openfortivpn - An open source client for Fortinet PPP+SSL VPN tunnel services
Closed, ResolvedPublic




Why should this be included in the repository:
It allows users to connect to Fortinet VPN networks. The commercial alternative is not available on a public website and the link Arch (AUR) uses was declined as a package request (T1740: FortiClient SSL-VPN).

Is it Open Source:
Yes (GPLv3)

How many users do you anticipate will use this software?
Anyone who wants to connect to a Fortinet VPN network. Fortinet is a huge company so I expect this to be pretty common.

Re-opening after a discussion on IRC. We will amend the 2-Distro rule to include Fedora to help with this in the future.

openfortivpn is packaged for Fedora, Gentoo and NixOS under the package name openfortivpn.

Not sure if it should be added here or as it's own request, but also package the NetworkManager applet to control the openfortisslvpn if Solus decides to include openfortisslvpn.

Note: openfortisslvpn compiles and works just fine under Solus.

@nevertheless, i'll give a go to try and package this as well. I've updated the package for openfortivpn which you can find here:

The process and timeline when a package will be included is unclear to me. This one has been marked to being as being added almost 4 months ago and only recently revoked due to package changes. We'll see when the dust settles in packaging land and the team can work on the backlog.

@nevertheless, I have a working eopkg for this network manager applet. It's quite a nice frontend for the tool. However Solus packaging policies prevent me from uploading this package as a patch right now.

Please refrain from submitting a patch for a package that is yet to be accepted for inclusion by a member of the Triage Team. We welcome you to politely reach out via the package request task or IRC if you deem the review of the request to be time-sensitive in nature.

Please make a package request, chase some of these package maintainers to get it accepted and I'll be happy filling the request :)
