I still have a wish for you. It would be nice if Eddie is made simpler and more modern. It's a bit complicated, especially for beginners, as it can lead to difficulties.

The client "Eddie", which you have to load onto the computer, does not make it better visually: Again, no improvement has been made to the user interface nor is there a different look and feel in the starting blocks.

It would be nice to refresh the client and make it easier. Since very fast, wrong settings can be made.

This is just a factual criticism, are just things that I wish :-)

 

I guess you're the type who also wants websites to 'pop' and 'flash' whatever those words mean. Eddie is pretty decent already, it's not absolutely beginner friendly, but it's mostly put in username/password, choose a server and click connect. If you're messing with the settings you should have some clue what you're doing.

 

I don't really understand what you're proposing here, if you're messing with settings you have no clue about that's not Eddie's fault.

So could any of the Mac users explain how to fix the following problem, that was pointed out to me by staff? I've done several Google searches, but just can't figure it out myself.

 

Hi, you have en0 (Ethernet) with IPv6 disabled, from your system log: {
"friendly": "Ethernet",
"id": "en0",
"name": "en0",
"description": "en0",
"type": "Ethernet",
"status": "Up",
"bytes_received": "0",
"bytes_sent": "0",
"support_ipv4": true,
"support_ipv6": false,
"ips": [
"192.168.1.65"
],
"gateways": [
"192.168.1.254"
],
"bind": true
},

Thanks so much for the info. I have very limited knowledge of this stuff, but I will be taking the info you gave me, and searching the info you provided, in order to try and learn what you are talking about. In the meantime, despite not being able to connect to IPv6, Eddie is running just fine and I have been happy with it for several years now. Great support, not only from staff, but from users as well.

I try to re-explain.

You can connect to AirVPN servers via IPv4 OR IPv6. This is controlled by the option "Settings -> Networking -> Internet protocol used for connection".
To connect via IPv6, you need to have IPv6 enabled on your network adapter, and your ISP support it (so, you need to have IPv6 connectivity WITHOUT the VPN here: http://ipv6-test.com/).
But you have also IPv6 disabled on your network adapter, so try to run in terminalnetworksetup -getinfo Ethernetand if report "IPv6: Off", try to runnetworksetup -setv6automatic Ethernetto re-enable it.

I suggest to leave "Settings -> Networking -> Internet protocol used for connection" at "IPv4, IPv6" (the default).

Unfortunately, I think the problem may be that my router does not support ipv6. This is the result from terminal:

DHCP Configuration
IP address: 192.168.1.65
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Router: 192.168.1.254
Client ID:
IPv6: Automatic
IPv6 IP address: none
IPv6 Router: none
Ethernet Address: 00:23:df:8c:a0:ae

Sign in to the router and check its address settings from your ISP. Im on Spectrum/Time Warner and they do full IPv6. You should see it all listed where it shows you the address/DNS/etc the router gets from the ISP. IPv6 is usually a separate page aside from the IPv4 DHCP stuff, at least it is in my router. It won't let me do static IPv6 though which would really help with the Mac dropping its address at random heh.

 

There used to be a setting in Eddie 2.13 that enabled/disabled IPv6. The setting was removed in 2.14, but is still in the config file. By default it was disabled as well, so it may still be set like that from back when you were using 2.13 (we didn't have IPv6 servers yet). I found this out when I began testing the 'new' gen 2 server Castor, and couldn't figure out why it wasn't working with the 2.14 beta. Eddie just won't turn it on no matter what if that setting is disabled in the config.

 

EDIT: Also, what did you run in the terminal to show you the IP info??? I know about ifconfig, but I want something simple and easy thats more like Windows IPConfig hehe. ifconfig shows me all kinds of crap I don't care about when I just wanna see my addresses!

On many routers IPv6 is disable by default for "security/ privacy reasons" even if the provider does support IPv6 (which most do nowadays, at least the big ones). Look on your provider's website for a guide how to enable/ configure IPv6. If you cannot find anything try searching the internet with keywords like "IPv6 configuration, provider name, router model...". Some providers do not really talk much about IPv6 at all, maybe you won't even find the info whether or not it (the provider) supports IPv6 or not on their website. If that's the case you will have to go even further back and start with a web search like "provider name, IPv6 support". I had to do this too for my provider.

 

You could also call their support hotline but don't be surprised if the call agent asks you whether it (IPv6) was something to eat :asd: :rofl:

As Staff recommended, I ran networksetup -getinfo Ethernet in Terminal. OK then, time to do some searching on my router and provider.

The file used to be signed with airvpn digital signature so i know it was added there by you. Now there was a change from AIR DI PAOLO BRINI (airvpn digital signature) to the developer digital signature (i assume) which none talked about.

 

Hello,

 

now it's very clear, thank you. Notifications on the issue will be sent shortly.

 

Kind regards

Been a week now. Is someone going to tell us if it was intentional or by accident?

Hello!

 

It was intentional, according to the consideration that it is more appropriate and fair to keep the original signature of the packaged binaries not programmed by Air, but as you correctly remarked this failure of communication is our failure and we will improve and learn from this mistake.

 

Kind regards

Probably going to need a lot more info in order to help you. What version of Eddie are you running? Probably best to copy and paste your log(s) if possible. From the Main Window, copy your regular log, then type [_spoiler_] (without the 2 underscores). Then paste your log. Then type [_/spoiler_] (without the 2 underscores). Repeat for the System log (red and white lifesaver icon).

Hello,

I also found a small error. If the computer reboots (Win 10 (x64) the network look does not react immediately at startup, but you have the possibility to go to the internet for a few seconds until the look works. I've noticed that several times now. First the message Network look is deactivated and then shortly afterwards Network look is activated.

It would be good if the network look took effect immediately when Windows was started, not when Windows was started.

Unknown error: -536870212 (code=-536870212)

 

Hi guys,

 

running MacOS 10.12.6 with Eddie 2.16.1. Everything went smooth so far, until I wanted to change  server after 120h. Here's the log from Eddie

Spoiler

 

Just red in madrat's post about the sys-log.. I already did a complete restart to make it work again (restarting Eddie only did nothing) -- but if it happens again I'll post the system-log here too

 

Ps. Just installed 2.16.2 - although in 'about' it still says 2.16.1

I did remove Eddie from Programs, before installing the new version - is there something else to remove for it to properly update?

HI,

 

Thanks for the new version 2.16.2.

Seems to be working well so far except for still no tray icon in Xubuntu 16.04.5 LTS x86.

Noob question:

How can I upgrade/install the new version on Linux/openSUSE Leap 15?

 

Do I have to deinstall the "old" version first with yast2 and then install the new one?

Or can I just install over the installed version?

 

I want to try the beta because of the bug with openSUSE, see here:
https://airvpn.org/topic/28866-eddie-on-opensuse-linux-leap-15-or-tumbleweed/

You can just install it over it.
The beta version also gave me the closing problem.

Note to Mac users (I ran airvpn on a mac for a year or so on top of my current system): post ifconfig output from terminal, maybe change the trailing IP #'s after the first couple ,'s just to be "safe." In linux there's something called nmcli which is meant for new users to post their device and connection stuff to forums without accidently posting something personal or compromising, but I don't know of a command like this in OSX BSD without downloading Macports or something.

 

OSX connection issues are usually something just overlooked and silly. If you aren't connecting to AirVPN you probably need to let it through OSX's two-knob firewall.

Don't use ISP leased equipment.

---

 

My question is, will jumping to 2.16b  have any effect on my access to servers or improve/decrease performance anywhere? I do not use ipv6. I am noticing that a few of my preferred servers in Vancouver have been suffering the past couple months, and I'd rather use non-Trump-era ISP controlled servers than California, Texas or Arizona. My only other choice is Toronto and that's a quite a hit to connection speeds. Hopefully I can connect to my canuck buddies again some time soon.  Runing Linux Mint 18.3 but will be on Mint 19/Manjaro rather soon.

Does 2.16.x fix the speed graph bug in 2.15.2 (windows x64) where it fails to capture upload traffic stats (at least in the graph) for exactly 5 minutes at a time? I didn't see it noticed in the change log but maybe it was covered by generic 'and other fixes'.
