  1. Hello everyone. I had a question for the forums today. Is it possible to run Eddie (or any other way to connect to AirVPN) on Tails OS? For those who do not know, Tails is a Linux based OS that is very secure and routes all connections through Tor. However, if I am not mistaken, since there is no VPN in that setup, the operator of the Tor relay node can see your actual IP, yes? So, is it possible to use AirVPN on Tails? I tried earlier but it gave me some sort of error when I tried to run the Eddie client's file. Also, will using a VPN on Tails make me more secure? If so, what are the benefits of doing so?
  2. Hi everbody, I wanna use VPN over TOR but there is no Internet traffic after successfully VPN connection. Besides VPN connection disconnects almost after 1 minute because of TCP connection timeout. I've configured proxies from Advanced section of NetworkManager and I'm using SOCKS protocol as proxy type. I'm using Linux OS and NetworkManager to manage my network interfaces and VPN connections. My OpenVPN version is 2.3.0. I've already read this manuel but I couldn't find any solution. Is there any suggestion to overcome this problem? https://airvpn.org/tor/ Solution: - Use Eddie client, - Enable control port and cookie authentication in your torrc file as described at this URL https://airvpn.org/tor/ - Set Tor as connection mode in AirVPN -> Preferences, don't use TCP + Socks Proxy as me (my first mistake) - Be careful with the port numbers; because default port numbers in manuel and Eddie client are respectively 9150 and 9151 but in my torrc file they are 9050, 9051 and it's very easy to overlook for example my situation. (my second mistake) - You can export ovpn configuration file which is special for "VPN over TOR" from Eddie client, so you can use that file to connect VPN from command line using openvpn command. For me it's more easy than using Eddie client.
  3. I am having a bit of trouble editing the resolv.conf file. Aparently, I cant edit it manually as suggested on the Arch wiki. "To use alternative DNS servers, edit /etc/resolv.conf and add them to the top of the file so they are used first, optionally removing or commenting out already listed servers." https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Resolv.conf Although I can open the file and edit it, I can't save the nameservers I entered. (I am as admin with root privileges.) I thought maybe it was being run by another process so I tried lsattr and nothing was holding it. I even ran chattr -i /etc/resolv.conf just to make sure. Still no avail.
  4. Here's the simple problem that I don't know how to fix. I'm trying to use VPN over Tor (User -> Tor -> VPN -> Net). It works fine but I also don't want any traffic to leak so I need to use the network lock. If I activate the network lock, Tor can't connect to the Tor network. That means the AirVPN software can't connect to the VPN service because it needs to route through Tor first and that can't happen because the network lock prevents Tor from establishing a circuit. What to do? ​
  5. Starting this morning, my RPI servers started experiencing disconnects. I have to run tcp client, since UDP on 443 seems to get messed with somehow. Is there a fix? Everything has been working with TCP But suddenly, began disconnecting and reconnecting almost immediately again and again. Thankfully, I am sorted now. Based on info in the forums about possible DNS hijacking, I changed my openvpn config to Canada from all North America and for greater certainty reset my iptables rules from the latest client. Best way to do this, I found is by running the latest client on my linux laptop, exporting the rules using (as root) >iptables-save > iptables_2016-03-12.saved That generates a file that can be loaded on any linux box using: >iptables-restore <iptables_2016-03-12.saved then remembering to do: > sudo netfilter-persistent save This guarantees the network lock persists across reboots. My connections have been up 40 minutes and an hour plus since then. Anybody else notice anything?
  6. Hi, I currently have an old Laptop I am trying to use as an intermediary box between my main home network and my personal machines connected to a particular switch. I want these machines to be connected to the VPN at all times, from startup to shutdown, and to have protection from the network dropping, etc. I honestly tried using pfSense but I just could not wrap my head around it, even the default install when connected to my modem directly and a single test machine, could not even properly resolve DNS queries. So I gave up and threw mint on the laptop and enabled ICS instead. Works great, test box connected to it has internet, etc. Now the trouble comes when I want to use AirVPN. I can't use Network lock and I don't know how to resolve the issue in terms of letting me get my local machines access again. I've already verified AirVPN works over the ICS without the network lock on. I've very minorly futzed with trying to add "allowed IPs" and such in advanced options, but either didn't do it in the right place / correctly etc. Because it still blocks access. Could anyone help with some troubleshooting steps, where / how I need to change things? Thanks
  7. Im running Lubuntu, and i would like to keep network lock active, even when airVPN client is closed. I accidentally close the program, which caused me to leak my IP. Could someone please give me specific steps on how to achieve this thanks
  8. Hello, I'm using Archlinux with Privoxy as my proxy. I downloaded the config file for the terminal and set it up so that port 8118 is used for proxy (which is the one Privoxy uses). I am using TCP-443. At first glance everything seems to be in order, but I have never been able to connect in the past few days. I also have good wifi signal. In anycase, the logs suggest to me that the problem lies with the server. But I can not be certain. I am dumping the logs here, can you make any sense out of them? What do you think is the problem? Many thanks!
  9. Hello, I'm using Debian Linux with AirVPN client over Tor network (with Vidalia control panel). Finally, he can connect and verify login&password, but fail on connect to server.

  10. Hi AirVPN community ... Im a bit noobs with kali (and linux also but i try my best to install it via some tutorials and forums (install network-manager-openvpn-gnome) ... but after i see this post : https://airvpn.org/topic/12509-kali/ ... i know that seem to be the answer to my problem but the tutorial is a bit too geek for me ... so maybe someone can help me with this ... to much dependencies and no command how to make it ;( its working with network-manager but staff let me know that is buggy and my connection is always on and off or disconnect for no reason ... (dns leaks) ... so i want to start the good way and remove all this buggy stuff ... thanks for your time CT
  11. I've setup a Ubuntu 15.10 64bit server as a VM for my torrenting, I'm running openvpn from the command line using a config file generated from this site. When my torrents are running I see a lot of error like below: I've disabled port forwarding on my router just to check if that was causing an issue but it doesn't seem to make a difference. I've tested downloading a torrent with openvpn running on my physical laptop using the same config file and on a Xubuntu VM and I only this error once ever few minutes so its definitely something on the Ubuntu server VM that's causing the problem. Any ideas what the issue is?
  12. I've been running Fedora 22 for a while and had to install beesu in order to get Eddie functioning,however having beesu installed is causing me issues when it comes to upgrading to Fedora 23. I'm thinking of going to OpenSuse KDE but will I need to install beesu on Open Suse in order to get Eddie working? I'm open to all ideas here as I'm still a Linux noob so the more input the better. Thanks
  13. I'm testing AirVPN on Linux Mint 17.3 using the .deb package that I found on the Air site. I had used three other VPN services and always had debilitating speed issues, especially when using AES-256-CBC (OpenVPN). I decided to try AirVPN. I installed the .deb files with the client. I am on the East coast of the US. I tried a Pennsylvania server and the speed was not very good. (I get an average of 25 Mbps download speed through my ISP without the VPN.) I then tried two other servers in the US and I'm getting up to 25 Mbps on three different speed tests. My IP is anonymous and there is no DNS leakage or IPv6 leakage. But after my previous experiences, I'm suspicious of the speeds I'm registering using some of the AirVPN US based servers. It makes me wonder whether encryption is being used, and if so, to what level. I haven't found a way to check that. I'm going to try Wireshark to see if the connection is encrypted. Does anyone have any ideas about this? Thank you.
  14. I was suffering this problem for a long time in the past, but now I have found the reason for it and I want to share this - maybe it could help someone. I was using different Linux versions of portable Eddie-Clients (x64) and I had this issue when Eddie failed to start sometimes at first try after system reboot, so I had to kill 'airvpn' process as root and restart it again. It happened about 1 time out of 5 and it was a bit annoying to be honest. I experienced this issue on different Linux distros: Linux Mint, Linux Mint Debian Edition 1 and 2... Now I have found the reason for this: I was running portable Eddie from a NTFS formatted drive - I was needed this drive to be Windows-compatible at that time, but now I don't. So, about a week ago I formatted it to Ext4 and now portable Eddie starts everytime without problem! The conclusion is: Linux version of portable Eddie sometimes fails to start from NTFS filesystem. That's it. I just wanted to inform everybody.
  15. Is it possible to make sure the vpn is running as soon as possible at computer boot? Like, before logging in, if possible? I have Noetwork Manager set to require the vpn when connecting to wifi, is that enough? I'm on Linux Mint Thank you!
  16. Hello, I'm having a really weird issue. I initially had ufw setup, but my speeds were horrendous. Pings all worked well everywhere with good latency, but connecting (www, ssh, etc) to anything took forever! After trying many different servers I disabled my firewall, and BAM speeds were excellent. So I said screw it, lets try the network lock on the AirVPN GUI and there we go again with incredibly slow speeds. I'm running Ubuntu 15.10 if that matters, I'm all out of ideas any assistance would be appreciated as I really don't want to leave the firewall off.
  17. Hi all. I just signed up for service and am a newbie when it comes to this stuff. I am using Debian jessie, and have successfully installed the AirVPN client. How do I set up my torrent client (Transmission) and my browser to utilize AirVPN's services? Thanks!
  18. Hello, I am not currently using AirVPN but I had a few questions before I signed up. Is it possible to get a dynamic port using a bash script? With one VPN I am using, they use a https url that returns a port. Another uses a hash function of your local IP address. From reading the FAQs it appears you must re-confirm the port every 24 hours which is far too much work for me. Is it possible to get a port dynamically using a script and renew it the same way? Thanks,
  19. Hey guys! Pretty new to the AirVPN forums, though I've been using the service itself for a while now... I'm not exactly sure where to air mild grievances about the client, so shuffle this post around if you have to. I use a tiling window manager on my linux setup, which doesn't show any window decorations (title bars, minimize buttons, etc.). I rely primarily on standardized keystrokes to close windows... I would love if Ctrl+Q quit the client as if I navigated the menu to exit. Thanks for everthing!
  20. Hello. I am brand new to using mono. Been using Arch Linux a long time though. I installed the package from the aur and was wondering if there is any way to increase the font size? I am having a hard time reading it (my eyes aren't what they used to be). Does this require the program be recompiled? I don't mind hacking on it to get the desired outcome but I definitely need some help with that. While we are on that subject is there any way to theme this application differently. I did a search for fonts on this forum and didn't see any similar topics. When searching online I did not find anything mono theme related besides gtk themes with mono in the name hahaha. Thanks for reading.
  21. Hello, Since the installation of Eddy on my OpenSuse is not working i tried to connect with my networkmanager. I downloaded the ovpn files and when i import one of them in my networkmanager it seems connecting to a server but when i login at airvpn.org it says I'm not connected? Also when i check my ip it's still the same one of my own ISP.
  22. Hi there, I am fairly new to Linux and also to AirVPN. I am using the AirVPN client on 64 bit Linux Mate, running Transmission on my machine trying to set up remote access so I can view the web interface remotely. I have a DNS running on my Raspberry Pi so I am attempting to use my domain (for example 2Girls1CPU.mooo.com:9091) to access the web UI. I have tested the DNS, through port 22 to SSH into my raspberry pi to confirm that it is working. Here is what I have tried: Initially I set up remote access in Transmission. I had the port as 9091, with authentication and no whitelist of IP addresses. Then I went into AirVPN client area and set up a port forwarding rule. Obviously 9091 was taken, so I just created a random port, forwarded through TCP (I've tried UDP, as well as both TCP and UDP). Then I took that random port, say 27364 and entered it into the remote access settings in Transmission. I also went into my port forwarding rules in my router and added a rule to forward 27364 to my Laptop running AirVPN and Transmission (say External and internal port both the same obviously. Now with this setup, I would assume when I try to access port 27364 (with 2Girls1CPU.mooo.com:27364) - my VPN would forward that to my router port 27364, which would then forward to I may be completely wrong as I do not have a solid understanding of networking and port forwarding, but this setup did not work. One thing that confused me was under the port forwarding rules on AirVPN client area, it says "Forwarded to 10.x.x.x". Why is this being forwarded to an IP with a 10. ip range? Should it not be forwarded to my internal IP? Or how exactly does that work? I'm probably missing something here, but I just can't work it out. I'm not sure how the port forwarding within AirVPN works. If anyone could give me some insight it would be greatly appreciated. One more thing I am wondering - how safe is it to have a port forwarded like I am attempting while using AirVPN? Is there any potential for leaks? Thanks! -2Girls1CPU
  23. As in the title,is there an RPM linux equivalent to the windows vpn watcher tool? Or is it all about firewall rules? Thanks.
  24. Hi, I'm interested on use a vpn to get access to restricted sites on a local network with a moderate high speed bandwidth, I've been using a different vpn to fulfill this, but recently only use linux so I need an alternative to my previous vpn, I tried to connect with the client inside the network but got error 417, on an unrestricted network didn't get the error, instead got the message 'Subscription required'. I searched the 417 error on internet but didn't understood the answers so I'm asking here how can I solve this problem?, also is there any trial service to test the service to allow me connect and download on a restricted network before any purchase?.
  25. I've followed the instructions for building the AirVPN client here, and it seems to run just fine. The downloaded copy doesn't seem to like the newer version of Mono I'm running, but building it on my machine seems to work ok when I run it (so far). How do I make a .deb package or otherwise install it? I've tried the Tools|Build Package, but that gets me a tar.gz file which I'm really not sure about, and I'm also unsure as to exactly which segments I need to select anyway.
