  1. the .ovpn files from http://www.vpngate.net do not come with separated .certs and .key files, which are necessary to import them with nm-applet. nm-applet is the little GUI network manager tool in the system tray of debian and other Linuces. Now, the trick is simply to open, say, the downloaded vpngate_60.86.245.141_udp_1456.ovpn with a text editor and extract the 3 ASCII sections into 3 separate text files: ca.crt (changes like daily) user.crt user.key That's it ! Now import the .oVPN file from nm-applet GUI (add vpn ... from menu , create vpn with .ovpn-file etc.) and set those 3 certs and key. save it & you are good to go! This is the same procedure, incidentally, which you follow to set up an AirVPN, except these ship with crt & key separated already.
  2. As the title says, I'm trying to connect to AirVPN via OpenVPN on Linux but can't. I recently updated to OpenVPN 2.4.0, but it has worked since the update. I generated a config file with no separate keys/certs and ran `sudo openvpn /path/to/air.ovpn`, but this happened: Sat Dec 31 23:26:05 2016 OpenVPN 2.4.0 x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu [SSL (OpenSSL)] [LZO] [LZ4] [EPOLL] [PKCS11] [MH/PKTINFO] [AEAD] built on Dec 28 2016 Sat Dec 31 23:26:05 2016 library versions: OpenSSL 1.0.2j 26 Sep 2016, LZO 2.09 Sat Dec 31 23:26:05 2016 Outgoing Control Channel Authentication: Using 160 bit message hash 'SHA1' for HMAC authentication Sat Dec 31 23:26:05 2016 Incoming Control Channel Authentication: Using 160 bit message hash 'SHA1' for HMAC authentication Sat Dec 31 23:26:05 2016 TCP/UDP: Preserving recently used remote address: [AF_INET] Sat Dec 31 23:26:05 2016 Socket Buffers: R=[212992->212992] S=[212992->212992] Sat Dec 31 23:26:05 2016 UDP link local: (not bound) Sat Dec 31 23:26:05 2016 UDP link remote: [AF_INET] Sat Dec 31 23:27:05 2016 TLS Error: TLS key negotiation failed to occur within 60 seconds (check your network connectivity) Sat Dec 31 23:27:05 2016 TLS Error: TLS handshake failed Sat Dec 31 23:27:05 2016 SIGUSR1[soft,tls-error] received, process restarting Sat Dec 31 23:27:05 2016 Restart pause, 5 second(s) Sat Dec 31 23:27:10 2016 TCP/UDP: Preserving recently used remote address: [AF_INET] Sat Dec 31 23:27:10 2016 Socket Buffers: R=[212992->212992] S=[212992->212992] Sat Dec 31 23:27:10 2016 UDP link local: (not bound) Sat Dec 31 23:27:10 2016 UDP link remote: [AF_INET] ^CSat Dec 31 23:27:15 2016 event_wait : Interrupted system call (code=4) Sat Dec 31 23:27:15 2016 SIGTERM received, sending exit notification to peer Sat Dec 31 23:27:20 2016 SIGTERM[soft,exit-with-notification] received, process exiting My internet works fine, to my knowledge.

  4. I'm trying to get the Deluge daemon (deluged) to work with AirVPN on Linux. I'm using Deluge 1.3.13 and Openvpn 2.3.14. I forwarded port 14447 via client configuration with TCP & UDP and local port 58846 (what Deluge uses). I have attached my core.conf to this post. I disabled UPnP and NAT-PMP, and put listening port as 14447. However, upload speed is constant 0. Downloading seems to work, however. What do I need to change to get seeding working?
  5. Hello, While Airvnp works fine on MacOs, Kali Linux i386 and even Windows10, I just can't seem to get it working on Kali Linux 64. Eddie will not install either with the .dep or tar.gz packages (don't get me started with mono!), and using sudo ovpn will not get me connected. Does somebody else have this issue and maybe a workaround? Thx in advance and happy holidays!
  6. I am trying to use AirVPN to SSH into a computer. How do I do this? I have tried the .sh file I got from the SSH tutorial, but when I try to connect to the computer running it, I can never log in (permission denied). Trying to use OpenVPN as root with the .ovpn file caused errors about not being able to connect.
  7. Usage of operating systems is like living in countries: There are laws, things you may or may not do. Also, there are people, talking one or two certain languages, behaving in a certain way. Operating systems are like that: There are restrictions on the system what you can do and what is more difficult. And there is software, supporting certain languages, behaving in a certain way. You can of course decide to use two or more OSes, but it's like renting a holiday cottage and visiting it a few times a year. There's always home, as there's always a primary OS. I chose this simile because it reflects a bit of myself. I lived a certain amount of my lifetime in Russia, and now I live in Germany. Two different legal systems, two different kinds of people. As it is with switching my primary OS: I've been using Windows for a certain amount of time and now I switched to Linux. Why? Windows more and more gives me the feeling that it's nothing but a machine for procrastination and entertainment (besides being a cash cow for Microsoft). Like Facebook, where scrolling through your feed gives neither knowledge nor wisdom, it's only good at burning time. Also, Microsoft's recent publications marked them the enemy for me: What reputable, customer-centered company would publically say "Our goal is to have 1 billion Windows (10) installations by 2018"? It just shows me that Windows is no longer the OS "you want to fall in love with". Also, when Windows 10 was announced along with the Windows-as-a-Service plan, I really started to question my habits. I would not want to pay for an OS which spys on people and restricts both your creativity and productivity. My intention with this post is to show how easy or difficult it is to switch to Linux and what steps it involved for me so you get an idea how much work is needed. The thread can then be used for discussions. The first decision one needs to make, besides deciding to actually switch, is which distribution one's going to use (and which desktop environment but that's another thing). Since I work with SUSE Linux Exterprise in the company, I wanted to use OpenSUSE. So I downloaded a Live CD of it, wrote it on a USB drive and attempted to start it. It didn't work, it hang on a "Assuming drive cache: write through" message referencing the USB drive. To see whether it's a problem with USB, I went ahead and installed it. This time, it worked, and I was welcomed with GNOME. And while I was making my first steps in this new world.. it hung itself up. Just like that. It still did after several reboots. So I was thinking, maybe it was a driver issue because I experienced dozens of those in the past. So I downloaded Ubuntu to see if this would work, and the Live CD did. I didn't install it, though. It's popular and maybe it has the highest compatibility with different kinds of hardware (due to easy access to proprietary drivers) but I thought to myself, I don't want a distribution aimed at beginners. I also used Linux Mint on my netbook and found it too much pre-configured (but Cinnamon was cool!). So I decided to go with Debian out of a few reasons. I like how Debian puts you in control while you don't need to configure everything in detail.There's this huge software repository, of course.It's well documented and supported.I also like Debian's mindset about free software, like the DFSG (there also were some guidelines on behavior inside the community or something like it but I don't find the links anymore ).Installed, booted, same hanging. Here the DE would "crash" and show a shell with one repeated message from nouveau: "GPU lock". This is where I knew it has to be the open source driver causing this; it forced me to use the proprietary driver for now. Its installation could be done in two ways: By downloading it from nVidias homepage or from Debian's non-free repos. I chose the latter since it was easier to set up. I even found a guide for this. Anyway, the drivers fixed the only hardware problem I had with switching. Next steps included the configuration of the OS for production. Setting up Cinnamon This included spawning a few desklets and altering the taskbar. xkcd on your desktop, what could be cooler than being greeted with one of these when you log in? And of course a system monitor. Mounting the other drives I reserved a 500 GiB partition for Linux, but there's still the other half of the hard drive plus my Windows 8.1 SSD and a 2 TiB media drive, all of which I wanted to have access to from Linux. Mounting the SSD and the media drive was easy and I "hardcoded" it directly into /etc/fstab. But the other half of the hard drive caused a small error. The thing is, it still contains a working Windows installation which I kept there to allow troubleshooting the SSD in case it failed. mount told me it wouldn't mount the partition in read-write mode because Windows was allegedly not shut down completely. I don't know what the Windows 8 bootloader is doing but going through man mount I found an option to clear the hibernation cache or something which did the trick.Installing and setting up programs I needed I was using mostly open source and cross-platform software on Windows, in general software which was also available on Linux. Even migrating settings sometimes involved a simple move command (like Firefox and Thunderbird profiles). Also installed Steam and Wine. And Steam on Wine, though I use this combination in very rare occasions. I was very surprised to see almost all games I played on Windows were available as Linux builds on Steam. So much for "Linux is not ready for gaming". Also: openvpn and airvpn, both of which work much better than on Windows in terms of stability, qbittorrent, vlc, PDF editing tools, a number of others as well. Some of these apps were installed to replace already included things, for example zsh instead of bash.Overall experience Linux is a wonderful desktop OS. But it depends on many points how easy or difficult it will be for you. Sometimes the switch fails because of unsupported hardware. As you have read, the open source driver nouveau has its problems with certain nVidia graphics cards. When I searched for this on the internet I found out I am not the only one with this: nVidia don't support nouveau like they supported nv so most work on nouveau had to be done by reverse engineering their proprietary drivers which involved much work and time I imagine.Most people at my age don't switch because they use Windows for gaming, especially for playing the notorious "triple A" games which are traditionally Windows/DirectX only, using the newest tech hardware and software can offer. I can understand this point of view, even I still have Windows on my SSD which I see as a last reserve when Wine fails. There was no reason to boot Windows yet so update-wise it's like 60 days behind. But in most cases it fails because people have no experience with Linux. Most of them expect it to work like Windows. "Windows != Linux" is often cited in this case - Windows is not Linux. Linux does not aim to be like Windows, Linux also doesn't want to be a replacement for Windows. Understanding this is key if you're new to it. If you do the switch, be ready to read. Like, a lot. As for me, I had experience with Linux before. The hardware problem was a small one, multiple smaller complications arose, ensued, were overcome and I don't focus my time on gaming. My choice is clear. What about you? Planning on switching? Maybe you already use Linux? If yes, tell us which distribution and desktop you use and why. Give some tips for "potential switchers", for newbies and for pros if you like. Windows you ditch, to Linux you switch. Edit: I have stumbled upon my second self on Reddit who wrote this:
  8. Hi there! I installed the Eddie Client on my (headless) Ubuntu Server. I managed to start a VPN connection using the 'airvpn -cli' command, giving some arguments like -login -password -connect -server -port and -protocol However, the up and down speed aren't as good as I expected. As I read, increasing the buffer size could improve the speeds. In the GUI version of Eddie (which I tested on my Laptop) you can set the TCP/UDP buffer size (Preferences -> Advanced -> General). Is there a way to set these buffer sizes using the command line edition of Eddie, too? I couldn't find an appropriate command in the documentation. BTW: Is there a command to disconnect the VPN via the command line? Thank a lot & cheers
  9. Hi VPN Experts, I've been reading many hours but I'm still completely lost as to how to achieve what I want. My goal is to set up one or more Docker Containers and run all the applications that should go through the VPN from within said containers so that all the other traffic is uneffected by the VPN. That means that Eddi or OpenVPN, a torrent client etc. must go into a container. Please bear in mind that I'm a complete beginner/noob, but it is my understanding that this solution is a viable, resource light alternative to a VM or an even more complicated(?) Iptables-based split tunneling solution. A more costly way would be to buy a Raspberry Pi and set it up as a proxy server with AirVPN running on it, right? Anyway, I've installed the openvpn package and Docker on Arch Linux but I don't know how to proceed from here. Any help is greatly appreciated. Cheers
  10. Hi Anyone else having an issue connecting to the internet when Network Lock is activated on Ubuntu 16.10. Works ok without Network Lock but when activated my connection drops and I can't access any sites Does Network Lock not work on Ubuntu? Any help would be appreciated Aloha Sine
  11. If you're running AirVPN on Linux you probably don't want to have to type your sudo password in each time it runs. Why? If you're auto-starting it, you want your network lock and VPN connection to happen as soon as you login. Here's what I did for Ubuntu (Actually Kubuntu)... Install gksu (sudo apt install gksu) Add AirVPN to your autostart list and for command use gksudo /usr/bin/airvpn Run sudo nano /usr/share/applications/AirVPN.desktop and change the command to gksudo /usr/bin/airvpn Edit the AirVPN entry in your application launcher and change the command to gksudo /usr/bin/airvpn Run sudo visudo and add the line %airvpn ALL=(ALL:ALL) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/airvpn after all other rules (Press Ctrl+x and then Enter to exit and save). Run sudo groupadd airvpn Run sudo usermod -a -G airvpn user replacing "user" with your account's username. You're done. The next time you login (Or start it any any other way) AirVPN will start without entering any password. Note: Your AirVPN settings will be back to default after doing this. Don't worry, just set them again and they'll save.
  12. Hello all, I upgraded from Opensuse Leap 42.1 to Opensuse Leap 42.2 and was unable to start the client. I was prompted for my root password when attempting to start up Eddie (either via icon shortcut or terminal) but it would never start. I figured from other posts who had similar issues after Fedora upgrades that I might try the experimental version of Eddie, and it worked. My questions are: 1) Is this an issue with Opensuse or the AirVPN client or both? 2) How can this be made better to allow for a smoother experience with Eddie stable after the next version upgrade of the distro? 3) What is needed for Eddie stable to work on Leap 42.2? Thanks a lot in advance
  13. Are there any plans to integrate Eddie in the desktop on Linux? Would be nice to minimize Eddie to the system tray. Thanks in advance.

  15. I've recently purchased AirVPN and set up the client for usage with two windows devices, however I'm having issues with one of my Linux systems. In the first instance, when trying to install the client via the package installer, I received the message: Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: "libmono-system-runtime2.0-cil" ... Since I couldn't use the installer, I downloaded the mobile client instead. Everything seemed to be running smoothly, except when I ran a check on ipleak.net, I found that my UK details were displayed along with the foreign IP from the VPN. My accurate location was also shown on the Google Maps image at the bottom of the screen. This is not the case with either of my windows devices. In the windows instances, the only addresses and locations shown are those coming from the VPN. Also, the ipleaks check reads: "AirVPN Exit Node: No." With both my windows devices, this section reads: "AirVPN Exit Node: Yes." Forgive me if I sound foolish, but I really am confused as to what the issue could be. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  16. The client will loop over each potential server but never fully connect to one. I have attached my logs and tried every version and workaround I have read. Thank you airvpn_debug.txt
  17. Hey Everyone, Just learning the ropes with vpn's, got it working on my mac and my android phone, but having a bit of trouble with my arch linux laptop. I feel like I am just missing a step somewhere, but I following the instructions for the terminal setup (couldn't get the app to work, I'll play with it later). I made the config files, run 'openvpn configfile', it does its thing and I get the 'Initialization Sequence Completed'. But thats as far as I got becuase after that I have no internet. I feel like it must be a firewall issue or something isn't configured right. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks,
  18. Hello everybody! I just wanted to ask if somebody else has the same problem and maybe a solution. So my Eddies on my other machines work very well and I'm very happy with them, but my Eddie 2.11.3 in Kali Linux 2 Rolling always needs 5 minutes for "checking login" and then logs in.. and then it also always needs 5 minutes for "checking authorization", when connecting to any server. The weird thing is, that it are always EXACTLY 5 minutes for both which makes me suspect that it's a setting-issue maybe? Has anybody else experienced this? regards, me
  19. SORRY! I DIDN'T SEE THE OTHER POST ON THIS PROBLEM BEFORE I POSTED THIS. Hi. This is my first post after over a year of successfully using Airvpn on many different versions of Linux and Windows without incident. Today I tried to install the Linux version of Eddie on two new KDE distributions, Mint and Netrunner. Both gave me a message that they "cannot satisfy dependencies." Have installed before on many different distributions, including KDE, with no problems. Am I missing something in the forums? Do I need to do something differently with new versions of KDE? I'm not a Linux expert, by the way, I just like to use it for certain activities. Thank you for a great product! Pete
  20. Hi guys, I've subscribed to the Airvpn service about 4 months ago and I'm very happy with it. Nevertheless, as a Linux user (currently Lubuntu 16.04) which isn't using the client option, it was becoming somewhat annoying to turn on and turn off the openvpn and the stunnel in different terminals every time. Few days ago I sat and wrote a small CLI script in python, that is automating the process of connecting and disconnecting to the Airvpn service. The script can be found here: https://github.com/hemulin/airvpn_toggler Simply put, what it does is: When turning on - 1) Scanning the configs files folder and asking you from which country you wish to exit 2) After you choose a country, it turns on the stunnel as a background process and waiting for it to finish the initialization 3) After the stunnel init has finished, it turns on the openvpn as a background process and waiting for it to finish init. 4) After the openvpn has finished its init, the script validates that the external IP has changed and if yes, adding a system tray indicator to show it is connected. When turning off - 1) Killing the system tray indicator, the openvpn and the stunnel processes. 2) Validating that the external IP has changed. Currently it is working well for me, but I still consider it to be a "work in progress", so (1) I still improves it and (2) Feel free to ask for features (and of course, forks and pull requests are welcome). Cheers, Hemulin
  21. So, I'm running a distro of Linux called GalliumOS. It's made from the ground up to work better with Chromebooks (I'm using an Acer CB3-131 Chromebook) than other distros, but it's based on Xubuntu. It should, in theory, work fine with the Linux version of AirVPN. I wasn't able to get the .deb version of the installer working, but the official non-mono portable version launched just fine. However, when I tried to log in, I got a "Cannot login. (Bad PKCS7 padding. Invalid length 0.)" error message. I have NO idea what this could be about, and I'm looking for any help I can get. I'd like to add that I'm new to Linux in general, so this may have something to do with my difficulty in resolving this issue. Anyway, thanks for any help. It's appreciated.
  22. first off thanks for your time for trying to help with this issue. long story short I use debian linux to conntect through open vpn I go and disable IPv6, I try to connect to the vpn via command line. But when I do this I cant do anything on the web, or use ping or nothing. when i connect using the terminal i due the ifconfig and see the tunnel is active. it only when i quit the connecting is when everything return to normal ( web, ping, ect). any ideals on this one cause i been trying to figure this one out for couple of days and i cant find the answer.
  23. Hi all, First-time poster with a real head-scratcher (to me, probably obvious to others). I'm trying to set up a server on Google Compute Engine with AirVPN. I created a Ubuntu 16 VM from scratch, installed OpenVPN, generated a config and ran sudo openvpn config.ovpn (I renamed the config file). By all appearances this works fine. I lose my connection (as expected) and can reconnect via the Persei external IP through a forwarded port to 22 over SSH. Great, right? However I can't ping anything, can't connect to any repos via apt-get, can't do anything on the internet at all really. After some investigation I find that I can ping IPs, but can't ping any domain names or use nslookup. Ok, DNS is messed up, but no idea why... In trying to fix this, I realize I also can't use sudo for anything. Just using sudo nano /etc/rc.local to alter a file, for example, results in the terminal doing nothing (cursor goes to new line, but no output). I can Ctrl-C to escape though. Note: This weird sudo issue didn't happen when I tried this same process on Debian Jesse, however the DNS problem did. I also tried using the AirVPN-provided openvpn binary, but all the same problems occurred. So I'm stuck. I've built servers before (on Digital Ocean) with ubuntu and didn't run into this weird DNS/Sudo problem. Here's my config sans certs, but I didn't change a single line from what AirVPN generated. client dev tun proto udp remote 443 resolv-retry infinite nobind persist-key persist-tun remote-cert-tls server cipher AES-256-CBC comp-lzo no route-delay 5 verb 3 explicit-exit-notify 5 Any help this community can provide would be much appreciated!
  24. A maybe quick and probably elementary question: In a Linux Mint Virtualbox installation running Eddie with Network Lock active, do I need to/should I have any additional firewall going?
