Hi, all --

OpenVPN has a page up called "OpenVPN 3 Client for Linux" -- https://openvpn.net/cloud-docs/openvpn- ... -linux/.It seems to have some compelling improvements over the occasionally flaky 2.x versions:
This client is built around a completely different architecture in regards to usage. It builds heavily on D-Bus and allows unprivileged users to start and manage their own VPN tunnels out-of-the-box. System administrators wanting more control can also control and restrict this access both by hardening the default OpenVPN 3 D-Bus policy or facilitating features in OpenVPN 3 Linux.

Even though the project name carries “Linux”, it doesn’t mean it is restricted to Linux only. Any platform which has D-Bus available should be capable of running this client in theory. But since D-Bus is most commonly used in Linux environments, this will naturally be the primary focus for the project.


I'm wondering if anyone is using it on their Linux machine with Sonic and what the experience has been.
