  1. @GhastMaster OK, fine! It means the problem was not caused by the bug we have detected. Well, we're glad to know anyway that the problem is resolved. Kind regards
  2. @GhastMaster Hummingbird uses OpenVPN3-AirVPN library which is remarkably more efficient than OpenVPN 2, so a slight throughput improvement is possible. You should also notice connections and disconnections up to 200 times faster than OpenVPN 2. Kind regards
  3. Hello! It's a bug, we have detected it and it will be fixed soon. To resolve the situation in the meantime: open a terminal type the command sudo rm /etc/airvpn/* set your favorite DNS with your system utilities Now Hummingbird will be able to run properly again. Kind regards
  4. Hello! Yes, already checked in another thread months ago, no traffic leaks. Remember that Windows does not reset sockets when routing table and default gateway change but Network Lock prevents leaks. Specifically tested for telemetry service. Firewall rules ensure no traffic leaks but then again you might have processes from the manufacturer that secretly modify the system packet filtering table and then restore them without leaving traces. It's not rational running a closed source Operating System nowadays but that's what most people prefer (at least in the Desktop market), so we provide solutions to minimize risks. Kind regards
  5. Hello! We would like to remind everybody that: starting from version 2.18, only Eddie Desktop edition GUI is written in C# - all the backend is written in C++ (including Windows edition) Linux and Mac users who don't want to have to do anything with Mono can run Hummingbird which is tiny, fast, free and open source software, using OpenVPN3-AirVPN library according to our roadmap we will release (planned within April 2020) a daemon for Linux and macOS written in C++ and based on OpenVPN3-AirVPN library the mentioned daemon will be fully integrated with AirVPN and documented to provide the knowledge to write a client for it. AirVPN will release a command line client and a Qt based client with a full featured GUI Due to its instability and psycho design in Android, Mono was abandoned before first Eddie Android edition stable version was released. More precisely Mono was disavowed by 1.0 RC 5. Changelog 1.0 RC 5 (VC 8) - Release date: 21 September 2018 by ProMIND - [ProMIND] Complete porting and rewrite in Java language. As for mono, C#, libmonosgen and libmonodroid: "so long, and thanks for all the fish" Kind regards
  6. Hello! Our referral system conditions have been updated today, 08/Apr/20. Please check referral conditions here: https://airvpn.org/faq/referrals/ Do not hesitate to contact us privately for any clarification. Kind regards
  7. This topic is closed. Anyone still having some issue can continue in the following, new thread: https://airvpn.org/forums/topic/46329-eddie-desktop-219beta-released/
  8. Hello! Your Eddie version is several years old (thanks for having picked AirVPN since a long ago!) and is causing the problem. Please upgrade Eddie and the problem should get resolved. You can download Eddie latest stable release (currently 2.18.9) for Windows here: https://airvpn.org/windows Kind regards
  9. This version contains some bug fixes (in Windows and some OS X and macOS versions) we discovered after 2.18.9 stable version had been released. You don't need to download it if you don't have any issue with the latest stable release. Version 2.19.0 (Tue, 07 Apr 2020 13:11:42 +0000) [bugfix] - Windows, Custom DNS [change] - Windows, DNS, switch only UP network adapter [bugfix] - MacOS, fix PKG package (relocation disabled) [bugfix] - MacOS, fix signature issue with older Yosemite
  10. Hello! We're very glad to inform you that a new Eddie Air client version has been released: 2.19beta. It is ready for public beta testing. How to test our experimental release: Go to download page of your OS Click on Other versions Click on Experimental Look at the changelog if you wish Download and install Please see the changelog: https://eddie.website/changelog/?software=client&format=html PLEASE CONSIDER THIS AS A BETA VERSION. Don't use it for real connection, it's only for those who want to collaborate to the project as beta-tester.
  11. @Maddog77 Hello! Can you tell us your Linux distribution name and exact version? Both OpenVPN and curl appear old. Please upgrade OpenVPN and curl, or consider to upgrade the distribution itself, and the problem should be solved. In reality, if you don't need tls-crypt and IPv6, you can still run OpenVPN 2.3.10. However curl needs an update as your version (which is invoked by Eddie) seems unable to support the latest TLS requirements by our servers. Alternatively you can avoid to use Eddie and run OpenVPN directly, but you will lose all the additional features Eddie is packed with. Hummingbird (another free and open source software by AirVPN) might or might not be a viable option, it depends on how old glibc and other libraries are in your system. One of the oldest Linux distributions that can run Hummingbird is Debian 9, which features really archaic and obsolete software & kernel, in line with Debian philosophy, so it's possible that your distribution can run it too. Kind regards
  12. @Berlingo Hello! Can you please check your Eddie version? If it's older than 2.18.9 please upgrade and test again. You can download Eddie latest stable release (currently 2.18.9) for Windows here: https://airvpn.org/windows You can download Eddie latest stable release (currently 2.18.9) for Linux here: https://airvpn.org/linux You can download Eddie latest stable release (currently 2.18.9) for Mac here: https://airvpn.org/macos Kind regards
  13. @Genje Hello! Does the port exist in your system, i.e. does the listening service listen to the correct interface and correct port (it must not bind to the physical network interface)? What is the software that must receive the forwarded packets? Kind regards
  14. Hello and thank you for your choice! Your Eddie version is very old. Please upgrade Eddie and the problem should be resolved. You can download Eddie latest stable release for Windows here: https://airvpn.org/windows You can download Eddie latest stable release for Linux here: https://airvpn.org/linux You can download Eddie latest stable release for Mac here: https://airvpn.org/macos Kind regards
  15. Hello! You can't remotely forward inbound ports under 2048 in our service. Port 1122 is not, and has never been, forwarded to your node. Please also note that port 1122 is not even a "remapped" destination port for your client. Thus, perhaps, all the problems are caused by a single, trivial error, i.e. a wrong port number assumption. Kind regards
  16. Released as stable here . Any pending issue (please remind us below) will be addressed in the next beta 2.19,
  17. Hello! OK. You can't do that with your setup as you would end up with conflicting/overwriting routes and gateway. Windows does not support multiple routing tables anyway, so it's worth to consider an alternative solution. As a first consideration, the following setup should meet your needs: create a VM and attach it to the host via NAT connect the host (using Eddie for example, or OpenVPN with an AirVPN profile) to some AirVPN server when the connection from the host to AirVPN is established, connect your guest VM to your own VPN server via OpenVPN and your own OpenVPN profile Traffic from the VM will reach your VPN server through the AirVPN server the host is connected to. Kind regards
  18. Hello! We're very glad to inform you that a new stable release of Eddie is now available for Linux, Mac and Windows. Eddie is a free and open source (GPLv3) OpenVPN GUI and CLI by AirVPN with many additional features such as: traffic leaks prevention via packet filtering rules DNS handling optional connections over Tor or a generic proxy customizable events traffic splitting on a destination IP address or host name basis complete and swift integration with AirVPN infrastructure Eddie 2.18.9 has been extensively rewritten to increase speed, stability, security and compatibility with the latest OS versions. It is the outcome of a massive work which took care to meet very many requests from our community and got rid of some issues affecting Eddie previous stable release when running in latest OS releases. Eddie GUI and CLI now run with normal user privileges, while only a "backend" binary, which communicates with the user interface with authentication, gains root/administrator privileges, with important security safeguards in place: stricter parsing is enforced before passing a profile to OpenVPN in order to block insecure OpenVPN directives external system binaries which need superuser privileges (examples: openvpn, iptables) will not be launched if they do not belong to a superuser Eddie events are no more run with superuser privileges: instead of trusting blindly user's responsibility and care when dealing with events, now the user is required to explicitly operate to run something with high privileges, if necessary Backend binary has been completely rewritten in C++ on all systems (Windows included), making the whole application faster. On top of that various optimizations have been implemented. Now Eddie provides you with higher responsiveness and an improved overall feel and comfort. CLI version has been improved as well, featuring numerous glitch and bug fixes. Compatibility for macOS Catalina and latest Linux distributions, including DNS handling, has been enhanced. Settings, certificates and keys of your account stored on your mass storage can optionally be encrypted on all systems either with a Master Password or a system key-chain if available. For Windows systems, wintun support has been added. You can now, if you wish so, replace the driver for OpenVPN virtual network interface with the new wintun for higher throughput (OpenVPN 2.5 tech preview required). In Linux and Mac systems, Eddie can also launch Hummingbird, which is very fast and is based on OpenVPN3-AirVPN library, replacing OpenVPN 2.x. In this way you can have at once a GUI for Hummingbird (which lacks it), the usual great amount of features and options Eddie is packed with, and faster connections/disconnections, as OpenVPN3-AirVPN is exceptionally faster than OpenVPN 2 during connection and disconnection phases. Eddie 2.18.9 can be downloaded here: https://airvpn.org/linux - Linux version https://airvpn.org/macos - Mac version https://airvpn.org/windows - Windows version Eddie 2.18.9 is free and open source software released under GPLv3. Source code is available on GitHub: https://github.com/AirVPN/Eddie Eddie 2.18 changelog shows you the massive work behind it and all those implemented changes that remained necessarily not mentioned in this announcement. Complete changelog can be found here.

  19. @juancarlos101 Hello! Please allow at least one hour and a half during the current period to receive an answer from the support team, thank you for your patience. To everybody: we expect that the average response time to tickets will be even higher in the near future, so don't get upset if you need to wait 2-3 hours, thank you for your understanding. Kind regards
  20. @airvpn@ignlg.com Hello and thank you! The logging you mention is correct, Hummingbird writes to stdout everything coming from OpenVPN3-AirVPN library by design, which could be changed in the future but at the moment we're fine with that, as it appears rational to write to stdout connection errors etc. from the library and not errors related to Hummingbird in itself. The logic behind it is that any connection or packet error is related to line etc. and not to the binary operation, so it is reasonable that all the OpenVPN3-AirVPN library responses pertaining to connections and packet operations go to stdout. "No ALTQ support in kernel" error might be caused by a macOS version older than Catalina, can you tell us your exact macOS version? Connection errors in paragraph 2 suggest that UDP and/or OpenVPN are blocked, does the same happen if you try a connection in TCP to entry-IP address THREE? Kind regards
  21. @tester.user We will not mention your country here (we came to know because you published your real IP address, which we redacted before the message went public, so no worries) but we confirm, from dozens of independent reports, that OpenVPN is blocked in your country. The good news are that those same reports confirm that, by using the connection mode we recommended, the block against OpenVPN is bypassed successfully. We see now from the screenshot you published that you don't run Eddie, the Air software client, and that you also try to connect to some VPN server that's not ours, so you are NOT using an AirVPN configuration file. You also have a problem with the tun/tap adapter, which is the virtual network interface used by OpenVPN. In order to connect to AirVPN through OpenVPN GUI follow the instructions here: https://airvpn.org/windows/openvpn/gui/ When you generate the configuration file for OpenVPN in the Configuration Generator, make sure to tick "Advanced Mode". Then, pick the connection mode with the following parameters: protocol TCP port 443 entry-IP address THREE Then, in order to resolve the tun/tap network interface problem, reset the adapter when OpenVPN and/or Eddie do not run, and later make sure that you run only one OpenVPN instance. To reset the adapter: Open Start > Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center > Change adapter settings Locate the Tap-Windows Adapter (TAP Windows 32 or similar descriptions) Right click on it and select Disable from the contextual menu Right click on it again and select Enable If you wish to switch to Eddie for Windows, you can download it here: https://airvpn.org/windows In Eddie you must take care to change connection mode in "Preferences" > "Protocols" window. Set the aforementioned connection mode. With Eddie you do NOT need the Configuration Generator. Kind regards
  22. Version 2.18.9 (Thu, 02 Apr 2020 12:14:10 +0000) [add] - Windows - Added DotNet 4.5 check & install in Installer edition [bugfix] - Linux - Resolved an elevation issue in some Linux distribution (Raspbian mainly) [bugfix] - Fixed a bug that intermittently ignores --connect @rgrdgr
  23. Hello! From your country the following connection mode is mandatory. OpenVPN is blocked everywhere, while UDP Is not infrequently blocked on some networks. Protocol TCP Port 443 Entry-IP address THREE You can change connection mode from Eddie's "Preferences" > "Protocols" window. Detick "Automatic", select the line with the above setting (it will be highlighted in blue) and click "Save". Enable Network Lock from Eddie's main window. Kind regards
  24. I know. I also tried with Hummingbird and the same thing happened over and over again. It's not an Eddie problem then. Feel free to open a ticket and provide all the necessary documentation that may help us resolve your problem. Please don't hijack the thread anymore. Kind regards
  25. Hello! Yes, as @go558a83nk explained, but in any case your CPU load is anomalous (too high) in both cases, could you please tell us your exact system architecture, OS name and version? Can you also make sure that during those tests which cause 100% CPU load no other computing intensive applications are running? Also, how do you determine exactly that the whole CPU is 100% loaded? Please describe with details to prevent any bias from wrong interpretations, just in case. Kind regards
