I've been completely unable to get a reliable connection to AirVPN ever since I installed Windows 10.  Typically it will connect, then appear to 'freeze up', then go through a cycle of multiple disconnect/reconnects ad infinitum.  I think this issue actually originated earlier with Win7 but wasn't as frequently occurring.

 

Sometimes it appears to work albeit erratically but as soon as I launch eMule - Bam!  Data rates drop to a few 10s of bytes per second and shortly thereafter the disconnect/reconnect cycle begins.

 

It used to be that removing the tap driver and allowing the client to reinstall it seemed to fix the issue for that one time connection (immediately after the reinstall), but now that doesn't even work reliably.

 

About once in every 10 connection attempts I'll get a connection that works and stays stable.

 

Linux connection seems OK, my next step will be to set up a Linux VM to use in the hope of getting some use out of the service.

Hello!

 

Which client are you using? Maybe you should try the Beta. It's not uncommon that Windows 10 decides to destroy your dreams lol. Maybe you could also try a different torrent client, such as qBittorent and do your port forwarding. Lastly, we do need some logs :). Eddie does need a certain version of the .Net framework, so perhaps you should try running Windows update and/or finding the latest .Net framework to download separately.

Which version of the .net framework do we need? 4.5 appears to be the latest and is built in to Windows 10 by default.

"Eddie for Windows 7 can run with .NET framework 2, while Eddie for Windows 8/10 needs .NET framework 4." :)

The most recent version is 4.6.2.


Always remember:
There's a guide to AirVPN,

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here,
running TOR exits is discouraged,

using spoilers for your logs helps us read your thread.

~ Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. ~

Instead of writing me a personal mail, consider contacting me via XMPP at gigan3rd@xmpp.airvpn.org or join the lounge@conference.xmpp.airvpn.org. I might read the mail too late whereas I'm always available on XMPP ;)
