The u+s method + reboot is it.

Odd, I just did the u+s method and it worked fine. Can anyone else confirm this is an issue?

"To allow non-root users to use NetExtender, run chmod -v u+s /usr/sbin/pppd" doesn't seem to hold true right now for me- netExtenderGui still returned "pppd: must be root to run pppd, since it is not setuid-root" after logging in.

To add normal normal users for execute I had to:
# chown root /usr/sbin/pppd
# chmod 4755 /usr/sbin/pppd

Then I was able to use NetExtender without root.

Thanks for the feedback, I'll look into this. It may take a week though as I'm busy with a business deadline right now.

@crypdic A simpler solution:

Does not work out of the box for me. I had to make some symbolic links for ppp to work, otherwise I log in but get stuck opening the tunnel. These links should be automatically created if they don't exist IMO.

Oops I didn't notice the two line DLAGENTS, and I must have been tired and screwed up the SHA. I've fixed it and tested a remove/install of netextender through pacaur successfully. Thanks for your help. Let me know if you have any issues. We are now on 8.6.801.

This is my first AUR package I've tried maintaining (recently took it over from the prior maintainer who went MIA). Thanks for your patience.

A quick debug suggests:
1. You cannot split the DLAGENTS on two lines
2. sha256sums_x86_64 should be 7c6532bcc946655246c179e54a983b4215a3c7bc2dcdc727b4ba77a84051b77c - unless I've been comprimised or mitm'd :)

I've made the changes, although it has new SHA sums. I've been getting some download errors though. Issue with the DLAGENTS? liviucmg, if you have any ideas let me know. Or, if you or someone else wishes to be a co-maintainer I can add you, no problem.

Just to recap, we need the URLs and checksums changed, but you also need a custom User-agent, otherwise they started to block automated downloads. These lines work for me:

DLAGENTS=("https::/usr/bin/curl -A 'Mozilla' -fLC - --retry 3 --retry-delay 3 -o %o %u")
