    Default OpenVPN client 2.1_RC20

    So here it is the update...
    This one is UNSUPPORTED until Untangle Dev team implements it.

    If you have a 6.2 or older system you need to download http://www.fakenews.se/untangle/nsis.rar and unrar it then WinSCP the files to "/usr/share/nsis/"

    Untangle 7.0 Systems or if you have updated to RC18 or 19 can just download http://fakenews.se/untangle/installerRC20.rar

    Installation procedure is as my other threads for RC18 and 19.
    Unrar the downloaded file and WinSCP to "/usr/share/untangle/openvpn/"
    Overwrite the existing files.

    Other changes then what the RC20 had with it is to the "INSTALL-win32.txt"
    it will auto start after the installation and it reads.

    IMPORTANT NOTE FOR VISTA USERS

    Note that on Windows Vista, you will need to run the OpenVPN
    GUI with administrator privileges, so that it can add routes
    to the routing table that are pulled from the OpenVPN server.
    You can do this by right-clicking on the OpenVPN GUI
    desktop icon, and selecting "Run as administrator".

    GENERAL QUICKSTART FOR WINDOWS

    The OpenVPN Client requires a configuration file
    and key/certificate files. You should obtain
    these and save them to \Program Files\OpenVPN\config.

    To start OpenVPN, first run the OpenVPN GUI by double
    clicking on the desktop icon or start menu icon.

    The OpenVPN GUI is a system-tray applet, so an icon for the
    GUI will appear in the lower-right corner of the screen.
    Right click on the system tray icon, and a menu should appear
    showing the names of your OpenVPN configuration files, and
    giving you the option to connect.

    I wonder how many betas and release candidates are necessary before they feel comfortable with their code...

    Shit.. i was a sleep and just woke up.
    I did forget to remove the "!define MUI_FINISHPAGE_SHOWREADME_NOTCHECKED" line
    So it will default show the "INSTALL-win32.txt" file.

    I have now corrected that..
    But it seams that the "Enter strokes" in the txt file becomes fubar..
    will look at it tomorrow.. right now i have bin awake for 23 H so the code is floating

    and @ mdh i guess never :P

    i am also thinking of adding a admin check in the start of the setup like the one openvpn have in its.

    Code:
    # Verify that user has admin privs
      UserInfo::GetName
      IfErrors ok
      Pop $R0
      UserInfo::GetAccountType
      Pop $R1
      StrCmp $R1 "Admin" ok
        Messagebox MB_OK "Administrator privileges required to install ${PRODUCT_NAME} [$R0/$R1]"
        Abort
      ok:
    Edit:
    Now added admin check

    hmmm... thinking of changing the the admin check so it only dose it on a vista system.

    Code:
    !ifdef CHECK_WINDOWS_VERSION
    # Check windows version
      Call GetWindowsVersion
      Pop $1
      StrCmp $1 "2000" ok
      StrCmp $1 "XP" ok
      StrCmp $1 "2003" ok
      StrCmp $1 "VISTA" admin
      StrCmp $1 "7" admin
    
      Messagebox MB_OK "Sorry, ${PRODUCT_NAME} does not currently support Windows $1"
      Abort
    
    admin:
      UserInfo::GetName
      IfErrors ok
      Pop $R0
      UserInfo::GetAccountType
      Pop $R1
      StrCmp $R1 "Admin" ok
        Messagebox MB_OK "Administrator privileges required to install ${PRODUCT_NAME} [$R0/$R1]"
        Abort
    ok:
    What do you guy think?
    But we would need to add the get windows version nsi script. http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Get_Windows_version

    Ok..I'm stuck.

    I've updated VPN files on my Untangle 6.0.2 box to RC19 and then to RC20.

    I've followed the instructions here, using WinSCP to move the files over to Untangle.

    Now, any new VPN clients I create will not generate a windows installer file from the Windows Client download link. I get the "files are no longer available" error.

    It's as if the nsis script isn't generating the windows executable.

    Any ideas on what I could check next?

    Hi,
    Can you download the Client from the WebGui? (Not send it through a email)

    Webfool...

    No, I cannot. Clicking on the link "Click here to download a key for Windows Clients", leads me to the "Files are no longer available" page.

    When I take a look in /usr/share/untangle/conf/openvpn/client-packages, the conf, ovpn, and zip files are there; just no setup-username.exe files.
