Release torguard-v0.3.70, 2017-07-28

====================================
 
* All platforms: Seamless Reconnect
 
 The new Seamless Reconnect option should avoid leaks
  while reconnecting
 
* All platforms: Bug fix: HMAC hidden after OpenConnect was used
 
 The HMAC widget in the Status screen should be visible
  only when OpenVPN is used, and hidden with OpenConnect.
  After using OpenConnect, if the user went back to OpenVPN,
  the HMAC widget was still hidden. The bug is fixed with
  this patch.
 
* All platforms: Check the existence of the default route
 
 The existence of the default route in the routing table is
  a mandatory condition to let the VPN start a connection.
  Now TorGuard will wait indefinitely till a default route is present.
  A warning message let the user know that TorGuard is waiting
  for a default route.
  This new test fixes issues in cases when enabling the interfaces
  that contains the default route take some seconds.
  This check can not be disabled and it is independent of the option
  "Enable disabled interface before connecting".
 
* All platforms: Confusing Fatal Error Message
 
 The VPN fatal error message window had title "OpenVPN"
  while it was used also for "OpenConnect". The title of
  the window is now changed into a more generic "VPN Fatal Error"
 
* All platforms: Bug fix: OpenConnect sometimes could not reconnect
 
 OpenConnect was not able to reconnect if InternetKillSwitch
  option was enable. The bug is fixed with this release.
 
* All platforms: ShadowSocks configuration file error.
 
 Some users informed about an error when TorGuard opens
  the configuration file of ShadowSocks. The result is
  that in that case ShadowSocks was not able to start.
  The bug was not reproducible in our platforms.
  More log is added in this patch to better understand
  the error if it happens again.
 
* Windows: Check Service Pack 1 on Windows 7
 
 The Service Pack 1 in Windows 7 contains mandatory
  libraries for the correct running of the System.
  In particular the Service Pack 1 is needed in order to
  install some important Windows Updates as well as
  to install the VC Redistributable. In particular,
  the VC Redistributable is included in TorGuard installer and
  without it TorGuard can not run.
  Now the installer checks if the running OS is
  Windows 7 without SP1 and in that case advises the user to
  install the correct Windows Update
 
* Windows: TrayIcon tooltip information reformatted
 
 In Windows the tooltips have a maximum size of 128 characters.
  Due to this, in the TrayIcon tooltip, when the country name
  or the city name of the connected server were too long, the last
  line (Remote IP) was truncated. This patch uses the Alpha Code of
  the country instead of the country name to save characters.
 
* Windows: Change vpnc-script implementation
 
 The vpnc-script was an external script used by OpenConnect.
  Since some users experimented problems while executing it,
  now we integrated its job inside TorGuard itself.
  In Windows, the vpnc-script.js is not used anymore.
 
* Windows and MacOSX: New option "Connect" added to the TrayIcon
 
 The TrayIcon has now a new option "Connect" that will connect directly
  to the default server (i.e. the last chosen one)
 
* Linux and MacOSX: Check if the disabled interfaces are enabled
                    again before connecting
 
 When the user wants to enable the previously disabled interfaces,
  TorGuard will check that they are indeed enabled before trying to connect.
  This option was already implemented in Windows and now it has been added
  to Linux and MacOSX
 
* Linux and Windows: Bug fix: OpenConnect password verification
 
 In the last version passwords with the "\"" character
  failed when connecting to OpenConnect. The bug is fixed
  with this patch
 
* Linux: warning if IP command is not found in /bin nor in /sbin
 
 If the IP command is not available, or it is not in the standard
  location (i.e. /bin/ip or /sbin/ip), TorGuard will not be able
  to start the connection. In this case, send a warning message
 
* MacOSX: Hide Icon from Dock option
 
 It is now possible to hide the Dock Icon on MacOSX,
  selecting the "Hide Icon from Dock" option from
  the Settings widget.
 
* MacOSX: Disabled the "Minimize to tray" option
 
 Bug description: even with the option checked,
  TorGuard was minimized to the taskbar near the dock.
  Furthermore, if TorGuard was reopened from the taskbar
  (and not from the tray icon),  a "ghost" window appears.
  The "Minimize to tray" option is now disabled until
  a solution is found.
 
* MacOSX: Set TorGuard window on top when showing it after hide
 
 When a user hid TorGuard from the trayicon and then showed it again,
  TorGuard was reopened behind other windows opened after it. In this patch,
  when the user click on "show" in the trayicon menu, TorGuard is brought
  to front.
 
Known issue:
 
* MacOSX: passwords with "\"" do not work
 
 A bug in MacOSX does not let the user to insert the "\""
  character when he is writing a password. The password
  works if the character is "copy-pasted" in the field.

Has anybody else had an issue of it not disconnecting when clicking the disconnect button where it just does nothing so that you have to exit the client to close it down. I have noticed this behaviour in the past on other builds and I always use very clean fresh windows 10 installation with no potential software conflicts. The only third party software installed is Nivdia drivers for the GTX 980 Ti so if anybody has any similar issues then please share here or contact support as I'm trying to find out if it's a reproducible issue or just a problem with my system alone

What happens if you start torguard from the terminal with "/opt/torguard/bin/torguard-wrapper" does it work? without the sudo.

 

Can you also try just try "torguard" (without sudo) and report back thanks

 

This script, when the user is not a super user will check for one of this programs: gksudo, kdesudo or pkexec. Maybe they are all missing? i am just guessing...

Hello Avatar

 

We use a custom version of openvpn - the latest build is based off the last version of the 2.3 branch - 2.4 will come as soon as we are done with testing - we would then upgrade the network and switch over.

Can you please specifiy seamless reconnect? If I do a manual disconnect, my IP is exposed. I like to have an option which makes sure that not a bit of traffic is going outside while TorGuard is running. As soon as I close Torguard I like to have back my normal connection. 

OS: Win 10 x64

 

edit:

Why can't I see P2P servers in the software? 

My suggestion:

In the server overview add another filter for P2P servers and make a symbol besides the servername for p2p servers (you already did this for stealth servers).

 

edit2:

your chat support told me that the adblocker can not be deactivated? So you think its a good idea to manipulate users internet traffic without letting them decide? This is not very nice and this has nothing to do with net neutrality

Seamless reconnect isn’t a kill switch, we only use it on "reconnect" not "disconnect" - so basically it will prevent leaks while reconnecting such as when switching networks or waking from sleep etc

 

You can use such servers within the client - it’s not defined whats allowed and whats not allowed - you can see that here >> https://torguard.net/tgconf.php?action=vpn-servers

 

We will look to add some indicator.

 

The Ad blocker was DNS based and optional when using our standard resolvers from our specs page https://torguard.net/tgspec.php- this was disabled as another solution is in the works as we speak - it was never mandatory, the optional DNS was your choice to use or not.
