You might be aware of the popular project, DWS. https://github.com/Nummer/Destroy-Windows-10-Spying/releases

 

I came across some port forwarding issues on my host machine and could not figure out why my ports were not forwarding, however, I did suspect DWS had something to do with it.

 

https://github.com/Nummer/Destroy-Windows-10-Spying/blob/80d236b8524ac3d3292c3a77f0fe5f24e8e253db/DWS/MainWindow.xaml.cs#L335

 

This will mess up your port forwarding on your VPN client. The fix is to either reset your firewall rules or just disable Windows Firewall or just don't run DWS at all.

 

Conclusion

 

DWS conflicts with AirVPN.

 

I hope this helps anyone!

Thank you. I didn't know about DWS and like it and i want to use it. But, If i use it and reset my firewall rules and "re-enable" the network lock option in Eddie, Does this fix the conflict between the two apps?

Mad_Max, AirVPN works anyway, you can connect to AirVPN nodes fine. A problem only arises if you're using forwarded ports. Disable windows firewall entirely and you should be fine.
