I'm wondering if it's possible to run Eddie without root privileges in Linux.

 

I realize root is probably needed for openvpn and iptables. But in general I prefer to not give blanket root privleges to a whole application like Eddie.

 

If there were a way to enter the root password just when openvpn and iptables need it, without giving root privileges to the whole application, that would be nice.

Hello!

 

This is currently not possible but it is planned. It will take time though, it's not for the very near future. Some privileges modulation and drop could be implemented in Eddie 3, the next major branch. However, this change has not yet been approved for Eddie 3, we can't guarantee it will not be postponed.

 

Kind regards

Okay, thanks for the response. I'm glad this idea is planned and that AirVPN cares about details like this!
