F5 VPN client for Linux
 
Hello, I'm looking for the F5 VPN client for linux. It suppose to be called 'linux_sslvpn.tgz', but my VPN provide doesn't have it. Would it be possible to just get it from someplace?

Thanks!

Yes...from your VPN provider, F5. They have complete instructions on setting it up, as well as a "Downloads" section that their customers can access:

https://support.f5.com/csp/knowledge-center/software/
https://support.f5.com/kb/en-us/prod...-12-0-0/5.html
https://support.f5.com/kb/en-us/prod...-11-4-0/3.html

...and there are alternatives:
https://github.com/mattjamison/f5-vpn-client

But if you're paying for their service and can't find what you need, the best and quickest way to resolve an issue, is to call them. You're paying for support/service.

Thats all nice and dandy, but the problem is that my company doesn't support Linux, there is a client for Mac and Windows, but the Linux is disable or something. The github project doesn't really work, at least for me.

You did not mention your company in your first post, but asked about the client...we can't just 'know' what you're needing/wanting unless you tell us. If your company doesn't support Linux, then why ask for the Linux client??? If this is for your home system to connect to your work environment using the F5 VPN, then as said....go to the F5 site and download what you need. Not sure where the problem lies here, and again, we can't guess.

Saying "Linux is disable or something" and "doesn't really work", gives us nothing to go on to even BEGIN to try to help you, if you're asking for a solution.

To again answer your original quesiton: The official F5 Linux client is available from their website. Log in with your F5 user credentials, and download it.
