Only OpenVPN installer .exe of openvpn-client-export



  • Hi,

    is it possible to download only the Windows OpenVPN installer without a config from "Client Export"?
    I know there is a download on http://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/downloads.html but I musst verify the download again via GPG…

    Thanks.

    you can just extract with say 7 zip, its just a sfx file.. then you can verify what is in it is correct..

    I trust pfSense, but will download the .exe from pfSense without a config.
    Is there any way?

    There is no link in the export package for just downloading the exe, but again pfsense just compresses it into a sfx package.. the openvpn exe is in there..  Its just renamed, you can verify its same as from openvpn either via gpg sig or md5 or other hash..

    just extract the exe you download with say 7 zip, and you will see whats in the sfx and the openvpn setup exe is there.

    I know that and trust pfSense.  ;)
    Don't like to verify there is the right .exe in the export package, only need the download of the .exe without the config.

    Why download it (for updates) from OpenVPN when the pfSense export package has this version allready.
    Thats where the idea come from to have an .exe only download…

    Edit:
    Its more an enhancement.  :)

    Then I would suggest you put that in as a feature request on redmine or possible the package section.
