f5vpn-login is super slow. If it's working for you, try or for something way faster.

@zrhoffman After updating to the latest version I no longer get an update prompt when starting the connection, but the client still gets stuck on "Connecting" with the same log message.

I'll gladly provide any further information if needed. I've temporarily moved to using your f5vpn-login client which works well, but is a bit slower.

Updated the AUR package to 7210.2020.0826.1. If an outdated client was the issue, it should work for you now.

@zrhoffman thank you for the quick reply. The server's version is:

@mike_yella That is strange. What version is your server running? You can find that by running:

curl -LO --compressed https://YourVpnServer/public/download/linux_f5vpn.x86_64.rpm &&
    head -n1 linux_f5vpn.x86_64.rpm |
    grep -oE --text 'f5vpn-[[:digit:]]{4}\.[[:digit:]]{4}\.[[:digit:]]{4}\.[[:digit:]]-[[:digit:]]'

As of today, I can't get past "Connecting". Last vpn.log entry is always:

2020-10-09,15:11:07:529, 8853,8853,, 48, /BrowserController.cpp, 579, void f5::qt::BrowserController::onTunnelConnecting(QString, int), Tunnel <redacted> (2) connecting...

Tried reinstalling f5vpn and downgrading kernel to 5.8.13 (which used to work for sure) but that didn't fix it. Anyone else having similar issues?

So much for that, they downgraded to 7160.2018.0417.1 again. Reverted package back to 7183.2020.0108.1 on another mirror.

zrhoffman commented on 2020-10-03 06:52

Mirror upgraded back to 7197.2020.0717.1, hopefully they don't downgrade again.

@asafk Interesting, that mirror downgraded to 7160.2018.0417.1. Rolled back to 7183.2020.0108.1, building succeeds for me.

The new version fails a build. Here's the log when running with pikaur:
