Linux VPN client (beta)

In this page we will publish up to date info about our new beta VPN app for Linux.

UPDATES:

13/10/18: added new version v1.2
10/06/18: added stand-alone package (no installation required)
08/06/18: kill switch script improvements
30/06/18: initial beta client released

IMPORTANT NOTES:

- the app is in beta stage and is currently available for Debian based distros only, tested with latest Debian, Mint, Ubuntu, CentOS distros with popular window managers. No other distros have been tested. 

- "net-tools" package is a pre-requisite, on Debian-based distros install it by running 'sudo apt-get install net-tools -y', on CentOS: 'yum install net-tools'
- on older versions (for instance Ubuntu < 18.04), also install the package "gksu". 

- the VPN client must be started from terminal only, as root. Example (for .deb package) on most distributions: "sudo /usr/local/vpn.ac/bin/run.sh"
- if it fails to get the list of servers showing a SSL error, start it by running: "pkexec env DISPLAY=$DISPLAY XAUTHORITY=$XAUTHORITY /usr/local/vpn.ac/bin/run.sh"
- If the stand-alone package is used, start it from vpn.ac/bin/ subfolder. Closing the terminal after starting the VPN app shouldn't cause the app to exit.

Download: deb file / stand-alone archive
