  • outdated. needs updating

  • The latest Version of OpenVPN Gui is not compilable! Where are the latest Instructions for a sucessful Build?

  • When I downloaded OpenVPN it included a GUI. I assume that I simply uncheck the box to install its GUI, do the install of the remainder of OpenVPN and then download and install your OpenVPN GUI. Correct?

  • Why is your OpenVPN GUI download still 1.0.3 while the one released recently included in OpenVPN 2.3 RC1 has OpenVPN Gui 1.0.7? Also when will you increase the number of configs allowed, it is unreasonable to be 50 config limit, it should be way above that limit I am personally using more than 150 configs. I know the modified openvpn gui 1.0.3 from Witopia had been increased to 100 limit. However the OpenVPN Manager an alternative to your GUI seems to be not limited by number of configs. Please correct this situation as I would prefer to use your GUI than others. Thank you!

  • It comes up with the center of the screen as just a white box on my Windows 7 netbook. Plus the advanced options extend mostly below the bottom of the screen. A+ for the concept. It's good it works for some. But my experience isn't promising.
