How to setup client under Linux?

Post by AleXSR700 » Wed Jul 15, 2020 1:35 pm

Hello everyone,
I have setup my SoftEther server on a Linux system (Raspberry Pi) and have confirmed it is working by connection through my SoftEther windows client.

Now I would like to connect from a Raspberry Pi Client (Linux) but there is no user GUI.

Is there a way to directly export all the settings from my server and import them on my Raspberry Pi? I would like to use SoftEther's own VPN connection mode and not use IPSec or L2TP etc.

Any help would be appreciated :)

Alex

Hi Alex

I have done that in my pi before

You basically have to create a init file and with that create a vpnclient service manually if you want the vpn to connect on startup

Check this guide

Hi,
I did it according to the instructions but the strange thing is, that when I connect via accountconnect pi_vpn, it connects and shows "connected". But when I then run the dhclient vpn_pi command, it switchs to "conncting " and fails to actually connect.
May I ask why there is no normal client (with a GUI) like in Windows?
