  1. Whenever I read something about Windows 10, be it a news article or a forum post, I also read the word "privacy nightmare". It refers to excessive data collection practices by Microsoft's new operating system. Some of these can't even be disabled by going the usual way using built-in settings. Luckily, these are the forums of a VPN provider where you can find guides on what to look out for when you want to forcibly shut down the unnecessary "spying". And I wanted to contribute to this by introducing software which helps with this task.

Microsoft PN. Would really be a witty step after the last creative developer left Microsoft sometime after the Vista release. If you ask me, they instead hired devs who get an instant erection seeing so much data.... from just one Win10 installation.
  2. Hello, It appears that Eddie 2.10.3 always use bundled openvpn executable, even if I specify another executable under advanced settings. 2.11.x obeys the setting just fine though
  3. Recently joined and trying to lock down the fort. How can I patch up the DNS leak? I disabled IPV6 on Ethernet 2 and Wi-Fi adapters, and IPLeak appears to pass. Just DNS leaking.
  4. This might be covered elsewhere but I can't find it with search so I thought I'd ask. It takes a little while for Windows 10 to connect to a network (wired, in this case) after waking, but Eddie (v2.10.3) starts trying to re-connect before the network is actually up. In most cases this causes it to start connecting, fail, then re-connect, which seems like a waste of time. And since it takes longer to cancel the connection than to just let it try it's usually faster to just let it go. As well, if "Force reconnection to last server" is not checked it will sometimes connect to some random server that's nowhere near the fastest as the server list seems not to be updated for speed (no stars next to any servers and they'll be in a different, seemingly random order). Also, I'm not sure if this is related but if network lock is enabled it sometimes seems to trigger a loop wherein AirVPN can't connect/retries/fails/retries/etc. and I have to kill AirVPN, go into the adapter settings and turn DNS back to auto, re-open AirVPN and re-connect. Is there a way to make Eddie wait a few seconds before attempting to connect to ensure the network is up?
  5. I used Air without problems on win 7 and win8. I have a new laptop with win10. Using Eddie with this has been disastrous. Connection dropping, reconnection attempts in endless loops, then nothing. I am a computer novice. I kept getting DNS not resolved, or something like that, and I could not use my normal nternet connection. Trouble shooting with Win said certain protocols were missing, and I had to reinstall windows, as I didnt know how to fix it, and had nobody to ask. I have logged a ticket, but thought I would post it here as novices like me should be aware that Eddie will cause problems with Windows 10. Is it possible to use an earlier version of Eddie? Or is there a definitive fix? A "How To" guide is essential for Win10 users, as Eddie is not a working as a click and forget client.
  6. Running fine, 1 - 2 days without problem. Then all of a sudden it goes into a endless loop of failed connections. It first happened on last stable release thus the reasonI tried the experimental release. . 2015.08.02 10:48:38 - OpenVPN > open_tun, tt->ipv6=0 . 2015.08.02 10:48:38 - OpenVPN > CreateFile failed on TAP device: \\.\Global\{8538B42B-6DB8-40F0-ADF4-376A5E324539}.tap . 2015.08.02 10:48:38 - OpenVPN > All TAP-Windows adapters on this system are currently in use. . 2015.08.02 10:48:38 - OpenVPN > Exiting due to fatal error . 2015.08.02 10:48:53 - OpenVPN > open_tun, tt->ipv6=0 . 2015.08.02 10:48:53 - OpenVPN > CreateFile failed on TAP device: \\.\Global\{8538B42B-6DB8-40F0-ADF4-376A5E324539}.tap . 2015.08.02 10:48:53 - OpenVPN > All TAP-Windows adapters on this system are currently in use. . 2015.08.02 10:48:53 - OpenVPN > Exiting due to fatal error . 2015.08.02 10:49:01 - OpenVPN > open_tun, tt->ipv6=0 . 2015.08.02 10:49:01 - OpenVPN > CreateFile failed on TAP device: \\.\Global\{8538B42B-6DB8-40F0-ADF4-376A5E324539}.tap . 2015.08.02 10:49:01 - OpenVPN > All TAP-Windows adapters on this system are currently in use. . 2015.08.02 10:49:01 - OpenVPN > Exiting due to fatal error and so on... I check the network adapters and see no tun devices available to connect to. A reboot of the OS is the only option I have left which corrects the problem until next time.
  7. Hi all, Since upgrading to Windows 10 there is a build-in feature to use a VPN. Had any of you had any luck configuring it? I would like to use the VPN when it's needed and just browse on my normal connection when it's turned off. The browsing speeds were horrible on windows 7 and I had to turn it off everytime and changing the dns to be able to enjoy my 100mbit browsing experience and not a 33k6. Any help/input is appreciated!
