  1. I have changed the settings to use a different port other than 443, however using quick connect it still always connects to 443.
  2. Hi, I've always been able to use Quick Connect in the Android client but now it just says "End of server list reached. No server available for connection". I can connect to all my favorites without problem from the server tab so it's not like there's no servers available. What am I missing?
  3. After trying every free VPN on PC and Android that never matched my expectations with not enough data available or too slow, i wanted to try some paid VPN to see if it was better but most of them only give minimum a month with money back guarantee plans which looks like forced selling, so i dug and read every review and i found that AirVPN proposed a cheap 3 days trial so i could try it fully to see what it is like and it was excellent, even better than my connection without VPN, i could do streaming, torrenting, on my ArchLinux PC, my wife's Ubuntu based Linux PC, on my smartphone, it is very easy to use, a very good service for a very good price, so i took 3 months the first day of my 3 days trial and i will surely continue as long as the quality of the service is the same. Good job, this is what i was looking for in a VPN, i am a very satisfied customer.
  4. I use PCLinuxOS with Eddie and do not notice Eddie requiring me to relog in every 20-30 minutes. On my Android device it seems I'm re-logging in every 20 to 30 minutes. Retyping my password, clicking on quick connect. I'm wondering if other Android users are having the same problem. Thank you for your time in reading this thread.
  5. Hi, After I started to run the Eddie for Android I noticed that I was not getting any messages or calls in Signal Messenger. I also had problems with some apps on my Android Wear watch like weather that wouldn't update. As soon as I closed the VPN connection I got a stream of Signal messages and notifications and the weather app on my watch worked again. This makes it totally impractical for me to use the Eddie for Android if that setting is enabled. So I decided to disable it and get a serious warning that security was compromised. I have used the OpenVPN Connect app with AirVPN for a while without such problems. Maybe that client doesn't have the Persistent Tunnel settings? Anyway, if it turns out I have to have Persistent Tunnel set I just can't use Eddie for Android since apps and services I use all day just doesn't work. There should be a warning that the Persistent Tunnel setting may cause apps and services to not work on the phone. I now run without it and feel compromised but do not know whether I'm more compromised than I was using the OpenVPN Connect client or other VPN services on Android. Could someone who knows more about these things than I do please clarify and explain the thinking behind the setting and the warning when it's being disabled. //C
  6. A german IT security blogger recently discovered that NordVPN's official android app transmits personally identifiable information to NordVPN and a few third parties. The checked version of their app is v3.9.8 which seems a few versions behind the current branch but still fairly recent. The blogger discovered that a user's Google mail address along with the advertising ID and a bit of other info are sent to Iterable, AppsFlyer and Tune along with some Google services like Analytics - all seemingly without the user's consent and even without mentioning it in the app's ToS. Of course customer support has been asked as well. Their answer was not satisfactory: Everyone interested in some of the HTTP POSTs discovered can look at them in the article linked above. The article itself is German-language, but it doesn't contain more info than this, only a bit of the writer's opinion which I share: It's very questionable that a "no-log" or even "privacy-centered" VPN provider like NordVPN is bold enough to state "marketing reasons" as their justification to track users of their Android app. Even worse that this tracking is performed by third parties who will most likely use this data in cross-referencing... Try to avoid NordVPN. Searching for "NordVPN" in this forum alone will yield more than enough reason. One in three newly created threads is about them.
  7. Hello everyone I'm currently on a trial, and set up AirVPN successfully both on my NAS and Android terminal. So far, everything is working nicely. The one thing I couldn't do until now is getting my phone to connect to the VPN at boot. I've read that it was only available for OpenVPN profiles, so I imported one as well. However, on startup, nothing happens. As I'm in Always-On mode, I get a notification stating that no VPN connection has been established. When I open the Eddie app for the first time after reboot, it does connect to the profile by itself, but I still need to open the app manually. My device is a Nokia 7 Plus, running Android P. Perhaps unrelated question, but what are the "Authentication" settings used for ? (the ones between DNS and System sections). I did already put my airvpn credentials above, along with the master password.
  8. Hello, I was messing around with a local web page hosted on my raspberry pi for local projects, and using that web page works fine from my pc which has an ethernet cable to my router. However when I try to access the page with my android phone, I cannot connect to the web page. I can also not reach my router admin page from my android device, something that DOES work on my pc... All three devices: pc, android phone, raspberry pi are running on AirVPN. The moment I disconnect from the VPN, I can access the admin panel and the website from my phone. Is there a way to make devices connected via wifi while using the VPN able to access my router / other local machines? Thanks in advance.
  9. I know this has been asked before and was resolved by other means like configuring the VPN to work with specific applications. But I would like to see socks5 proxies supported because, android only allows one vpn at a time and most ad blockers work by creating a vpn. Thus meaning you cannot use air vpn alongside an android ad blocker like AdGuard or DNS66 etc but, you can use a proxy. Therefore, can you please add support for socks5 proxys like privateinternetaccess.com, torguard.net, nordvpn.com and others offer. Thanks
  10. Hello, I run Android 7.0 on an LG K10 smartphone. When I switched from OpenVPN to Eddie things worked out fine at first. I haven't messed around with the settings or anything, but now I notice that Eddie will disconnect from the VPN and logout without warning, thus leaving my phone exposed. Is it just me? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Best regards
  11. I was just wondering if it would be possible to set up AirVPN on my Amazon Fire Stick. My reason for doing this is that I wish to watch US Netflix programs and I am in the UK.
  12. Hi, Application Version: 2.0.1 Could someone please try to change the port or protocol settings within the Android Eddie Client as I seem to change the settings then when trying to connect and it just connects using Port 443 and UDP. This seems to be a bug for me and I would like to confirm it with someone else. Thanks.
  13. Hi, The Problem: Testing my connection speed outside of the VPN results in speeds of circa 50-75Mbps, however, in the VPN (through the Eddie client and a standard OpenVPN application) results in speeds of circa 5-10Mbps. Test conditions: Software: Android 9 Device: Oneplus 6T Network: EE (Max plan) Attempted Solutions: Changing to a wide range of servers (different countries and different servers within the same country)Changing the portChanging the Encryption methodologyChanging Phones (seems to have the same issue with a Samsung S7 edgeI am open to suggestions as to why I seems to be throttled only when on my mobile connection as when I'm on my home Wifi the connection is near enough the smart regardless of the VPN. Thanks.
  14. Hi, I just installed most recent Eddie 2.x for Android on my phone and I like it very much! One important issue though. I'd like to have access to my local (home) network (e.g.192.168.x.x) with the tunnel enabled, as I use my device also as a remote for some home/local network services. Unfortunately Eddie Android does not allow that. Yes, I read about blacklisting the apps to make sure they are excluded of the tunnel, but honestly I find that rather inconvenient and clumsy. Is there another way? Is it possible to exclude/blacklist an IP range such as my home network like it seems to function that way in the desktop client? Kind regards, ZS
  15. 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. Addendum: Testing and bugs This tutorial has been tested on: Stock Android 6.0Stock Android 7.0Stock Android 8.0LineageOS 14.1 (~ Android 7.1.x)Fire OS 5.6.0.0 (~ Android 5.x), testing done by user steve74it Important Notice for Android 8.0+ (Oreo) users: The command termux-setup-storage does not work (yet).

  16. Hi, I just switched from another VPN provider to AirVPN. I got a little nervous when I relaized that the Linux client was Java based, but I'm over the "shock" watching the World Cup without any problems. I use VPN a lot on Android as well and see that there's no dedicated AirVPN client. I have found documentation for setting up the OpenVPN clients for Android to use AirVPN. I have tried the OpenVPN Connect client and it seems to work good. However, I was wondering if there's some consensus around here which OpenVPN client works best with AirVPN on Android, or if they all do the same thing with a some UI and feature differences?
  17. Does Android 9 (Pie) fully support IPv6? I'm wondering because I'm not sure which options to choose in AirVPN's Config Generator. Should I choose "IPv4 only," "IPv4 & IPv6 (connect with IPv4)," or "IPv4 & IPv6 (connect with IPv6)?" Right now, I'm using an AirVPN configuration with just IPv4. But, I'm wondering if one of the IPV6 options might be a better choice.
  18. I installed V1 of the Eddie client for Android on my Fire TV. I also activated an ovpn file. I kept the default configuration plus a whitelist of just a couple of apps to test. The client starts normally and connects, I can see in the little stats box that there is some minimum traffic, but after a few seconds, probably 30 or 60 at most it says the VPN tunnel has been locked. When I look in the logs it says there was an error and that it changed state to Lock VPN. I think it says it's event 14. The only way to get out of the lock is to disconnect and reconnect, but a few seconds later the error happens again. For what it's worth I use this other client successfully: http://plai.de/android/ Being a fire tv I'm not even sure how to export full logs. Any ideas?
  19. Tutorial: SSH-Tunneled VPN on Stock Android 0. Notes - no proprietary / commercial apps required. FOSS only! (Free and Open Source Software) - no root / custom ROM required - tested on Android 4.4.4 - minimum requirement: Android 4.x 1. Required apps - OpenVPN for Android - ConnectBot (any advanced SSH client will work, ) - CyanogenMod File Manager (or pick any file manager you like) I highly recommend installing all of these apps via F-Droid, a Free Open Source Software platform: https://f-droid.org/ In order to install F-Droid, you may need to temporarily "Allow installation of apps from unknown sources" in Android's security settings. 2. Generate config files Use the AirVPN Generator (https://airvpn.org/generator/) to create SSH config files for Linux (not Android). Only pick one specific server. Screenshot #1: http://i.imgur.com/FWcuXH2.jpg 3. Transfer config files We only need 2 out of the 3 generated files: - sshtunnel.key - the .ovpn profile Screenshot #2: http://i.imgur.com/p2L7T0l.jpg Transfer both of them to your Android's sdcard. Also, open the .ovpn file in a text editor and look for a line that starts with "route", it contains the server's IP - we will need it in step 5. Example: route 199.19.94.12 255.255.255.255 net_gateway That's the IP we will need. 4. Import key file in ConnectBot Launch ConnectBot. Go into menu and "Manage Pubkeys". Screenshot #3: https://i.imgur.com/uGT3UgC.jpg Import the sshtunnel.key file. Screenshot #4: https://i.imgur.com/ZPYhI6V.jpg 5. Configure SSH connection in ConnectBot Go to ConnectBot's main screen. At the bottom of the screen, enter: sshtunnel@199.19.94.12 (Notice, that's the IP we took note of in step 3). Screenshot #5A: http://i.imgur.com/ludTDgv.jpg If the default port 22 is blocked, you can try an alternative port by appending it at the end: sshtunnel@199.19.94.12:80 or sshtunnel@199.19.94.12:53 - Press Enter on your keyboard. It will try to connect and ask you to continue. Choose "Yes". Screenshot #5B: http://i.imgur.com/UJNpB9n.jpg - Cancel the connection, we need to configure it now. Long-press the newly created connection and choose "Edit host". Screenshot #6: https://i.imgur.com/n3OtM2D.jpg - Change "Use pubkey authentication" to "sshtunnel.key". Screenshot #7: https://i.imgur.com/CwfFSoO.jpg - Disable the option "Start shell session" Screenshot #8: https://i.imgur.com/l2niHqG.jpg - Consider enabling the option "Stay connected". 6. Configure SSH port forwarding - Go to ConnectBot's main screen. - Long-press the new connection again, but this time choose "Edit port forwards". "Add port forward" with the following values: Type: Local Source port: 1412 Destination: 127.0.0.1:2018 Screenshot #9: https://i.imgur.com/TBnsKQx.jpg - Press "Create port forward". Configuration of the SSH connection is now complete. - Go back to ConnectBot's main screen and tap the connection entry to establish a connection. Leave the ConnectBot app using your "home" button. 7. Import OpenVPN config - Launch "OpenVPN for Android" - Tap the folder icon. In the "Open from" dialog, choose "File Manager" Screenshot #10: https://i.imgur.com/Nhc6fDa.jpg - Pick the AirVPN_...SSH-22.ovpn file - OpenVPN will present you with an "import log", tap the "Save" file to accept. - You may want to dive into the new profile's settings, go to "ROUTING" and enable "Use default route". - in the ALLOWED APPS tab, find and select ConnectBot to exclude it from OpenVPN's routing 8. Start OpenVPN connection - In OpenVPN's main screen, tap the VPN profile to establish the connection. - Provided that the SSH connection is still running, OpenVPN will be able to connect. Congratulations 9. How to connect / disconnect from now on When establishing a connection, always - start the SSH connection first - then launch OpenVPN When disconnecting, always - disconnect the OpenVPN connection first - then disconnect SSH in ConnectBot 10. Thoughts on reliabilty and firewalling If avoiding network leaks is important to you: be careful on Android, especially on unreliable mobile or WiFi networks that might cause the connection to collapse quite often. I don't have a solution for this potential issue on stock Android, but if you're on a rooted device, you should absolutely consider installing AFWall+ (available in F-Droid). AFWall+ allows you to firewall individual apps, restricting their network access to VPN-only. (You have to dive into its settings to enable VPN mode). Finally: Good luck!
  20. Install Eddie - OpenVPN GUI for Android from Google Play Store or download the APK from our Eddie web site. Eddie is a free and open source application designed and developed by AirVPN. Launch your internet browser. NOTE: don't use the default Android browser because it has an unresolved bug. Chrome and Opera have been tested by us and work. Connect to AirVPN website, login and create the configuration files from our Config Generator. Choose Android as platform (only direct TCP and UDP connections are supported) and finally click the "Generate" button to download it. Downloaded .ovpn files may be imported directly into the application but the behavior depends on many factors (employed browser, files manager, Android version, etc). For simplicity's sake, we assume in this guide that you saved .ovpn generated files under the internal storage directory in the Android filesystem. Open Eddie - OpenVPN GUI for Android and tap the "Import profile" button: Browse to *.ovpn files: Tap the "Connect" button: Confirm the Android's security prompt dialog: Eddie is now connected and the VPN tunnel is now established: For advanced options tap the "Menu" icon: Tap "Settings" button: Advanced settings: Activity log: When you need to disconnect from the VPN click on the "Disconnect" button:
  21. Since it is not very easy to use a VPN from countries like Iran a recorded a tutorial on how to use airvpn from these countries: https://usefulvid.com/bypass-the-persian-and-chinese-firewall-by-using-airvpn-with-ssl/ The videos are hosted on my website and on youtube. The reason is that it is not possible to access youtube from Iran. https://youtu.be/jl8I2-GQF94 It would be nice if you could share this with your friends in Iran, China, Turkey, Russia, UAE, Saudi Arabia and provide feedback if this method works. You can also download this video from my website to make it easier to share and spread the word. A video on how to use stunnel on android will follow and also published on this site. Update on 6.1.2018: The Video for Android is finally published: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwf5JI6t0TI For all who suffer from youtube censorship this is the link for you: https://usefulvid.com/bypass-the-persian-and-chinese-firewall-by-using-airvpn-with-ssl/ Second Video on the page

  23. Hi I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S8+ running Android 8.0 and having issues with the VPN disconnecting after a few minutes (<1 hour) of not using the device. This happens with both OpenVPN for Android & the Eddie - OpenVPN GUI. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling OpenVPN for Android as well as deleted the config files and redownloaded them, but still doing so. Power Saving mode is off & I've also tried switching to other modes (Game/Entertainment/High performance). Does anyone know why/how to fix this? Apologies if this has already been discussed in another post/thread, I had a look but couldn't find anything, happy to use such a thread if you can point me to it. Thank you.
  24. I am using the Eddie for Android latest version, and with the IPv6 setting set to "request", and when I connect to one of the IPv6 enabled servers such as Capricornus, I do not have IPv6 connectivity, only IPv4. ipleak.net only shows the VPN IPv4 address, and I am unable to view IPv6 only sites such as ipv6.google.com. how can I fix this and be able to use the VPN'S IPv6 address?
  25. Hello. I live in the US and have been using VPN services here fine for around 2 years, but next week I am planning on going on a 3 week trip to Iran and am only bringing my mobile phone (Samsung Galaxy S9+ running Android 8.0.0) . I would like to know which VPN protocols, ports, and locations would be best for me to use while in Iran both in terms of effectively blocking censorship, and also in speed. Thank you
