VirtualHere server not starting on Arch Linux

I have tried using VirtualHere (vhusbdx86_64) server on 64-bit Arch Linux but when I try to launch it nothing happens. I've made sure I gave the program executable permission and ran it via sudo. I'm using Arch's stock kernel 3.18.5 and the Cinnamon desktop environement if that matters at all. I will point out that the program does create the config file the first time the program is ran but that's all it does.

This is what happens:

[vince@arch Downloads]$ sudo ./vhusbdx86_64
[sudo] password for vince:
[vince@arch Downloads]$

As you can see nothing...

Whereas if I try running this program from Debian 7 / SteamOS, everything works fine and I get this message:

VirtualHere USB Server is running...press ^C to stop

Any idea why this is happening and how to fix it?

Take a look in syslog and it

Take a look in syslog and it should show any errors encountered. Post them here

Error log

Here's some more info...I just took a look at my system logs via "journalctl --system" and saw this:

Fedora - same issue?

Hi,
I installed Fedora workstation and I looked at the journalctl which has the exactly the same log errors as the arch log above. What do I need to do to fix this so the server runs? I am running 2.0.7 build 10 Feb 2015 x64.

Michael
OK download again, i fixed it

OK download again, i fixed it for fedora

Same issue on Arch ARM running on Acer CB5-311 Chromebook

I tried all possible builds for ARM, it is always the same result. Starts, writes config file and shutdowns. Logs says only:
LOG_INFO >>> Starting VirtualHere USB Server v3.0.5 (Built: Sep 11 2016, 16:39:12)<<<
LOG_INFO Using configuration /home/alarm/Downloads/config.ini
LOG_INFO >>> Shutdown <<<

I am using Arch ARM with Linux kernel 3.10.18, armv7l. What could be wrong?

Seems to be related to VPN, works if started before VPN

So if I start the server before VPN (PPTP) it works. If I try to start it after the VPN is established, it does not work.

.

Send me the output of ls /sys/class/net its probably trying to find a network adapter to bind to

blaz.malnersic@...
Here is the output of ls /sys/class/net

ls /sys/class/net
- before PPTP VPN, only WiFi
lo, mlan0
- VirtualHere Client works
- after PPTP VPN
lo, mlan0, ppp0
- Virtual Here Client shutdowns immediately
