Re: Installing SoftEther under linux ?

Installing is possible (I just did it) but you need to build from source. Not sure about configuring, there are command line options but I just used a Windows VM with the SoftEther VPN server manager installed.

These are the steps I did to get it working under Debian Stretch:
sudo apt-get install zliblg-dev libncurses5-dev libssl1.0-dev build-essential libreadline-dev git
sudo ldconfig
mkdir ~/source
cd ~/source
git clone
cd SoftEtherVPN/src/Mayaqua
mv Network.c Network.c.orig
cat Network.c.orig | sed ‘s!SSLv3_method!SSLv23_client_method!g’ > Network.c
cd ../..
sudo mv bin/vpnserver /usr/local
[create /etc/init.d/vpnserver script]
sudo chmod a+x /etc/init.d/vpnserver
sudo update-rc.d vpnserver defaults
There were a few warnings when it compiled, but it all works.

Hope this helps.

If VPS is Windows, it's possible.

I have a problem, maybe due to OpenSSL ?

When I try : cat Network.c.orig | sed ‘s!SSLv3_method!SSLv23_client_method!g’ > Network.c
It answer : bash: !SSLv3_method!SSLv23_client_method!g’: event not found
Any Idea ?

(I'm on Debian 9.2.1, OpenSSL=1.1.0F )
