Where can we download latest compiled OpenVPN GUI client?

Post by aboka » Thu Sep 03, 2020 1:32 pm

hi, hv been using OpenVPN on and off for many years, and recently need to install them again but cant find the client installer. All we could find is OpenVPN Connect, but we would like to have the 'classic' OpenVPN GUI. Found its page on Github, but there is no compiled version for Windows. All we could download is the source code(in Visual C?)

Please advice on where we could download them, or the simplest ways we could compile the code ourself. Thank you very much.


p/s - think i got it download. but wonder why the EXE version a lot diff from the source code version or my existing OpenVPN GUI

Source code downloaded: openvpn-gui-11.17.0.0
Existing OpenVPN GUI client - 11.15.0.0
the one just download and installed - OpenVPN-2.5-beta3-I602-amd64.msi

cheers,

That is the most up to date version, until 2.5 is officially released.

hi, hv download and use the latest beta now. do you know why their version is different for their codes and the compiled version? we thought there are different since one is v2.5 the other is v11.17. Perhaps one is the installer version, the other is the real program OpenVPN version? :?

Thank you,

OpenVPN Version 2.5
OpenVPN-GUI Version 11.17

That is correct.

hi, so the one i hv download and installed(OpenVPN-2.5-beta3-I602-amd64.msi) is both server and client? if thats true, then is there a 'only client' version? i just need the client - OpenVPN GUI. thanks.

p/s - or there are actually 'one set' where the GUI provides the front-end?
