Great VPN client, Shrew Soft

Posted by Treg in Linux, Tech

… and finally I found a VPN client that suits my needs: the Shrew Soft VPNClient. This piece of software is available for both Windows and Linux. (and works on both platforms without a problem!) It connects with many manufacturers’ VPN gateways. On their support page, they tell you how to do it.

Attention, there is one little “problem” if you want to use it on recent Ubuntu installations. You have to edit the file “/etc/sysctl.d/10-network-security.conf”. Please zero the values of the configuration:


That should work.

    Just as a note, make sure to reboot your system after editing the file before the settings will take effect. (Logging out and logging back in is not sufficient.)
