@dramm I have the same issue as IslamMu had, confirming all they had written before: Torguard won't connect with Stealth proxy or Stunnel or Openconnect options. Also Manjaro Linux. I run torguard as sudo /usr/bin/torguard - it does not connect at all without sudo.

Using Stealth proxy server results in "ss-local could not be started". This may be related to shadowsocks-libev, I guess? Perhaps it wants regular shadowsocks, not libev?

Using Port / Auth 4443 (SHA256/Stealth) gives "Could not connect to the VPN management socket. Please check your firewall settings!"

Using Stunnel option leads to "Error while starting STunnel STunnel could not be started".

Also checking the option More Settings -> General -> Auto-start on boot gives "Error enabling autostart option"


What I did:

  1. added myself to torguard and stunnel groups gpasswd -a *user* torguard, gpasswd -a *user* stunnel

  2. changed a line in /usr/share/applications/torguard.desktop file to Exec=sudo /usr/bin/torguard

  3. added a line to /etc/sudoers %torguard *myhost*=(root) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/torguard, /opt/torguard/bin/torguard


Manjaro 18.0.4

torguard 3.96.1-1

stunnel 5.55-1

shadowsocks-libev 3.3.0-1

My guess is that it is related to groups permissions. There were no mentions of torguard in my sudoers configuration. Additionally, my user profile was not a member of stunnel or torguard groups. But even after I did it, the stealth proxy options described above did not start working.

@IslamMu It works with stunnel version 5.55. What version you are on?

IslamMu commented on 2019-06-06 22:36

@dramm . hey bro, could you upgrade to latest package and fix the error we talked about before

hi, i install the package directly from the torguard page that include the binaries and its more easy to run stealth servers and run without pass (prompt for the superuser password). for that you only need to change this line in the torguard.desktop

Exec=/usr/bin/torguard to: Exec=sudo /opt/torguard/bin/torguard
And save the file, now you can run with sudo privilege and works perfectly. Please add the binaries ;D

Pd. torguard.desktop file its here: /usr/share/applications/

Glad it worked for you. The reason I don't use the binaries in the package is because I was to avoid it, by the guys in the IRC. But yeah, I will have to look into it.

dramm i un installed the package form aur and stunnel, then i installed latest package with this way: cd Downloads, ,tar -xvzf torguard-v3.95.0-amd64-arch.tar.gz ,cd torguard-v3.95.0-amd64-arch ,makepkg -s ,sudo pacman -U *.pkg.tar.xz

and its working fine, i guess stunnel is included with this package, maybe you need to test your aur package or update it. thanks for helping me <3

My father also uses manjaro and this package. I did not test with this last update though. Maybe try an older version?

Also, sometimes after system updates I need to reboot in order to make torguard work properly.

You could also try the binaries they provide for stunnel.

i used sudo torguard

but it's won't connect with stealth or stunnel or openconnect

give me this error: Could not connect to the VPN management socket. Please check your firewall settings!

and: Error while starting STunnel STunnel could not be started

btw i disable firewall but still got those errors

@dramm i did it with sudo, something is wrong.

dramm commented on 2019-05-19 17:47

Make sure you are running it with sudo.
