  1. I am trying to configure AirVPN port forwarding features. However after the initial configuration of openvpn client for AirVPN it doesn't seem to be pulling an IP address. The only thing that I wasn't able to do during the setup was select " Client Certificate = [ AirVPN_CERT]" The only option was either none (user/password) or webConfigurator. Any suggestions?
  2. Hi, I running different Linux distributions (Arch, Manjaro & Debian) and since the AirVPN client isn't native linux software (and already caused some problems on my Debian workstation) I'm using OpenVPN directly. Although one might argue that AirVPN has developed its client for some reason, I'm not a fan of using non-native software on Linux plus this is some additional/potential source for bugs / security issues. OpenVPN is commonly used and tested, offers a neat command line interface, thus I think its a pretty nice way to use OpenVPN directly for AirVPN connections. However, I more or less new to VPN setups and I cannot figure out what is wrong with my setup. Here's the problem: When I visit ipleak.net (or any other website that detects DNS leaks) I always see my ISP's original DNS ip address, but I want my conncetion to use AirVPN's DNS in order to hide my visited websites. I am using Firefox (but I've also tested it with Chrome/Chromium) and disabled the WebRTC stuff. I even tried the Firefox WebRTC-Blocker AddOn. Nothing helped Am I doing something wrong with the OpenVPN configurator from AirVPN? I am pretty much just selecting the Countires, UDP/TCP and using the generated config file with OpenVPN. I mean there is no "hidden" only use AirVPN DNS-option, right? Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks!
  3. I'm trying to use the portable version (no mono) of the client on Linux Mint. When I try to connect to a server I get an error "OpenVPN is already running". I don't think I have anything running in background that would cause this message to appear. I have one more VPN client installed on my machine from other provider but I have to manually start it. I checked on System Monitor for processes with "vpn" in name and I didn't find anything. Do you know what may cause this and how to solve the issue?
  4. Hello - using openvpn by importing vpn config files the normal way (not bundling executables). This works on Ubuntu 16.04 and Manjao 16.06 linux so far: I find it only works if I TICK on use LZO Compression (which by default is unticked). It does not work if unticked 1. May i ask why this is the case ? 2. Will this affect my anonimity or connection in any detrimental way ? 3. Will someone be able to update the guide on the How to for linux to update this ?
  5. Hi All, I have a Debian Apache Server running on a machine under my home network. I have a opnevpn client and a AirVPN host running especially for the server. But all the incoming connections over ports 80 (http) and 443 (https) are not accessible now from the publicly assigned IP address by AirVPN. I have tried port forwarding some arbitary port >2048 to internal port 443 using Remote Port Forwarding and it works fine. But now I wanted to have a SSL certificate provided by https://letsencrypt.org/ but their client only checks and updates the certificates over SSL port 443 and that is true for all the SSL certificate providers. Is there any I can get the requests go through the VPN?
  6. I am not an expert with networking issues therefore the question. If I am using AirVPN service with my ASUS 88U router w/latest Merlin firmware build, can I use the same UDP or TCP 443 .ovpn file (same server location) for Client1 (AppleTV4) and Client2 (PC) using Policy Rules without having Ip routing issues? If I cannot have each client using same UDP 443 file or TCP file can I use UDP/TCP 443 file but with a different server for each? I read somewhere you can't Port Forward two seperate devices to same port. I know I am not using the port forward feature to use OpenVPN in router but just asking since I am confused on the matter. Also, I noticed when I have Client1 using UDP 443 (Dallas) .ovpn and Client2 using UDP 443 (Miami) .ovpn and run a speed test (Ookla) on the CLient2, the IP address that Ookla reports is the Client1 UDP 443 (Dallas) instead of the UDP 443 (miami) IP (the correct IP it should be reporting). How to fix this issue? Thanks.
  7. Hi, After a lot of testing, searching, and experimenting with settings in the Windows 10 client, I've not been able to solve a DNS leak in the Windows 10 client. I have, however, been able to stop the leak by using a newer version of OpenVPN. The Windows AirVPN client currently uses OpenVPN version 2.3.8, a version which does not support the "block-outside-dns" option, which would solve the DNS leak. Version 2.3.9 supports this option, and the current version is 2.3.10, so upgrading the OpenVPN version in the Windows client would solve the leak. More here: https://www.dnsleaktest.com/how-to-fix-a-dns-leak.html I've tested the option in the most recent version of OpenVPN(Without the AIrVPN client) and the leak is fixed. The latest version is available here: https://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/downloads.html Another issue with the client is that when you try to specify a custom path to OpenVPN, it doesn't work and uses the built-in version with the client. So this is a request to upgrade OpenVPN in the client and enable the "block-outside-dns" option too. Fixing the custom path would be great as well. I think this would help us all because privacy is a very important part of VPNs. Thanks, Henleys
  8. ​ There is a new final version off OpenVPN ​ will it be integrated soon? ​ ​
  9. I am struggling to successfully edit the openvpn config file generated in the client area to successfully use the script here: http://brianhornsby.com/blog/how-to-setup-your-vpn-client In the guide it suggests editing the file to point to a password but AirVPN seems to use a key instead. Any help would be appreciated.
  10. Hi, I installed the Eddie client from the .deb package, but when I try to connect I get the error Driver Installation Failed The logs show an error when I installed the client which says: OpenVPN Driver - Not available however, `open-vpn` and `bridge-utils` are installed. Any suggestions to get it working?
  11. Hello, i am not aware if anyone else experiences this issue, but when i lock my phone when i am not using it, and wake it up again some minutes later, even with full network access my client fails to re connect to the tunnel. Below i have attached my log file and the view i get from the app after unlocking my device. Any help the user base could provide would be much appreciated. I also have a support ticket regarding the matter but they seem to be clueless as to the cause. OpenVPN Log File.txt
  12. I want to configure linux to use open vpn , I have to download the user cert ca cert private key and for the user name and pass I guess I use the one I use to login to my airvpn acct Help please , I want to use this now! thank you
  13. Asus RT-N16: DD-WRTBroadcom BCM4716 chip rev 1Clock = 500 MHz (slightly up from factory 480) My bottleneck is at the router while utilizing the DD-WRT OpenVPN Client function. I get a 40% decrease in bandwidth as apposed to using VPN straight from the computer. This is due to limintations of the onboard processor. I use the router because I have just the one VPN account so I have all the computers in the network going through it. I tested the bandwidth with just a single computer connected to assure that it wasn't a network sharing issue. Now I believe my options are: Overclock the hell out of the router. Running some kind of local OpenVPN Server. Purchase a better router. Purchase additional separate monthly VPN accounts I would like to go with 2 because its the cheapest and less risky. Also because I am already running a local tower as SFTP file server and Ubuntu+Debian package archive mirror. Now my knowledge of OpenVPN is limited as is my knowledge of DD-wrt routing functions. Ideally I would like to prevent any and all PlainText traffic. So I think my setup would look roughly like this. Current Configuration: [Computers & Devices] --P--> [Router] --E--> [iSP] --E--> [VPN Provider] --P--> [internet] Proposed Configuration: [Computers & Devices] --P--> [Router] --P--> [Local OpenVPN Server] --E--> [Router] --E--> [iSP] --E--> [VPN Provider] --P--> [internet] P = PlainText E = Encrypted VPN Tunnel
  14. Will it ever be possible for us to hide our connections to AirVPN on our mobile devices using OpenVPN over SSL and SSH in the future via Eddie or some other mobile solution?
  15. I had problems with my ISP:s DNS servers showing up on DNS leak tests. It seems that this is a Windows 10 related problem and is fixed in OpenVPN 2.3.9 when using the --block-outside-dns configuration option. I managed to fix leaks by switching to OpenVPN-GUI-client and adding block-outside-dns to the AirVPN configuration file. It might also be possible to use the plugin in Eddie's OpenVPN-version. I haven't tested this because I'm happy with the OpenVPN-GUI for now. The plugin can be found from here: https://github.com/ValdikSS/openvpn-fix-dns-leak-plugin Hopefully this is helpful for someone.
  16. It is possible to configure airvpn from the settings app on ios instead of using the openvpn app? Thanks
  17. I have a vmware virtual machine and I want all network traffic to go via openvpn/airvpn. One solution would be to copy the .ovpn file to the guest VM and use it there. The problem is this approach is subject to human errors, OS failures and vulnerable to attacks. So by doing this routing on the host OS it would allow to have a disposable "internet" guest Vm which you can use without having to worry about your security or identity to be compromised. Well for a full protection you would need Tor as well. That's not what I need. But if you know how anyway then feel free to chime in. Both my host and my guest are Linux machines. Note that I have more than one VM and I only want traffic to be routed for this specific VM. I would also like to know on which network modes this can be done. I mean if the VM is in NAT can this work? And what about bridged? Host only? What are the advantages or disadvantages of each guest VM network mode in order to solve this problem? Thank you!
  18. When I connect my VPN to america.vpn.airdns.org UDP port 443 and I enable infinitely resolve, I will connect to a 'random' server in that pool, right? I suppose 'random' being one of the servers with low load, load latency, so you can evenly distribute the incoming VPN's for your customers. Question 1: When I enable 'Infinitely resolve server' in the OpenVPN connection setup, does that automatically fail me over to another server when latencies are getting high or the server gets too high on load, or will that only fail me over to another server when the server I'm connected to goes down? Here's why I am asking. I initially setup 3 VPN connections each toa different port, in a load balanced group on PfSense, each directly to an IP address to one of your servers. I did it so that PfSense would fail over when latencies are getting too high, when there's ping loss or (obviously) when a VPN goes down. This worked, and when one server would see high latencies, I'd get an email stating PfSense was omitting it from the routing group. However, on several occasions for the past two days, all servers I was connected to were seeing high latencies but because I was connected directly to a AirVPN server IP I had nowhere else to fail over to. And that is a problem. So I recreated my VPN tunnels to connect to a region's DNS name, again each on a different UDP port. I am hoping it works as I described in the second alinea (fail over on high latencies with infinitely resolve server'). But what I'm seeing is that all three connections are now going to the same server. If that server goes down and my connection needs to failover, all my VPN tunnels will now go down at the same time, and connect to another server. But they would probably all connect to the same new server again, and I'm back to square one. This is also a problem. Here's what I would like: When I setup 3 simultaneous connections on a DNS name to a region from the same IP address, I would want each one to connect to a different server. Especially since I'm connecting to three different ports, this should be easy to to do right? Is this possible at all? Can I somehow force this from my end? If this is currently NOT possible, would you consider this as a feature request? Many thanks for your time!
  19. Hi guys, I have a trouble with my AirVpn tunnel. I used the config generator in order to have a .ovpn with the following: - European servers, - UDP on 443 I used the generated configuration with OpenVPN for Android. From my home ADSL (Italy, Infostrada, PPPoA), when I try to use the torrent client (tTorrent) I have the following error: read UDPv4 [EHOSTUNREACH]: No route to host (code=113) The download performance results no goods (but I cannot exclude others problems). Can anyone help me to address the EHOSTUNREACH error? thanks a lot, luigi
  20. Hello, since a few days I get weird disconnections when I'm going via a SSL Tunnel. Why's that and am I compromised after this disconnection? Thanks in advance for your help!
  21. Hello everyone! When I requested a three-day trial of AirVPN's service in September 2013 I was testing a number of VPN clients (e.g. the Air client (which was the very bad condition client, not Eddie), OpenVPN GUI, Viscosity). I too searched the internet for methods to stop torrent programs from working - or at least to block their traffic - when the connection to a VPN breaks. There were some open source programs from SourceForge I tried out and some "commercial" programs I downloaded from TPB to test them out. Most of them simply terminate the processes of torrent clients and relaunch them when a VPN connection is reestablished. I used Viscosity first. Cool client, no problems, stable. But it costs $10. I was just about to purchase it because I didn't find anything better when I used DuckDuckGo again and found an even cooler client: SecurePoint SSL VPN SecurePoint is a german IT security company based in Lüneburg. It's therefore made in Germany. I don't know any user numbers, I just know that it's open source and somehow unknown to many of those using VPN services. In the pictures german localization is used. Don't panic! When you download and install the client, you can choose english as well. When you open the client, a small overview of your connections will be shown with one-click abilities to start your preconfigured profiles. To import a .ovpn file, click on the gear in the bottom right corner > Import. Select your .crypt or .ovpn file, set a profile name in Import as (filename or a name of your choice) and click import. Basically, you can now click on the left square of your new configuration and start the connection. That's it! Thank you for reading.. There are also the client settings which let you enable startup with Windows, add/delete TAP adapters, configure proxy and more. The contect menu of every connection will look like this. Quick Edit and Settings will open the configuration of your selected profile. If you need a GUI for changing the configuration, use Settings. Quick Edit will provide a small editor window in which you can manually edit the .ovpn file. Doing changes here will of course update the GUI version as well. The GUI settings will start with an option to autostart the selected profile after client launch and the abilities to rename the profile and delete stored authentication data (usernames/passwords). The Advanced button opens up the advanced settings (who knew?). As I wrote earlier, this is the GUI for configuring the .ovpn file, any change here will be written into the file itself. If you don't know what these do, I recommend to not touch any settings in General and OS tabs unless you are told to do so by someone here on the forums. Just take a look at the Scripts tab. The client will execute any file or command you enter here before/after connection and disconnection and when errors occur. As it was pointed out in this thread, this is a built-in feature of OpenVPN and therefore guaranteed to work (I mean, they will trigger; it's up to you if the command/file can actually be executed successfully, try it out first!). In client version 2 the Remote tab was introduced. It allows you to quickly enter more IPs you want the client to connect to. In the Advanced tab selecting Random host will cause the client to connect randomly to one of the IPs in the Remote list (and will, of course, update the .ovpn file accordingly). SecurePoint SSL-VPN is open source and can be found on GitHub. v2.0.15 uses OpenVPN v2.3.7 but all the binaries can be manually updated by just replacing them in the client's directory. You can download the client from SourceForge. In the past it was able to also freely download it from SecurePoint's servers, however, now a registration as a reseller is required. [h3]How to manually update used OpenVPN/SSL/LZO versions Download the newest installer for Windows, create a new directory on your desktop and let the installer copy the files into it. In the component selection of the installation, select OpenVPN User-Space Components only. Then you just copy openvpn.exe and all DLL files you see into the bin directory of Securepoint. Make sure to diconnect first since openvpn.exe is used. Then just reconnect and you will see that Securepoint uses new versions of OpenVPN and libraries. Thank you for reading!
  22. I upgraded my router to the latest nightly (see title), I'm coming from Chaos Chalmer. I upgraded because I was having some other (non-vpn) related issues with CC builds. I've configured my router with OpenVPN. I generated a config for routers, separate certs, resolve ticked. Copied to my router and renamed the AirVPN...ovpn to airvpn.ovpn. The problem is, it takes AAAGES for something to load. It does eventually load, though. DNS resolving is quick, I can use dig or nslookup and response is instant. When I telnet to a websites IP address on port 80 it just takes minutes and finally connects. Browser sometimes simply stops loading because it's taking too long. Not sure what's going on, can anyone help?

  25. Dear support, I want to connect to AirVPN-Servers via SOCKS5 Server which supports UDP packets. So I added the line socks-proxy sockshost 1080 login.txt basic to my AirVPN-OpenVPN configuration file. Connection to SOCKS was successful, but not to your OpenVPN server: Wed Dec 16 10:44:55 2015 us=732339 UDPv4 link local: [undef] Wed Dec 16 10:44:55 2015 us=732453 UDPv4 link remote: [AF_INET] WWWWW Do you block incoming SOCKS connections (perhaps from common SOCKS ports?) to your OpenVPN-Servers?
