Release torguard-v4.4.1, 2021-02-11
===================================

- All platforms: New QML GUI is available. The new GUI can be enabled from the Settings.
                 Command line options "--enable-qml" and "--disable-qml" are also available.
- All platforms: warning about legacy options "at application start" and "while establishing VPN connection" when setting static DNS.
                 The previous options are obsolete and will be removed in the near future. We suggest to set them to "None"
                 and use only the "when VPN is connected" option.
- All platforms: DNS at "when VPN is connected" stage can not be set to "None" anymore.
                 The old "None" option could lead to wrong configurations without DNS, letting the user have a "no connectivity" expierence.
                 If previously "None" was set, we will revert to the default value "Pushed DNS".
- MacOS: Accessibility warning for MacOS 10.16 and above.
          TorGuard requires accessibility permission on 10.16 and above.
          Accessibility permission are required due to the fact that on newer MacOS, the application can only
          control others applications if they have accessibility permissions. TorGuard controls OpenVpn, OpenConnect
          and WireGuard processes, TorGuard does not control any system or other applications.
- MacOS: Abort installation if TorGuard is running.
- Linux: Abort installation/uninstallation if TorGuard is running.
- Linux: new "Block outside DNS" option is available in Linux.
         This option could prevent DNS leak in special configurations.
- Linux: new "DNS Manager" option. The possible choices are:
         - "/etc/resolv.conf" (the default and the one used until now)
         -  "systemd-resolved"

Remember: 

MAC OSX system and preferences > Security and privacy > privacy > Accessibility, if so click the lock icon to unlock editing then you can click the + icon to add Torguard app.

I was also sort of curious about more information about the new QML GUI....?? as there seems to be almost no information about it. I googled it and i did some reading but what i don't understand is why was it added? is it better or worse then the normal GUI why would i use one over the other basically what's the point of it? Some more information on it would be nice. 

I enabled it for awhile and tried it out and it seems basically almost exactly the same, i did however notice a small hickup with the new QML GUI* however, when enabled it sets off my NVIDIA program related to my Graphics card with a notification letting me know a game is launching in fullscreen and it adds an overlay onto my torguard application showing the frames per second in the corner of the torguard app... lol

In my Nvidia settings i obviously have the frames per second overlay enabled so it shows my FPS in games but i don't think it should be activating the FPS overlay for the torguard application that seems not intended i would think.

I hate this

why is no one talking about WireGuard as a new addition to this version?

 

Also, documentation on new features would be nice. Super difficult to figure out the new technology without documentation.

I experienced a frozen TG client issue with this update. If anyone else experiences the same, you can do this to fix it:

Edit the torguard client configuration file:

~/.config/VPNetworkLLC/TorGuard.conf

 

Search for "dns-manager-preference", set it to "linux_system_d" and start the client again.

I am using dnsmasq and dnscrypt services on my machine, so it is possible that the problem occurred because of my configuration. It was working fine before with /etc/resolv.conf option but not anymore for me.

I have not faced any other issue after fixing the configuration.

Can you tell me if when the torguard connection goes down, the connection disconnects alone or remains connected? I ask this because if I disconnect the cable from the internet the torguard remains connected as if it were receiving internet and does not disconnect like many vpns. Thanks TOM.

Hello, it depends what you define/understand as goes down, but it is always good idea to read official release info/documentation, like this, which I believe explains exactly your question.

Quote

Any secure protocol require some state to be kept, so there is an initial very simple handshake that establishes symmetric keys to be used for data transfer. This handshake occurs every few minutes, in order to provide rotating keys for perfect forward secrecy. It is done based on time, and not based on the contents of prior packets, because it is designed to deal gracefully with packet loss. There is a clever pulse mechanism to ensure that the latest keys and handshakes are up to date, renegotiating when needed, by automatically detecting when handshakes are out of date. It uses a separate packet queue per host, so that it can minimize packet loss during handshakes while providing steady performance for all clients.

In other words, you bring the device up, and everything else is handled for you automatically. You don't need to worry about asking it to reconnect or disconnect or reinitialize, or anything of that nature.

hope it helps

EDIT: for some reason I assumed you asked about wireguard, for other protocols offered by torguard client, above is not the case.

The gui is not verifying connection to the servers. I have the program on my desktop with version 4.1.2 and it has no issues with verifying the connection, but on my laptop with 4.4.1 it will not verify any connections. Is there an issue with this update or is the problem on my side.

I too cannot connect with client version 4.4.1 client hasn't been working for a while now, about to drop the service for another vendor I guess. only wireguard works but is very slow, so not really a solution.

Hello, there are no reported issues with such problem so far, the verifying status may not verify for a number of reasons, I would suggest first clear all caches and reload the app.

Please try the following:

1) Go to more settings --> general tab --> click restore defaults
2) Go to more settings --> general tab --> click Refresh next to Refresh Server List
3) Go to more settings --> network tab --> click clean cache and refresh cache in that order
4) Reinstall the latest build https://torguard.net/downloads.php and retest please (if you haven't already).

Let me know how you go. Thanks
