Submitted:  Mar 28 2006

Description:

KOVpn is a simple OpenVPN GUI which is intended to fit end-user's needs. It runs without root privileges and can control the most important functions of openvpn:

* connect and disconnect
* username and password input
* private key passphrase input
* show status
* supports multiple openvpn connections
* Store username and/or passwords in kwallet
* Supports OpenVPN's management interface access control
* Simple DCOP interface (status report, connect, disconnect)
It requires some changes to your openvpn configuration file: You have to activate the management interface by adding these lines

management 127.0.0.1 11194
management-query-passwords
management-hold

The last line is optional.

You should choose localhost or 127.0.0.1 as host and a any unused port (e.g. 11194). You have to tell kovpn these host and port settings.

Please report any bug you find. It isn't well tested.

Current Translations: English, German

Binaries are available for OpenSUSE 10.3 and 11, Debian Sarge and Ubuntu/Kubuntu Hardy Heron via the OpenSUSE Build Service:

Yes I do, but I doesn't use the management interface of OpenVPN as far as I know. And that means that it needs root privileges to work.

well, I think I have to learn to use this comment function :-)
What I wanted to say is: kvpnc needs root privileges, because it doesn't use OpenVPN's management interface.

That doesn't explain why another application is needed :)
kvpnc is under GPL, patching it is allowed .

Well, you're right! It might have been better if I patched kvpnc. But there are some reasons _for me_ to write a new app:
1. I wanted to write a new one :-)
2. Patching an application is harder than writing a new one.
3. I wanted a "light" application, just for an end-user. I think kvpnc isn't such an app.
4. I think an end-user doesn't need more than kovpn provides. What do you think?
5. Keep it simple. Kvpnc is good if you have more than one VPN client on your computer. I have only OpenVPN.

Please don't think that I have anything against kvpnc. I'm sure, it's a good application. The main reason is really that I wanted to write my own application that is simple and does just the things I need every day - and it does.

Please keep developing this application, for me it suits my needs and I like the fact not having to be root to use it. Btw this app resembles very much to a Windows app that was written for GUI interaction with OpenVPN. I really liked the way how to use that one and am happy to see a similar one incorporated into my KDE desktop. Keep up the good work!

kvpnc has one big disadvantage (ok, i tried it a few month ago, maybe it is solved now, but the screenshots on the webpage told not). You can only connect to OpenVPN Server which are configured to listen on UDP-Ports. It is not possible to configure kvpnc to use TCP Ports to connect. There are many OpenVPN Servers out there, which are configured to listen on TCP Port 443, because this Port often available through Firewalls.

And personal i think, that kvpnc is overdressed.

kovpn is exactly what I was looking for. Simple and useful. Using the management interface is much better than starting openvpn directly.

 KOVpn moved / Help wanted

Enlighters project page is down and he doesn't reply to mails anymore. Since I found the tool useful nevertheless (NetworkManager's support is no alternative at this point), a friend and I fixed some issues on 64 Bit, brought the package up to shape and wrote spec/rule files for the OpenSUSE build service. We are still seeking out for someone who wants to test / help with Fedora packages, as the spec file is not yet working for Fedora/RHEL/CentOS. Enjoy!

Also, if there is interest in porting the tool to Qt4 (no need for a KDE dependency IMHO), please contact me.

 KDE4? And a bug

 
 by sjakub on: Dec 30 2008

1. This is great tool! I like it way more than kvpnc.
2. Is there KDE4 version planned?
3. When I used kovpnsetup and used passwords for multiple managed interfaces it did not create *_pw.txt files. When I used 'touch something_pw.txt' before running kovpnsetup it worked fine.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
