    @arteryshelby

    We do not log and/or inspect our customers' traffic. Since 2010 you can't produce any single case, and not even the slightest clue, in which the identity of an AirVPN customer has been disclosed through traffic log and/or inspection and/or any other invasive method.

    It means a lot, given that various younger VPN services have been caught lying (ascertained court cases) and that AirVPN is now the oldest still active VPN service, with the exception of a minor service which anyway changed ownership twice in the last 12 years.

    By the way we have never asked our customers to blindly believe in our words.

    We do not block Tor and we even integrate its usage in our software, so you can be even safer if you can't afford to trust us OR some datacenter. For example you can use Tor over OpenVPN, to hide Tor usage to your country and ISP, and at the same time hide your traffic real origin, destination, protocol etc. to us and the datacenter the server is connected into.

    Last but not least, we invest a lo of money in Tor infrastructure and in 2017, 2018 and 2019 more than 2.5% of global world Tor network traffic transited on Tor exit-nodes paid by AirVPN. It is an important achievement we're proud of, and it hints to good faith.

    @Flx

    No reboots have been recorded and no daemons have been restarted. However some Amanah servers have suffered a line blackout at ~ 3.30 AM (UTC) for several minutes. We also see that the problem was sorted out just before 4 AM.

    During the blackout they could not communicate at all. It might be the problem you mention. Check the real time server monitor and when you mention time remember to specify time zone. No communications from Amanah so far.

    Staff reacted to gzoido in SCRIPT - Update your AirVPN configuration with working IPs sorted by ping.   ...
    Hey all! I ran into an issue the other day when setting up AirVPN where I found alot of the AirVPN IP's appear to be blocked by my ISP. In my quest to resolve this issue, I ended up creating a script that uses fping and dig to get all the IPs for a region, check that they work, and add those to your AirVPN configuration. I figured this script might be helpful to some, so I'd share it here.

    You can download it here: https://gist.github.com/zikeji/144247cb20793a5a7c65653e5f7c572b

    A simple one line to download it and set the executable bit:
    wget https://gist.githubusercontent.com/zikeji/144247cb20793a5a7c65653e5f7c572b/raw/a414cc4f6828904992f18e0a0bdecf6cf5e4f85c/airvpn_remotes.sh -q -O airvpn_remotes.sh && chmod +x airvpn_remotes.sh

    Warning: Remember, for your safety ALWAYS review a downloaded script before executing it!

    The command's help output: airvpn_remotes.sh

    Description:
      Use dig and fping generate multiple remotes for an AirVPN config, replacing existing remote(s), and ignoring IPs that aren't responding. Remotes are placed in order of lowest ping to highest.

    Usage:
      airvpn_remotes.sh [--port=<int>] [--query=<fqdn>] [--ipv4] [--ipv6] [--remote-random] [--in-place] [input-file]
      airvpn_remotes.sh -h | --help

    Options:
      -h, --help                       Show this screen.
      -p <int>, --port=<fqdn>          Override the port supplied on each remote line [default: 443].
      -q <fqdn>, --query=<fqdn>        Supply the DNS record you wish to query to use the IPs from [default: ca.all.vpn.airdns.org].
      -s <ns>, --server=<ns>           The name server you wish to query the records against [default: ns1.airvpn.org].
      -c <int>, --count=<int>          Change the amount of pings ran by fping for more accurate ping sorting [default: 4].
      -4, --ipv4                       Only query IPv4.
      -6, --ipv6                       Only query IPv6.
      -r, --remote-random              Add remote-random to the AirVPN config (this will cause OpenVPN to randomize the server order when connecting).
      -i<ext>, --in-place=<ext>        Edit the file in place (makes backup if extension supplied), ignored if no input file is supplied.

    The first non-option argument is the name of the input file; if no input file is specified, then the standard input is read. All other non-option arguments after the first are ignored.

    You'll need to ensure dig and fping are installed on your distribution before you can use it. Additionally, if your system doesn't support IPv6 it'll only return IPv4 be default (because naturally pinging the IPv6 addresses will fail). And finally, I've only tested the script on Ubuntu 20.04, but hopefully you don't run into trouble.

    By default the script checks the DNS record AirVPN maintains for all of CA's servers. You can find out more about the records option here: https://airvpn.org/faq/servers_ip/

    The help file should be pretty clear as to how to use the script, but I'll provide an example.

    I want to update my AirVPN.ovpn file with new remotes that'll be executed randomly and only include IPv4 remotes, and I want them from the Netherlands. Additionally, instead of connecting in order I want it to connect to a random server defined in the config. Since I use port 1194 instead of port 443, I also want each remote to use port 1194 instead of the default. I also want it to backup my original config before overwriting it. I would run: ./airvpn_remotes.sh -r4 -qnl.all.vpn.airdns.org -p1194 -iold AirVPN.ovpn

    Which would remove any lines from my AirVPN conf that are a remote or a remote-random and add the new remotes, sorted by lowest ping first (which is irrelevant because we're also adding remote-random).

    Hopefully this script might be useful for someone else as well!

    system_vpn_lock: true
    Just a remark: Since you are using Android 10, the VPN lock in Eddie is not needed. Consider setting up Always-On VPN option of Android and select Eddie as the VPN app. You will get a more sophisticated Network Lock this way.
      system_pause_vpn_when_screen_is_off: true
    This option is also potentially problematic in regard to your problem, but also as a whole. Everytime you turn off your screen, the VPN connection is disconnected, but not closed. This might provoke problems with connectivity.

    As for the log output, did I get it right that you changed from WIFI to WIFI, as in, from one network to another and not WIFI to 3G/4G or vice versa?

    Staff reacted to nwlyoc in Interactive Wrapper for Hummingbird (with boot script and default network lock)   ...
    Hello,
    last year I had written a wrapper for Eddie's CLI version (in bash) to be able to use it more easily and extensively in the linux command line like the GUI, but with less resources. I have used it since then every day without problems, but now I have finally gotten to overhaul it and adjust it to Hummingbird because it is just so much faster! I also tried to make it more easy to configure (by having a separate configuration file) and added some new functionality like support (and automatic recognition) of iptables and nftables to lock down the system even without being connected to AirVPN and automatic connection at boot with a systemd unit.
    Again, feel free to use this as you wish, I hope someone can benefit from this. I'm happy about any improvements and corrections and will update this if I find the time.

    Features
    graphical interface in the command line to connect to AirVPN with Hummingbird (no Eddie involved) runs in background, the interface can be closed/opened anytime without affecting the running connection possibility to connect to any server with just one ovpn configuration file easily connect to a random server, to a recommended server, to the recommended server of a specific country or to a specific server sortable list of all servers including info like used bandwidth, load and number of users possibility to connect to other VPNs with openconnect lock down system by default (permanently if you want), so even without AirVPN/Hummingbird running there won't be any unwanted network traffic automatically establish connection at boot (which can later be controlled via the interface) logging of Hummingbird's output (number of days to keep logs for can be adjusted) system notifications to let you know what happens in the background
    Some general notes The default network lock determines, like Hummingbird itself, if iptables, iptables-legacy or nftables is available on your system and will use the first one found in that list. You can overwrite that by specifying which one to use in the configuration file. Once activated, the lock will stay in place until manually deactivated, so no internet connection will be possible unless connected to AirVPN or other whitelisted VPNs. You can make the lock permanent (or rather activate at boot) by enabling that option in the configuration file. AirVPN's network lock overwrites the default network lock, so there will be no interference. IMPORTANT: If you have any frontend firewall for iptables/nftables running, you might to disable that or read up on how it might interfere with rule changes you make directly via iptables/nft. The same thing applies if you use just Hummingbird itself. If you enable the default permanent network lock, it will write the lock rules at boot, most likely overwriting rules by firewalld or the like, but other enabled firewalls might interfere later. Also important: If you have SELinux and you want to use nftables for Hummingbird starting at boot, you have to create a SELinux exception for nft bcause otherwise it will be denied and Hummingbird starts without setting up its own lock, thus leaving you unprotected (AirVPN staff is aware of this issue). You can do that with audit2allow. Follow for example this guide to troubleshoot the problem and fix it with the solution given by sealert. Check your /etc/resolv.conf file while not running Hummingbird (because Hummingbird's network lock replaces that file temporarily) to make sure your router is not set as a nameserver (so no 192.168... address). Some routers will push themselves on that list by DHCP whenever you connect to their network. Since communication with the router is allowed in the lock rules, DNS requests will be handled by the router and sent to whatever DNS server is configured there even when network traffic should be blocked. There are ways to prevent that file from being changed by DHCP, best configure network manager for that if you use it. To connect to other VPNs, their IPs must be whitelisted and DNS requests for their domains must be allowed in the default network lock rules (netfilter_ipbatles.rulesipv4/ipv6 and/or netfilter_nftables.rules). Only edit those files with the default network lock deactivated. The rules for airvpn.org can be copied and adjusted. You can set custom options for Hummingbird in the interface or the configuration file. All the possible options can be found in the Hummingbird manual or with sudo hummingbird --help Apart from dialog I tried to only use basic system tools. The scripts will check if everything needed is present, if not they will exit. At least bash 4 is needed. The scripts rely mostly on dialog, awk and curl (and iptables/nft as described and openconnect if needed), so it should work on most systems. I wrote and tested this on Fedora 32 with Hummingbird 1.0.3. It should be possible to use any ovpn config file generated by the AirVPN's config generator. Even with the file for one specific server it should be possible to connect to any other server because the server override function is used here. I haven't tested that extensively though and just use the config file for earth. AirVPN's API seems to be a little unreliable sometimes as in not correctly reporting the connection status. Sometimes the API reports me not being connected although I am connected to an AirVPN server. This is no big deal, it just means that the connection status sometimes may be shown falsely as disconnected. If you have the default network lock activated, no traffic would be possible if you were actually disconnected. And, lastly, VERY IMPORTANT: I am still no programmer and do this only on this on the side, so even though I tried my best to make these scripts secure and error free, there might very well be some bad practice, never-ever-do-this mistakes or other hiccups in there. It works very well for me (and has for quite a while by now), but better check it yourself.  
    UPDATE
    As of 2020/08/29 this project including updates, changelog and further instructions is publicly available on GitLab. There it can be more easily examined, downloaded and updated. Thus I have removed the scripts, installation instructions and the archive with all the files from this post. Check out the GitLab project for the newest version.

    Hello!

    It is possible. About two or three years ago, as a consequence of two requests by very advanced customers, we changed completely OpenVPN daemons subnets to make them unique across the whole infrastructure. That deep change main purpose was making multiple connections from the same system easier by preventing any chance of address conflicts. Connecting the same machine to multiple VPN servers is very beneficial for load balancing, failover and bandwidth aggregation.

    Please check for example the following, excellent guide:

    Staff got a reaction from Old Fella in Eddie 2.18.9 Desktop released   ...
    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.

    @arteryshelby

    We do not log and/or inspect our customers' traffic. Since 2010 you can't produce any single case, and not even the slightest clue, in which the identity of an AirVPN customer has been disclosed through traffic log and/or inspection and/or any other invasive method.

    It means a lot, given that various younger VPN services have been caught lying (ascertained court cases) and that AirVPN is now the oldest still active VPN service, with the exception of a minor service which anyway changed ownership twice in the last 12 years.

    By the way we have never asked our customers to blindly believe in our words.

    We do not block Tor and we even integrate its usage in our software, so you can be even safer if you can't afford to trust us OR some datacenter. For example you can use Tor over OpenVPN, to hide Tor usage to your country and ISP, and at the same time hide your traffic real origin, destination, protocol etc. to us and the datacenter the server is connected into.

    Last but not least, we invest a lo of money in Tor infrastructure and in 2017, 2018 and 2019 more than 2.5% of global world Tor network traffic transited on Tor exit-nodes paid by AirVPN. It is an important achievement we're proud of, and it hints to good faith.

    Kind regards

    Staff got a reaction from Thermometre in Server withdrawal announcement: Thuban (FR)   ...
    Hello!
     
    We regret to inform you that the server Thuban (FR) has been withdrawn due to inability of the datacenter to meet our technical requirements.
     
    Currently, we have decided to momentarily drop France. The current legal framework on data retention can be interpreted as an obligation to extend logging of various traffic information by the datacenters, since it covers "hosting providers". Although this obligation, according to our inquiries, has remained quite theoretical so far at datacenter levels, we deem appropriate to not expose our customers to such risks.
     
    We will add in the next days servers in Belgium, where data retention laws have been canceled since last year and the legal framework on data protection and privacy does not infringe human rights.

    @Hotgloblin

    Hello!

    We see that in AsusWRT and in Asus MerlinWRT, IPv6 is not tunneled by OpenVPN, even though IPv6 push is performed. According to some forums, this is a current limitation of the firmware implementation.

    In Eddie Android edition IPv6 over IPv4 is enabled by default and you can fine tune according to your preferences in "Settings". However the OpenVPN3-AirVPN library in the current Eddie Android edition release has serious problems if you need a PURE IPv6 connection, so at the moment you need to renounce to pure IPv6 connections in Eddie Android.

    @giganerd

    We're not sure why you should, but if you need that IPv6 is preferred over IPv4 in spite of the solution you proposed some time ago, check here, even for a "patch" different than the one you suggested:

    Staff got a reaction from turtle300 in How to use wintun driver in Windows   ...
    Hello!

    Although wintun driver is not yet in stable form, it already resolves many issues caused by the TAP-Windows driver, including the infamous bandwidth bottleneck which has always plagued Windows tun/tap virtual network interface. Dramatic performance boost has been observed multiple times on various Windows systems.

    If you have problems with TAP driver installation or you experience poor performance, or you have stability issues, or sometimes your tun/tap interface mysteriously does not come up and requires a reset, consider to drop the TAP-Windows driver and migrate to wintun driver.

    Starting from OpenVPN 2.5 tech preview, OpenVPN can use the wintun driver. Here you can find all the instructions as well as integrating OpenVPN 2.5 with wintun and Eddie Windows edition, AirVPN free and open source software for Windows.

    wintun driver is only for Windows. Other systems do not need it at all.


    Please make sure that no antivirus or packet filtering tool interfere.

    1) Install OpenVPN 2.5 tech preview with wintun driver.
    https://build.openvpn.net/downloads/snapshots/openvpn-install-2.5_git-I607-Win10.exe
    (Windows 10)

    Please make sure that the installer installs the wintun driver too.

    2) Configure Eddie to run the new OpenVPN you have installed:
     from Eddie's main window select "Preferences" > "Advanced"  in "OpenVPN custom path" select the proper OpenVPN binary file you have installed in point 1, through the file requester (by default and assuming that your HDD is C, it will be C:/Program Files/openvpn/bin/openvpn.exe)  click "Save"
    3) Configure Eddie to send a directive to OpenVPN to use the wintun driver: select "Preferences" > "OVPN Directives" from Eddie's main window in the directives field enter the following line: windows-driver wintun press ENTER at the end of the line click "Save"
    Kind regards
