  1. I've followed the instructions for building the AirVPN client here, and it seems to run just fine. The downloaded copy doesn't seem to like the newer version of Mono I'm running, but building it on my machine seems to work ok when I run it (so far). How do I make a .deb package or otherwise install it? I've tried the Tools|Build Package, but that gets me a tar.gz file which I'm really not sure about, and I'm also unsure as to exactly which segments I need to select anyway.

  3. Hey..I have recently (and happily) moved to Ubuntu and "re-upped" my membership with AirVPN. One issue. My ISP is blocking some of my ports so downloading the required dependances or accessing the repository either by Synaptic, the Software Updater or the Ubuntu Software Center. I am looking for a workaround, I cant seem to find how to switch ports or download a full copy of Airvpn dependancies so I can get this to work. Thanks!
  4. Hi, I'm connecting through Eddie 2.9 in Ubuntu. In the preferences I have LAN and ping both enabled, and I've also whitelisted the ip address of the networked printer at my office. But I still can't access it unless I turn network lock off. But I can access other computers on the LAN. It's just the printer that I can't talk to. Any advice?
  5. Hello! ubuntu 14.04LTS Is there a simple way to bypass the vpn for plex or rather a specific port? I need a direct connection to my dedicated server for plex. Any help is very much appreciated. Thx! edit: I found a simple solution for ubuntu. Now, I use an ubuntu lxc-container for everything that I want to do with AirVPN (openvpn). The main system does not connect to AirVPN, thus I can easily establish a direct connection with my plex server. I know this should be possible with firewall rules and routes, but this is a good option for me.
  6. Hi. I use AirVPN in Ubuntu's network manager and would like to use it as tap0, as opposed to tun0, so that I can bridge my connection via ethernet cable to another device (one which is not as easy to configure) and have it connect to the Internet the same way a virtual machine would (i. e. connecting through AirVPN the way my PC would). Unfortunately, I have found no way to bridge (or otherwise sharee) the connection besides using a TAP device. However, upon changing the .ovpn files from 'dev tun' and 'persist-tun' to 'dev tap' and 'persist-tap', I have found that I am unable to access the Internet. There doesn't seem to be a whole lot out there on sharing a VPN connection via Ubuntu, so I'd appreciate any suggestions that you might have for me. Oh, and if this is possible, I wonder why AirVPN files pick TUN over TAP. Is it in any way safer? Would I be compromising security in this case to get a little more functionality?
  7. Hi all, I have the Linux AirVPN Eddie Client 2.8.8 running on Lubuntu. When I try to "Save As" the log files from the GUI it defaults to a "Desktop" directory. As you can see on the attached screenshot, I saved a log file called AirVPN_log.txt. However, it seems that this is not really my desktop. The saved file doesn't show up on my desktop and other files that are on my desktop don't show up in the "Save As" Desktop folder... From the "Save As" dialog I can not navigate to any folder that is familiar to me. There is also no way to open, delete or move files already saved (like the AirVPN_log.txt file). My question is: where does AirVPN save these log files? I can not find the AirVPN_log.txt anywhere on my system, still the Eddie Client seems to have saved it somewhere. Thanks in advance
  8. Hey there, So I'm using the AirVPN client on ubuntu and I've two questions: 1) How do I make it so the client starts at system startup? I already added "sudo airvpn" to the system-startup thing and in the airVPN client I checked the box "Connect at startup". It's still not working.. Any idea why? 2) What's the name of the process in the system-monitor? The other day I had a problem with the client and couldn't/didn't-know-how-to kill it because I couldn't find the process..
  9. I would like to be able to use VPN only with Hexchat. I'm using eddie 2.7. I'm on elementary OS. Is there a way to do this so the VPN only gets used through Hexchat?
  10. Hi guys! So I am attempting to setup my Transmission bittorrent client with Transdrone (Transdroid) app on Android. I want to be able to use this android remote app to connect to my desktop (where Transmission is running) while I am connected to this VPN. So I: 1) Connected to a server (say Server A). 2) Configured port forwarding on AirVPN's site (AirVPN > Client Area > Forwarded ports). Let's say I forwarded port 7712 and 7713. 3) Logged into Transmission and set port 7712 as the Incoming port (Transmission > Preferences > Network) and made sure 'Pick a random port at startup' was unchecked. 4) Allowed remote access (HTTP) from port 7713 and configured username/password authentication. Made sure 'Only allow these IP addresses' was unchecked. 5) Then set my firewall to allow incoming connections from port 7712 and 7713 (TCP). * I DID NOT log into my router and configure port forwarding for these ports (or any for that matter). When I hit the 'Test Port' button (Transmission > Network) to test port 7712, it says 'Port is OPEN'. Cool. ----- So what is my post about? Well there are some instructions on this page that confuse the heck outta me: https://airvpn.org/faq/p2p/ I do not understand what is being communicated here... "If you forward a port for a p2p torrent client, do NOT remap it to a different local port and make sure that the torrent client port matches the remotely forwarded port number" - What is meant by "do not remap it to a different local port"? Am I supposed to log into my router and setup port forwarding for port 7712 & 7713? "do NOT forward on your router the same ports you use on your Bittorrent or eMule client (or any other listening service) while connected to the VPN" - Doesn't this contradict the previous instruction? What is the correct way to configure port forwarding so that my P2P client will work with my android remote app? (and seed)
  11. Hello, I have Ubuntu 12.04.3LTS on a bootable flash drive and I am trying to get AirVPN to work. I can get the download but the install keeps failing. I have tried a couple different things I have seen posted on the forums, but the install is not going - when I go to import I keep getting message that the file doesn't contain the correct VPN info. Is it even possible to get Air working on a bootable Linux flash drive?
  12. UPDATE 01-SEP-17 Due to multiple, critical problems in network-manager-openvpn which after years have not been solved we recommend to NOT use it. Please understand that we will not provide support to network-manager-openvpn. In GNU/Linux we recommend that you run our free and open source software "AirVPN Suite", "Eddie" or OpenVPN directly Warning: Ubuntu 14.04 has an issue on configuration files import. At 25/04/2014 there's still no fix. Bug Report Go to Config Generator page, choose Linux and choose your preferred options. Select Advanced Mode Tick Separate certs/keys from .ovpn files Click on any archive format. Save the downloaded archive file somewhere, say in ~/.airvpn. Extract it. Five files should be extracted. Try to make sure nobody but you can read the file user.key, because that one is secret. Install the package named network-manager-openvpn-gnome, which is a plugin to NetworkManager handling OpenVPN connections. The install will automatically include all needed packages, like openvpn etc. Click on NetworkManager icon in top-right bar, and choose Edit Connections... Click Add, choose Import a saved VPN configuration, click Create... and choose a .ovpn file extracted from files generated by our Config Generator. The imported information is displayed. Click Save... and close the NetworkManager Connections editor. From now on, the imported connections are showed under VPN Connections menu. Click it to connect.
  13. I've read the instructions on adding a VPN via the GUI NetworkManager in Linux. I cannot get these options to save. I'm attaching a screen shot as this explains it much better than I can. All fields are populated, yet I cannot apply/save these settings. VPN via the command line does work, but I cannot create this connection via NetworkManager. Please help, it's driving me crazy!!
  14. Hi AirVPN team, On the same machine I have windows and ubuntu. On Windows: * Windows 8 Pro * Advanced Firewall used to limit internet traffic to only be through VPN * uTorrent w/ port forwarding * Usually peaks around 2.5mB/s. Max I've seen is 3mB/s+. * Server: Sirius, TCP On Ubuntu: * 12.04 Server (with minimal desktop installed) * UFW used to block all traffic out/in for internet except certain ports through VPN * Transmission w/ port forwarding * Usually peaks around 500kB/s. Max I've seen is 900mB/s. * Server: Sirius, UDP What can I do to increase the speed on Ubuntu? I think it's very odd that this is happening. Other variations are that the disks are different, but both are comparable 7200RPMs. Thanks
  15. Hi Guys, I am running Ubuntu 12.04 lts x86_64 and I have installed everything correctly and vpn works on all other configurations except for openvpn over ssl. when I use the command stunnel (see below) it gives me an openvpn error failed to initialize SSL I'm pretty frustrated trying to get this to work with gnome network manager or openvpn directly. can someone help?

  16. I managed to get my headless Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS running AirVPN fine. However, I can't seem to get any data connection, either thru wget or apt-get commands or anything else. Are there some tests I could run to see what it might be? Any help would be awesome! Thanks!
  17. I have just purchased this for port forwarding as i have 2 different computer that I want to use for webhosting and cannot port forward to 2 separate computers. I have installed network-manager-openvpn-gnome on the computer with Ubuntu. I do not have a GUI so the instructions to follow here https://airvpn.org/linux/ do not work. I have created openvpn in my home directory and uploaded the 4 files made in airvpn to here. i restarted openvpn and get the following NO VPN is running. What do I need to do next. I have not set up the port forwarding as yet. Thanks for any help.
  18. Hi everyone, I was using AirVPN for several month now on Mac OSX with Tunnelblick and it worked flawlessly. No I have configured it on my Ubuntu laptop, all settings exactly like in the help section and here: https://airvpn.org/?option=com_kunena&Itemid=55&func=view&catid=3&id=116 It works at first, AirVPN.org website tells me I'm connected, but just after a couple of seconds, I only get timeout errors. I'm using the network-manager under Ubuntu. Any idea? Thanks murph
  19. Hi just changed my OS to Ubuntu 12.04. Followed the instructions however every time I try to import one of the OVPN files downloaded I get an error message : "The file 'AirVPN_CH-Virginis_UDP-443.ovpn' could not be read or does not contain recognized VPN connection information: . Not sure what I am doing wrong. By the way I am new to linux environment. Thanks for nay help!
  20. Hey guys, I followed the instructions and when attempting to connect I get to Initalization Sequence Completed and then.. Nothing. It just hangs it seems like. Anyone have any suggestions?
