  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  3. 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?
  4. Tutorial: SSH-Tunneled VPN on Stock Android 0. Notes - no proprietary / commercial apps required. FOSS only! (Free and Open Source Software) - no root / custom ROM required - tested on Android 4.4.4 - minimum requirement: Android 4.x 1. Required apps - OpenVPN for Android - ConnectBot (any advanced SSH client will work, ) - CyanogenMod File Manager (or pick any file manager you like) I highly recommend installing all of these apps via F-Droid, a Free Open Source Software platform: https://f-droid.org/ In order to install F-Droid, you may need to temporarily "Allow installation of apps from unknown sources" in Android's security settings. 2. Generate config files Use the AirVPN Generator (https://airvpn.org/generator/) to create SSH config files for Linux (not Android). Only pick one specific server. Screenshot #1: http://i.imgur.com/FWcuXH2.jpg 3. Transfer config files We only need 2 out of the 3 generated files: - sshtunnel.key - the .ovpn profile Screenshot #2: http://i.imgur.com/p2L7T0l.jpg Transfer both of them to your Android's sdcard. Also, open the .ovpn file in a text editor and look for a line that starts with "route", it contains the server's IP - we will need it in step 5. Example: route net_gateway That's the IP we will need. 4. Import key file in ConnectBot Launch ConnectBot. Go into menu and "Manage Pubkeys". Screenshot #3: https://i.imgur.com/uGT3UgC.jpg Import the sshtunnel.key file. Screenshot #4: https://i.imgur.com/ZPYhI6V.jpg 5. Configure SSH connection in ConnectBot Go to ConnectBot's main screen. At the bottom of the screen, enter: sshtunnel@ (Notice, that's the IP we took note of in step 3). Screenshot #5A: http://i.imgur.com/ludTDgv.jpg If the default port 22 is blocked, you can try an alternative port by appending it at the end: sshtunnel@ or sshtunnel@ - Press Enter on your keyboard. It will try to connect and ask you to continue. Choose "Yes". Screenshot #5B: http://i.imgur.com/UJNpB9n.jpg - Cancel the connection, we need to configure it now. Long-press the newly created connection and choose "Edit host". Screenshot #6: https://i.imgur.com/n3OtM2D.jpg - Change "Use pubkey authentication" to "sshtunnel.key". Screenshot #7: https://i.imgur.com/CwfFSoO.jpg - Disable the option "Start shell session" Screenshot #8: https://i.imgur.com/l2niHqG.jpg - Consider enabling the option "Stay connected". 6. Configure SSH port forwarding - Go to ConnectBot's main screen. - Long-press the new connection again, but this time choose "Edit port forwards". "Add port forward" with the following values: Type: Local Source port: 1412 Destination: Screenshot #9: https://i.imgur.com/TBnsKQx.jpg - Press "Create port forward". Configuration of the SSH connection is now complete. - Go back to ConnectBot's main screen and tap the connection entry to establish a connection. Leave the ConnectBot app using your "home" button. 7. Import OpenVPN config - Launch "OpenVPN for Android" - Tap the folder icon. In the "Open from" dialog, choose "File Manager" Screenshot #10: https://i.imgur.com/Nhc6fDa.jpg - Pick the AirVPN_...SSH-22.ovpn file - OpenVPN will present you with an "import log", tap the "Save" file to accept. - You may want to dive into the new profile's settings, go to "ROUTING" and enable "Use default route". - in the ALLOWED APPS tab, find and select ConnectBot to exclude it from OpenVPN's routing 8. Start OpenVPN connection - In OpenVPN's main screen, tap the VPN profile to establish the connection. - Provided that the SSH connection is still running, OpenVPN will be able to connect. Congratulations 9. How to connect / disconnect from now on When establishing a connection, always - start the SSH connection first - then launch OpenVPN When disconnecting, always - disconnect the OpenVPN connection first - then disconnect SSH in ConnectBot 10. Thoughts on reliabilty and firewalling If avoiding network leaks is important to you: be careful on Android, especially on unreliable mobile or WiFi networks that might cause the connection to collapse quite often. I don't have a solution for this potential issue on stock Android, but if you're on a rooted device, you should absolutely consider installing AFWall+ (available in F-Droid). AFWall+ allows you to firewall individual apps, restricting their network access to VPN-only. (You have to dive into its settings to enable VPN mode). Finally: Good luck!
  5. 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

  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. 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

  12. 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.
  13. 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?
  14. 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.

  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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!
  19. 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.)
  20. 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....
  21. 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
  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. 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
  24. 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?
  25. 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.
