Unfortunately I don't actively use this anymore, and can't test it on Chrome. I'm happy to help fixing this though. If anyone can help out testing this, please open an issue on github.

@Yankko I don't know about this particular problem, but I've been using this for years and Chrome(based browsers) quite regularly stop working, during that time you need to move to Firefox, luckily you can do just:

BROWSER=/usr/bin/firefox avpnc file.ovpn

Hey everyone! I've been using this package for a long time, never ran into an issue whatsoever. But my VPN stopped working the February 4th, it started to crash whenever Google Chrome sent to Aviatrix the SAML stuff once logged in. I found out that I updated Google Chrome the February 3th, and it introduced that bug so I rollbacked the Google Chrome version to its prior one that was working on my machine, and now it ""connects"" to the VPN, it no longer crashes, but I can't reach VPN resources.

Do you know why that may be?

Wow, so much activity on a dead package.

@cprussin The previous package was a) dead, b) broken, and c) unmaintained. I might as well just requested deletion.

The new implementation is 50 lines of python, and actually works. Thanks for your comments, but I'll happily disregard them.

I would suggest using a separate package for the (unofficial) python version, rather than re-using this package (which used to, as one would expect, install the official avpnc package owned by Aviatrix)--these are two separate packages and usually I wouldn't expect an unofficial port to be distributed under the base name. Although, as I no longer use Arch, my opinion is merely advice and it won't affect me, so feel free to disregard :)

@micwoj92 Thanks for the comments, epoch added and release tagged.

You should use epoch, because the version is lower than it used to be. Also consider adding tagged releases to your github repo. Also please readd past maintainer as contributor.
