VPN SSL & Linux

L0 Member


Here are some questions about VPN SSL Linux support :

- When do you plan to provide a Linux SSL client ?

- It would be great to not need the root privilege to be able to download and/or upgrade the VPN client.

Thanks :smileycool:

So the SSL VPN client has been released for mac.

Any news on a version for Linux?

Mac OS client support has been added with PAN-OS 3.1.4. 

Regarding Linux roadmap, there is nothing coming in the near future, but it is being considered in a future release.

Linux support is the only thing holding me up from deploying this to 5000+ users

I understand.  We've had many customers provide alternate connection methods for their Linux users to achieve a near-complete rollout, but this obviously depends on the size of your Linux community as well as their willingness (and yours) to have an alternate connection method.

Any updates on the release of the SSL VPN client for Linux?

It appears the is plenty of demand for this and the Mac OS X client has been released (a flavor of Linux) so why no updates on the availability of  a Linux client since May 2010, that was 8 months ago, heck the Packers just won the Superbowl, Yeah!!, I should think Palo Alto would be able to get a Linux client built in that time...

In addition to a Linux SSLVPN client, (or an alternative) would be to support extended authentication (mode-cfg). Adds flexibility and the ability for Linux users to connect

Any more news on this?

More and more customers asking for this and getting impatient.

Also we have more and more customers asking for an android client.

We also have interest in a SSL client for Linux (Redhat/CentOS/Fedora distros).
