Project Release Information
This release adds L2TP and smartcard support as the most important new features. It adds also other features and fixes bugs in VPNC, racoon, IPSec, and OpenVPN. The tool detection now works as expected.
The default route at cisco connection and the
resolv.conf are now correctly restored, and the
openvpn tunnel device type is now shown correctly.
The openvpn configuration file reader now removes
comments from the read lines. The pcf import now
works as expected. For security reasons, the
configuration file for vpnc is now sent via stdin.
A crash at rename was fixed too.
KVpnc is a KDE frontend for various VPN clients. It supports Cisco VPN (vpnc, vpnclient (a proprietary client from Cisco)), IPSec (FreeS/WAN, Openswan, strongSwan, racoon), PPTP (pptpclient), OpenVPN, L2TP over IPSec (l2tpd, xl2ltpd, openl2tp) (usable with FreeS/WAN, Openswan, strongSwan, and racoon), Vtun, and OpenSSH. Smartcards will be supported within OpenVPN and strongSwan. vpnc is a replacement for the Cisco VPN client, and is used as a client for the Cisco3000 VPN Concentrator. FreeS/WAN, Openswan, and strongSwan are IPSec clients for Linux 2.4.x/2.6.x, and racoon is an IPSec client for Linux 2.6.x and *BSD. l2tpd, xl2tpd, and openl2tp are Linux L2TP VPN clients/servers.
