Free VPN for console linux. Currently available as 'beta' version.
You can download current Linux
console version of Wippien
on the following URL:
You should uncompress (gzip -d wiplinux.tgz) and untar (tar -xvf wiplinux.tar) somewhere on your disk, and make sure both wiptun
exist and have execute privileges.
To set up linux version correctly you need to:
1. run "wiptun
" with root privileges. You can put it to background if you wish. For each client app that connects it will dump some details
for your reference. Root privileges are required in order for TUN adapter to be accessed. If you kill this process, you will no longer allow
clients to connect
2. run "wipclnt JID password
" command for each client you want to connect (if Password not provided, you will be asked to enter it from the keyboard). Client will connect to XMPP server and obtain IP address, then
it will connect to running wiptun
instance and pipe all the traffic to virtual network adapter wiptun
You can not create new users,
or add/remove contacts using Linux version - you should do all of that from "big" Wippien
You may notice transfer is a bit slow - and that is something that will need to be fixed in near future. However, at this beta stage I am interested
in any feedback you can provide of how linux version works.
Source of linux version is available in SVN. Please don't forget that you need wodVPN
in order to compile it successfully.
Currently tested on Debian Etch, Fedora 9, Fedora 8.
