  1. I have a python script running on a android phone which needs to be behind a VPN connection. I can connect via ssh to the phone but over the public VPN address which is very slow. I would like to connect directly over the local network. The problem is that the current Eddie app don't support wlan connections (System->Exclude local networks from the VPN, exclude local networks except mobile networks... which I suspect to be all wlan networks). Is there a way to allow local IP/Port addresses somewhere else? Perhaps with Custom Directives? Edit1: Eddi version 2.5 (VC27) Edit2: mobile networks are not WLAN connections (misunderstanding on my part), theoretically WLAN should work on a mobile phone if connecting to local ip address. It is not working in my case with AirVPN on, only if AirVPN is turned off on the mobile.
  2. After trying to connect to airvpn through eddie, multiple installs and re-installs as well as removing the checkmarks in the "check airvpn dns", "check if tunnel works" and "enable latency test", the best I'm able to achieve is what appears to be a connection but does not allow access to the internet. A program I use to connect to the internet, I've noticed, seems to share the "systemd" dependency, specifically "systemd-networkd". I've tried rechecking the previously unchecked boxes listed above, and eddie starts to check the latency of various servers, seems to start at least, and then freezes at 167. In the logs, I double-click to restart this check and in the 'pinger stats' row the following is displayed: 'Invalid: 167, Older check:-, Latest check: Just now (alternating between this and '1 second ago') (double-click to update). I've gone as far as stopping and restarting the network, still no luck. Attached is my log file. Using the default settings in android, I am unable to connect to the internet with eddie on, and SOMETIMES it refuses to connect at all. Either way, appearing to be connected or not, I cannot connect to the internet via airvpn. Thanks for your help. Eddie_20210328_180658.txt
  3. Is it possible to introduce a feature to save master password to android keystore and unlock the app with fingerprint? I am referring to the Android version of Eddie. It is quite a hassle to have to enter the password every time I want to connect to my VPN. An alternative is to make the master password optional. I understand how this will result in the user credentials not being encrypted, but it can be an option at the user's risk.
  4. When will the Eddie app on Android be updated again?😤 The latest update is from June 2019.
  5. Hi, A couple of VPN clients on Android have quick launch items available for connect so it's just to pull down and connect in the same way as enabling airplane mode or battery saver. I really miss this feature for Eddie which I have running at all times but have to disconnect and reconnect often for various readiness, Quick launch for Eddie please!
  6. Hello again. After having my screen off for a bit of time, I'm not sure for how long, my connection to the VPN drops. I think we are talking about having the screen off for an hour or so, I'm not sure. How would I prevent this from happening? I have attached the part of the log which I believe says everything to see what is happening I especially think that these lines from the log can be useful: 01 Jan 2020 17:53:15 UTC [Error] OpenVPN3 KEEPALIVE_TIMEOUT: Eddie Library Session invalidated: KEEPALIVE_TIMEOUT 01 Jan 2020 17:53:15 UTC [Info] VPN error detected.

  7. I have a Motorola G5 Plus with Android 8.1 AirVPN keeps disconnecting every so often and I don't know how to fix this. Below are the logs. log.pdf
  8. Hi, Currently in europe connected to UK server via VPN. Confirmed by ipleak.net showing all ok. However, website such as BBC reverts to .com version (rather than .co.uk version) and various apps (sky, iplayer) won't work. Checked location (was ok) and even turned it off- all to no effect. anybody any idea what I am missing? Using Samsung Android tablet. all suggestions gratefully received! Thanks.
  9. Hello! (New user here, I just swtiched to AirVPN recently) Whenever I turn off the screen of my phone my connection to my VPN either pauses/closes. Only when I turn on the screen again will it try to connect. Sometimes it just works, but often I have to manually reconnect :/ This is also a big problem since I'm not getting many notifications (no internet) and streaming music or such doesn't work either. Would it be possible to add a setting to always stay connected? As in stay connected even though my screen is off. (Android 10, Eddie - OpenVPN GUI 2.4)
  10. Is it possible (using Eddie or other clients) to get an OpenVPN connection to AirVPN through an SSL tunnel specifically on an Android mobile device? My telco throttles OpenVPN traffic over its cellular network so I need to route this through an SSL tunnel to mask it. This is supported on the Eddie desktop client for Windows, but doesnt appear to be supported on the Android client. Thank you very much in advance!
  11. I have tried to use an ovpn-config from my pfsense with the Eddie-app. I have tried several client export formats on the pfsense, but Eddie does not accept the opvn-files. So I assume mulit-provider-suppurt is not available in the android app right now?
  12. I have changed the settings to use a different port other than 443, however using quick connect it still always connects to 443.
  13. Hi, I've always been able to use Quick Connect in the Android client but now it just says "End of server list reached. No server available for connection". I can connect to all my favorites without problem from the server tab so it's not like there's no servers available. What am I missing?
  14. After trying every free VPN on PC and Android that never matched my expectations with not enough data available or too slow, i wanted to try some paid VPN to see if it was better but most of them only give minimum a month with money back guarantee plans which looks like forced selling, so i dug and read every review and i found that AirVPN proposed a cheap 3 days trial so i could try it fully to see what it is like and it was excellent, even better than my connection without VPN, i could do streaming, torrenting, on my ArchLinux PC, my wife's Ubuntu based Linux PC, on my smartphone, it is very easy to use, a very good service for a very good price, so i took 3 months the first day of my 3 days trial and i will surely continue as long as the quality of the service is the same. Good job, this is what i was looking for in a VPN, i am a very satisfied customer.
  15. Hi, After I started to run the Eddie for Android I noticed that I was not getting any messages or calls in Signal Messenger. I also had problems with some apps on my Android Wear watch like weather that wouldn't update. As soon as I closed the VPN connection I got a stream of Signal messages and notifications and the weather app on my watch worked again. This makes it totally impractical for me to use the Eddie for Android if that setting is enabled. So I decided to disable it and get a serious warning that security was compromised. I have used the OpenVPN Connect app with AirVPN for a while without such problems. Maybe that client doesn't have the Persistent Tunnel settings? Anyway, if it turns out I have to have Persistent Tunnel set I just can't use Eddie for Android since apps and services I use all day just doesn't work. There should be a warning that the Persistent Tunnel setting may cause apps and services to not work on the phone. I now run without it and feel compromised but do not know whether I'm more compromised than I was using the OpenVPN Connect client or other VPN services on Android. Could someone who knows more about these things than I do please clarify and explain the thinking behind the setting and the warning when it's being disabled. //C
  16. Hello everyone I'm currently on a trial, and set up AirVPN successfully both on my NAS and Android terminal. So far, everything is working nicely. The one thing I couldn't do until now is getting my phone to connect to the VPN at boot. I've read that it was only available for OpenVPN profiles, so I imported one as well. However, on startup, nothing happens. As I'm in Always-On mode, I get a notification stating that no VPN connection has been established. When I open the Eddie app for the first time after reboot, it does connect to the profile by itself, but I still need to open the app manually. My device is a Nokia 7 Plus, running Android P. Perhaps unrelated question, but what are the "Authentication" settings used for ? (the ones between DNS and System sections). I did already put my airvpn credentials above, along with the master password.
  17. A german IT security blogger recently discovered that NordVPN's official android app transmits personally identifiable information to NordVPN and a few third parties. The checked version of their app is v3.9.8 which seems a few versions behind the current branch but still fairly recent. The blogger discovered that a user's Google mail address along with the advertising ID and a bit of other info are sent to Iterable, AppsFlyer and Tune along with some Google services like Analytics - all seemingly without the user's consent and even without mentioning it in the app's ToS. Of course customer support has been asked as well. Their answer was not satisfactory: Everyone interested in some of the HTTP POSTs discovered can look at them in the article linked above. The article itself is German-language, but it doesn't contain more info than this, only a bit of the writer's opinion which I share: It's very questionable that a "no-log" or even "privacy-centered" VPN provider like NordVPN is bold enough to state "marketing reasons" as their justification to track users of their Android app. Even worse that this tracking is performed by third parties who will most likely use this data in cross-referencing... Try to avoid NordVPN. Searching for "NordVPN" in this forum alone will yield more than enough reason. One in three newly created threads is about them.
  18. I use PCLinuxOS with Eddie and do not notice Eddie requiring me to relog in every 20-30 minutes. On my Android device it seems I'm re-logging in every 20 to 30 minutes. Retyping my password, clicking on quick connect. I'm wondering if other Android users are having the same problem. Thank you for your time in reading this thread.
  19. Hello, I was messing around with a local web page hosted on my raspberry pi for local projects, and using that web page works fine from my pc which has an ethernet cable to my router. However when I try to access the page with my android phone, I cannot connect to the web page. I can also not reach my router admin page from my android device, something that DOES work on my pc... All three devices: pc, android phone, raspberry pi are running on AirVPN. The moment I disconnect from the VPN, I can access the admin panel and the website from my phone. Is there a way to make devices connected via wifi while using the VPN able to access my router / other local machines? Thanks in advance.
  20. Hello, I run Android 7.0 on an LG K10 smartphone. When I switched from OpenVPN to Eddie things worked out fine at first. I haven't messed around with the settings or anything, but now I notice that Eddie will disconnect from the VPN and logout without warning, thus leaving my phone exposed. Is it just me? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Best regards
  21. Hi, Application Version: 2.0.1 Could someone please try to change the port or protocol settings within the Android Eddie Client as I seem to change the settings then when trying to connect and it just connects using Port 443 and UDP. This seems to be a bug for me and I would like to confirm it with someone else. Thanks.
  22. Hi, The Problem: Testing my connection speed outside of the VPN results in speeds of circa 50-75Mbps, however, in the VPN (through the Eddie client and a standard OpenVPN application) results in speeds of circa 5-10Mbps. Test conditions: Software: Android 9 Device: Oneplus 6T Network: EE (Max plan) Attempted Solutions: Changing to a wide range of servers (different countries and different servers within the same country)Changing the portChanging the Encryption methodologyChanging Phones (seems to have the same issue with a Samsung S7 edgeI am open to suggestions as to why I seems to be throttled only when on my mobile connection as when I'm on my home Wifi the connection is near enough the smart regardless of the VPN. Thanks.
  23. Hi, I just installed most recent Eddie 2.x for Android on my phone and I like it very much! One important issue though. I'd like to have access to my local (home) network (e.g.192.168.x.x) with the tunnel enabled, as I use my device also as a remote for some home/local network services. Unfortunately Eddie Android does not allow that. Yes, I read about blacklisting the apps to make sure they are excluded of the tunnel, but honestly I find that rather inconvenient and clumsy. Is there another way? Is it possible to exclude/blacklist an IP range such as my home network like it seems to function that way in the desktop client? Kind regards, ZS
  24. Does Android 9 (Pie) fully support IPv6? I'm wondering because I'm not sure which options to choose in AirVPN's Config Generator. Should I choose "IPv4 only," "IPv4 & IPv6 (connect with IPv4)," or "IPv4 & IPv6 (connect with IPv6)?" Right now, I'm using an AirVPN configuration with just IPv4. But, I'm wondering if one of the IPV6 options might be a better choice.
  25. I installed V1 of the Eddie client for Android on my Fire TV. I also activated an ovpn file. I kept the default configuration plus a whitelist of just a couple of apps to test. The client starts normally and connects, I can see in the little stats box that there is some minimum traffic, but after a few seconds, probably 30 or 60 at most it says the VPN tunnel has been locked. When I look in the logs it says there was an error and that it changed state to Lock VPN. I think it says it's event 14. The only way to get out of the lock is to disconnect and reconnect, but a few seconds later the error happens again. For what it's worth I use this other client successfully: http://plai.de/android/ Being a fire tv I'm not even sure how to export full logs. Any ideas?
