Version 8.5.797 is available (and 8.5.796 is no longer available). One more library needs to be packaged, as well:

Updated this package to be less sketchy and work more reliably.

Hi, markbhp. A few things: I'm not maintaining this any more due to the problems I detailed below. So use this if you dare: Nobody is following security updates (not like this garbage should be trusted for any proper security, anyway).

If this is for an organization, you'll be better off either 1) asking your IT department for help, or 2) (if you're the IT dept.) ditching this for something more sane, such as openvpn.

It seems that some have been able to make this work for a Sonicwall SSL VPN connection. I have not been able to do this (my stupidity). I cannot figure out how to pass the shared secret. Can someone point me down the trail?

This package requires both pppd and ifconfig. So the packages ppp and net-tools should be required as dependencies.

Thankfully, our work has allowed me to ditch this shovelware for openvpn. So I don't need netextender any more: If someone has interest, please take the baton!

ainola commented on 2015-08-18 04:24

Nevermind! Thanks for letting me know.

ainola commented on 2015-08-18 04:06

Kindly explain why this is out of date: mysonicwall is showing 7.5.773 as the latest version. I believe the 8.x release I had found was likely a pre-release.
