Hi everyone,

 

I would like to continue to use Air Vpn, when I go to yhe payment page I am getting the following message:

 

"We recommend that you are not connected to Tor or some proxy or VPN to prevent triggering of security systems which might block your transaction."

 

I do not have the network lock activated, if I disconnect Air Vpn, I am not able to use the internet.

 

Could someone help please?

Thanks

What ZPKZ said, it's highly likely the DNS, happened on my old PC after it crashing so many times(not related to airVPN just a shitty and old system I had) my DNS was locked to theirs and when I DC from the VPN my IP obviously isn't accepted by their DNS and I couldn't get online.

But normally GDATA firewall disables the Windows firewall.



I'm using 2.9.2 with Win8.1 and unfortunately the Network Lock does not appear to work as I had expected.

If it's activated at client start-up I've assumed that no internet activity would be permissible until a connection to AirVPN has been established. Am I wrong?

I can see the firewall rules are in place but can browse using my normal internet connection whilst the network lock is active.


This is an unexpected and unobserved behavior. Do you have any other firewall installed in your system? Can we see the client logs, taken after Network Lock has been (allegedly) activated?

Kind regards



I have the same problem. Air sets the network lock but I can browse the internet anyways with not connected to a VPN. Besides the windows firewall I'm also using GDATA Internet Security. I'm attaching my log file.

Hopefully you can fix it, otherwise the network lock is useless to me.

Hello,

 

you can't run two firewalls simultaneously. You would have two programs with high privileges competing to modify packet filtering tables of the OS, with unpredictable (and usually unwanted) outcome.

 

Kind regards

So what does this mean? The netlock feature only works with the Windows firewall? Do people that use other firewalls like GDATA, Symantec, Bitdefender etc. have to configure their firewalls manually in order to achieve the same lock as the netlock feature of the AirVPN client?

 

Yes, definitely. Network Lock is a plug-in that (in Windows) sets Windows firewall rules. Please see also here:

https://airvpn.org/topic/12175-network-lock

 

Kind regards

 

Hello,

 

I was reading up about this feature and came across this thread. I am using ESET Internet Security, so Windows Firewall is definitely disabled and ESET Firewall is running in its place. However, Network Lock works fine for me. I don't see any changes to either firewall's rules when Network Lock is on, and Windows Firewall is not turned on when it is activated either, so I am wondering how it is working when you said it clearly shouldn't unless you are using Windows Firewall. Does it have something to do with ESET, or have some changes been made to Eddie that allow Network Lock to work with other firewalls?

 

Thank you.

Hello!

 

If you look at the changelog, you'll find the addition of WFP. Which added Windows Filtering Platform, thus Windows Firewall isn't used. This allows for better integration with 3rd party security software such as ESET.

 

Biggest changes in Eddie 2.11:
 
- Latest versions of OpenVPN (2.3.11) and stunnel (5.32), built with OpenSSL 1.0.2h.
- A new Network Lock method under Windows (Windows Firewall not used anymore)
- A new IPv6 lock method under Windows
- A new DNS lock method under Windows

 

So I should think that's why :). You'll note the date of the Staff post you quoted.


Hi there, are you new to AirVPN? Many of your questions are already answered in this guide. Its Guides Section has guides on Linux/Torrenting/Blocked sites & many other topics too.
Moderators do not speak on behalf of AirVPN. Only the Official Staff account does. Please read the First Questions section in the link above for more details, thank you.
Did you make a guide or how-to for something? Then contact me to get it listed in my new user guide's Guides Section, so that the community can find it more easily.
