Is there a way to do that? It works great but if i accidently close it, im exposed.


For me it would be perfect to keep the iptable rules even when off.

When you close Eddie, a modal dialog window asks you if you're sure you want to exit. Exiting will disable NetLock as per design.

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.

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 ;)

Use a firewall.

I am a little late to the party on this thread.  I decided to post since I went through the same questions as the OP, although for me it was years ago.  As mentioned by giganerd and others, the Eddie design will return your computer to the connectivity state it was in before it was mounted.  IF you have an open connection when Eddie exits/closes it will return the iptable to open as it was.  However; on my systems its just the opposite.  I use UFW (gui frontend for IPtables) and my computers are completely blocked from all incoming, outgoing, routed, etc....  When I mount my computer it will NOT get connected to anything online until I start Eddie.  Eddie will temporarily save and move my iptables and establish the rules you have setup in the client (you can mostly use the generic Eddie settings or establish some of your own manually within the client.  Then when you Exit Eddie it will write back your original iptables (firewall) and the computer as in my case is locked to connectivity online.  This works flawlessly.  Another factor I enjoy about this is that my family MUST use Eddie before they can go online and ever expose my raw IP to the world.  They have no choice and its so easy.
