Is the SoftEther project dead?

Post by sfr » Mon Dec 02, 2019 12:12 pm

It seems like SoftEther is no longer maintained.

I noticed after upgrading to macOS Catalina that the VPN Server Manager app wasn't working– apparently due to not being 64bit. The download page lists a version from 2016(!)

The Web site is also slow – my download speed when downloading the almost 300mb(!) Server Manager is around 25 kb/s – and there is zero activity from the project maintainers on this message board.

Does SoftEther actually have a future?

What have you switched to as an alternative?

Perhaps it's not well covered for macOS, but for Windows and Linux it's alive and well. No issues with interface compatibility nor binaries download performance.
