I use Windows 10 Pro and every time I connect using Eddie I saw the following "toast" warning:


ipv6 is disabled at OS level.JPG


The Wi-Fi properties had IPv6 enabled:

... so I was puzzled why I am getting this warning repeatedly.

According to the following reference I had 0xff set in ...\Tcpip6\Parameters\DisabledComponents:


Initially I tried 0xfe, and after a reboot the warning was still there when Eddie connects to a server. I then set 0x20 (as recommended by Microsoft) and now the warning no longer appears. Please be aware that changes to the registry need to be done with great care and I advise a manual key backup as well as creating a System Restore Point. You are responsible for all eventualities.

If the Eddie log tells you that it disabled IPv6 prior to connecting then this behavior shouldn't surprise you and manual correction is not needed.

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.

~ Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. ~

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 ;)
