UPDATE 06.06.18: EDDIE 2.14.5 HAS BEEN RELEASED AS "STABLE" VERSION

 

Hello!

We're very glad to inform you that a new Eddie Air client version has been released: 2.14beta. It is ready for public beta testing.

To download Eddie 2.14beta please select "Other versions" > "Experimental" from the download page.

Please see the changelog:
https://eddie.website/changelog/?software=client&format=html

--------------------------
This version is released in combo with a new server called Castor (Belgium) that supports IPv6, tls-crypt modes and other features.
For more information about the IPv6 experimental phase, read the thread IPv6 support - Experimental phase
 
Note: please make sure you don't have IPv6 disabled on your OS before the tests (at OS level or at network adapter level). Improved notification will be implemented in the next release.
 

Please talk in this thread only about Eddie 2.14beta NOT related to IPv6 or tls-crypt support. Rely on IPv6 support - Experimental phase for issues related to Castor.

--------------------------
 
Eddie is free and open source software released under GPLv3. GitHub repository https://github.com/AirVPN/airvpn-client

Do not hesitate to write in this thread if you decide to test Eddie 2.14beta and you find some glitch or bug.

Kind regards & datalove

Setup: Arch Linux / Xfce 4.12 / Eddie 2.14beta (portable variant)

I can't get the tray icon to show up. "Show Tray Icon" and "Minimize in Tray" are checked in preferences.

"System notifications" aren't working either, at least I'm not getting any at all when enabling or disabling network lock or during the different connection steps, like on MS Windows. "xfce4-notifyd" package is installed and notifications are working just fine for other software.

 

Edit: I also installed "notify-osd" package to see whether it would make system notifications work.
 

$ notify-send blablabla_test_whatever
 

 

  works fine, I'm getting the notification on the desktop. But Eddie still doesn't display any notification, even after a reboot.

"Start minimized" feature work fine, but Eddie still appears in the Window Buttons applet, not in system tray.

 

Rebooting doesn't make any difference.

 

"Down / Up speeds / Server_name (Country) - IP" are now longer showing up in the title bar, is there a way to get them back? I can't find any option to do so in preferences.

I also noticed that the pop-up warning about IPv6 detected says that we can "re-enable IPV6 in Preferences -> Advanced -> IPv6", which is no longer the case. All settings related to IPv6 are now in "Networking" tab. However, I'm still getting the pop-up prior to connect to a server although I set "Layer IPv6" to "Block" and "IP Protocol used for connection" to "IPv4 only".

 

Edit 2: Nevermind, I rebooted again and I'm no longer getting the warning about IPv6.

 

Connection to servers works just fine so far, no issue.

When I attempt to start a connection I get this error:
 

W 2018.01.31 18:05:51 - Windows WFP, Add rule failed: Interface ID $ID unknown or disabled for the layer.:<rule name="Dns - Allow port 53 on TAP" layer="ale_auth_connect_v6" action="permit" weight="2000"><if field="ip_remote_port" match="equal" port="53" /><if field="ip_local_interface" match="equal" interface="$ID}" /></rule>
 
 
EDIT: Happens when you have ipv6 disabled in tap adapter properties.

The macOS app is not signed by a developer signature, it should be signed to protect against malicious impersonating apps.

Yes, up and running on El Capitan here, too. No problems with PF Firewall so far, which was causing me problems on the previous version. Looks okay on ipleak.

There is an error when installing using the RPM package under Fedora 27.

 Problem: conflicting requests
  - nothing provides libappindicator1 needed by airvpn-2.14.0-0.x86_64

This is solved of course by using only the OpenVPN configuration file or by using the portable version of the Eddie client. Similar problem described here with another application.

Good, thanks to you to confirm that.

Absolutely. An issue with deployment. Fixed, please re-download. Thx.

Couple of things on my Mac El Capitan:

 

1/ Can't quit Eddie. When I tried to quit Eddie the server page closed, but the icon in the dock shows me still connected. I tried to force quit but no joy there. I then tried to restart Mac, but again nothing happens. Then I tried shutting down Mac, but again nothing. In the end I had to switch off power to Mac and then restart - this finally allowed Eddie to quit. This has now happened three times, and I can't think what I'm doing wrong. As soon as I try to quit Eddie seems to be locking my system in some way.

 

2/ At the moment I'm connected, but on the Overview page where it says download and upload the numbers aren't changing - both download and upload read 14322kb/s. However, I am still able to connect to websites.

Have not tried to quit Eddie yet, but can confirm, both upload and download read 14322kb/s and are not changing. Also able to connect to websites.

Fixed, only a UI bug. Please re-download.

I can't reproduce this issue on High Sierra yet. Anyone else have this issue?

Thanks, Clodo. Downloads and Uploads now showing correctly after re-download.

 

Obviously, to install new download I had to quit old download, and once again I couldn't completely quit. It seems to be caught in a state where Eddie stops functioning and fully quitting. I tried to remove previous download from system but it wouldn't allow because it still thinks it's connected, same thing if I try to move it to trash. Normally on a Mac when trying to force quit from an app it gives a warning that app isn't functioning correctly, but it doesn't even give that warning in this case. Eventually I had to switch off power to Mac and then restart, and this finally allows Eddie to totally quit. Perhaps it is an issue with El Capitan.

Originally had 2.14 beta running on El Capitan, but then redownloaded as Stookie suggested to fix the "download and upload read 14322kb/s" problem. Quit Eddie (no problem doing that as suggested by someone else). Reinstalled 2.14 and restarted Eddie. Unfortunately, even after a reboot, it kept getting stuck on "Checking Route IPV4" and would not connect to any server. I decided to revert to 2.13.6 for now and that connected no problem. Hmmm .... except I just double checked version after reinstalling 2.13.6 and it shows V.2.14. Will have to examine further?????

So to make sure I was still running 2.14, as my log showed, and despite having reinstalled 2.13.6, I rebooted. Eddie started and connected no problem and is still showing 2.14 as the version. Not sure how all that is possible, but it's working now, so I'm not messing with it any more!

So after finally getting 2.14 running on my iMac with El Capitan, I decided to install 2.14 on my Macbook Pro running Sierra. No problems. Eddie loaded and connected right away. However, (and I had this same problem with 2.13.6) right after Eddie loaded on my laptop, Eddie disconnected on my iMac and then reconnected. No idea why this happens. Here are the logs from my iMac:

madrat, when I downloaded 2.14 for the first time I still had 2.12 and 2.13 on my system, and when I opened 2.14 for the first time it was showing up as 2.12 for some reason. I then removed all three versions and reinstalled 2.14, and it now shows up as 2.14.

 

If you can quit out of Eddie 2.14 with no problem, then it sounds as if it's something to do with my Mac. I've tried to attach a jpeg to show what it looks like after I try to quit. At this point the app is disconnected, but the little dot shows that it hasn't fully quit. When it's like this, no other apps can work, and I can't force quit, go to sleep, or even shut down the system unless I switch off the power. For some reason it's freezing my system.

 

Usually I leave Eddie connected, but because of disconnecting problems with 2.12 and PF Firewall errors with 2.13 in recent months, I have got used to having to quit Eddie in order to get it working again. Obviously, I will try and reduce the times I have to disconnect to 2.14.

 

Apart from the quit problem, it seems to be running okay at this point.

I have downloaded the new version and I am still having issues connecting. I am on a mac and have downloaded the new high sierra 10.13.3 update and it has now stuffed up everything. Does anyone know how I can get air vpn working with this new update?


well I have downloaded the new version and I am still having issues getting connected - SO ANNOYING!!

I have deleted all old versions of eddie and rebooted the machine and still its not connecting. wifi connection is good. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled this new 2.14 version and still not connecting. I'm about ready to give up.

ARRGGGHHH!!!

Just a suggestion. Try rebooting, if you have not already done so, to see if that helps. 2.14 update worked fine on my MacBook Pro running Sierra, but As you can see in my earlier post, I had problems on El Capitan. How that all got solved, I have no idea whatsoever. A quick question for those in the know. When you revert to an older version of Eddie, do you first have to uninstall the newer version before you install the older version? I ask, because I reinstalled 2.13.6 over 2.14 I still ended up with 2.14. Fortunately, after that, everything worked fine, so I let it be. And kittymcaff, try copying and pasting your log if possible as some people can actually read them and may be able to help you further.
