    Hello! Today we're starting AirVPN ninth birthday celebrations! 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 three continents, providing now 230,000+ Mbit/s to tens of thousands of people around the world. Software related development has also been powered up. Eddie Android edition is now a fully mature application which features an exclusive best effort method to prevent traffic leaks and a complete integration with AirVPN. In 2019 AirVPN has also started operating in South America, on top of Asia, Europe and North America, and the infrastructure has grown significantly, counting now on more than 260 bare metal servers, whose traffic is mainly powered by tier1 and tier2 transit providers. AirVPN has also become recently an EFF "Super Major Donor" member. Furthermore, and we're very glad to announce it here publicly for the first time, development for OpenBSD and FreeBSD has started. We are also integrating OpenVPN 3 on new software which will couple Eddie on UNIX-like systems, including Linux, during the second half of 2019. GDPR compliance was already a de facto standard for AirVPN way before the Regulation entered into force, mainly because we don't collect personal data, period. By the way the compliance is now fully formalized (check details in our Privacy Notice and Terms https://airvpn.org/privacy ). AirVPN provides probably the strongest protection to your data, not only personal data but all data, you can find on any service. If you are an AirVPN customer or user, you are probably aware that our service is radically different than any other VPN service you might have met anywhere. No whistles and bells, no marketing fluff, no fake locations, no advertising on mainstream media, a transparent privacy policy, no trackers on the web site or in mobile applications, no bullshit of any kind in our infrastructure to sell your personal data to any personal data merchant, and above all a clear mission which is the very reason which AirVPN operates for. https://airvpn.org/mission Many of you know that when you buy AirVPN service, you not only support yourself and improve your ability to exercise your fundamental rights, but you also support AirVPN mission. However, while AirVPN in itself has flourished, AirVPN mission aims and values related to fundamental rights have experienced, in 2018 and 2019, a grim time. Australia "encryption-busting" monstrous law is fully in force; the European Union has definitively approved the bad Copyright Directive, mandating automated filters, which will unavoidably limit freedom of expression on big boards, and making the first step to undermine the liability exemptions of mere conduits and web publishers alike; new threats to citizens' privacy are becoming real through plans of wide face recognition deployment, indiscriminate DNA databases proposals, more pervasive and efficient profiling (possibly even through AI), and strict cooperation between Internet tech giants and intelligence agencies; the persecution of journalists, publishers and whistleblowers all around the world has reached unprecedented levels, revealing a widespread plan to suppress freedom of the press and freedom of expression even in so called "Western democracies". One of the greatest journalists and publishers of all times, Julian Assange, nominated seven times for the Nobel Peace prize and winner of many journalistic prizes and awards, has been and is prosecuted and persecuted for having merely published the truth about war crimes, corruption, torture and more, with a 100% accuracy, and for having protected his sources as any good investigative journalist does. He has been detained arbitrarily and illegally, as widely ascertained and recognized by the UN. He has been victim of an abominable smear campaign based on ignominious lies and defamation, a campaign aimed to turn the public opinion against him and distract from WikiLeaks publications content exposing war criminals in governments key positions, warmongers, torture maniacs, systematic illegal surveillance, endemic privacy violations and plots to limit and reduce fundamental rights. He is currently detained in solitary confinement 23 hours a day, with no access to books, maximum two visits per month, forbidden in practice to coordinate a defense with his lawyers, in a tiny cell of a maximum security UK prison which has been designed for dangerous murderers and terrorists, while UK will decide whether to extradite him to the USA to face a potential 175 years imprisonment. Whistleblowers like Chelsea Manning, who should be regarded as a hero, as Noam Chomsky, John Pilger, Daniel Ellsberg and other titans of our times pointed out, have been tortured and are still persecuted by the very same criminals whose crimes were exposed. Privacy activists and software developers, like Ola Bini in Ecuador, are imprisoned without charges, simply for having showed friendship to Assange or WikiLeaks, or for having developed software aimed to protect privacy through encryption. And the list can go on and on and on. But make no mistake: the dark times we are living in, the environment of fear and intimidation that various governments are building against the exercise of those fundamental rights which our mission forces us to protect to the best of our abilities, the mounting attacks against "encryption for everyone" and the awareness that enemies of human rights nestle inside government agencies, have not undermined our determination. Quite the opposite: they have convinced us that our service is even more necessary now and we are resolute to do even more. Our mission has been and will be empowered by the ongoing support to projects and NGOs which aim to the protection of privacy, personal data and freedom of expression, now more than ever. We have confirmed our support to Tor and we will progressively add support to champions of freedom of expression and privacy in any way our capacities and abilities will allow us. If you're curious to know something about a series of fortunate events which gave birth to AirVPN, have a look here: https://airvpn.org/aboutus To worthily celebrate AirVPN ninth birthday, we're glad to inform you that starting from now we will offer a 20% discount on all long term plans. Hurry up, this special offer will end on June the 11th, 23:59:59 UTC! Check the new prices here. Kind regards and datalove AirVPN Staff

    OpenVPN 3 development

    Hello! We're very glad to inform you that AirVPN has begun to actively contribute to OpenVPN 3 development. Our first goal has been adding support for ChaCha20 cipher with Poly1305 as authenticator on OpenVPN 3 Data Channel. ChaCha20 is a stream cipher developed by Daniel J. Bernstein which combines strength and remarkable performance. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salsa20#ChaCha20_adoption When compared with AES-GCM, ChaCha20 offers significant computational relief to all AES-NI non supporting processors, such as ARM processors. ARM processors, routinely used on very many tablets, smart phones, media centers, smart TVs and routers, will get great benefits from OpenVPN with ChaCha20. Our tests show that CPU load caused by ChaCha20 on recent ARM 64 bit processors is at least 50% less than AES-256-GCM, on equal terms, which translates into dramatic performance boost and longer battery life (if you have ever tested Wireguard on an ARM based device you know what we mean). OpenVPN 3 is a client library. However, OpenVPN 2.5, which is currently in beta testing and includes all the necessary servers features, supports ChaCha20 on the Data Channel. Therefore, making OpenVPN 3 with ChaCha20 available to our users and allowing a real life test will be a matter of days. We will progressively release beta clients for Android, Linux, OpenBSD and FreeBSD, in this order. We are considering a porting to OpenIndiana as well. Internal alpha testing has concluded successfully. We have already pulled a merge request to OpenVPN 3 main branch, to let the whole community take advantages from our code, and let OpenVPN developers merge the new code into the main branch if they wish so. https://github.com/OpenVPN/openvpn3/pull/78 Implementation has been designed, developed and programmed for AirVPN by ProMIND, who is also Eddie Android edition developer. Stay tuned, more will come! UPDATE: https://airvpn.org/forums/topic/44069-openvpn-3-development-by-airvpn/ The above linked topic is now the central thread to discuss anything related to OpenVPN 3 development and testing.

    Hello! We inform you that we have started contributions to Chelsea Manning's legal fund. We are proud to contribute to it but not "glad", meaning that in a really democratic and free country Chelsea Manning would not be detained indefinitely for her refusal to testify before a grand-jury (*) in matters that she exhaustively treated before a court martial, and would not need a legal fund at all by now. (*) A grand jury means that the public is not allowed entry: the hearings are held in secret She disclosed nearly 750,000 military and diplomatic documents to WikiLeaks revealing, amongst many other things, war crimes. I will not participate in a secret process that I morally object to, particularly one that has been used to entrap and persecute activists for protected political speech. Chelsea Manning Manning should be regarded as a hero. [...] doing what an honest, decent citizen should be doing: letting your population know what the government, the people who rule you are doing. They want to keep it secret of course.

    Hi Mikeyy, thanks to your excellent manual I've setup VPN on my DS. The VPN started, but nothing is routed over it. As a test I downloaded something via a newsserver with Downloadstation. But according to the Network Interface the amount of sent and received bytes stays at zero. And in my AirVPN the traffic also stays at 12/13 Kb received/sent. Any idea? p.s. I am on DSM 6.1 beta with active airvpn membership. During install there was no option to compress data on the VPN. I still can connect to the webinterface of my DS without implementing 3.1.

    OpenVPN 3 development by AirVPN

    Hello! We are very glad to inform you that our OpenVPN 3 development is progressing swiftly. Today we implemented directive ncp-disable which was still unsupported in OpenVPN 3. https://github.com/AirVPN/openvpn3 The directive is instrumental to allow clients Data Channel cipher free selection between those available on server, when ncp-ciphers is declared on server side, and keep at the same time total backward compatibility. Since when we implemented ChaCha20-Poly1305 https://airvpn.org/forums/topic/43850-openvpn-3-development/ on OpenVPN 3 Data Channel, "ncp-disable" has become a priority to provide servers and clients with maximum flexibility. We can therefore leave total freedom to clients to pick between AES-GCM, AES-CBC and ChaCha20 while preserving full backward compatibility. Clients with AES-NI supporting processors will prefer AES, while clients running on CPUs without AES-NI, for example most ARM CPUs, will of course tend to prefer ChaCha20. We are working hard to bring you first and foremost a new Eddie Android edition beta version to let you test ChaCha20-Poly1305 on your Android devices as soon as possible. All internal tests both with ChaCha20 and ncp-disable have been fully successful so far. Fingers crossed, maybe you will see a beta release as early as next week. https://github.com/AirVPN/openvpn3 Changelog 3.3 AirVPN - Release date: 13 July 2019 by ProMIND - [ProMIND] [2019/06/02] Forked master openvpn3 repository 3.2 (qa:d87f5bbc04) - [ProMIND] [2019/06/06] Implemented CHACHA20-POLY1305 cipher for both control and data channels - [ProMIND] {2019/07/10] Implemented ncp-disable profile option Kind regards and datalove AirVPN Staff

    Hi Mikeyy, sorry for the delay. Before your answer I did figure out a restart myself. And that got things going. But my forum message was still not approved, so I couldn't alter it. So in the end I managed to download stuff via DS Get via VPN. But all of my webservices were not reachable anymore. I read about that before hand, but thought a bit too optimisticly. After reading up on it, I got scared whether I would be able to have a VPN and run my webservices at the same time. I would need passthrough of: -torrents -IMAP -SMTP -POP3 -webinterface of synology To be honest I am afraid that I am not capable enough to make all those things work.

    Tried restarting DS? I don't use DSM 6.1, so I wouldn't know if something changed. But sometimes same thing happens to me on 6.0, VPN is up, but you can't reach anything. Not sure if it's DSM problem or AirVPN problem, but DS reboot usually fix it.

    Coming home to Air

    I've just returned to Air after not using any vpn for a few years. The speeds are faster than they used to be, despite me being on a much slower local adsl line than before. Eddie .deb works great and is even better than before! And I see familiar faces on the forum... it just feels like coming home 💟 A big thank you Air team and all who help here on the forum.

    ANSWERED AirVPN’s Twitter…

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

    Sao Paulo is as cental America as you can get. "Lite South" America would be something like Mexico/Panama in where it would be better getting a server in Miami instead, for both ping and bandwidth related performance. Geographical center: Panama/Mexico/Costa Rica - Most providers are limited to lease a shared 100mbit connection per customer. This is because they have max 5-10Gbit per datacenter or less. Because of that, their main peering happens to be with U.S. providers, so see the sentence above. "Southern South": Rest of the countries are not going to happen - Peru, Chile, Argentina. No sufficient datacenters to offer quality bandwidth for a reasonable price. Wholesale of 1Gbit almost unspoken of. Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay - the same reasons as above, + add at least 5 more years for their availability after the countries above. Most providers in those areas offer only shaped 10Mbit traffic (yes, in 2019) with a burstable option to 100Mbit with a very high premium. Those providers mostly offer local data as well as CDN to companies like Akamai, Cloudflare, Google which is their most profitable way of operation. Other Caribbean islands or countries with less than 5M residents - can be totally dismissed. Not a valid option even for large "Big 10" companies to operate. An exotic new location will not give you the privacy/performance you would probably assume from a service like Air. So this is a strategic point which is totally transparent and provable. Don't make other providers who sell fake GeoIP locations (this is possible and actually much cheaper) or sell VPS/Cloud connectivity with limited 100Mbit b/w make your decision here, test your own locations with your maximum speed before you buy a VPN service. And always remember: If AirVPN ever wanted to cross that grey area, there would probably be 50 available countries now. Or maybe 100. This is not an ethical way to do (VPN) business. Not flagging any competitors here since we all know who they are. // Finding even a single provider in South America with apparently enough bandwidth and acceptable prices (probably because they have more than utilized) is not an easy task by it's own. Right now no other country can probably overcome Brazil by price/performance, where even 3 years ago the situation was nearly as same as above. Same things happen is East Asia as well, where I am more native, and is directly linked to the country GDP. (The case has some exceptions in countries like Ukraine, Romania) because they are strategically and historically big EU transit points where AirVPN operates. But largely if it costs more than an average monthly salary to get a 100mbit connectivity, this country cannot be generally considered as a valid location.

    Take a look at 3rd point in my tutorial. After you do that, you need to forward ports on your router, but if that worked before, I guess you already forwarded your ports. Then you only need to connect to your REAL IP (IP given by your ISP), not AirVPN IP address and it will work.

    I think I saw that error some time ago, when I was using 1 year or more old certificates for AirVPN. Did you upgrade your DSM to latest 6+ version? Did you get new certificates and ovpn file from airvpn? Be sure to imput them at correct place. Is your AirVPN membership active? If you are using DSM <6 (5.2, 5.1, 5.0, 4...) then you need to ssh and copy certificates and keys manually. Just delete VPN from Synology interface, try restart, and do everything from beginning. I see what you mean. That never happened to me. Script always starts VPN if it's not started, but I managed to reproduce it by just using those variables in script, without anything else. Thank you for find, I just moved those variables further down to one of IFs, so they will be called only when VPN is up for sure. Hope that solves it for you also.
  38. 4 points
    Wow, good idea! Will add it. Not sure why you added other part? If VPN is off, current script will start it (when cronjob runs). If VPN is ON, but it's in error state (not letting traffic trough) it will kill VPN and start it again. EDIT: Added your contribution to tutorial. Changed some parts of tutorial. You no longer need to copy script to /usr/ folder. It's better if it stays in shared folder of your choice since there it will survive system upgrades.

    Assuming you mean Virgin Media UK. How did you determine this? Why would they mess with DNS to the web site rather than routing to the actual OpenVPN servers? Its a nice web site but not even that important to AirVPN users who only actually need it for initial setup. This is a curiosity only question as the solution of using an alternative DNS doesn't seem to have any downsides.

    AirVPN becomes an EFF Super Major Donor

    @giganerd Hello! It's an interesting consideration. In nowadays world some choices are hard, either because you do not have enough evidence or because astroturfing and other operations are ongoing. At some point you must make a decision. We have carefully evaluated EFF operations especially on legal and law procedural grounds, software releases and informative/educational articles, and we have found an outstanding work. We do not believe that Google huge sponsoring amount might impair EFF operations in the field of privacy (which is in our opinion a threat to Google current model and even more in the growing practical AI applications), at least not in the near future, and we hope that this is not the beginning of a "capture by sponsorship" (something which sinisterly reminds "regulatory capture" by big companies, although the means are different) which happened multiple times, for example with newspapers and publishers: I am a giant company and progressively buy your newspaper spaces for my ads, until you depend on me economically; then one day I tell you "do not publish that, rather publish this, or else I will withdraw all of my ads from one day to another". Take Tor, as an additional example. It's no secret that we have significantly supported Tor and the Tor Project in the last years. However, the Tor Project has been funded almost entirely by the former Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG, now USAGM), the US Navy and the US Department of State bureau for Human Rights for years. Is this enough reason to drop Tor and not use it anymore? No, because we have total lack of substantial evidence about backdoors to favor any the mentioned agencies or anybody else, and that a person that should be above any suspect under this context (Edward Snowden) recommends Tor usage. Eyes must always remain wide open but at the same time if you get lost in a network of theories and you see conspirators everywhere you risk to get stuck and never act. Kind regards

    What Is This Forum For?

    Hello! This sub-forum hasn't seen any activity since its creation and perhaps it's because most don't understand the purpose of it and therefore how to contribute. AirVPN supports FOSS software because compared to the closed world of proprietary software, it's more harmonious with AirVPNs Mission. An example of FOSS is AirVPNs Eddie client. The AirVPN Mirrors Project FOSS projects can be difficult to run, because they're often done on a volunteer and therefore free basis. So they often have little or no income to pay for the upkeep of servers/mirrors, to distribute their potentially fantastic and important work. Thus the Mirrors Project allows the community to suggest projects that AirVPN will support. If granted, AirVPN will cover the cost of X amount of "mirrors". Which allow the software in question to be downloaded. In addition, there can also be some benefits in terms of reliability, security, ease of access and general anti-censorship for the supported project. Which are desirable things for AirVPNs Mission. To see all of the projects AirVPN currently supports, please visit the Mission page. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask .

    UK - Virgin

    We cross-checked the reports of dozens of our customers with Virgin Media UK, asking them to resolve "airvpn.org" on two of Virgin DNS servers. Since all the reports matched exactly throughout one year, we can safely assume that the reports are reliable. It is also worth mentioning that DNS poisoning of airvpn.org is intermittent, and when contacted directly about the issue, Virgin Media responded to us that it was a technical problem, totally unintentional. How are we supposed to know? All in all even the cyber workers of the government of China are interested in our web site, not only with DNS poisoning but also IP blocking. Who knows, maybe it's really just an obscure technical error that re-occurs periodically. Kind regards
