Safejumper open source OpenVPN client

Freewheeling spot to chew the fat on anything cryptostorm-related that doesn't fit elsewhere (i.e. support, howto, &c.). Criticism & praise & brainstorming & requests for explanation... this is where it goes when it's hot & ready for action! :-)

Safejumper open source OpenVPN client

Postby Anonymous poster » Fri Nov 25, 2016 2:42 am

Proxy.sh - which as far as I know is the only other VPN service that has really embraced open source - has created a beautiful open source OpenVPN client called Safejumper that runs on Windows, Linux, Mac, Android, and iOS.

Collaboration
If you are a VPN provider, you can feel free to use this code and customise it with your own branding. We have no problem with that. You can even hire our developer to such end. The only thing we ask in return is that you share your code so we can mutually benefit from each others’ improvements. If you have some money, you can also directly contribute to a cash pool that will support this software development. Contact us through https://proxy.sh/contact for more details.

I think that the default open VPN client isn't very user friendly since I prefer to use GUIs, so I was wondering if cryptostorm could start working on Safejumper as well and launch Safejumper: cryptostorm edition (or whatever else you want to call it).
cryptostorm and Proxy.sh both share common goals and I doubt that this would have any negative impact on business since cryptostorm is way ahead of Proxy.sh in terms of privacy and security features and I'd say all of your customers are aware of that as well.

Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with Proxy.sh. I'm just a guy that likes privacy and good open source software.

AirVPN technically has open source software with their "Eddie" client, which is a very fancy OpenVPN wrapper with some really nice features (such as an actual functioning network lock, the ability to route through Tor first as you log in to mask your RealIP even from AirVPN, which still appearing to the outside world as if you are NOT on Tor, which comes in really handy, etc.

You can view all of the code for the project here: https://github.com/AirVPN/airvpn-client

Edit: I suppose I should mention that you can't use Eddie with other VPN services without some pretty extensive changes to to the code. It's still pretty awesome and fully open to the community though.
