technical features. Air tends to somewhat pride itself on not overselling things however and so on the face of it, AirVPN can seem like it's no match for other, apparently bigger VPNs, but AirVPN has a lot to offer if you take a look. Will I become totally anonymous or completely secure? Please be aware that when using AirVPN or any VPN, while signed in to things such as your e-mail or other online accounts, you might get incorrect notices of being hacked. You have not been hacked most likely, it's just that when services see you log in from several different IP addresses, they get suspicious. Simply keep calm and investigate the issue. No, definitely not. But in terms of steps you can take to reach very high levels of privacy and security, this is one of the best steps you can take. Privacy and security are hard things. To achieve even higher levels involves sorting out things like your operating system, browser, various habits and using networks like Tor, in addition to a VPN like this. Security is hard. It's rarely, if ever, just a one-off solution. Often, security is as much a process, as it is about a single good product, like this VPN. However. just because a VPN doesn't do everything, it doesn't mean it's useless. A lot depends on what you're trying to do/achieve and who your "enemies" are. Yet it should be said, that AirVPN is quite extreme about security. For Air, it's "all or nothing" in many ways. AirVPN is so focused about security, that they even fix issues before they're published! However, VPNs and others technologies are becoming more and more important, as new spy laws like the UK Snoopers Charter & US Rule 41 Amendment crop up. Please check the question "What does AirVPN do to make it safe to use and does it log or track people?" further down, for more details. VPNs A & B have features X & Y, how does AirVPN compare? For this, check out the forum made specifically for that. It's often the case that features from other VPNs are either already included in AirVPN, aren't included because they're unsafe or just aren't as good as they sound. For instance, a rival VPN might say "We offer PPTP and many other secure protocols!", while Air doesn't, because Air knows PPTP is unsafe. Or they might say they offer a "multi-hop" VPN, which may or may not be useful, according to AirVPN Staff. Support for the protocol known as IKEv2 is another example of where Air doesn't support something, but has good reasons for not doing so. As a final example, you will sometimes see competitors speak of their super-secret "camouflage", "4Dstealth" or "hidden" protocols or servers. This is just marketing for gullible customers . But such aforementioned marketing can greatly confuse efforts to compare Airs product with the competitors. So if in doubt, ask the competitor who is offering "stealth"-something, what it is. If I use AirVPN, will I be able to use service XYZ with it? Please be aware that when using AirVPN or any VPN, while signed in to things such as your e-mail or other online accounts, you might get incorrect notices of being hacked. You have not been hacked most likely, it's just that when services see you log in from several different IP addresses, they get suspicious. Simply keep calm and investigate the issue. Please also be aware that it is NOT the main purpose of AirVPN to get access to geo-restricted content because it's a losing battle and Air cannot control how companies such as the BBC and Netflix act. Being able to get access to a site, generally depends on which service you want and which country it's in. AirVPN doesn't have servers in every country. In general, you can get access to everything. Although services like BBC iPlayer and Netflix actively try to block VPNs. Even services as normal as payment processors, such as PayPal don't always make things easy. This means it's not always possible for a VPN provider to do anything about it. But we do have forums to discuss and notify AirVPN on, so that AirVPN can try to solve it as best as it can. But before you post in that forum, make sure to Read This First, as it might help you & will make your posts more helpful to others. AirVPN has a very useful tool called the Route Checking tool. It allows you to test access to a website from ALL AirVPN servers. Just put in a full link in the search field and click the search button. Then press F5 or hit the refresh button in your browser. Green results usually mean there's access; red results mean the opposite. This is useful for seeing if it's only you who has a problem or only the server you're on. As well as which servers don't have a problem, so that you can switch to using those ones instead. It's most important that it's green in the "HTTP" column. There's many different HTTP Codes, so here's a list. VPNs generally slow down your connection a little. But AirVPN is so good that it's still possible to play Multiplayer games through it, without your connection slowing down too much, in my own experience. What does AirVPN do to make it safe to use and does it log or track people? AirVPN isn't just safe because it promises to be so in its marketing. Instead, it backs things up with hard technical specifications and high standards, that you can verify yourself. AirVPN is logless and can't be forced to log surreptitiously, fully supports P2P on all servers & as per #5 ignores all DMCA requests. Remotely-forwarded ports aren't logged either. Here's additional things Air does to increase its security and privacy: AirVPNs infrastructure conforms to a high degree of openness & transparency. This helps show that none of Airs locations are fake, but only bare-metal & lets users compare with one another. AirVPNs encryption standards are military grade and so for all intents and purposes unbreakable. It also only uses the most secure VPN protocol too: OpenVPN. No PPTP/SSTP/L2TP/IKEv2. AirVPN doesn't use any third party tracking on its website, such as Google Analytics or Social buttons, because they leak. Instead, it uses open-source analytics Matomo, which is closed loop. AirVPNs website meets the highest SSLabs security standards: A+. AirVPN takes its mission to fight censorship and manipulation of the Internet extremely seriously. This also means being highly willing to help out journalists and human-rights defenders. AirVPN only uses FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) in its Eddie client. Therefore the software running on your system is not a security "blackbox", but can be independently verified. AirVPNs Eddie client supports a wide selection of protocols. Including SSL and SSH. As well as anonymising services such as Tor; so that you can "partition trust" and need not trust AirVPN. AirVPN fully accepts crypto-currencies. Including to the point where it accepts Bitcoin directly. No middlemen. So if done right, you can use AirVPN with Air knowing nothing about you. AirVPN explains how it doesn't need to inspect or monitor traffic in order to check for breaches of ToS. AirVPN is against security through obscurity, including in its client software Eddie and so shows all the information it can; which leads some users to erroneously think there's logging going on. AirVPN has since then expanded on this point. AirVPN uses in-house support technicians and not outsourced third-party technicians and external packages such as Zendesk. So as with #3, it's closed-loop. No leakage. AirVPN has a strict location policy, so that it doesn't just set up servers in a new, potentially unsafe or questionable, location. One which can't supply the performance required, either. AirVPN has its own DNS servers and "killswitch" feature. With Network Lock on, any accidental loss of connection from Airs servers won't leak anything about you; including WebRTC. AirVPN is run by extremely knowledgeable technical people and not just businessmen. So they're easily able to both explain, defend and attack subjects on a purely technical level. AirVPN supports the auditing of some of the crucial security software that underlies different systems and also supports other projects/groups/services such as Tor, Edri and OpenNIC. AirVPN runs this forum, which can seem like a small thing, but it's actually really important, as it allows for the open sharing of knowledge, providing of technical support and mythbusting. AirVPN already acts as a "multi-hop" VPN and takes many other measures to increase security, such as separate entry & exit IPs, Perfect Forward Secrecy and HMAC SHA1. AirVPN has a strong focus on avoiding marketing fluff and overselling. Which means you know exactly what you're getting and don't need to deal with deceptive use of technical details. AirVPN is highly consistent with staying constantly on top of any security issue. AirVPN is based in Italy and is therefore within the EU. This has a range of other benefits too. That's 20+ ways in which Air has extremely high security "by default". All made nice and easy for you to use. If you want more, there's a simple 3 step guide for that. But seriously, there's always more you can do yourself. When will AirVPN add country or server XYZ? AirVPN Staff do not usually tell the community when a new country or server will be added. They simply add them. So it's easy to miss. The Eddie client will automatically show them. AirVPN frequently adds new countries/locations. This can be seen in the announcement forum, so please try to check this and the Eddie client (if you use it) before asking. Thank you. Requests for a specific location or addition to an existing one, are fine. But demands to know when something will happen, are futile, since AirVPN follows a strict location policy. The technical specifications regarding security/encryption for the Air servers that are used, can be found here. Further, those technologies and standards allows Air to pursue its Mission. Please remember that even if a country you want hasn't been added, you may still be able to get access to the web-content of that country, thanks to Airs micro-routing feature. Here's some old posts regarding different locations, so that you may not need to ask. Please note that some, such as Japan as of 2018 & Austria, were already added: Italian Servers? Japan/Korea Servers? [staff Comment] Russian Servers? Danish Servers? Middle-East/North African Servers? Indian Servers? Panama Servers? Australian/New Zealand Servers? Latvian Servers? French & Belgian Servers?[uPDATE: French Servers Momentarily Withdrawn] Austrian Servers? Central/South American Servers? AirVPN now allows 5 connections per account instead of 3, but is it possible to buy more connections? AirVPN has increased the limit from 3 to 5 connections. Thus it's unlikely to be possible to buy more connections at any point. But you can use a modified router if you still need more than 5. If you change your router firmware(software) to something like DD-WRT or Tomato for instance, you can make all devices on your Wi-Fi/Router go through AirVPN. However running a VPN on a router is quite hardwork for most routers. So you either need high-grade commercial ones or computers like the ZBOX Nano, converted into routers. That ZBOX Nano PC would be excellent for a VPN to run on, as the hardware is very good; even more than the commercial routers. Only savvy users should consider this. Who runs AirVPN & moderates the forums? The Staff account is the Official voice of AirVPN. Private messages cannot be sent to them. Clodo & pj are the most visible AirVPN employees. Clodo is the developer of AirVPNs "Eddie" client software, while pj is a co-founder of AirVPN. Community moderators: zhang888, giganerd and LZ1. Note that we are NOT AirVPN employees, have no access to Air infrastructure and do NOT speak for Air in an official way. Instead, zhang888, giganerd and LZ1 are a part of what the Air Staff call the Air "forum Staff". Note that member profiles can't be accessed by others by default, unless you add them as friends or they made their profile public. Air itself is based in Italy and so that's where their staff will be sourced from. What are some of the "Status" page functions for & how do I use AirVPNs "Micro-routing" feature? The first page you see when you go to the Status page, is an overview of Airs servers & service. Useful for seeing if any server is down or very busy, downloads and how many users there are. The Ping Matrix shows the latency between Air servers and if there's any (severe) packet loss somewhere. No packets = no connection. The Top Users page can help you verify if others are still getting good or bad performance, compared to yourself. The Checking Route page is for seeing if Air servers can or can't connect to a website you select. Unlike the Ping Matrix. There's also the special AirVPN "Micro-routing" service. To use it, simply make sure you connect to Airs servers & DNS. (Automatic when you use Airs Eddie client). Without the micro-routing, if you want to watch French TV for example, you would have to connect to a French server. But with micro-routing, you can connect to ANY Air server and still watch French TV, as long as the TV's website is on the "Website support" list. It's possible to make requests to get sites added to these lists. Anyway, this micro-routing is very very useful ! Because it means that EVEN IF Air takes all French servers offline for some reason, you will still be able to access French content! Is it free and if not, why should I pay for it? AirVPN is not free, but you can get a short trial if you ask nicely. The Trial has unlimited data and full speed. But you can only get a refund if you have used less than 5GB. Free services don't offer many of the very nice features which let you get around website/service blocks. But it can be hard to market these features to non-technical people, because they're not always easy to explain. Yet once you try them, you will appreciate them. AirVPN has quality servers & connections, as well as guarantees a certain speed, with no limits. So it's possible to play multiplayer games through it. Free services often have to exploit their users in order to survive. This is normally done by tracking you, possibly undermining your security and selling your data to 3rd parties. If a free service is leaking your data due to poor practices and technology by accident or selling it on purpose, what's the point in using it then? VPN means Virtual Private Network. Even if a free service doesn't exploit you, you still don't have the same level of security or assurances, because how would a free service pay for that? Real security is hard and costly. Would you rather go through 5 bad free services, risking your security and privacy or would you rather take your privacy and security seriously the first time, for a small fee? If you only need a VPN 1 time, then it's probably not worth it to use a paid service. But if you know you'll need it often, it's worth the investment. Air has a very cheap 3 day plan too though. Free services often have many limits. But AirVPN is logless, allows 5 devices per account, allows P2P and other protocols, has no data/bandwidth limits & very high security. So basically, you need to be able to Trust your provider, yet why would a free service be trustworthy? They don't owe you anything. But a paid one at least does - not that all paid services are great either though. Not all services on the web offer the same level of protection either, whether free or not. Many services, paid & unpaid, lie to you about where they have servers. Fake GeoIP addresses. Since AirVPN isn't free, is it possible to buy a Lifetime subscription, as with other VPNs? Does AirVPN hold sales at all? This question has received its own dedicated topic, so please click the link below All sales related questions are answered in this dedicated thread. Getting Started With AirVPN If you run into a problem with Airs software for some reason, then please make sure to check if there's an experimental version of the Eddie client you can download. Experimental versions aren't always available. How do I start using AirVPN? There's 3 simple steps: Create Account Choose a Plan Choose your setup Creating an account: You don't need a valid e-mail address. The site software, called IPB, just needs the field to be filled with something. Remember that password recovery will NOT work without a valid address. If you can, don't use something which uniquely identifies you. So even if you name your account ninja10834, that's still better than something about your real name, location or even interests. With this account, you can also post on the forums. However in the beginning, you won't be able to post on these forums immediately. This is because a moderator has to make sure that whatever you post, is both genuine and from a person. So when you click the "post" button, your own post will NOT show up immediately; so just be patient, when asking a question. After around 5-10 posts being accepted, your account will increase in level and you will be able to post things immediately, without any supervision. There's 2 names associated with your account. The first is your login name, which cannot be changed and can't be seen by others. You would need to make a new account, to change it. The second name is your forum display name. In my case, it's LZ1. This can be changed by you at any time, but only matters in the forum. NOTE: it's your login name you use for logging into the Eddie software, together with your login password. Choose a plan: At this stage, you pick both how you wish to pay and how much. It's possible to pay in currencies known as "cryptocurrencies". These cryptocurrencies, most famously Bitcoin, have a range of benefits when it comes to things like security and privacy, if used correctly. If you want to pay using a cryptocurrency, there's some guidance on what to do, further down, in the guides section. However if you're just starting out, it's fine if you just use your credit card or whatever method which suits you. It's also possible to ask for a short trial. You can also scroll back up to the "First Questions" section and look for the information on Air's sales, if you want to wait for a discount. After paying, you will be a "Premium User" and will be able to see how many days you have left of your subscription, at the top of the screen, when you're logged into your account. Choose your setup: AirVPN provides a mobile version of its Eddie app for Android. An iOS version is NOT available due to Apple's restrictive policies. This stage is pretty straightforward. Just make sure you select the right versions and hit Download. Your OS: Find out which Windows Operating System you're running or which GNU/Linux you're running. Mac users must use either Mavericks or something newer. Your Architecture: Most will be locked into 64-bit here, as 32-bit is outdated. Your Format: Windows users should select "Installer" & MacOS users select "PKG Package Installer". Ubuntu/Linux users pick according to distro; adding a PPA will enable auto-updates of Eddie. Your User Interface: Most people should pick Graphical UI. Unless you want to run some kind of headless install, as some technical users do. Then click the big blue Download button and follow regular installation procedures. Now you will be downloading the AirVPN software. DONE. No further reading is required from here. Just open Eddie and click "Connect to Recommended Server". Unless you need a guide for something or want to know some of the finer details. This software is called a "client". This "client" is called "Eddie", because that's what AirVPN calls it. So when you hear talk of "Eddie", it's referring to the software you downloaded. If you don't want to use Eddie for some reason, there's ways of getting around it. But for new and casual users, it's recommended that you use it. If normal Installer Formats create problems, you can sometimes fix them by using the portable formats. A portable download is also useful if you want to store Eddie on a USB stick. If the latest Stable or Experimental release doesn't work for you, then you can download an earlier version, by clicking the "Other versions" link under the blue download button. How and where do I manage my AirVPN settings? You do that in the Client Area Some of the most important things in this area include: Configuration Generator Ports Referrals Number 1 is where you automatically generate the files that your VPN needs to work (if you don't use the Eddie Client, such as if you use Android), after you tick some boxes. Number 2 allows you to tell the VPN which "ports" or "virtual doors" to open, which can speed up things such as your Bittorent client (qBittorent, uTorrent, Vuze, Transmission, etc.) Even though it looks confusing, the only thing you actually need to change, is putting the right number in the "Local Port" field. So if your torrent program uses port 7634 for instance, then you put 7634 into the "Local Port" field and simply click the green add button. Then a number will automatically be generated and put into the big white box at the top. All done. Number 3 shows you the link you can share with other people. If they buy an AirVPN plan, you get 20% of what they pay. Then you can use this money to pay for your own plan. What if I need help during the process? If you need help from Air, you can easily contact them. If you're wondering why AirVPN doesn't have "Livechat" or might take a little longer to reply than other providers, then this is why. However you can also just come to these forums. If you can't post yet, then you can read the various guides which exist. In the AirVPN program called Eddie, there's a tab called "logs", which lists various information about what's happening. You can copy this and post it on the forums so we can help. But when you post your logs, MAKE SURE you post them inside "spoiler tags". If you don't use spoiler tags, you will annoy and make things more difficult for everyone, including yourself. I've used untold numbers of spoilers in this guide, as an example. What are logs, where are they and how do I use spoiler tags? When the AirVPN Eddie software is running, it creates a list of what it is doing. What's connecting, when, where, if something went wrong and so on. A log of events. So when you ask for help on these forums, we will often ask about your logs, because without logs, we do NOT know what is happening, in your specific situation . If you open the AirVPN "Eddie" client software, you will see a "Logs" tab. On the top right-hand side of the window, the 2nd button from the top, lets you copy your logs quickly. After copying the logs from Eddie, paste them into your posts when you need help. Do so by typing the short codes necessary; which we call using "Spoiler tags". This makes it much more convenient for everyone; just like this question and answer, is inside a spoiler . Please try to do it, thank you! Is there anything in my AirVPN account I should change? Go to the top-right corner of the screen and click your account username. Then click "My Settngs" in the drop-down box. Under "Profile Privacy", you might wish to un-check the checkbox, if you want others to be able to view your profile when clicking your name. Under the "Notification Options" tab and then under the header "Topics & Posts", check the box which lets you auto-follow things you reply to. This is very useful. Because then you'll get a little notification in the top-right corner, every time someone replies to a thread you made. This makes getting help more convenient. It's also good for following what's happening in threads that you post in. Remember to check the boxes on the right-hand side, so that you can choose if you want to be notified via the forum or via E-mail . You can also enable notifications for when people "like" your posts, since that can be quite encouraging! Under "Profile Settings", you might be curious about who visited your profile. So you can make it show the last 5 visitors. Everything else such as signatures, allowing others to add you as a friend and so on, are up to you. Enjoy! Is there an Experimental or Beta version of the AirVPN Eddie Client I can try? If so, where is it and why would I want to try it? Note that whenever you download the Beta/Experimental Client, you'll always receive the latest one. You can check your version number after you open Eddie and go to its "About" page. There aren't always any Experimental clients to download and new clients are continuously released. So keep an eye on the announcement section, for Beta/Experimental clients. Just because a release is called the "Stable" version, it doesn't mean the Beta/Experimental client is "Unstable". However don't be surprised if you run into issues . You can find the Beta versions [if one is available] on the download page of your OS, under "Other versions": If for some reason an Eddie client doesn't work, try downloading a "portable" version on the OS download page, under "Format". Being Beta/Experimental, you might run into some bugs. However I use the latest all the time, with no problems really. For more information on what features are added and bugs taken away, go straight to the changelog The Beta/Experimental client often includes fixes for bugs which the "Stable" version of Eddie has, as well as various extra features and changes. This helps all platforms. For example, for Windows, a prior Beta release used WFP (Windows Filtering Platform), instead of Windows Firewall, which meant it became easier to use 3rd party security software. 3rd party security software, are things such as Comodo firewall or Avast anti-virus. Things which you install yourself. In addition, it also comes with the latest software updates "out-of-the-box", such as the latest TAP drivers and OpenVPN patches, so you don't have to update them yourself. It may enable some things by default, which a current Stable version requires you to change yourself (as explained in the next section of this guide). By using the Beta, you can also help AirVPN by providing feedback, which means Air can then make things even better . Each Beta release has its own feedback thread. Just remember to describe the problem, tell us which system you use (Linux/Windows/MacOS/etc.), the client version (Go to Eddie client "About" page) and some logs in spoilers! : D. Thanks! After Downloading The Eddie Client Please remember to share your Eddie logs and use spoiler tags, when you need help from the community. How to do so, is answered in the previous section, thank you! What's "Network Lock" & should I use it? Please be aware that using Network Lock with Tor can be contradictory to try. It's not currently planned for. Please also note that it's expected that Eddie turns off Network Lock, when Eddie is shut down. Network Lock in AirVPN, is what many other VPN providers normally call a "killswitch". So this is Airs own "killswitch". Network Lock (NL) is a way for the AirVPN software to force all of your computers network communications through the AirVPN service, so that nothing "leaks out" about your identity. For new users, I don't recommend using it too soon. I recommend waiting a few days and just getting comfortable with the day-to-day running of the software and then using it later. With NL on, your internet connection will stop entirely, if you lose connection to the Air servers. This is great for preventing information from leaking & is a feature, not a bug. Why is this important? Well, I don't want to name & shame other providers, but one poster showed that his last provider leaked his real IP address during server changes. This shouldn't happen. But with NL on, this won't happen to you, because changing servers in Eddie will mean disconnecting from server A to go to server B. Thus the connection is stopped first & then resumed. No leaks. But if you want maximum security right away and aren't afraid of small technical issues, you can start using it right away. It can always be changed back.. How can I test that AirVPN is hiding my IP and DNS addresses correctly? Turning on Network Lock in the Eddie client will protect you from WebRTC leaks. You can use AirVPNs own service called ipleak.net. Make sure it's .net and NOT .com. Since ipleak.net is run by Air, it has now received its own sub-forum, where you can ask questions, give suggestions and receive information on any changes made to ipleak. Un-configured, browsers like Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome will "leak" (show) your real IP address through a technology called "WebRTC". To stop WebRTC, scroll to the bottom of the ipleak page and read the very short and simple instructions on how to fix it. It's not overly technical, don't worry. If you torrent files, there's also a torrent on the same website, which you can download in order to test which IP other torrenters would see if you torrented a real file. It's recommended you use Free & Open Source Software(FOSS). With this client, you can make it bind itself to whichever network adapter is using the VPN, which is convenient, so that it only torrents when using a VPN. I can recommend setting ipleak.net as your browser start page, so that every time you start your browser, you'll quickly be able to see if everything is working as intended. Eddie can't connect or is very slow, what can I do? If none of the below solutions work, then it's time to ask the forums or Air support. In BOTH cases, please supply your logs, as detailed before. Otherwise no one can help you. First, please make sure your client is updated to the latest Stable or Beta release. You can see your version number in Eddie>Top Left Corner Menu>About. Head to download page if not. Please try different protocols, at Eddie>Menu>Preferences>Protocols>Uncheck "Automatic">Select a protocol, such as SSL or TCP 443> Save>re-connect to an Air server. Please try connecting to not just different servers, but different countries too. Proximity to your location does not automatically mean better connections; due to routing technicalities. If you're an online gamer, you may benefit from changing the buffer sizes, as mentioned by Staff. If you're a Linux, MacOS or Windows user and webpages aren't loading fully or there's less than optimum speed, you can try the so-called "mssfix". If it's simply a problem with connecting to airvpn.org, then please try the alternate entry: airvpn.info - note that sometimes Air comes under attack from within and so you get an error page. If Eddie, such as in its Logs, says there's problems with route checking, please refer here for a solution. Note: disabling Preferences>DNS>Check Air DNS can be tried at the same time too. If you enabled Network Lock and can't connect to the web without Eddie turned on, then please disable Network Lock or reset your firewall and/or DNS, as shown in the two posts here. If torrenting speeds are slow, then please remember to port-forward and configure your torrent client correctly. For detailed guides on this, please go to the Guides Section below. For some ISPs, such as Virgin Media, please check the Guides Section below, for specific tutorials on how to optimize speeds. In some cases, especially if you run Air directly on your router, it's possible that your computer hardware isn't new enough to handle the encryption quickly enough. For Windows users, updating or downgrading the TAP adapter may work. But this shouldn't be tried as the first thing, as it's often not necessary now. For Windows users, you can try downloading a program called TCPOptimizer. Which other steps can I take to increase my privacy and security? Using AirVPN with Tor is a strong answer, among many other good ones. Here's a further explanation of how AirVPN & Tor work, when together. There's also many other ways to handle privacy and security on multiple fronts. If you're looking for a technical challenge, you can install pfSense on a very powerful computer, to make it act like a router, so that all devices connected to your Wi-Fi will be covered by the VPN. Why not just use an expensive commercial router? Because even expensive ones struggle to handle the protocol known as "OpenVPN" efficiently enough to give excellent performance. You can change the software & hardware you use & support the organisations which try to make things better; such as the FSF/EFF. If you're a geek or networking enthusiast, you can also check out things such as the Turris Omnia router, which offers very powerful hardware & software.

    New technical specifications

    Hello! VPN DNS and "Assigned IP address" technical specifications just changed. All the changes have been reported in the https://airvpn.org/specs page. The changed section is: Assigned IP Servers support both IPv4 and IPv6 tunnels and are reachable over IPv4 and IPv6 on entry-IP addresses. DNS server address is the same as gateway, in both IPv4 and IPv6 layer. Chosen IPv4 Local Address OpenVPN: 10.{daemon}.*.*, Subnet-Mask: 255.255.255.0 WireGuard: 10.128.0.0/10 Chosen IPv6 Unique Local Address (ULA) OpenVPN: fde6:7a:7d20:{daemon}::/48 WireGuard: fd7d:76ee:e68f:a993::/64 The new sections are: DoH, DoT Every gateway/daemon assigned to you acts as a DNS (port 53), DoH (dns-over-http, port 443), DoT (dns-over-tls, port 853). DoH and DoT don't add any actual benefit, because plain DNS requests are encrypted inside our tunnel anyway. However, users might need it for special configurations. In such cases, use dns.airservers.org (automatically resolved into VPN gateway address). Our DNS returns a NXDOMAIN for "use-application-dns.net", for compatibility reasons. Special resolutions check.airservers.org - Gateway IPv4 and IPv6 addresses exit.airservers.org - Exit-IPv4 and exit-IPv6 addresses use-application-dns.net - NXDOMAIN, for DoH compatibility, ensuring Air DNS will be used (for anti-geolocation features) Special URLs https://check.airservers.org - Info about connected server https://check.airservers.org/api/ - Same as above, in JSON Use https://ipv4.airservers.org or https://ipv6.airservers.org - Same as above, specific IP layer Kind regards and datalove AirVPN Staff

    Server replacement (UK)

    Hello! We inform you that all of our VPN servers in Maidenhead will cease operations on 03 September 2021. They will be replaced by servers in London featuring more modern hardware. Unfortunately, both technical and non-technical reasons force us to leave the current dc in Maidenhead. Servers in London are anyway located just 40 Km from Maidenhead and they will be announced and available in the next days. The new machines will keep the same names in order to support the old FQDN used by OpenVPN client profiles. Since the datacenter seems to have put offline already a server before the natural expiration date, we could put the new servers online before the mentioned 03 September date. When new servers are turned on, older ones with the same name will be disconnected from the infrastructure. This thread will be updated, if necessary, accordingly. The replacement servers are five, while the replaced ones are six. That's because we might be adding in the future another datacenter in UK in a different location. Kind regards AirVPN Staff

    It would be great if the next beta updated Wintun to a newer version than 0.8. There has been significant improvements to it since then but the non standard install method makes it difficult to update independently of Eddie.

    I sampled about 6 different VPN's when I started a Soulseek server. I needed a VPN that supported Port Forwarding. I went with AirVPN because of it's reliability, and have not regretted it yet. Very very rarely has Eddie had issues connecting....maybe 2 time a year it gets hung up and I have to restart it. But otherwise it stays connected and people download from me 24/7.

    Apple Silicon version?

    Bluetit: Developer's Reference Manual

    Hello! We're very glad to inform you that we have just published the Developer's Reference Manual for Bluetit by promind. Bluetit, a core component of the AirVPN-SUITE, is a lightweight D-Bus controlled system daemon providing VPN connectivity through OpenVPN 3 AirVPN. Bluetit exposes a D-Bus interface which can be used by client applications in order to control the daemon and provide full interaction and connectivity with the whole AirVPN infrastructure. The manual covers Bluetit infrastructure and architecture and provides a complete reference for all the AirVPN’s classes on which the suite is based. The goal is to give any developer who wishes to write a Bluetit client, or a tool providing AirVPN inter-connectivity, a complete reference about the internals of both Bluetit daemon and the AirVPN–SUITE C++ classes. The tool to swiftly interact with the AirVPN infrastructure, repeatedly required by multiple AirVPN client developers in the past, is available and fully documented now.

    Eddie Will Not Turn Off

    For anyone still experiencing the issue that Eddie freezes/is unresponsive, a workaround is to NOT minimize Eddie. It seems to crash only when minimized. The Airvpn support team has been advised and should investigate further.

    Stuck with "Checking IPv4"

    Hi, I just downloaded the program, but when I choose a server it gets stuck in "checking IPv4." These are the logs. Anybody knows how to fix this?

    No, the problem is with you unable to follow directions. In the tutorial, the first directive in the "generate AirVPN certificates" section is to enable advanced mode. Have you turned on advanced mode in the config generator?

    Unable to start (No socket)

    Hi guys, I had this issue whenever I shutdown my computer without exiting eddie in a regular way and I hated to need to restart the computer to fix it. Solution for me: Kill the "openvpn.exe" task -> Eddie seems released, can be started normally again and no "no socket" issue Kind regards, Vent

    ANSWERED Canada Servers are not overloaded

    Maybe you already know it. When a country consistently has more than 65-70% allocated (used) bandwidth, we consider the expansion. When a country has consistently more than 90% allocated bandwidth, expansion is mandatory. Currently Canada is around 55% while Sweden less than 50%. However, in Sweden, we have much stronger demand in Stockholm (better peering with various residential ISPs) than Uppsala. If you consider Stockholm as an area of its own, or equivalently Sweden as a country relying essentially on Stockholm, then you have consistently 70% allocated bandwidth. That's why expansion in Stockholm is now under evaluation with higher priority than Canada. Kind regards
