OpenFortiGUI 0.6.2 – KRunner support

OpenFortiGUI 0.6.2 is out!

The biggest news is there is now support for the KRunner plugin. Just install “openfortigui-runner” from our Repo to try out. Then start KRunner and try to type one of your defined VPN-Profiles. After selecting your VPN profile via KRunner it will automatically start to connect the VPN and also starts OpenFortiGUI if necessary.

Also DNS resolving was reworked. If you had problems with DNS resolving please try out this release.

You can find the download and details on the project page.

OpenFortiGUI 0.6.1 – Ubuntu 18.04 support

New release, new Distro support. : )

Ubuntu 18.04 packages are now available for download and via our apt repo apt.iteas.at

Also with version 0.6.1 there comes support for catalan language thanks to github member wagafo, thanks alot. There are also alot of bugfixes provided (see git history) and the usual update to the latest openfortivpn stack.

OpenFortiGUI 0.5.0 beta with GNOME-Keyring/KWallet integration

New beta release with new security feature.

You can now enable that your AES-keys are stored by your OS password manager (GNOME-Keyring, KWallet). This means your AES-keys are no longer stored unencrypted on your disk.

You can enable it via system preferences or setup wizard. This feature is optional.

Otherwise this version is safe to use. Only this new features is marked as beta.

Why i think its beta? While its working good in an KDE-Environment with KWallet, on Ubuntu or Gnome with GNOME-Keyring there is some strange behavior. For example on my test machine there are no tray menu entries shown after activating this feature.

Please test and report bugs or ways to solve them.

OpenFortiGUI 0.3.3 with working remote VPN-DNS

New release with new features and fixes.

Version 0.3.3 brings working remote VPN-DNS and an option to define a realm.

Setting up DNS by remote Gateway was already a requested feature. This is working now. If you enable “Set DNS” in your VPN-Profile, any offered DNS-Servers by the VPN-Gateway are populated into your resolv.conf.

There is also an extra field now to enter your VPN-realm if required.

The core openfortivpn source was also updated now to latest upstream release.

More details can be found on the project-page. Have fun again.

OpenFortiGUI 0.3.0 with OTP-Auth

New release again and so another new feature. : )

Version 0.3.0 brings the most requested feature “OTP-Authentication”.

OpenFortiGUI implements this by scanning the output of openfortivpn for special “OTP-keywords” to detect an OTP-Auth request. Then it prompts the user for the OTP-Token and redirects it do openfortivpn.

The advantage of this method is that there is no modification of the original openfortivpn source required. It was successfully tested with a Fortigate 50E.

Please give it a try and leave feedback.

More details can be found on the project-page. Have fun.
