  1. @lindaburger Hello! We apologize for any inconvenience, it was a temporary problem on our side. Can you please try again now? [EDIT] IMPORTANT You might still have a JavaScript script causing the problem cached in the browser: make sure to delete or refresh (usually hit F5 on the web site page) your browser's cache if you still don't see "Download" button. Kind regards
  2. @Maggie144+ Hello and thank you! Yes, of course: from Eddie's main window select "Preferences" > "Advanced" tick "Use Hummingbird if available" click "Save" copy Hummingbird binary file in a directory included in the commands path (you will need root privileges to do so) Re-start Eddie to apply the changes and use Hummingbird via Eddie. Kind regards
  3. @eburom Hello! Yes, exactly. Kind regards
  4. Hello! We're very glad to inform you that we have just released Hummingbird 1.1.0 beta 1, featuring: SystemV-style init support for Linux update to the latest OpenVPN3-AirVPN and asio libraries Hummingbird is AirVPN's free and open source OpenVPN 3 client based on AirVPN's OpenVPN 3 library fork. Hummingbird is available for: Linux x86-64 Linux ARM 32 (example: Raspbian for Raspberry Pi) Linux ARM 64 macOS (Mojave or higher version required) For a thorough Hummingbird overview please consult https://airvpn.org/hummingbird/readme/ Hummingbird 1.1.0 adds support to Linux systems based on SystemV-style init https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Init#SYSV, while the previous versions supported Linux systemd based systems only. Therefore, we gladly achieve compatibility with 35 additional Linux distributions: https://distrowatch.com/search.php?ostype=All&category=All&origin=All&basedon=All&notbasedon=None&desktop=All&architecture=All&package=All&rolling=All&isosize=All&netinstall=All&language=All&defaultinit=SysV&status=Active#simple We think it's important to support Init Freedom: https://devuan.org/os/init-freedom because systemd is POSIX incompatible and because, as the UNIX Veteran Admin collective noticed in 2014 when they announced a Debian fork: This situation prospects a lock in systemd dependencies which is de-facto threatening freedom of development and has serious consequences for Debian, its upstream and its downstream. Download URLs follow.

  5. @hawkflights Hello! Excellent. Can you please report IPv6 problems you still experience, at your convenience? Kind regards
  6. @mith_y2k Hello! On top of what @eburom correctly pointed out, please take care to add option --ncp-disable, otherwise the server will enforce its chosen cipher through ncp, i.e. AES-256-GCM. In the USA, we support CHACHA20-POLY1305 in a Dallas server, Chamaeleon, so you will need to generate a specific configuration for that server. In the web site servers monitor https://airvpn.org/status you can find (in yellow) all the servers running OpenVPN 2.5 and supporting CHACHA20-POLY1305 on the Data Channel. Kind regards
  7. Hello! We updated right now the footer and specs page with the new address. There are some points where our CMS still redirects to SSL version, we are working to fix all of them, please be patient. Kind regards
  8. @HannaForest @philips @giganerd Hello! We made a Onion v3 address. The hidden service is provided by a dedicated server through http (no certificate warning), and we added HTTP-header "onion-location" that recommends the .onion version. Kind regards
  9. @Veep Peep Hello! Try to delete file default.profile while Eddie is not running, then re-run Eddie. Looking at the log you can see the location of that file, it is shown in the initial log entries. Kind regards
  10. Hello! We're very glad to inform you that a new 1 Gbit/s server located in Vienna (AT) is available: Beemim. 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 "second generation" Air server, Beemim supports OpenVPN over SSL and OpenVPN over SSH, TLS 1.2 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/Beemim/ Do not hesitate to contact us for any information or issue. Kind regards and datalove AirVPN Team
  11. Hello! The configuration looks almost fine. Just enable "DHT" and "Peer Exchange". Kind regards
  12. Hello! We're glad to inform you that Hummingbird 1.0.3 has just been released. Hummingbird is a free and open source software by AirVPN for: Linux x86-64 Linux ARM 32 (example: Raspbian for Raspberry Pi) Linux ARM 64 macOS (Mojave or higher version required) - please do not miss important notes on macOS below based on OpenVPN3-AirVPN 3.6.4 library supporting CHACHA20-POLY1305 cipher on OpenVPN Data Channel and Control Channel. Hummingbird is very fast and has a tiny RAM footprint. AES-CBC and AES-GCM are supported as well. Version 1.0.3 uses OpenVPN3-AirVPN 3.6.4 library which had major modifications: IPv6 compatibility has been improved override logic has been improved a critical bug related to a main branch regression for TCP connections has been fixed Important: if you build Hummingbird please make sure to align to AirVPN library 3.6.4. You can't build Hummigbird 1.0.3 with library versions older than 3.6.4. Hummingbird is not aimed to Android but you can have CHACHA20-POLY1305 on Android too: please run our software Eddie Android edition, which uses our OpenVPN3-AirVPN library. Important notes for macOS users From now on we provide both a notarized version and a non-notarized version of Hummingbird for macOS. The notarized version is available essentially for those users who required it, but it is not recommended. The notarized version will run without blocks by Apple's Gatekeeper, but will let Apple correlate your real IP address, Apple ID and other data potentially disclosing your identity to the fact that you run, and when you did it for the first time, an application by AirVPN. If that's not acceptable for you, just download the tarball package .tar.gz (it is NOT notarized and NOT signed with our Apple developer ID on purpose) and include it in the exceptions to run non-notarized programs. In the future that could be no more allowed, but at the moment it is. For a more thorough explanations on important privacy issues caused by Apple and notarization please see for example here https://lapcatsoftware.com/articles/notarization-privacy.html and here https://lapcatsoftware.com/articles/catalina-executables.html Notes for Linux users x86-64 version requires a reasonably recent distribution (at least on par with Debian 9 kernel and libraries) based on systemd. A version compatible with SysVInit is anyway planned armv7l version (32 bit) has been tested in Raspberry Pi 3 and 4 with Raspbian 10. It will not run in Raspbian 9 (libraries are too old) aarch64 version (for 64 bit ARM) has been tested in Raspberry Pi4 with Ubuntu 19 and Ubuntu 20 for ARM 64 bit TCP queue limit If you connect over TCP, Hummingbird will set by default a minimum TCP outgoing queue size of 512 packets to avoid TCP_OVERFLOW errors. If you need a larger queue in TCP, the following option is now available from command line, in addition to profile directive tcp-queue-limit: --tcp-queue-limit n where n is the amount of packets. Legal range is 1-65535. We strongly recommend you to allow at least 512 packets as queue limit (default value). Larger queues are necessary when you connect in TCP and need a lot of open connections with sustained (continuous) but not necessarily high throughput, for example if you run a BitTorrent software. In such cases you can enlarge the queue as much as you need, until you stop getting TCP_OVERFLOW. It's not uncommon from our community as well as our internal tests to set 4000 packets queue limit to prevent any TCP overflow. If you connect over UDP, you can ignore all of the above. Network Lock Network Lock prevents traffic leaks outside the VPN tunnel through firewall rules. Hummingbird 1.0.3 widens --network-lock option arguments. The following arguments are now accepted: on | off | iptables | nftables | pf (default: on). If you specify on argument, or you omit --network-lock option, Hummingbird will automatically detect and use the infrastructure available on your system. Hummingbird picks the first available infrastructure between iptables-legacy, iptables, nftables and pf. Note: command line options, when specified, override profile directives, when options and profile directives have the same purpose.

  13. @lex.luthor Hello! Unfortunately your system does not support a 2 years old glibc library (2.28), which for ARM architecture is the oldest library that Hummingbird supports. The version in your system (2.24) is more than 4 years old! Is any update to your system distribution available? Kind regards
  14. @Hellegat Not reproducible, can you open a ticket for additional investigation? Kind regards
  15. @c3p0 Do you still have the old profile? If so, would you send it to us? It is probably corrupt and we would like to see what happened, if possible. You might send it to us via a ticket. Thank you in any case. Kind regards
  16. Hello! Please check whether Eddie starts minimized. Look for Eddie's tray icon in the system tray. It's a tiny cloud in a circle. Please make sure to click the "up" arrow to see even hidden tray icons. If you find the tray icon, double-click on it to raise Eddie's main window. In "Preferences" you can tell Eddie whether to start minimized or not. Kind regards
  17. Hello! Just to point out that since Network Lock is a set of firewall rules, no traffic leak is possible if Eddie crashes. Kind regards
  18. @Terry Stanford Hello! According to your description it's not a bug, the behavior is normal and expected, as Eddie needs root privileges to modify firewall rules (and therefore "enable Network Lock") etc. If you need "persistent" Network Lock you just need some firewall rules. In pf, for example: block out all pass in from to pass out from to (to ensure communications of your machine with itself via sockets etc. you should always allow localhost) When Eddie enables Network Lock, pf rules are overwritten and communications to VPN servers will be possible. When Eddie quits or Network Lock is disabled, your previous "blocking all" rules will be restored, so no comms outside the VPN are ever possible. Kind regards
  19. @Neighbour80 Thank you! Firefox is developed mainly in C, C++, Rust and Javascript. It's not that a language is inherently "problematic from a security standpoint", the matter is more complex and, really, off-topic here, but you can enjoy 40-years old discussions that are still ongoing on the good and bad points of C++ since 1986 on BBS, and on specialized developers' forums. 🤩 Kind regards
  20. @barrowight Hello! It sounds normal. During sleep network interface card is turned off and applications are frozen. Kind regards
  21. Hello! Eddie 2.12.4 is more than three years old and is not fully compatible with Windows 10. Please upgrade to Eddie 2.18.9 (latest stable release) and the problem should be resolved. Remove completely Eddie 2.12.4 before upgrading, in particular make sure to delete any file in directory C:\Users\grrrb\AppData\Local\AirVPN Eddie Windows edition can be downloaded here: https://airvpn.org/windows Kind regards
  22. @go558a83nk The main advantage over OpenVPN in terms of performance is the fact that Wireguard runs in the kernel space while OpenVPN runs in the userspace, Cipher CHACHA20 is available in OpenVPN too. It's slower than AES in AES-NI supporting systems, so it is very relevant only in those systems which do not support AES-NI, typically mobile and embedded devices based on ARM processors. So when Wireguard can't run in the kernel space (for example when you use it in Android or iOS) you lose that gain. The fact that Wireguard does not support TCP is bad for us, because it cuts out a very remarkable percentage of our users: those who have their ISP blocking or heavily shaping UDP, those who need to pass through some proxy (which supports only TCP) to get on to the Internet, and those who need to tunnel the VPN protocol over SSH or sTunnel. Kind regards
  23. @HannaForest Hello! It's not less or more dangerous, it's just that data retention that's mandatory for residential ISPs is not a matter which affects our service, while data retention mandatory for datacenters is. Kind regards
  24. @jx35552zza Hello! If you still have the old profile which caused the problem, could you send it to us in a ticket? From your description we think that it is corrupt and we would like to see how it got corrupted: we have some cases where the profile is corrupt and we would like to gather more information on the issue. Kind regards
  25. @22lr Hello! We confirm that Hummingbird does not need Mono, so @eburom recommendation is good to resolve security concerns on Mono (remember anyway that Eddie's part running with root privileges is completely written in C++ and does not need Mono). We would like to add that in June we will announce a brand new software for Linux, a deep evolution of Hummingbird. Even the new software will not need Mono in any way. Kind regards
