linux client planned?

is a linux client planned?


i'm using ubuntu and currently use which gives me an easy to use, non-leaking, always-on and open source vpn client.

unfortunately they don't support ipv6 just yet. this leaves me w/o vpn at places with DS-lite/ipv4 over NAT.


just the raw openvpn configuration files would be nice too.

and please consider open sourcing your clients, that would be a good move.

    I however forwarded your request to the persons in charge.

    Why would F-Secure Not have plans for a freedome linux client but has one for windows, a far less secure environment?

    you have an interesting logic...

    if you feel windows is a "far less secure environment", wouldnt it (with a logical mindset) make even more sense for F-Secure to create a windows client to improve it?

    I certainly do.


    And, no. No I don't. For the simple fact that it would make more sense to gravitate everyone onto Linux, champ.

    Hi Pootis,


    No change on that front, we still have no plans to release a Linux client for the moment, this may or may not change in the future.

    I wouldn't have much trust in a VPN service that requires installation of a dedicated proprietary client (spy ?). Most GNU/Linux systems handle VPN connexions out-of-the-box. So there is indeed no point in developping such a thing, but rather giving out connexion parameters.

    I'd also really love linux client.


    Now I have to use something else for now.

    I had the same situ and disappointment. Keep in mind, F-Secure andLinux both come from the same place - Helsinki, Finland. This makes me think that maybe mr Torvalds has opened his nasty mouth in a correct moment for the right perseon...

    I would vote for +1 to the linux client. It's really needed and you F-Secure cannot really be only thinking of those who use Windows.

    Thank you for all your feedback. It is forwarded to the product team. 

    There is however currently still no plan for a Linux version.

    I would be interested in a GNU/Linux client as well.

    There is still no plan for a Linux version. But I'll forward your feedback so this may be considered again in the future.

    +1 for Linux client, and by the way also ARM binaries would be nice because of just launched commercial Ubuntu tablet Smiley Wink

    I am adding my voice for a linux. Got little upset when i realized there is not Linux version of this.
    Hope you would change mind and develop that for linux too!

    I am adding my voice, too!!!!


    I believe that Linux is the future. Many people don't like Windows 10.
