  1. Hello all, I recently activate the network lock option on the AirVPN client (2 months ago), but unfortunately since i activate this option the Windows Update Center can't load and install anymore new update of windows. Furthermore, if I shut down the Airvpn client I can't connect on network, even if deactivate network lock, shutdown windows firewall and antivirus. I uninstall the Arivpn client, no effect. I used the windows recovery mode and choose a date before activation of the network lock option...same, no effect. All is runing like the network lock frozed my windows firewall in "no exchange mode", even in deactivate the firewall. So I'm here to find some help, because I absolutely don't know how to resolve this problem and now my windows os is out of date. Thanks for your help. PS: operating system -> Windows Vista Home premium 64 bits SP2 Airvpn clent: 2.10.3
  2. Hello, I am newish here, and am not too technical. Running Eddie on OS X 10.11.6 with Network Lock on. Was running great, then, yesterday, noticed that connection had been lost, and tried to reconnect, but,continually got stuck on the "Checking Routes". Had to quit and re-start Eddie to get reconnected. I'd prefer to run with Network lock on, but can not stay connected with the Network Lock on. Obviously, while I quit and restart, I'm not running VPN... I have no idea what to do to help with this issue. I know this may be too vague, but, I'm simply not too technical to know where to begin. I apologize if this is already covered. I've tried looking through the forums, but, can't find this, or understand how to run with OS X so it will reconnect when the connection is lost while running the Network Lock on. Is there any way to start Network lock if it is off and Eddie is already running without having to restart? Thank you
  3. Hello I have a question about the OSX Power Nap feature. Does the network lock work when Power Nap is enabled in osx? Or does the IP leak during a Power Nap?
  4. 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?
  5. When setting up OpenVPN on a linux openvpn client to use AirVPN, I use the config generator to get the openvpn config, but it does not provide me with the firewall rules that I need. In order to prevent leaks, I also set up iptables on my server by: 1. running the eddie client on a linux desktop system; and, 2. using command line tools to export the iptables config. Good instructions for porting rules between systems by taking advantage of the command "sudo iptables-save" can be found HERE: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-migrate-iptables-firewall-rules-to-a-new-server It would be a welcome addition to the configuration generator if saved rules could be bundled with the openvpn.conf file by the generator allowing for user selection of interfaces via the generator web form.
  6. Thank you in advance for assistance. Try as we may we are unable to access our local network with 'Network Lock' activated. We have tried countless suggestions gleaned from forum posts and elsewhere that simply have not worked. Our network a very simple home system and our goal to be able to access a Ready NAS attached to the network. We are running Eddie 2.10.3 with network lock set to OS X - PF on Mavericks 10.9.5. ifconfig posted below for reference in case the 'Addresses Allowed' protocol we are using is incorrect although we have tried every conceivable permutation to no avail.

  7. Hi guys, ​ ​Just want to firstly say thank you for the services you provide. I just have a few questions that I would like some discussion on if possible. My setup for using Tor through Airvpn's client is a s follows, my OS is Ubuntu, Mate, Mint or Windows as the base OS which I use to connect the VPN. I then use VMware or virtual box, mostly virtual box due to it not being proprietary to launch a fully contained Tails instance from an .ISO file without persistence, which I then use to connect to Tor. In the Eddie client I have Network lock active at all times, I remove the default gateway and even block ping and the private network access. I have however noticed that if you use DHCP, the default route is reconfigured after a few minutes even though network lock has removed it. I switched to static addressing and this issue hasn’t come up since. I am not sure if you are aware of this. I use this setup because Tor and Eddie's network lock feature isn’t compatible as yet and I do not like the idea of using the VPN without it. I would just like to know any views on this setup and any suggestions on improving security even further. ​ ​I also stumbled on this new feature in Firefox network.dns.blockdotonion, a new preference setting introduced in Firefox 45.0. Any thoughts on this? Why would they want to block .onion dns queries or dns results?
  8. Hello everybody, i suscribed few days ago to airvpn and i'm looking for a solution to make an "ip binding" system to prevent connection to internet when the VPN is offline. The point is that i read a lot of informations about the network locker and windows firewall, but i only have Gdata firewall (i don't know if it's good to launch two firewalls at the same time...) I don't really have a brillant computering knowledge si i'm kind of lost with all theses procedures. can you help me with this ? I specially want ipbinding when i'm using utorrent, to avoid data sharing when my public IP can me seen by everybody.. thank you a lot
  9. Hello, for reasons that i cannot identify my Network Lock is not working. When i disengage the VPN or the connection drops all of my applications are able to get through unfettered. I have attached my log to see if it can provide any help to you. I will also be submitting a support ticket. My Network and Sharing settings are the standard automatic for my wireless adapter and my Firewall was reset once when i could not connect without the VPN, so i am curious as to how i can fix this.

  11. Hi all, I've just started using eddie (windows) and I use Vuze as my bittorrent client. I have a binding to the interface responsible for TAP-Windows Adapter V9 for added security. Two issues arise when Network Lock is active: 1) TCP port test fails with "Testing port 36391 ... Unable to test: Invalid port given, or test service failed. Another application may already be using this port.. (Error: Unexpected end of file from server). 2) All torrents from private trackers error out with the tracker status of "Error (Permission denied: connect) Even the ubuntu torrent falls back to DHT backup only. The only torrents that give an "OK" are public ones from places like kat When Network Lock is not engaged (but binding is still in place) both problems go away. In fact, even the UDP port test passes more quickly. Any advice would be greatly welcomed. Thank you D P.S. I don't know if this makes a difference, but for completeness' sake, I am connected to Rana.
  12. Hello. I recently purchased subscription to AirVPN services, and thanks to the documentation and the forum, I’ve managed to get the Eddie client (version 2.10.3) running quite well on my Windows 8.1 x64 laptop. My only problem is with the Network Lock function. I always use Network Lock. My one and only firewall is the embedded Windows Firewall. But it appears that Network Lock replace my firewall rules, even if they’re saved and ready to be set back if the Network Lock function is stopped. It is said that this replacement is done « beyond the scene », so that the rules don't seem changed when they actually are. So what if I have firewall rules that I need/want to keep active everytime I connect to the internet ? Could it be possible to merge the Network Lock firewall rules with my own firewall rules ? Great hope that there is a solution.
  13. 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? ​
  14. 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?
  15. 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
  16. Hi, Is it possible to use ForceBindIP and Network Lock simultaneously, or is that just defeating the whole point of Network Lock?! When I use both of them together, I cannot access the internet at all if I open the browser using ForceBindIP. Cheers..
  17. 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
  18. Here I am with a technical problem with the setup "AIR VPN over TOR". This is working absolutely fine, I have installed TOR, opened TOR browser, then connected to AIR VPN client - right now my Entry IP is from TOR, and Exit IP is from AIR VPN server - this is exactly what I wanted and achieved, so no problem here. However, when the VPN connection gone down suddenly and it was trying to reconnect, my firefox browser showing IP from my local ISP, it means I am exposed already! I tried "Network lock", but it's not working with "VPN over TOR" setup. I then checked the guide page here https://airvpn.org/tor/ and found this "Warning: not compatible with Network Lock at the moment." Therefore, this setup currently is not full proof and giving a false sense of security. VPN disconnection is very common, and in that case, it will expose my true-identity any time without any notice. This only thing making all this setup absolutely vulnerable, yet you recommended this. In the guide you said, by this setup, my true IP won't be revealed even to you, but you forgot that if VPN gets disconnected, my true ip will be revealed to all other site/software which is consistently using data. Tell me what to do to make it full proof totally Waiting for your prompt reply, thanks.
  19. While network lock is on and AirVPN setting are loaded into windows firewall the firewall is blocking port 3100. I can create an outbound rule to allow through but the rule, of course, is lost after deactivating network lock. I get this - 'An attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions' Anybody?? I can't use AirVPN (Eddie) with the network lock active....
  20. Basically, after I enable network lock several programs ask for permission to go through my firewall (bittorrent sync, plex, qbittorrent) and I don't know what I should do. Will letting them through cause my IP to leak if AirVPN goes down?
  21. L.S, I have just started using AirVPN, and am not sure I completely understand how the network lock works. I think it is supposed to block the internet connection whenever AirVPN is disconnected. What I am not sure of is whether the internet connection will also be blocked after the AirVPN app is closed. Additionally, I am not sure what option to choose in the AirVPN menu: setting it to 'Automatic' does not seems to do anything, while setting it to 'OS X - PF' does seem to do what I expect it to do. I am on an iMac OSX 10.11.2 using the AirVPN app 2.10.3. Wil Dieteren
  22. Oh boy, not sure what I did. So recently I switched from PIA (Private Internet Access) to AirVPN because I needed the ability to access my PLEX server remotely when my VPN was enabled. I was able to set this up correctly however for some reason, I am unable to access my media library now. My files are sitting on a synology NAS connected to my network. Are there any other settings I need to do so that when I access PLEX and AirVPN is enabled, it will be able to browse my network storage? Also, I enabled network lock after reading what it is used for. Soon after, I ran into some issues so I disabled it to perform some debugging. Unfortunately, even though it is disabled, when I close AirVPN, I am unable to access the internet from my server. As soon as I turn on AirVPN, my connection restores. I tried to restart to flush the setting but no luck. I bit off more than I can chew apparently. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I attached some screenshots I thought would be helpful. If there are any other details needed, please let me know. Thank you in advance!
  23. Hello, this is a note to the Air staff, and to the Administrators of this service. I've moved to your network from another very popular VPN provider. Your client looks quite promising, however there are a couple things I need to know, and I will list them below. It's worth noting the following: • I'm running Windows 7 x64 on a fully encrypted machine, with a 100Mbps direct PPPoE connection, no router. • I use Bit Defender Internet Security 2016 which comes with all the bells and whistles. • I am adequately protected against WebRTC leaks. I have tried various servers to test the reliability of the connection, and of the client in general. A few things to note plus a couple of questions about Eddie and the reliability of your service: DNS Leaks: Upon checking the connection using your website IPLeak.NET, I have consistently experienced DNS leaks discovering my ISP, on servers from multiple countries except for Sweden, Switzerland and Latvia, which were consistently reliable with no leaks. The hardware didn't change and no settings were changed in the operating system or on the ISP's PPPoE connection in between server switching. All applications that would use the internet were closed before disconnecting and re-launched upon switching to a new server. What would be the explanation for consistently experiencing DNS leaks on so many of your servers? Network Lock: A tour of your client Eddie, revealed that Network Lock relies heavily on Windows Firewall. Considering I'm probably not the only one using a fully featured internet security suite (Bit Defender Internet Security 2016), which has its own firewall, Windows Firewall is therefore inactive (deactivated by Bit Defender to prevent conflicts). How does your client handle the situation where one of your customers is using an Internet Security suite, and as such, Windows Firewall being inactive in the context? Are there specific settings and/or Firewall rules that I can create and use with Bit Defender's Firewall to tailor it around Eddie's Network Lock, and seal the gaps, as Windows Firewall would do, or is Eddie's Network Lock limited to Windows Firewall only? Would enabling Network Lock which in turn enables Windows Firewall, conflict with the second Firewall, thus compromising Firewall integrity? There's a mode in the Network Lock section of the client called "Automatic" but it's not clear how Automatic is defined in the context. Does this mean that it works with the Internet Security suite Firewall or something else? What does the Automatic mode do specifically? Tor Exit Node: On some of the servers (predominantly Netherlands), the Tor Exit Node indicator is lit green when checking with your service at IPLeak.NET. On other servers it isn't. What are the mechanics behind this?
  24. Hi New to AirVPN. I have set Network Lock mode to Auto but the main screen shows that Network Lock is disabled. I have set Eddie (2.10.3) to run Network Lock at start up but I get the following message "There is no available or enabled Network Lock mode" I am on XP and running the default Windows firewall. Appreciate your help
  25. Hi, I have just finished a review for AirVPN and have also run some speedtests on some of the servers. The article isn't meant for advanced users, but mainly for people looking for a decent VPN to start using. I have also tried to give some advice where I can If you think that there is something that I have missed, or have incorrectly described I would be more than happy to make some edits as it is important that any potential users get the best advice. http://www.techfleece.com/2015/12/03/airvpn-review-plus-speedtests/ Regards, Richard
