#77862 Eddie Android edition

Posted by Staff on Yesterday, 08:42 PM

Is there something I can do to avoid getting that [error] OpenVPN3 KEEPALIVE_TIMEOUT: Eddie Library Session invalidated: KEEPALIVE_TIMEOUT? I don't understand what causes it.

 

Hello!

 

This error occurs when communication to server fails. A failure is assumed when none of any "ping" (inside the tunnel) is acknowledged by the other end  in a given time frame. In our current setup, a ping is sent every 10 seconds, and the timeout is 60 seconds. So if all the "pings" in that time frame are not "ponged", the party (client or server) assumes that the other party is no more there. This is strictly necessary because UDP is connectionless. What you experience is probably a real disconnection due to the fact that your device can't communicate with the server anymore.

 

You might try to test a connection in TCP. Even though TCP is less efficient than UDP (due to how OpenVPN works), it would mitigate or resolve the issue in case your ISP de-prioritizes UDP packets. Worth a try.

 

 

 
Is there any possibility that there would some point be Eddie for android which has functionalities that would take advantage of rooted phone.

 

If you have a rooted device you would be able to perform many actions on your own, for example setting iptables rules to prevent leaks. However, at this stage, Eddie will not take advantage of this fact. Plans to run in a rooted environment do not exist at the moment, essentially because we have a roadmap with more pressing steps and aims (integration with AirVPN first and foremost) but we do not rule out anything about it in the future.

 

Kind regards

Hello!

 

That's expected and intended to prevent traffic leaks. It is a consequence of this event:

23 Sep 2018 07:27:51 UTC [Error] OpenVPN3 KEEPALIVE_TIMEOUT: Eddie Library Session invalidated: KEEPALIVE_TIMEOUT

 

When you get an unrecoverable OpenVPN error, you need to reconnect OpenVPN to some server. During this time, traffic leaks would be unavoidable.

 

By catching the OpenVPN error and entering the "lock" status before it's too late, Eddie gives the user a chance to take precautions (if needed) with no time pressure to prevent leaks before trying a reconnection or deciding to un-lock. In other words, you might like to (for example) shut down programs whose traffic must not appear on the Internet as coming from your real IP address, before clicking "Disconnect" and therefore "unlocking the traffic".

 

Compare Eddie and "OpenVPN for Android" behaviors in such a case: if you get a KEEPALIVE_TIMEOUT in "OpenVPN for Android", your traffic would start to flow outside the VPN. What's worse, if the device is unattended and the reconnection attempts fail, the traffic would continue to flow indefinitely. With Eddie, this does not happen and manual intervention is required (remember that in a non-rooted, standard Android system, firewall rules can't be set). We deem it as the most appropriate behavior as a traffic leaks prevention "best effort".

 

Kind regards

Posted by Staff on 21 September 2018 - 07:04 PM

#77226 Recurring Payment Bitcoin Purchase?

Posted by Staff on 01 September 2018 - 11:03 AM

Hello,
 
I know payments past 3 days are automatically recurring once that time period is up.

 

Hello!

Exactly the contrary is true: it is not possible to have an auto-renewing three days plan in our system.
 
The only way to get an auto-renewing 1, 3, 6 or 12 months plan is picking a "PayPal susbscription" payment method when you check out. Any other payment method does not support auto-renewal plans, we're sorry.
 
Kind regards

#77031 How to send bank website traffic over regular network instead of VPN

Posted by Staff on 27 August 2018 - 09:29 AM

Every time I try to log in to my bank website over VPN it gives me issues, so I was wondering how I can exclude the bank website's traffic from going over the VPN using the eddie client?

 

 

Hello!

 

Exclude traffic to/from the bank IP addresses from the VPN tunnel. If you run Eddie you can do that in "Preferences" > "Routes".

 

Kind regards
