  1. Hi I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S8+ running Android 8.0 and having issues with the VPN disconnecting after a few minutes (<1 hour) of not using the device. This happens with both OpenVPN for Android & the Eddie - OpenVPN GUI. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling OpenVPN for Android as well as deleted the config files and redownloaded them, but still doing so. Power Saving mode is off & I've also tried switching to other modes (Game/Entertainment/High performance). Does anyone know why/how to fix this? Apologies if this has already been discussed in another post/thread, I had a look but couldn't find anything, happy to use such a thread if you can point me to it. Thank you.
  2. I am using the Eddie for Android latest version, and with the IPv6 setting set to "request", and when I connect to one of the IPv6 enabled servers such as Capricornus, I do not have IPv6 connectivity, only IPv4. ipleak.net only shows the VPN IPv4 address, and I am unable to view IPv6 only sites such as ipv6.google.com. how can I fix this and be able to use the VPN'S IPv6 address?
  3. Hello. I live in the US and have been using VPN services here fine for around 2 years, but next week I am planning on going on a 3 week trip to Iran and am only bringing my mobile phone (Samsung Galaxy S9+ running Android 8.0.0) . I would like to know which VPN protocols, ports, and locations would be best for me to use while in Iran both in terms of effectively blocking censorship, and also in speed. Thank you
  4. Hi, I just switched from another VPN provider to AirVPN. I got a little nervous when I relaized that the Linux client was Java based, but I'm over the "shock" watching the World Cup without any problems. I use VPN a lot on Android as well and see that there's no dedicated AirVPN client. I have found documentation for setting up the OpenVPN clients for Android to use AirVPN. I have tried the OpenVPN Connect client and it seems to work good. However, I was wondering if there's some consensus around here which OpenVPN client works best with AirVPN on Android, or if they all do the same thing with a some UI and feature differences?
  5. Hi, I would like to use AirVPN on my Android device but am concerned about leaking. I have seen some posts on here about using AfWall+ and was wondering if this is the best way to go. Android now also natively has a kind of Network Lock feature. But then there is also the boot leak (discussed here, along with providing a userinit script for droidwall to disable network connectivity during boot and also a script to prevent Google portal capture during wifi connection: https://blog.torproject.org/mission-impossible-hardening-android-security-and-privacy). My thinking is to use OpenVPN on the latest Lineage OS and would appreciate any assistance on the matter. Thank you.
  6. I know this has been asked before and was resolved by other means like configuring the VPN to work with specific applications. But I would like to see socks5 proxies supported because, android only allows one vpn at a time and most ad blockers work by creating a vpn. Thus meaning you cannot use air vpn alongside an android ad blocker like AdGuard or DNS66 etc but, you can use a proxy. ADS REMOVED - STAFF Thanks
  7. Hello. I’m trying to figure out how to import and use SSL or SSH on iOS and Android using the OpenVPN client. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong but I can’t even get a connection to any server. any ideas on how to get this working?
  8. Hello, I recently installed Antergos Linux (Arch Linux) on my main Computer and my Laptop. So I downloaded the Config files and tried to run them with the default openvpn. I cannot establish a connection. The resulting error is: Thu Feb 1 12:47:55 2018 OpenVPN 2.4.4 x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu [sSL (OpenSSL)] [LZO] [LZ4] [EPOLL] [PKCS11] [MH/PKTINFO] [AEAD] built on Sep 26 2017 Thu Feb 1 12:47:55 2018 library versions: OpenSSL 1.1.0g 2 Nov 2017, LZO 2.10 Thu Feb 1 12:47:55 2018 Outgoing Control Channel Authentication: Using 160 bit message hash 'SHA1' for HMAC authentication Thu Feb 1 12:47:55 2018 Incoming Control Channel Authentication: Using 160 bit message hash 'SHA1' for HMAC authentication Thu Feb 1 12:47:55 2018 RESOLVE: Cannot resolve host address: switzerland.vpn.airdns.org:443 (Name or service not known) Thu Feb 1 12:47:55 2018 RESOLVE: Cannot resolve host address: switzerland.vpn.airdns.org:443 (Name or service not known) Thu Feb 1 12:47:55 2018 Could not determine IPv4/IPv6 protocol Thu Feb 1 12:47:55 2018 SIGUSR1[soft,init_instance] received, process restarting Thu Feb 1 12:47:55 2018 Restart pause, 5 second(s) I tried it on my Android device where I also have the config files from before a month.

  9. SOLVED. Hi all, I'm trying to connect my Android phone over SSL using this well written guide https://airvpn.org/topic/24349-how-to-airvpn-via-sslstunnel-on-android-678/ Stunnel fires up fine but VPN does not. Log file attached. Air log SSL Android.txt Thanks.
  10. Since it is not very easy to use a VPN from countries like Iran a recorded a tutorial on how to use airvpn from these countries: https://usefulvid.com/bypass-the-persian-and-chinese-firewall-by-using-airvpn-with-ssl/ The videos are hosted on my website and on youtube. The reason is that it is not possible to access youtube from Iran. https://youtu.be/jl8I2-GQF94 It would be nice if you could share this with your friends in Iran, China, Turkey, Russia, UAE, Saudi Arabia and provide feedback if this method works. You can also download this video from my website to make it easier to share and spread the word. A video on how to use stunnel on android will follow and also published on this site. Update on 6.1.2018: The Video for Android is finally published: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwf5JI6t0TI For all who suffer from youtube censorship this is the link for you: https://usefulvid.com/bypass-the-persian-and-chinese-firewall-by-using-airvpn-with-ssl/ Second Video on the page
  11. Goal We want to use AirVPN's SSL tunneling mode on Android. SSL tunneling can be very useful, especially to defeat firewalls that block OpenVPN or SSH on a protocol level. We will use the Termux Terminal Emulator to install and run stunnel and OpenVPN for Android to manage the OpenVPN connection. Requirements Android 6.0 or newer (5.0 and derivatives thereof such as FireOS should work too)the Android device does not have to be rootedGoogle PlayStore or the free & open source F-Droid market (recommended)OpenVPN for Android (FOSS) – or Air's official Eddie Android Edition Please stay tuned for future Eddie releases as they may include native SSL tunnel support (which would make this cumbersome guide unnecessary)Termux Terminal Emulator (FOSS)stunnel (FOSS), via Termux repositorya separate computer to download/edit the config files (entirely optional, but recommended) Setup instructions Part 1: generate AirVPN config files 1/7: open AirVPN's config generator. When asked for your operating system, pick Linux: 2/7: Choose servers: Pick a single server. Do not select more than one. Do not select a whole region. 3/7: Protocols: First, enable Advanced Mode: Now select the SSL mode, port 443: 4/7: Accept Terms of Service and generate the config files: 5/7: Download the generated zip archive: 6/7: unzip AirVPN.zip and open the *.ssl file in a text editor. find this line: pid = /tmp/stunnel4.pid replace it with: pid = /data/data/com.termux/files/home/stunnel4.pid 7/7: Now transfer the AirVPN folder to your phone's sdcard / main storage directory. For ease of use, don't put it into any subdirectories. Instead, put it into your "root" storage directory, meaning on the same level as your other default Android folders such as Documents, Download and Movies. Part 2: Install and prepare Android software 1/3: Install OpenVPN for Android, via F-Droid or Play Store. Don't configure anything just yet. 2/3: Install Termux Terminal Emulator, via F-Droid or PlayStore open Termux and run: termux-setup-storageAllow Termux to access files on your device. (Android 8.0 Oreo users, please read the note at the end of this tutorial).The pkg command is used to install und update software packages. Make sure your base packages are all up to date: pkg upgradenow install stunnel: pkg install stunnel 3/3: Still in Termux, jump to the AirVPN folder you copied to your phone: cd storage/shared/AirVPNThe command lsshould list 3 files: AirVPN*.ovpn (the OpenVPN config file)AirVPN*.ssl (the stunnel config file)stunnel.crt (stunnel certificate)Now start stunnel: stunnel AirVPN*.ssl press the Home button to get out of Termux.Start OpenVPN and import the AirVPN*.ovpn config fileEdit your new OpenVPN connection (tap the "pencil button")in the ALLOWED APPS tab, tick the box next to Termuxreturn to OpenVPN's connection listyour VPN connection is now configured. A tap on its name will establish the connection.verify that a connection has been established by looking for the log entry Initialization Sequence Completedbrowse to ipleak.net (or any similar site) to verify that your traffic is indeed routed through the VPN tunnelHere's a short video, demonstrating the steps above: https://vimeo.com/246306477 Part 3: Usage instructions Now that everything is configured, future usage will be much easier: open Termuxnavigate to your AirVPN folder: cd storage/shared/AirVPNnow run stunnel: stunnel AirVPN*.sslPress the Home button and open the OpenVPN appConnect to your VPN profile Addendum: Tips as an alternative to OpenVPN for Android, you can also use Air's official Eddie Android edition. Don't forget to dive into Eddie's settings to exclude ("blacklist") Termux from the VPN tunnel.don't forget to periodically run pkg upgradeto keep all of Termux' packages, including stunnel, up-to-date.To prevent leaks, it's recommended to let OpenVPN set the default route for both IPv4 and IPv6; as well disabling the LAN bypass: you may want to take a look at Termux:Widget (via F-Droid or Play Store. It's an extension to Termux. If you put your stunnel commands into shell scripts, stored in ~/.shortcuts/ , you can launch them via Home screen widgets.enable Termux' extended keyboard by sliding out the left-side menu and long-pressing the KEYBOARD button. This will enable a row of additional keys, such as CTRL, ALT and TAB which are very useful in a terminal environment -- especially the TAB key, allowing you to autocomplete command and path names. Here's a short video on Vimeo demonstrating the extended keyboard.you may generate config files for as many servers as you like, put them into your AirVPN folder on your phone and add the *.ovpn profiles to OpenVPN.you may want to consider AFWall+ for additional firewalling (root required)it is recommended to move the *.ssl and stunnel.crt files out of Android's shared storage and into Termux' private data directory, while also deleting the no longer needed *.ovpn file: cd ~ mkdir st cd storage/shared/AirVPN cp *.ssl stunnel.crt ~/st rm *.ssl stunnel.crt *.ovpn Moving those files obviously changes the paths of your Termux commands. Instead of running: cd storage/shared/AirVPN stunnel AirVPN*.ssl You'd now need to run: cd ~/st stunnel AirVPN*.ssl Addendum: Caveats Following this tutorial will add the Termux app to OpenVPN's exclusion list, allowing it connect to the VPN server. But this also means that anything else you may do via Termux will also bypass the VPN tunnel. If you need a VPN-tunneled terminal app, I recommend using Termux only to run stunnel; using another terminal emulator app for your other tasks. Addendum: Testing and bugs This tutorial has been tested on: Stock Android 6.0Stock Android 7.0Stock Android 8.0LineageOS 14.1 (~ Android 7.1.x)Fire OS 5.6.0.0 (~ Android 5.x), testing done by user steve74it Important Notice for Android 8.0+ (Oreo) users: The command termux-setup-storage does not work (yet). Instead, follow this workaround to access storage: https://github.com/termux/termux-app/issues/157#issuecomment-246659496 The workaround will no longer be necessary once this bug is resolved: https://github.com/termux/termux-packages/issues/1578 EDIT LOG Thu Dec 7 20:24 UTC 2017: initial releaseThu Dec 7 20:40 UTC 2017: formatting correctionsThu Dec 7 20:58 UTC 2017: spellingFri Dec 8 18:47 UTC 2017: add recommended route settings. credit and thanks to Darkspace-HarbingerFri Jan 5 17:30 UTC 2018: add note that this guide is functional on FireOS 5.6 (Android 5.x). testing done by user steve74it, thank you!Mon Jan 22 18:34 UTC 2018: add mikevvl's security tip to move files out of shared storage. thank you!Sun Jul 15 12:16 UTC 2018: recommend against alternative VPN apps (thanks steve74it)Tue Jul 17 12:20 UTC 2018: mention Eddie compatibility (thanks steve74it) Any corrections, further testing, as well as general suggestions for improvement would be much appreciated.
  12. I installed OpenVPN and downloaded the connection info for a variety of locations and installed them per the instructions. I am using a Samsung Chromebook Pro. When I run OpenVPN and choose a location it appears to connect correctly and I see a "success" message with an IP address. However, when I check to see what my IP address is, it is not the one that OpenVPN is showing me, instead it is for the local ISP here where I am traveling (in this case Prague). I can't access a number of website for sports streaming apps because they claim I am outside of the territorial restrictions, which technically I guess I am, but that's the point of using the VPN. I never had an problems on my old Windows laptop. Is this just some weird Chromebook issue? It seems strange that OpenVPN is showing me success and an IP connection but my traffic doesn't seem to be using it.
  13. Hello everybody, i am using Eddi on my Computer and everything works fine. But on my mobile phone, the conections takes sometimes a lot of time. I saved 2 files via the config generator (one is all of Asia nd one is all of Europe), so I guess openvpn tests each server as long as it finds a one which works and connects, nevertheless if its a good (fast) one or not. Is there a better way to find a decent server and maybe keep that one for long time? Thank you very much for your help!
  14. First of all, I would like to declare that I read and implemented this post: https://airvpn.org/topic/11476-using-airvpn-with-openvpn-for-android/ On OpenVPN, I imported the config file that I generated through AirVPN, and when it comes to activating that config file, I just cannot confirm the dialogue box showing up. It is displaying that there is a connection request and OpenVPN for android wants to set up a VPN connection that allows it to monitor network traffic. I just cannot click OK when this dialogue box pops up... I tried all kinds of things that I thought would affect the result without any success such as giving storage permission to OpenVPN, generating the config file as both UDP and TCP, selecting platform as both Android and Linux, as well as selecting various servers. Don't know what else I can do. I even tried to directly connect to VPN without OpenVPN through Android VPN settings. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  15. I just installed OpenVPN for Android on my phone today. After some phone buggy-ness and fiddling, I got it all working. Cool. But I noticed that when connecting to AirVPN, I was never asked for my login+pw. Hmmm... Ok, I now figure the .ovpn files I generated and imported have some keys/certificates embedded that authenticate me personally as the user who needs to login/connect to AirVPN. If that's true, and if my phone is stolen, how can I invalidate those credentials of mine so the thief can't login to AirVPN as me? Will a simple password change on the AirVPN website do the trick? (Thanks, everyone.)
  16. Hello! I am having troubles trying to connect with openvpn (Android ) It worked fine until today....(I am not tech-savy at all) I already tried to uncheck the bypass option...And both TCP and UDP protocols. https://airvpn.org/topic/19934-openvpn-for-android-connection-refused/?hl=+connection%20+refused%20+code Thank you. EDIT: seems to work now....
  17. Hello, after a lot of trying around I am still having problems using AirVPN on my Phone. I get disconnected after maybe a minute and have to manually reconnect every time. I wish I could keep using AirVPN, but I need to use a VPN on my phone a lot and it's just too annoying to keep reconnecting every minute. Now I am wondering if anyone else is having problems like that? I believe I am not one of few people who need to use a VPN on their phone on a daily basis. Also, are there any plans of building an app? I don't want to sound arrogant or anything, neither am I afraid of some manual configurations, but is it technically that difficult for the AirVPN team to put up an app (that matches its standards)? Cheers
  18. I've noticed that the number of public WiFi operators making AirVPN unuseable is increasing. To be honest, I don't think it is specifically AirVPN being targeted. I can establish an outbound tunnel quickly and easily, but am then unable to connect to anything via the tunnel. When I look at the stats, the packet counters just stop incrementing. So far I've seen this behaviour with: BT WiFi (any flavour) - Never workedO2 WiFi (certain branded outlets, including Sainsbury, Asda)The Cloud (just started recently).Other providers (including my home broadband, guest wireless at work and (I think) IKEA) work fine so I think the config which comes directly from OpenVPN anyway is OK. Are they likely to be inspecting the traffic and discarding it because it's encrypted, or can it be resolved by reducing frame size, and/or using a different AirVPN transport?
  19. I am trying to follow the Android instructions but they are not working and some of the options are different than what is listed in the tutorial. When I click import - I am presented with 4 options to import a file - which one is correct? I made an assumption and selected Import Profile from SD card. The file is imported but there is no "trusted software" warning like in the tutorial. When I click the connect button, absolutely nothing happens. I appreciate any help you can offer.
  20. I'm running into some difficulties setting up Air VPN on my Android 6 phone. Following the directions detailed here https://airvpn.org/topic/11476-using-airvpn-with-openvpn-for-android/ I installed OpenVPN for Android, and created a config file from the Air VPN config generator, on Chrome. I created both UDP and TCP versions of the .ovpn files. However, when I opened OpenVPN for Android and attempted to import a VPN profile, the ovpn files in my downloads folder were grayed out. Also, it's been suggested that I append my logfiles, but I'm not sure how this is done. Anyone have any suggestions? I'd be grateful for any help anyone can give
  21. Was anyone surprised that this would eventually happen? Apple warned the public that such a tool if created would be leaked to the public and used in malicious activities Now that it has happened, has anyone learned their lesson? Doubtful. What are your thoughts on the subject?
  22. Hey, So today I notice that my connection through Android devices has stopped working. (Open vpn for android) It says it's connected but no data is being passed through so a Web page will eventually get a timed out error. Only happens on Android, the Windows client works as it should. Screenshot. 1st is initial connection the 2nd is after disconnection.
  23. Very interesting paper here: ​ ​ http://blog.csiro.au/tinker-torrentor-streamer-spy-vpn-privacy-alert/ ​ ​No mention of AirVPN, though.
  24. Hello, I've recently installed OpenVPN for Android (the open-source recommended choice) but I'm concerned about different issues. For instance, this app doesn't autostart at boot / reboot but has to be manually started. BTW Android uses wifi's previous state after reboot : when Wifi was "on" our real IP is visible until OpenVPN is manually started. When it crashes (it happens with the latest version) our real IP gets exposed too. I wonder if it could be possible to configure a firewall (AfWall+ or Droidwall) to block all the traffic excepting the one which transits through OpenVPN for both Wifi and data (3G/4G) ? These two apps are using iptables but I don't know how to write the custom rules matching my requirements. The help and knowledge of some computer savvy members would be appreciated. If it works we could maybe create a tutorial for the "How to" section of this forum ? I've collected several articles regarding Android and iptables but I've no idea how I could adapt all this for AirVPN .ovpn default config file (Europe). https://android.stackexchange.com/questions/14455/how-can-i-block-the-traffic-outside-the-vpn-even-if-the-vpn-is-down https://github.com/ukanth/afwall/wiki/Apps-leak-private-user-data-during-boot https://blog.torproject.org/blog/mission-impossible-hardening-android-security-and-privacy https://droidvpn.com/page/stopping-leaks-with-droidwall-when-using-droidvpn-8/ https://airvpn.org/faq/software_lock/ Any idea ? Thanks
  25. I was just wondering if it would be possible to set up AirVPN on my Amazon Fire Stick. My reason for doing this is that I wish to watch US Netflix programs and I am in the UK.
