  1. 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
  2. Hi all, i have some issues with my openvpn for android client. i followed the instructions in the how-to section to setup openvpn for android. everything worked fine but: first issue: i get reconnects every few minutes and second issue: when i check for dnsleaks on ipleak.net everything looks smooth. no leak. i see airvpn exitip and airvpndns. but when i visit airvpn.org i see on top of the site my real ipv6 address. someone can tell me how to solve this errors? regards
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. 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.

  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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!
  10. 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.)
  11. 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....
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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?
  16. 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.
  17. 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?
  18. 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
  19. Very interesting paper here: ​ ​ http://blog.csiro.au/tinker-torrentor-streamer-spy-vpn-privacy-alert/ ​ ​No mention of AirVPN, though.
  20. It would be nice to see a mobile app of Eddie for Android/IOS. The OpenVPN app is not really easy to use for non technical people. Air did make a great job to make a simple manual, but altough people with less technical skills only want to push a button to connect. Some friends of mine even don't have a computer and use only tabelts and there smartphones. Because they don't understand how the Openvpn app works and don't want to read a manual they use other VPN vproviders like Nordvpn, ipvanish or even betternet because it's free an simple to use. Has Air any plans to develop a mobile app?
  21. Hello, I'm using "OpenVPN Settings" on Android, because of an unfixed bug of Android which completely prevents me from using OpenVPN for Android. So I am sorry that I cannot use the recommended app. I created an "Android" config file in the client area, but my first problem is that "/sbin/ip" was not found: iproute was at "/system/bin/ip" instead. I figured out that adding `iproute /system/bin/ip` to my ovpn config file fixed this. Now the openvpn successfully connects either from terminal using `openvpn <filename.ovpn` or using OpenVPN Settings app. But, my browser is still going straight to the web from my mobile network. My IP address is still my normal IP address when I look it up, though OpenVPN logs appear normal and successfully connected. I have tried adding 'redirect-gateway' to the config file but it doesn't work. I would love some support making this connection successful and secure as I would like to use my phone through VPN only for some tasks. I have attached my logs. Thanks!
  22. My phone is connected to AirVPN via OpenVPN for Android. Most websites are fooled by the VPN, but when I ask google directly (OK Google), it shows my actual IP address. I do not have this issue on my PC. What can I do about this? Thanks in advance.
  23. Hi, I am having trouble getting AirVPN running on: - Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G900F) - Android 6.0.1 - rooted using OpenVPN for Android by Arne Schwabe. I have created a .ovpn file using Chrome Android (creating such a file in Firefox Android also gives this problem) and followed the instructions here: https://airvpn.org/topic/11476-using-airvpn-with-openvpn-for-android/ When I try to start the newly made profile in OpenVPN for Android, I can see a dialog appearing for a split second, before seeing it disappear. Log: VPN API permission dialog cancelled My question is: How can I remedy this issue and connect to AirVPN on my Android device? Thanks in advance, Arceon
