  1. @OpenSourcerer Just to clarify that this is not "fake news": https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2021/06/if-not-overturned-bad-copyright-decision-will-lead-many-americans-lose-internet A moderator can not threaten an ex ante, pre determined censorship based on the source of the information, be it a web site or anything else. Before you enforce your censorship power we gave you, you must cross-check and verify. If you are not able to do so beyond a reasonable doubt, or you have not the time or will to do so, do not censor. Kind regards
  2. @MateoPeri Hello! We're sorry, you can't do that from within Hummingbird. You might catch from Hummingbird output (Hummingbird prints to stdout, so you can pipe its output trivially) the string "CONNECTED". When it is caught, you run what you want and (contrarily to OpenVPN) you are not forced to do it with root privileges, which is an important security bonus. If you run Linux, consider Bluetit. It sends a D-Bus event when a connection is established. The developer's documentation is being written and it may come handy for your use case too. Stay tuned in the "News" forum, when the documentation is ready we will announce it there. Kind regards
  3. @frisof Hello! Geo-routing (aka "micro-routing") information is reported here: https://airvpn.org/forums/forum/10-websites-support/ If some web site is not reported and you notice a geo-routing in place, a possible explanation is that the web site uses a CDN we have already "geo-routed" for some other service. Feel free to report. Kind regards
  4. Hello! Tables include data that's 7 years old (connection slots three, countries 16, servers 138?!? it's something from 2014), screenshots are taken from another web site, the concerns about the terms of service are taken from a fantasy world (*). They are so inept hat they even failed to report correctly our prices. They do not clearly state that they are paid by our competitors, while we always refuse to pay for reviews which is probably what bothers them most, because if this fair practice was widespread, there would be no more room for bogus reviews parasites. (*) Please read the Terms of Service yourself and you'll see. It's like in some part they are talking about some other VPN service, as if the article was a frankenstein-ish copy & paste and something went wrong with a mixture of different service reviews .🤣 Note that this thread will soon be moved to trash forum. Kind regards
  5. @Terry Stanford Hello! That sounds partially wrong, please link us this answer because we can't find it. If it was from a Staff member it needs to be fixed. We do. Please keep us informed, or inform the support team, as you prefer. Kind regards
  6. @Terry Stanford Hello! We just made sure that support team really passed the ticket to Eddie developer for additional investigation and we see that they did so on 2021-05-06. Unfortunately it seems that the issue could not be reproduced and therefore the bug you reported is still there and can't be found. Wait, do not twist words and basic meaning. You were told that when your Mac turns off the physical network interface it is unavoidable that a VPN connection is lost, because it's the physical connection to the Internet that gets lost, obviously. That said, we do understand your anger and frustration because your reports show a substantial range of malfunctions which would irritate anybody. Sadly the main problem (for any software) in such cases is when a malfunction is reported and nobody in the development team manages to reproduce it, no matter how they try. When a malfunction is invisible (not reproducible) on development and testing systems, you have no idea where to search for the bug(s) causing it. We would like to propose you something alternative which we see the support team did not: would you like to test Hummingbird and check what happens under the same conditions, in your Mojave system? Since when your problems started, a new and more efficient Hummingbird version has been released, and it runs (for throughput) a lot faster than the previous version as well as OpenVPN 2. About Hummingbird: https://airvpn.org/hummingbird/readme/ Yes we know, you will not have a GUI, but it would be a test which might provide some clue by comparison, and who knows, maybe Hummingbird will be less problematic than Eddie in your system. Kind regards
  7. @ProphetPX Hello! The "graduated response" in the United States (aka "three strikes") was a voluntary agreement between ISPs and copyright holders to terminate the line of an alleged copyright infringer for several months or one year, without court order and inaudita altera parte (no right to defense ex ante) and put him/her in a black list so that he/she can't re-connect to the Internet with any other provider while he/she serves his/her sentence for the alleged, unproven behavior. The agreement was followed by most if not all ISPs from 2011 to 2017, causing tens of thousand of controversial disconnections. However, it had no impact at all on on the amount of copyright infringements and it was abandoned in 2017. Sony attempt might aim at transforming the abandoned voluntary agreement into an obligation by law as it is in France, New Zealand and South Korea for example, by eroding, through a legal precedent, the safe harbor liability exemptions in the USA for ISPs. The graduated response is totally ineffective against those who protect their traffic behind serious VPN services. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graduated_response https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Online_Copyright_Infringement_Liability_Limitation_Act Kind regards
  8. @yatt007 Hello! The iP address you mention 116.203... is one of our IP addresses and it is used by a CH re-routing server. Puzzle solved. Kind regards
  9. Hello! Nothing, it's a server side "problem", not Hummingbird's. If the server does not answer within 10 seconds Hummingbird will retry. The 10 seconds value can be modified via command line options (not possible via Eddie anyway). It seems an irrelevant issue anyway, so you might safely ignore it. Kind regards
  10. @yatt007 Hello! It looks fine... and what are your Operating System name and exact version? Have you checked whether your system queries only VPN DNS? We forgot to tell you that one of the ways you can do that is browsing https://ipleak.net while your system is connected to the VPN. Kind regards
  11. @Maggie144 Here: . 2021.06.16 14:19:55 - Hummingbird > EVENT: WAIT . 2021.06.16 14:20:05 - Hummingbird > Server poll timeout, trying next remote entry... the 10 seconds delay you notice are caused by the fact that the remote server does not answer within 10 seconds. The next attempt to the very same server is successful. Can you please try with Hummingbird alone (without Eddie) and check whether the same problem occurs? Kind regards
  12. @Maggie144 Hello! We can't see this behavior, can you please send us the complete log? pf rules are 100% effective in M1 too. Kind regards
  13. @yatt007 Hello! Yes, 95.110... is our geo-routing server in Italy. As you previously noted, geo-routing for some destination can be "on" or "off", it can't be "intermittent". Maybe the destination service uses a series of host names and IP addresses and some of them are re-routed and some are not, or maybe your system doesn't query all the times VPN DNS (the only way to be re-routed is querying VPN DNS). To begin with a preliminary verification, can you please check the second option, and make sure that your system only and exclusively queries VPN DNS? Kind regards
  14. @monstrocity Hello! Once again: the warnings you get are not an issue, they are intended and expected, and they must appear for the already mentioned reasons. HB 1.1.1. does not print them only because they were not implemented at that time, but Eddie invokes HB in the same way, so you should not use 1.1.1. You can safely run Eddie + Hummingbird 1.1.2 when you don't run systemd-resolved or when you run systemd-resolved configured to respect /etc/resolv.conf .- otherwise you must run Hummingbird alone, or Bluetit+Goldcrest. If the other issue re-occurs (that's the one unexpected issue) please do not forget to save the log, thanks in advance! @jrredho Both Bluetit and Hummingbird can handle swiftly DNS push & restore in Fedora 33 and 34, and in general under any systemd-resolved configuration (including the Windows-ish one Fedora picked as a default setting since 33 release). Fedora 34 is one of our primary development and testing environments so we are confident that you will have no problems at all with the new AirVPN Suite 1.1.0, but of course feel free to report. Kind regards
  15. @monstrocity Hello! Eddie handles DNS by itself. As @OpenSourcerer noted, Eddie runs Hummingbird with --ignore-dns-push. This happened even in the past, but HB 1.1.2 now logs more accurately and warns you that it has been ordered to ignore DNS push. Therefore you should upgrade to HB 1.1.2 and not use older versions anymore. An important implication of the above choice for Eddie is that Eddie + Hummingbird is not usable in systems where systemd-resolved is configured to not respect /etc/resolv.conf settings (example: Fedora 33 and 34). In such systems Eddie should not be used as it can not handle DNS, while Hummingbird and Bluetit can. No, it's not a compatibility issue, it's only that Hummingbird by default handles DNS push. We can't reproduce the issue, can you please send us HB log showing the problem and any (if any) additional clue to reproduce the problem? Can you also tell us what you mean exactly with "Only logging out or restarting"? Kind regards
  16. @KovaKovi Hello! Assuming that you connect to entry-IP address 3, you can get all the IP addresses you ask for by resolving the following name: europe3.all.vpn.airdns.org Query in TCP because the answer is too long for an UDP DNS query. Example with dig: dig +tcp +short europe3.all.vpn.airdns.org Kind regards
  17. @cdysthe @Drk01 Hello! If those solutions are too complex, you might consider a Virtual Machine. Nowadays software like VirtualBox and VMWare make running a VM a piece of cake, you just need some time (once and for all) to install an OS from scratch. Then you can connect only the VM to the VPN (exactly as you do now in your machine) and use the applications whose traffic must be tunneled only in the VM. Host traffic will remain out of the VPN. Kind regards
  18. Hello! We're very glad to inform you that we have just released Hummingbird 1.1.2 for macOS (High Sierra or higher version required). Hummingbird is available natively both for Intel and M1 based Mac computers. Hummingbird is free and open source released under GPLv3: https://gitlab.com/AirVPN/hummingbird Main features Lightweight and stand alone binary No heavy framework required, no GUI Small RAM footprint Lightning fast Up to 100% higher throughput than OpenVPN 2.5 (on 1 Gbit/s lines) Based on OpenVPN 3 library fork by AirVPN Robust leaks prevention through Network Lock based on pf - working perfectly on Big Sur too Proper handling of DNS push by VPN servers What's new Remarkably higher performance  Hummingbird 1.1.2 is based on the latest OpenVPN AirVPN library version linked against OpenSSL, and not mbedTLS anymore. OpenSSL latest versions in macOS have reached higher performance than mbedTLS both in encryption and decryption based on AES and CHACHA20-POLY1305 ciphers. The current 1.1.2 version has been additionally optimized and can now provide higher performance than 1.1.1. According to our tests now Hummigbird can reach, both on Intel i7 and M1 machines, with AES-GCM-256, 400 Mbit/s of download rate (CHACHA20 is slower as it can't still compete with AES-NI). On equal ground, as a comparison, OpenVPN 2.5.2 (our new binary optimized for M1) can reach 200 Mbit/s (only half of the speed!). Therefore, we strongly recommend that you test Hummingbird 1.1.2 even if you run Eddie. Remember that you can run Hummingbird through Eddie comfortably and quickly by setting the proper option. Hummingbird 1.1.2 is linked against latest OpenVPN3-AirVPN library. Changelog Version 1.1.2 - 4 June 2021 - [ProMIND] updated all dependencies and libraries *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* Version 1.1.2 RC 4 - 14 May 2021 - [ProMIND] DNS backup files are now properly evaluated when determining dirty status - [ProMIND] ProfileMerge is now constructed by allowing any file extension - [ProMIND] Reconnection (SIGUSR2) is now allowed only in case tun persistence is enabled *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* Version 1.1.2 RC 3 - 16 April 2021 - [ProMIND] Release Candidate 3 *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* Version 1.1.2 RC 2 - 14 April 2021 - [ProMIND] Release Candidate 2 *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* Version 1.1.2 RC 1 - 7 April 2021 - [ProMIND] Release Candidate 1 *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* Version 1.1.2 - 2 April 2021 - [ProMIND] Updated base classes *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* Download Hummingbird for macOS is distributed in notarized and plain versions, both for Intel and M1 processors: Check the download page: https://airvpn.org/macos/hummingbird/ The difference is about how the package is seen by macOS security and it is therefore up to the user to pick the distribution file suiting his or her needs best. The notarized version is compliant to macOS software security scheme and runs "out-of-the-box", whereas the plain version needs to be explicitly granted permission to run by the user in macOS security & privacy settings. Please note that both versions ensure the same functionality in connecting a VPN server, it is however up to the user to decide whether using the signed and notarized version or not.

  19. Hello! Today we are releasing a new Hummingbird native version both for Intel and M1 based Mac. In both systems it is remarkably faster, with throughput, than the previous version. Check "News" forum later on. Kind regards
  20. Hello! That's very interesting because our last tests (which are now three years old) showed that thousands of IP addresses are blocked directly inside the datacenters so our requirements of an agnostic network were not met. If such a censorship does not exist anymore, we will re-evaluate for sure. Kind regards
  21. @cheapsheep Hello! Thank you for your feedback. Bug reproduced and confirmed, it will be investigated to have a fix in the next release. Your syntax is correct and in your case a list is simply a series of names separated by commas. The list works effectively, but only for "quick" connection mode. In "country" connection mode Bluetit ignores it. You can, in the meantime, have some sort of good workaround by setting boot connection mode to quick and compiling white and black list according to your needs. Kind regards
  22. Hello! Sorry, the installer can't configure Bluetit to start automatically at bootstrap within runit specifications reported here https://docs.voidlinux.org/config/services/index.html , so you will need to configure it manually (or just run it at boot in some init script - Bluetit will be able to connect and activate Network Lock even in this way, if specified in the run control file bluetit.rc). Kind regards
  23. @OpenSourcerer Thanks! Something might have changed in 248 because we can't reproduce the bug with the reliability we had in all previous versions we tested (205-->246). But you just proved that the bug is still there, unfortunately. Note how systemd first did not respect the timeout between SIGTERM and SIGKILL, and then sent twice SIGKILL (SIGTERM, SIGKILL and SIGKILL are all sent, according to our tests, in a time not greater than 0.2 s). Kind regards
  24. Hello! We're very glad to inform you that 1.1.0 has just been released! We are locking this thread, please continue if necessary here: Kind regards
