Is OpenVPN Daemon related to F-Secure Freedome?

I noticed OpenVPN Daemon process running on my computer. I've used other VPN service providers in the past.

    Yes. Freedome
    uses OPENVPN protocols. I get that too and I am pretty sure it is freedome.

    You have to be sure.

    OpenVPN protocal supplied with Freedome is outdated. If I recall correctly the version is 2.3.0, the latest build being 2.3.6. I had to update OpenVPN manually, also my internet speed increased.

    Hello Musicbee,

     

    We build our own openvpn.exe, and we use the latest available at the time of our release. Therefore, the on in use should be the latest one with the latest OpenVPN patches, but you cannot tell it from the version number.

    Hi, if I understand the 2.3.0 version of f-secure is version 2.3.6 of open vpn?

    Hello EABJr,

     

    As mentionned above, Freedome for Windows uses custom OpenVPN build from master branch.

    Currently 2.3.0.0 is the version number  in master. The 2.3.6 release was made on 28th of november 2014 and we are using a snapshot from week 11 of 2015. So although it looks like we are using older version of OpenVPN, we are actually using the newer.
