SoftEther VPN Server Manager for Linux

Post by hbleier » Wed Oct 02, 2019 10:13 am

Are there any plans to make the Manager available for Linux? Preferable as a appimage so it will work on multiple distros of linux? I don't have a apple or a machine running windows. I was able to make it run under wine on ubuntu 18.04 but it is a pain to get working and it is very glitchy. A appimage or a snap package would be awesome and make it much easier to use. I refuse to run windows every time I got to setup a new VPN or make changes to an existing one. That is kinda anti open source don't you think. I manage a multi location SCADA system that is all open source and running on various versions of linux distros, I bridge the networks with SoftEther and it works great except when I got to make changes. Every time it involves setting up wine again to run this simple manager utility for a couple minutes and make my changes to the system.

I don't have the same issues as you do with windows, but it would be nice if something like that existed.

On the other hand, I can handle the most actions with VPNCMD too, from within linux.
It's is not that you HAVE to go to windows/macOS.

But, as mentioned, it would be nice to have a VPN Server Manager for Linux.
