  1. Hi, I am using open vpn on a dd-wrt router. The non vpn connection is 100mbit and I get 70 to 80mbit without issue. With AirVPN I am getting 15mbit down and 5mbit up. Is this normal? I am sure a while ago I was getting 10mbit down. Thanks.
  2. Hello forum! I've used OpenVPN on Asus RT-N18U running DD-WRT over a year now. I made files up.sh to start and dn.sh to stop OpenVPN to get rid of GUI and later on to run them via ssh from lan. OpenVPN version got updated to 2.4 and I made the necessary changes to conf file and scripts. It ran without issues couple of months. However, last Thursday my VPN connection went down while I was just browsing the interwebs. OpenVPN log was filled with messages: Recursive routing detected, drop tun packet to [AF_INET] There's no difference if I set up OpenVPN via GUI or use only my scripts. I've tried both UDP and TCP protocols but the issue persists. Outcome is always the same. Since then I've contacted AirVPN support as I cannot fix this by myself. I don't have the skills for that and I've tried my everything. As you may notice I feel desperate. EDIT: Here was a zip-file including kernel and ip routing tables, scripts, openvpn.conf file and OpenVPN log. I've censored my IP-address and tun1 IP from the files. All I found out is that the router for some reason removes line via 84.xx.xx.xx dev vlan2 from routing table. You can see the difference between before-error_ip-route.txt. and after-error_ip-route.txt. DD-WRT seems to think that the fastest route outside is only via tun1 as VPN endpoint IP is in the same location as tun1 IP-address. Just a guess, might be totally wrong. Then it removes the previously mentioned routing rule and creates a loop. If I use allow-recursive-routing option in OpenVPN configuration, after a while log begins to spam "UDP messages too big" or something like that. I hadn't done any changes to DD-WRT settings, configuration files or script files. Recursive routing just popped up from no where. Router is being used as a gateway and WiFi AP only. All I've done is I moved to a new apartment which has different IP-address provided by the same ISP. That might not affect anything, just FYI. I really hope someone could help me with this. Thanks. Update: Turns out my ISP assings new IP-address every 20 minutes and almost every service on DD-WRT restarts which makes everything kind of frustrating to config...
  3. Hi, I have written an alternative client for AirVPN that I would like to share with you. Just as Eddie, it supports other providers, too, as long as OpenVPN config files are provided. For AirVPN and Mullvad it offers a convenient update function that just requires you to enter your credentials in order to download the latest server configurations. Furthermore, it allows you to choose among the plethora of protocols offered by AirVPN (including OpenVPN over SSL/SSH) except the experimental ones (I might add support for those in the future, once they become available for all servers). Qomui (Qt OpenVPN management UI) as I have named it, is written in Python and PyQt and should run on any GNU/Linux distribution. It allows you to easily create double-hop connections. In other words, you can route your requests via two OpenVPN servers. This feature works provider-independent. For example, you could choose a Mullvad server for the first hop, and AirVPN for the second (I have successfully tested this with AirVPN, Mullvad and ProtonVPN). Thereby, it avoids a major downside of similar offers by some providers, namely the fact that if one provider controls all "hops" he or she could potentially still see, log or inspect all your traffic. In the latter case, you would gain little in terms of privacy. With the ability to "mix" providers, Qomui does not suffer from the same problem and hence offers some tangible benefits. Obviously, you would still have to sacrifice some speed/bandwith, though. Depending on your DE (looking at you, Gnome!), Qomui will also display a systray icon that shows the country of the server you are currently connected to. Additional features include protection against DNS leaks and a firewall that optionally blocks all outgoing network connections except for the OpenVPN server you have chosen. Since it is never recommended to run graphical applications as root, which is a major flaw of most OpenVPN clients, all commands that require root privileges are handled by a background service that can be controlled via systemd. The following screenshot gives you an idea of what Qomui looks like (on Arch/Arc Dark Theme). If you are interested, you can download Qomui from github: https://github.com/corrad1nho/qomui Of course, I'd be happy for any kind of feedback. If you find bugs or Qomui does not run properly or not at all on your machine, please let me know. I'm happy to help! At last, a big thank you to AirVPN and its amazing community. The fact that you rely more on explaining technical details than empty promises, has helped me to learn a lot. It is also one of the main reason why I chose AirVPN. Commendably, Eddie is also released as open-source software. Only Mullvad does that, too, to my knowledge. Why doesn't every provider do that? You are selling a service, not software! Why would I trust in proprietary software? Funnily, I have never really used Eddie, though, since I was accustomed to manually adding config files to NetworkManager as my first provider did not offer a GNU/Linux client. My interest in features such as OpenVPN over SSL made me look into more convenient solutions, though. Ultimately I decided to write my own program as I wanted to learn some Python and this provided a perfect practical challenge. I have actually used Qomui daily on multiple machines during the past few months and constantly tried to improve it. So I'd thought it'd be about to time to share it (it's an alpha release, though). Have a nice weekend! Corrado

    Ipleak showing 3 DNS adresses

    When using VPN on Linux with openvpn I get 3 DNS adresses on ipleak.net. 1. AirVpn-Server Exit Ipv4, 2. AirVpn-Server Exit Ipv6 and 3. the residential address of my ISP. Note: This is not my own home IP, but rather the one by my ISP. Should I be worried? Ipv6 is disabled.
  5. 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.
  6. Eddie IS without a doubt leaking lastpass connections to the web through the vpn. Eddie is still using the 2.4.3 client; though seeing eddie is a big program it could be some other function of Eddie. Using OpenVPN 2.4.5 solves this leakage. So, OpenVPN 2.4.5 it is. Here is a screenshot of the leak inside Wireshark. https://ibb.co/jgdQqH https://image.ibb.co/gzbBVH/Leaks_using_Eddie.png
  7. I apologize in advance for such a (I hope) simple problem. I'm trying to start Airvpn on Lunix using config file and the terminal per the instructions in the "how to." It runs, then the last line on the terminal is "Initialization sequence completed." It hangs there with internet dead, and never does anything else. If I ctl. C, it continues and terminates whatever it was doing. I've tried this on several systems with the same result. My question is, is there something else I have to do? OpenVPN is installed, is there anything else that has to be there? I'm doing this because there seems to be no other way to start Airvpn on KaOS. Below is the terminal printout. I know this shows that I only gave it less then a minute, but prior attempts on several systems showed that it would never do anything.

  8. Apparently it is as easy as adding the following to the client/server OPVN files: http://my.host.net.nz/2014/04/12/adding-perfect-forward-secrecy-to-openvpn/ Create a common private key, eg openvpn --genkey --secret /path/to/store/pfs.key Securely distribute this key to each OpenVPN client, then add the following to the server tls-servertls-auth /path/to/store/pfs.key 0 and this to each client tls-clienttls-auth /path/to/store/pfs.key 1 Without this, using OpenVPN standalone will lack some essential security features.
  9. 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?
  10. 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.

  11. I normally use AirVPN with openvpn in my computer, with openresolv to allow openvpn to connect to the server then change the DNS so it is tunnelled through the VPN connection. The openvpn config file I downloaded specifies a country, not a particular server, so DNS resolution is needed initially to make the connection. However I am interested in putting the VPN inside a router instead, and I have been experimenting. Looking at the instructions for ddrwt and here: https://airvpn.org/topic/14378-how-can-i-get-vpn-servers-entry-ip-addresses/ it seems it will not be possible to continue using my existing per-country configuration, as I need to give a specific IP address, ie choose just one server (and edit the .ovpn file accordingly). At the moment, I am using an OpenNIC DNS server in parallel with the VPN one instead, but I'd rather not continue to do this. Am I right in thinking each query goes to both DNS servers (rather than using the second one only if the first doesn't return an IP address)? Is there a way to select a country or region, rather than a specific AirVPN server, in this situation? I want to continue using openvpn manually as I understand and trust this method. I am also more familiar with the command line (ssh into the router) than LEDE/OpenWRT, which is new to me.
  12. Goal We want to use AirVPN's SSL tunneling mode on Android. SSL tunneling can be very useful, especially to defeat firewalls that block OpenVPN or SSH on a protocol level. We will use the Termux Terminal Emulator to install and run stunnel and OpenVPN for Android to manage the OpenVPN connection. Requirements Android 6.0 or newer (5.0 and derivatives thereof such as FireOS should work too)the Android device does not have to be rootedGoogle PlayStore or the free & open source F-Droid market (recommended)OpenVPN for Android (FOSS) – or Air's official Eddie Android Edition Please stay tuned for future Eddie releases as they may include native SSL tunnel support (which would make this cumbersome guide unnecessary)Termux Terminal Emulator (FOSS)stunnel (FOSS), via Termux repositorya separate computer to download/edit the config files (entirely optional, but recommended) Setup instructions Part 1: generate AirVPN config files 1/7: open AirVPN's config generator. When asked for your operating system, pick Linux: 2/7: Choose servers: Pick a single server. Do not select more than one. Do not select a whole region. 3/7: Protocols: First, enable Advanced Mode: Now select the SSL mode, port 443: 4/7: Accept Terms of Service and generate the config files: 5/7: Download the generated zip archive: 6/7: unzip AirVPN.zip and open the *.ssl file in a text editor. find this line: pid = /tmp/stunnel4.pid replace it with: pid = /data/data/com.termux/files/home/stunnel4.pid 7/7: Now transfer the AirVPN folder to your phone's sdcard / main storage directory. For ease of use, don't put it into any subdirectories. Instead, put it into your "root" storage directory, meaning on the same level as your other default Android folders such as Documents, Download and Movies. Part 2: Install and prepare Android software 1/3: Install OpenVPN for Android, via F-Droid or Play Store. Don't configure anything just yet. 2/3: Install Termux Terminal Emulator, via F-Droid or PlayStore open Termux and run: termux-setup-storageAllow Termux to access files on your device. (Android 8.0 Oreo users, please read the note at the end of this tutorial).The pkg command is used to install und update software packages. Make sure your base packages are all up to date: pkg upgradenow install stunnel: pkg install stunnel 3/3: Still in Termux, jump to the AirVPN folder you copied to your phone: cd storage/shared/AirVPNThe command lsshould list 3 files: AirVPN*.ovpn (the OpenVPN config file)AirVPN*.ssl (the stunnel config file)stunnel.crt (stunnel certificate)Now start stunnel: stunnel AirVPN*.ssl press the Home button to get out of Termux.Start OpenVPN and import the AirVPN*.ovpn config fileEdit your new OpenVPN connection (tap the "pencil button")in the ALLOWED APPS tab, tick the box next to Termuxreturn to OpenVPN's connection listyour VPN connection is now configured. A tap on its name will establish the connection.verify that a connection has been established by looking for the log entry Initialization Sequence Completedbrowse to ipleak.net (or any similar site) to verify that your traffic is indeed routed through the VPN tunnelHere's a short video, demonstrating the steps above: https://vimeo.com/246306477 Part 3: Usage instructions Now that everything is configured, future usage will be much easier: open Termuxnavigate to your AirVPN folder: cd storage/shared/AirVPNnow run stunnel: stunnel AirVPN*.sslPress the Home button and open the OpenVPN appConnect to your VPN profile Addendum: Tips as an alternative to OpenVPN for Android, you can also use Air's official Eddie Android edition. Don't forget to dive into Eddie's settings to exclude ("blacklist") Termux from the VPN tunnel.don't forget to periodically run pkg upgradeto keep all of Termux' packages, including stunnel, up-to-date.To prevent leaks, it's recommended to let OpenVPN set the default route for both IPv4 and IPv6; as well disabling the LAN bypass: you may want to take a look at Termux:Widget (via F-Droid or Play Store. It's an extension to Termux. If you put your stunnel commands into shell scripts, stored in ~/.shortcuts/ , you can launch them via Home screen widgets.enable Termux' extended keyboard by sliding out the left-side menu and long-pressing the KEYBOARD button. This will enable a row of additional keys, such as CTRL, ALT and TAB which are very useful in a terminal environment -- especially the TAB key, allowing you to autocomplete command and path names. Here's a short video on Vimeo demonstrating the extended keyboard.you may generate config files for as many servers as you like, put them into your AirVPN folder on your phone and add the *.ovpn profiles to OpenVPN.you may want to consider AFWall+ for additional firewalling (root required)it is recommended to move the *.ssl and stunnel.crt files out of Android's shared storage and into Termux' private data directory, while also deleting the no longer needed *.ovpn file: cd ~ mkdir st cd storage/shared/AirVPN cp *.ssl stunnel.crt ~/st rm *.ssl stunnel.crt *.ovpn Moving those files obviously changes the paths of your Termux commands. Instead of running: cd storage/shared/AirVPN stunnel AirVPN*.ssl You'd now need to run: cd ~/st stunnel AirVPN*.ssl Addendum: Caveats Following this tutorial will add the Termux app to OpenVPN's exclusion list, allowing it connect to the VPN server. But this also means that anything else you may do via Termux will also bypass the VPN tunnel. If you need a VPN-tunneled terminal app, I recommend using Termux only to run stunnel; using another terminal emulator app for your other tasks.

  13. I always get this error no matter what: Sat Dec 2 19:17:00 2017 daemon.err openvpn(LA_VPN)[4922]: Options error: specify only one of --tls-server, --tls-client, or --secret Sat Dec 2 19:17:00 2017 daemon.warn openvpn(LA_VPN)[4922]: Use --help for more information. Screenshots are attached, OpenVPN version is 2.4.4-2, is there anything I can do to fix this through LuCI?
  14. In OpenVPN for iOS, Is it possible to view the list of specific servers in a country profile before connecting to one? Eddie has that option, and I sometimes use it if I need a server in a specific location. For iOS, I’ve downloaded a config file for a country, but OpenVPN seems to choose the best server within that country automatically, invisibly. (Which is usually very helpful but sometimes not.) I’ve downloaded some config files for specific servers within that country, so I can connect directly to a specific server if I want, but having to connect to each one first to see its performance is silly. Thanks.
  15. I'm running OpenVPN on DD-WRT. Everything seems to work fine, but in the OpenVPN logs I see I guess this means the configuration will stop working at some point? Is there some other configuration I should use instead?
  16. Hi, I'm getting an error when trying to connect on Windows 10. It says: "OpenVPN: Route gateway is not reachable on any active network adapters:". It didn't do this when I first installed AirVPN Client. How can I fix this? Thanks
  17. 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.
  18. Hello, I have problems when downloading with AirVPN on Ubuntu 16.04 using OpenVPN client. I have tried switching to other VPN servers, but still have problems with the download speed. The speed often goes to zero and sometimes it goes up, but then quickly drops to zero again. For example it goes up to 1.1Mbit and then slowly goes back to zero. And 1.1Mbit is not even close to my actual network speed. When I disable openvpn the download speed is back to normal. Any ideas why this is happening? Cheers!
  19. Hey, the day before yesterday, I installed QVPN on my QNAP 253a. There, I used a OpenVPN file form AirVPN. Without VPN, I get spends of about 35 MB/s. With VPN, I get a maximum of 2 MB/s. The CPU should be fast enough for it and while connected with OpenVPN I do not get high CPU usage. I tired it with UPC and TCP but it won't get faster. Do you have any idea what could fix it? Thanks for your help! Regards, Hannes
  20. 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

  22. 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.)
  23. Hi all, I've followed the instructions at https://airvpn.org/topic/11431-using-airvpn-with-linux-from-terminal/ in order to set up my account. This works fine and leak-free, when my local networks gives me an IPv4 address -- but if I get an IPv6 address, that address is leaked to remote sites according to https://ipleak.net/ . How do I prevent that? Thanks, Chris
  24. I was reading the locked thread about AirVPN updating their server-side in response to the article about security vulnerabilities in OpenVPN, and was wondering how a user of, say Windows, or a user with OpenVPN on their mobile device would go about updating in a way that would maintain the settings they're currently using for AirVPN? The aforementioned thread does include a way to update in Linux, but doesn't say anything about other OS systems.
  25. I am looking for a new VPN service for I am experiencing geolocation problems with my actual provider. AirVPN looks like could be the one that suits me quite well. Actually, it could be perfect if it had 5 connections but I know this is not an option, unlikely... Anyway, browsing around the site I got a doubt and I am asking for clarifications. If I got it right, when I am connected to any server (let's say a server in Hong Kong) I can still access georestricted contents for some broadcasters (for example, BBC, FranceTV, RAI, RSI). All of these from within the same server! Is it right? If so, is it true for any server? In the case, I am puzzled: how does it work? On the other side, if a site which is georestricted is not in the "granted" list in the "Website support" page, then to access it I need to connect to a server in the same country as the site, right? So, if there is not such a server, I can not access such a site (and, I must say, the list of countries with a server is not impressive). Now a couple of questions about the client and the connection. I am using linux, so I think I have two options: AirVPN client (aka Eddie) or openvpn. Is there a difference between the two of them? Is one of them to be preferred (and why)? Is it possible, with any of them, to choose an "auto" connection (ie, the one which should be the best at the moment of going up)? I am asking this because on my desktop it would make little to none difference to use one client or the other, but I am also using it on my raspberry where for me the (much) preferred choice would be openvpn, so I would like to get the most from such client. Thank you in advance.
