  1. @traveller Hello! Yes, both Hummingbird and Eddie are free and open source software by AirVPN. They are available for Mac too. They both enforce "Network Lock" by using pf (pre-installed by default on macOS by Apple) so you don't have to worry about traffic leaks outside the VPN tunnel. Please see here: https://airvpn.org/macos Kind regards
  2. Hello! We inform you that the following servers located in the Netherlands: Anser Comae Elnath Jabbah Luhman Sheliak are having their IP addresses changed as a necessary datacenter restructuring. What you need to do If you run Eddie (all desktop and Android editions), data will be updated automatically. No action is required. If you have OpenVPN profiles pointing to those servers qualified domain names, everything will be updated automatically. No action is required. If you have OpenVPN profiles pointing directly to those servers IP addresses, you will necessarily have to re-generate such profiles. Kind regards AirVPN Staff
  3. Hello! More about macOS Big Sur, Eddie and Hummingbird. Eddie and Hummingbird enforce Network Lock through pf rules. The mentioned problem is that kernel extensions are deprecated, and the new API NetworkExtensions includes exceptions to filtering rules which allow 56 Apple apps and services to bypass any filtering rule enforced via the API (which is quite atrocious and says a lot about Apple's respect toward its customers, but that's how it is). However, pf is the system firewall which is autonomous from NetworkExtensions API and its exceptions. Therefore Eddie and Hummingbird Network Lock are working fine just as usual. Note that the NetworkExtensions exceptions were active even in Catalina. However, nobody noticed them because third-party firewalls bypassed them by relying on kernel extensions (kexts). Now that kexts don't work well anymore, the problem has exploded, but as usual you are safe with AirVPN Network Lock both in Eddie and Hummingbird. Kind regards
  4. Hello! Of course, the problem has nothing to do with Eddie Network Lock. Eddie and Hummingbird enforce Network Lock thorugh pf rules. The mentioned problem is that kernel extensions are deprecated, and the new API NetworkExtensions includes exceptions to filtering rules which allow 56 Apple apps and services to bypass any filtering rule enforced via the API. That's quite atrocious and says a lot about Apple's respect toward its customers, but that's how it is.

  5. @X22Y55Zbc Hello and thank you!! You are free to buy any coupon quantity, but you can't provide a single coupon with multiple amounts. It's not a big deal because for your purpose you can buy two or more credit coupons and redeem them when you buy a plan in our "Buy" page. There, you will see a "Do you have a coupon code?" field in the upper section, where you can enter each coupon one by one, one after the other, and redeem all of them on a single purchase. The total amount of all coupons will be credited to the account that redeemed them. Such account can use all of its credit while checking out by clicking the proper button which appears on the checkout page. If in doubt or for any additional information please do not hesitate to open a ticket! Kind regards
  6. @183aTr78f9o Hello! it looks like a legitimate procedure to connect your machine at boot to some VPN server We can't see any peculiar problem with it. Kind regards
  7. @lostagain Hello! Eddie Android edition does not send any data to Google, so no reasons to worry about that. It also "contains" no trackers at all as you can verify here: https://reports.exodus-privacy.eu.org/en/reports/org.airvpn.eddie/latest/ Furthermore, you are not obliged to download Eddie from the Play Store, because we offer the APK through a direct download from our web sites, as you must already know. https://airvpn.org/forums/topic/29660-using-airvpn-with-eddie-client-for-android/ It's true, however, that you can't know whether some Android process by Google or the manufacturer of your device bypasses the VPN tunnel, as it happens in iOS with Apple services. However, it would be a common problem to all VPN apps and protocols, not Eddie specific. Kind regards
  8. @183aTr78f9o Thank you, we will be looking forward to hearing about your tests! Yes, thank you, we fixed it as well as an atrocious "the your computer", we apologize. 😅 Kind regards
  9. @pjnsmb Hello and thank you for your tests! It seems that Bluetit started properly at boot, but the error "IPv6 is not available in this system" may be a bug, perhaps the same bug detected by @OpenSourcerer Developers are aware of the issue and should resolve it very soon. Can you please tell us your Linux distribution name and version? As a side note, why running Goldcrest with superuser privileges? By doing so you might jeopardize a portion of the security model provided by the client-daemon architecture. You can run Goldcrest without root privileges, by any user in group airvpn Kind regards
  10. @clebretonfr Hello! We might, but it's not planned for the current version, we're sorry. Those options must be approached with care because, as you probably know, they are an attack surface remarkable enlargement for a library and a daemon, as they allow execution of external scripts and binaries. As usual external execution of anything by a daemon must be minimized. We could consider a surrogate implementation into the client (Goldcrest at the moment) so that the external binary or script runs with the privileges of the user running the client. up and down directives are comfortable for very many purposes, hands down. Kind regards
  11. Hello! We're glad to know it! Maybe you mean that you have added a specific user to group airvpn ? If so: yes, the superuser decides who can access Bluetit (via Goldcrest, in this case) by adding any user to that group. It can be done even during the installation since the script will ask you about that. Of course you can later modify your choices by adding and removing users to/from airvpn group. Therefore you, the superuser, can decide whether users authorized to access Goldcrest can also gain other privileges or not, for additional security. If that was not what you meant, please feel free to elaborate. Kind regards
  12. @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
  13. @wireguard User "wireguard" is not an account with a valid AirVPN plan If you really wanted to show your support to AirVPN and prove that you are a customer, you would have written from an account with a valid plan. In reality, accounts like "wireguard" seem to be created with the only purpose to pump something and defame something else. From now on, write only from an account that has valid plan, to show that you are in good faith. Our plans about putting Wireguard into production in the near future have been published with a lot of details, albeit without a precise release date (and we have thoroughly explained why), so we will not write again for the nth time about them. About performance, please provide details as we do frequently. Currently we outperform Wireguard with our setup in AES-NI supporting systems, as you can see from our and our customers' tests, while Wireguard can outperform OpenVPN in CHACHA20 in non-AES-NI supporting systems. . When we put Wireguard into production, OpenVPN will stay, so investing in our own OpenVPN development is perfectly fine. Just a few reasons that make OpenVPN superior to Wireguard for many, different needs: it's faster than Wireguard in AES-NI supporting systems when it uses AES. Have a look here! it can be connected over stunnel, SSH, SOCKS5 and HTTP proxies, and Tor swiftly even for the above reason, for an ISP it's not so easy to block OpenVPN, while it's trivial to block Wireguard it supports TCP it supports dynamic IP address assignment it supports DNS push it does not hold in a file your real IP address when a connection is closed a significant part of our customers will not be able to use Wireguard effectively, simply because UDP is totally blocked in their countries or by their ISPs UDP blocking and heavy shaping are becoming more and more widespread among mobile ISPs, making Wireguard slower than OpenVPN in TCP even in mobile devices, or not working at all in mobility About Torvalds and Linux kernel, you only tell a part of the story. Wireguard was first put in some Linux kernel line when Wireguard was still in beta testing and no serious audit was performed, and not put in a kernel milestone release. A further note about battery draining you mentioned in one of your previous messages: our app Eddie Android edition and Wireguard, when used with the SAME bandwidth and the SAME cipher (CHACHA20-POLY1305), consume battery approximately in the same way, so that's yet another inessential point that does not support your arguments and show once more that our investments have been wise. Finally, let's spread a veil on your embarrassing considerations on ciphers, security, privacy and NSA. Let's underline only that CHACHA20.-POLY1305 is very strong, the cipher algorithm in itself (if implemented correctly) is not a Wireguard problem in any way. It would be a reason of deep concern if Wireguard needed OpenVPN defamation to convince us that it's a good software. Unfortunately various bogus accounts have been created with such assumption and purpose, and the hidden agenda is no more hidden. Kind regards
  14. @sooprtruffaut Hello and thank you! Watch out! Source code is not available during beta testing. As usual we will make it available with the stable release. Raspberry Pi OS 64 bit actually has old libraries and the suite will not run in it, we're sorry. When Raspberry OS 64 bit beta testing is over, we plan to support it as well. Kind regards
  15. @colorman Hello! For that you will need to wait for the client software with a Qt based GUI (Firecrest) which will interact with Bluetit as well, or the ncurses based TUI of Goldcrest will be fine for you, perhaps. Stay tuned. Kind regards
