  1. Hello, I'm using Ubuntu for the very first time on my new raspberry pi 4 B and I'm struggling to install the Eddie Client 2.16.3. When "choosing my flavor" of Eddie I'm selecting "Linux", then "ARM Raspberry PI", then "Debian / Ubuntu". I then get an error come up "Error: Wrong architecture 'armhf' -- Run dpkg -- add-architecture to add it and update afterwards". I must be doing something wrong somewhere? Help please! Thank you
  2. To connect I usually just download an .ovpn file and type in terminal "sudo openvpn <.ovpn file>" and the connection works. Or I go to gnome connection manager and "import saved configuration", import the .ovpn file and use that to connect graphically. However, I have noticed other vpn providers - they only provide these .ovpn files for Android. For ubuntu linux set ups they recommend manually importing the certificates and changing the settings in the advanced settings manually. Is there a difference in these methods? is one method more secure ? is it okay to just import a whole saved configuration from an .ovpn file for ubuntu linux, rather than manually entering the certificate etc ?
  3. Hi it seems that on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, Eddie2.16.3 uses OpenVPN client:2.3.10. anyway to force using the airvpn openvpn/stunnel version instead?
  4. When I run the eddie client on my laptop with ubuntu 16.04, and network lock activated and allow LAN/private ticked in preferences (see attached), some services will connect, e.g. emby and others will not, e.g. KDEconnect. When eddie is not running I can connect. I saw that on this thread https://airvpn.org/topic/29634-wonky-lan-access/ someone was maybe having a similar with MAC and wondered if there was a workaround for ubuntu/linux? I am not very technical and only understand about 5% of what I'm reading on these forums so need it simple, apologies if asking for the impossible!!
  5. Platform: Ubuntu 16.04 Eddie version 2.16.3 (same behaviour on 2.16.1) Recently my VPN connection has started breaking down at irregular intervals (sometimes within 24 hours of a successful reconnect, sometimes after a few days). I only see a simple error pop-up displayed, telling me that there is "no server available". There are still servers listed in the overview, but I'm not able to automatically or manually reconnect until I force quit Eddie altogether and restart. After that, it works normally again - until the next drop. The behavior started about a 1-2 months ago, when I was still using Eddie 2.16.1, but has continued after a recent upgrade to 2.16.3. Log file attached; saved after the most recent occurrence. Eddie_20181115_092221.txt
  6. Ed. actually see my latest reply to this topic for some python code to modify all all your ovpn files at once ---------- Hi all - inspired by some other threads I've been involved in here is part 1 of my Ubuntu setup - please don't hesitate to correct or comment: The OS ====== I use Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS. I don't use 18.04 LTS as I have found it difficult get it set up just right. In particular I find preventing DNS leakage almost impossible. Software & Updates ================== Change the update server to the main server because you'll want to use apt while connected to your VPN and you don't want it connecting back to your country of origin's mirror GRUB ==== I modify /etc/default/grub thus: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="ipv6.disable=1 quiet splash" i.e. I disable ipv6 in GRUB as it's been my experience I cannot stop leaks and other unwanted peer communication whilever ipv6 is enabled. (don't forget to run update-grub after) UFW === This is my minimal ufw init script: ufw reset ufw enable ufw default deny incoming ufw allow in 67/udp # for DHCP ufw allow in 53/udp # DNS ufw deny out 22,23/tcp # deny telnet and ssh ufw reload ufw status verbose FIREFOX -P ========== In Terminal run firefox -P, create a new profile "maxprivacy" and deselect the option for the default profile. Find the section on WebRTC and further securing firefox at https://privacytools.io (i.e. go through all the instructions to modify the settings such as geo.enabled and webgl.disabled etc.) OPENVPN 2.4 =========== Ubuntu 16.04.5 doesn't come with OpenVPN 2.4 so you have to install it using the instructions here: https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/wiki/OpenvpnSoftwareRepos AIRVPN CONFIG GENERATOR (https://airvpn.org/generator/) ======================================================= Check "Advanced Mode" Click Linux Check "Separate keys/certs from .ovpn file" Check "Resolved hosts in .ovpn file" <-- VERY IMPORTANT - STOPS YOUR ISP KNOWING YOU'RE CONNECTING TO AN AIRVPN SERVER Scroll down to where the "Entry IP" 3 and 4 are (i.e. we only want to use the servers with TLS encryption enabled) Select protocols UDP 443, 2018, 41185 for Entry 3 and Entry 4 Scroll down to where the individual servers are listed and click "Invert Selection" - now all the individual servers will be downloaded with resolved hostnames Scroll to bottom of page and select both checkboxes then click Generate On the generated settings page scroll all the way down till you see the ZIP file and download it. In Terminal: ------------ mkdir ~/mytemp && mkdir ~/mytemp/ovpntemp cd ~/mytemp/ovpntemp unzip ~/Downloads/AirVPN.zip rm ~/Downloads/AirVPN.zip chmod 600 *key # this makes sure only your user account can access your key files mkdir ~/.airvpn mv *key ~/.airvpn mv *crt ~/.airvpn # moving keys and certs to upper level directory - you only need one copy mkdir ~/.airvpn/UDP-443-TLS-PRI && mkdir ~/.airvpn/UDP-443-TLS-ALT mv Air*443*Entry3* ~/.airvpn/UDP-443-TLS-PRI mv Air*443*Entry4* ~/.airvpn/UDP-443-TLS-ALT repeat for ports 2018 and 41185 (i.e. make directories UDP-2018-TLS-PRI etc. and move the ovpn files) MODIFY OVPN FILES ================= This part is a little laborious unless you're handy with python or something to write a script to modify all your ovpn files. Basically before you connect to a particular server change the following lines in the ovpn file: ca "../ca.crt" # remember our key and crt files are one level above cert "../user.crt" key "../user.key" remote-cert-tls server cipher AES-256-CBC comp-lzo no proto udp tls-crypt "../tls-crypt.key" auth sha512 # the following part locks down the DNS when connected script-security 2 up /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf down /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf CONNECT TO VPN SERVER IN TERMINAL ================================= sudo openvpn <the ovpn file you just modified - be in the same directory as it> In the output you should see something like this: ... Mon Nov 12 18:53:38 2018 /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf tun0 1500 1553 x1.x2.x3.x4 init dhcp-option DNS y1.y2.y3.y4 Mon Nov 12 18:53:44 2018 /sbin/ip route add z1.z2.z3.z4/32 via m1.m2.m3.m4 Mon Nov 12 18:53:44 2018 /sbin/ip route add via y1.y2.y3.y4 Mon Nov 12 18:53:44 2018 /sbin/ip route add via y1.y2.y3.y4 Mon Nov 12 18:53:44 2018 Initialization Sequence Completed ... but CHECK THE DNS resolver using dig: dig www.ubuntu.com ... ;; Query time: 422 msec ;; SERVER: y1.y2.y3.y4#53(y1.y2.y3.y4) <-- if you see here something is wrong! ;; WHEN: Mon Nov 12 20:02:37 AEDT 2018 ;; MSG SIZE rcvd: 59 CHECK YOU HAVE NO DNS LEAKAGE and WebRTC is DISABLED ==================================================== Run firefox and select the maxprivacy profile https://ipleak.net/ https://dnsleaktest.com/ (run exteneded tests) Also in a separate terminal window you can run: sudo tcpdump -v -n 'port 53' -i tun0 which will show you all DNS resolution - you should only see server y1.y2.y3.y4 being used ----------- This is a work in progress - I'm yet to add sections for setting up rtorrent and running Tor browser ----------- DISCLAIMER: I have no formal training in Linux everything i know I've learnt from books or online.

  7. I upgraded my ubuntu to 18.10 from 18.04 yesterday and the eddie airvpn client no longer seems to work, is this a current known issue to be resolved? or will it no longer be supported on ubuntu going forward?
  8. I'm getting this https://i.imgur.com/QsHdko8.png when I click hide main window it stays on the desktop which is annoying can't make it disappear when I press show interface the normal interface shows up just fine Ubuntu 18.04 updated
  9. Hi everyone, I would like to set up a local webserver on a VM that is accessible through a public URL while sitting behind airvpn. Here is what I have got: QNAP NAS with Ubuntu 16.04 Server VM up and running (LAMP Server)PFSENSE Router that holds the openvpn connection to airvpn for all devices passing through the routerDnamic URL through https://www.dynu.com resolving to airvpn IP NOTE: I live in a restricted country where domains such as those of VPN providers are blocked (so I can't easily portforward and create a dynamic URL with a airvpn TLD.. QUESTION: is there a way I can have this setup work (and if so, how)? mydomain.com => AIRVPN => PFSENSE => VM (https and https, possibly also S/FTP and SSH) Most guides speak about the port forwarding with a URL that contains the airvpn domain name. I can't use that as mentioned above... Thanks for your support, I'll probably still need to setup the firewall rules on pfsense but that's the easier part I believe...
  10. Hi I am using eddie-ui 2.14.5 on ubuntu 18.04. I was used to start eddie from the terminal using the command: eddie-ui -cli -netlock -connect Then when i wanted to disconnect, I used to do Ctrl+c and it would shutdown the connection and then kill the process. But now using ctrl+c doesn't work anymore. It just get me back to the terminal but the process is still running in the background. I need to use "pkill -f eddie" to kill the process. Is this normal or is this a bug? I tried on Kali and i have the same issue. thanks
  11. Hello I have a very strange problem with my Windows 10 laptop. I try to make a VPN chain. My host OS is a freshly and clean installed Windows 10 Professional without any third party antivirus or firewall installed. I set up an Ubuntu virtual machine in vmware workstation player with NAT network setting. I can successfully connect to the first VPN server on my host OS and start up the virtual machine. When I go to ipleak.net (in the Ubuntu guest OS) i can see the ip address from the first VPN server, so far so good. But when I try to fire up the eddie client in the Ubuntu guest OS and make the second VPN connection it's always stuck on checking route and it fails to connect. After that, I tried to disable the VPN connection on my host OS. I can now make a VPN connection inside the Ubuntu guest OS without any errors. So, a VPN connection is possible on the host and guest OS, but chaining doesn't work. I tried exactly the same on my friends Windows 10 host machine and it worked right away. Why it doesn't on my Windows 10 Laptop?
  12. I currently running version 2.13.6 on Ubuntu Mate 16.04 in a Virtual Box machine on Windows 7 host. Ive been running this setup for a year or so with no real issues, but today I have experienced a very strange situation. As usual I connect to a USA server and have Network Lock activated at startup, I start my downloading, lock my machine and walk away for a while. Today when I came back after about an hour my Eddie client was not running at all, nor was the network lock active as I could still browse the web. Its as if I never started the Eddie client at all. I have experienced this only once before around 6 months ago but thought nothing of it. I have had Eddie crash in the past but the Network Lock would remain active and would require me to reboot the Virtual Machine and restart the Eddie client which would then take back control of the IPTables. Anyone else have this issue?
  13. running headless eddie 2.12.4 on ubuntu 14.04 using this command sudo /usr/bin/airvpn -cli -login='xxx' -password='xxx' -connect -netlock i got hit with a dmca notice on my server ip. i checked logs and saw that the vpn disconnected for a moment and it looks like the netlock did not work as the real ip was exposed.
  14. Trying to install it using the .deb package gives dependencies error. Using the portable version asks for "gksu" package. But afaik gksu has been removed from Ubuntu 18.04. Anyone who has got it to run?
  15. Hello, I've seen a few forum posts on this topic, but nothing that provides consistent direction. Setting up an Ubuntu server that's command line only (no GUI.) There seem to be a few options here to: 1. Connect the VPN on boot. 2. Lock traffic if the VPN drops. You could use Eddie via CLI and set it up to run on boot. You could call a generated openvpn config directly on boot and add appropriate iptables rules. Is one method preferred over the other from a security perspective? Does anyone have a good list of iptables rules I could combine with auto-launching openvpn if Eddie is not used? I could copy the rules applied by Eddie, but those are dynamically updated based on the AirVPN server list it seems (to allow those connections). Thanks! Jeff
  16. Eddie on Ubuntu 17, first install attempt did not complete sucessfully, due to other packages not being installed first. I did not keep track of what order I tried what commands, unfortunately. before the reboot, I did however, after searching on the forms, do this: sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys 3FA7E0328081BFF6A14DA29AA6A19B38D3D831EF echo "deb http://download.mono-project.com/repo/debian wheezy main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mono-xamarin.list sudo apt-get update then sudo apt-get install mono-complete After these otehr steps,, a reboot was required. After reboot, I tried again, and am prompted for root password, but then nothing else happens in terminal window. rebooted, tried again, no change. Thanks for any assistance
  17. Hi AirVPN forums. I'm using 2.13.6 of Eddie on Ubuntu 16.04 and noticed today that when I close the client (or as happened overnight it crashed) the IPTables firewall rules were reset, and all traffic was allowed!! I definitely only want to allow network traffic when AirVPN is connected. I believe this worked in the past - any suggestions?! Kind regards, randomusername
  18. I am looking for some support on installing the Eddie client on my pinebook. pine64@pinebook:~/Downloads$ uname -a Linux pinebook 3.10.105-bsp-1.2-ayufan-77 #1 SMP PREEMPT Sun Jul 9 12:09:30 UTC 2017 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux I tried the GUI debian/ubuntu and arm64 packages, but recieve the errors: pine64@pinebook:~/Downloads$ sudo dpkg -i eddie-ui_2.13.6_linux_x86_debian.deb dpkg: error processing archive eddie-ui_2.13.6_linux_x86_debian.deb (--install): package architecture (i386) does not match system (arm64) Errors were encountered while processing: eddie-ui_2.13.6_linux_x86_debian.deb pine64@pinebook:~/Downloads$ sudo dpkg -i eddie-ui_2.13.6_linux_armhf_debian.deb dpkg: error processing archive eddie-ui_2.13.6_linux_armhf_debian.deb (--install): package architecture (armhf) does not match system (arm64) Errors were encountered while processing: eddie-ui_2.13.6_linux_armhf_debian.deb Any assistance would be appreseated.

  19. Good Evening, I had a couple of questions about setting up a VPN with VirtualBox. I believe I have it setup properly, but thought Id ask just to be sure. (Hope this is the right place to ask...) Linux Disto: Ubuntu 16.04.3 64bit VirtualBox: 5.2.2 r119230 So, to start, I setup the VM with 4GB RAM, and 150GB of storage, and keep the network adapter attachment set to NAT(Not sure if it should be left like this). I install ubuntu as usual, and once completed, I begin by disabling IPv6 using the commands: sudo nano /etc/sysctl.conf I then add the three lines: net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1 net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6 = 1 net.ipv6.conf.lo.disable_ipv6 = 1 I then reboot and run the following command: cat /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/all/disable_ipv6 which replies with '1'. Success...I think. I reboot again to be sure and still see it dispayed as '1'. I download from the AIRVPN website the Linux-Debian/Ubuntu Eddie Client. I install Eddie using: sudo apt install "File Location" Successfully installs. I then notice it has 2 commands listed below in the download: wget -qO - https://eddie.website/repository/keys/eddie_maintainer_gpg.key|sudo apt-key add - This commands replies with a single line stating "OK" The next command doesnt work Deb is not a valid command: deb http://eddie.website/repository/apt stable main No biggy...probably. Afterwards, I do a quick "My IP" seach and see that both the host and guest public IPs are the same. I disable webRTC in Firefox, turn off tracking and history and rebooted the VM again. I check to make sure IPv^6 is disable in the Eddie Preferences, turn on network lock, login, and select my favorite AirVPN server. Once connect, I check with IPleak.net, and see that it connect properly. No leaks (as far as I can tell). I check my connection on my host, and it appears as normal(not connected to the VPN). With all this, I assume my VPN + VM setup is complete. The fact that my Public IP was the same kinda worries me, but it changed in the Guest OS after connecting to the VPN, so I assume it is setup properly. If anyone can confirm if this setup is valid, that would be fantastic. Thanks, That One Guy
  20. Hi, i thought this may be a good of a place as any to ask this question, I have seen more experienced linux users here than on ubuntu forums. I am trying to upgrade from Ubuntu 16.04.2 to 16.04.3 LTS. The issue is its trying to remove some important packages in the process. Can someone please tell me which packages need reinstalling to avoid issues. Below is the command results. ~$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Calculating upgrade... Done The following packages will be REMOVED: ubuntu-desktop xorg xserver-xorg-hwe-16.04 xserver-xorg-input-all-hwe-16.04 xserver-xorg-input-evdev-hwe-16.04 xserver-xorg-input-synaptics-hwe-16.04 xserver-xorg-input-wacom-hwe-16.04 xserver-xorg-video-all-hwe-16.04 xserver-xorg-video-amdgpu-hwe-16.04 xserver-xorg-video-ati-hwe-16.04 xserver-xorg-video-fbdev-hwe-16.04 xserver-xorg-video-intel-hwe-16.04 xserver-xorg-video-nouveau-hwe-16.04 xserver-xorg-video-qxl-hwe-16.04 xserver-xorg-video-radeon-hwe-16.04 xserver-xorg-video-vesa-hwe-16.04 xserver-xorg-video-vmware-hwe-16.04 The following NEW packages will be installed: libxfont2 The following packages will be upgraded: xserver-xorg-core-hwe-16.04 1 to upgrade, 1 to newly install, 17 to remove and 0 not to upgrade.

Anyone giving advice will know that "Y" and reboot will cause problems. Thank you for any assistance provided.
  21. I tried this on mint, ubuntu, and now manjaro. I create the configuration files and I import them into the network manager, the connection gets established, I even go on the airvpn site and it's telling me connection was made, but i look up my IP and it's my real IP. I don't get it.
  22. Since yesterday I cant connect to any address without using Eddie. I deactivated network lock but I'm still not able to connect. IPtables state: sudo iptables --list Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination sudo ip6tables --list Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination Content of /etc/resolv.conf: # Dynamic resolv.conf(5) file for glibc resolver(3) generated by resolvconf(8) # DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE BY HAND -- YOUR CHANGES WILL BE OVERWRITTEN # is the systemd-resolved stub resolver. # run "systemd-resolve --status" to see details about the actual nameservers. nameserver Also ping to any address isnt working: ping: google.com: Name or service not known The connection through Eddie in any server of airVPN works without any troubles. Any ideas what is wrong?
  23. Hi I installed ubuntu 17.10. Eddie does not work anymore with the new Wayland display server. I have to change on Xorg. An Eddie client update is required to work with the new Wayland display server. The Xorg option is temporary because Ubuntu (canonical) has definitlety adopted Wayland since 17.10 Regards.
  24. Hi, I am seeking some help with an issue that I have. I have airvpn set up and install on my ubuntu machine that I am using as a file/media server. I have gotten plex to work remotely perfectly. Before installing airvpn, I would connect to this media server using my windows machine by putting in the domain name that I assigned to the media server into putty on the windows machine and I would connect and do whatever I needed to do via the command line. After installing airvpn and running it on the ubuntu machine (media server) I can no longer connect via putty from the windows machine to the ubuntu machine (media server) Can a staff or admin provide me with some kind of help on this topic so I can fix this issue. Thank you.
