    I'm not the expert here, but jumping in anyway... It's not frequent. I've watched the US servers for a year and a half or so, and I think I've seen one retirement. It caused some squawking from users who were using it as their all-the-time server. I believe I also remember Air bailing out of France awhile back over adverse changes to the legal/privacy privacy. My impression is that retirement is more likely to be over serious datacenter issues or the legal environment deteriorating re privacy and not just because usage is down. Enough users choose the load-balancing domains like us3.vpn.airdns.org to keep all servers reasonably busy. And server removal is announced weeks ahead of time here on the website. If you want to experience frequent arbitrary server removal with no notice though, there's always NordVPN. I've seen a list of two dozen working servers become a list of no working servers in under two years, all done silently.

    @Staff Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed and informative reply. It is much appreciated. I'm unfortunately starting to think that Hummingbird just isn't ready to be used as a drop-in replacement for OpenVPN -- at least on my system. Perhaps that was never your intention and I simply misread the situation. While I am sure it is a perfectly good back-end for Eddie, I am less confident about its capabilities as a standalone VPN client for a number of reasons. First, as you yourself have noted, the profile parser still looks to be "work in progress" that seems not to have been fully tested. Perhaps the OpenVPN 3 developers will get around to fixing the persist-tun problem but the issue as I see it is that you have committed to using OpenVPN 3 code that is arguably not yet ready for production use -- and the OpenVPN devs are probably under little pressure to get things fixed asap. If you are going to have to wait for fixes to arrive from upstream developers, that might not be a comfortable position to be in. I was also a little disappointed to see that up and down scripts are not supported in Hummingbird (or, it would seem, in OpenVPN 3). This is not noted in the documentation. I was also rather surprised to see that the system log shows further OpenVPN directives that are being "unused", including persist-key and auth-nocache, and this behaviour is, once again, undocumented. If you are going to diverge from OpenVPN 2.5 methods of working, which is what most of us will be familiar with, you really do need to highlight the differences more clearly in the documentation. I have reluctantly come to the conclusion that I am not yet ready to use Hummingbird "live". It has some great innovations, such as DNS handling and firewalling, but I believe that a security product needs to be well tested and built on solid foundations. I am not confident that either of these requirements is currently being met. I wish you every success with the future development of your suite of programs and I will no doubt revisit them at some point in the future.

    Hello! We're glad to inform you that AirVPN Suite 1.1.0 RC 4 is now available. Download URLs have been updated accordingly in this thread first message. Please check the changelog for a full list of important changes, which in this last time frame between RC3 and RC4 have been particularly numerous. The latest problems found by our internal and public testers have been reproduced and addressed. Thank you all, you brought to light various, elusive bugs which slipped unnoticed through all the previous testing phases. AirVPN Suite 1.1.0 RC 4 includes new OpenVPN AirVPN library 3.7 fixing a couple of issues coming from the main branch causing the library to crash under the conditions found by our community testers and reported in this thread: thank you all! Another issue in the library was the confusion between "proto tcp-client" and "proto tcp" in OpeNVPN 3 main branch, which caused a critical problem as reported in this thread by testers. OpenVPN AirVPN 3.7 is now 103 commits ahead of the main branch, featuring several, new important features and very many bug fixes. https://github.com/AirVPN/openvpn3-airvpn Please keep testing RC 4!

    iPadOS: OpenVPN & iTorrent

    Disable NAT-PMP and UPnP. I think it opened the port on your ISP router. Also disable uTP, it has a tendency to break throughput.

    And you win !!! I have created the /usr/lib/systemd/system/ and put the file eddie-elevated.service inside it and it works ! So the command for debian 10 is : sudo mkdir /usr/lib/systemd/system/ curl -sSfL https://eddie.website/temp/eddie-elevated.service | sudo tee /usr/lib/systemd/system/eddie-elevated.service && sudo systemctl daemon-reload  Thanks for the help M. OpenSourcerer !

    Depends on the systemd config of your distribution. Generally, I'd say it might do the trick, but it's better to check the manual page of systemd.unit beforehand to see if there are special paths for unit files. Does /etc/systemd/system/ exist? If yes, you could use that.

    Not much changed today. There's also some talk about problems with BT but much less than Virgin. No or very little info about other providers as far as I remember, but do try searching for providers' names around here.

    $ sudo chown root:root /usr/sbin/nscd There is nothing to fix on Eddie's side. Ah, wait, I see it, you're right. Eddie should instead simply check if it's executable or something.

    Noteworthy, partly as a replacement.

    I'm not sure if it's a dependency issue because it's not exclusive to Debian. Here's a possible workaround, if not solution:

    Linux: AirVPN Suite 1.1.0 beta available

    @air2157 Hello! We confirm that Hummingbird does not enforce restrictions on profile name and that OpenVPN 3 enforces restriction on the suffix of the file name. We managed to reproduce the issue easily, even when a merge is not requested. The merge.hpp class has been modified very recently (25 days ago) and that might perhaps explain why the problem has never been reported in years. We will seriously consider to remove this limitation. Kind regards

    I would rather to keep AirVPN as a underdog because they been consistent with their excellent services. The issues is that when people start to "advertise", the VPN provider will become too popular and will led to subpar quality of services or the resources stretched too thin. This been a case for many VPN providers (NordVPN, ExpressVPN, PIA, etc), truly you can see the effect on NordVPN after their YouTube ad-explosion few years ago. If people naturally come to VPN provider, then it will be easier for the providers to expands their services (or not if VPN providers get greedy). I would rather people to come to AirVPN naturally (like word-of-mouth) than dealing with huge volume of new users daily. This is the reason why I don't advertise AirVPN.

    Apple Silicon version?

    @c69c7kfrv48fuJ8Re44C Hello! Exactly. Maybe it's worth pointing out even in this thread that we released highly optimized Hummingbird for Apple M1 machines. If you have more than 100 Mbit/s available, you should see around 100% performance boost when compared against OpenVPN. In the download page: https://airvpn.org/macos/hummingbird/ you can clearly identify the Intel and the M1 version. Kind regards
