I am currently working to have the post_install and post_remove scripts better handle leftover files (PID locks and other miscellany) that are removed by the `uninstallNetExtender` binary in un-managed installs. This may alleviate some spurious related to stale PID locks.

@johnfrenchxyz, can you run netExtender from the command line (rather than netExtenderGui) so you can capture the error message?

When I attempt to connect to my network, the progress bar goes on indefinitely, and an error message flashes for a split second (too quickly to read), and it never actually connects.

I'm on a retina MBP. My coworker also is using a MBP and his is able to connect for some reason. I know it is not credential-related, as I can log-in via netextender on the mac.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. If I can get this to work, I can use linux exclusively at work, which would be amazing.

@casey and @tony1661, I cannot reproduce. The package installs the ip-up script with the .sh extension for me. Granted, this is done via `netExtender -i` in an install script, which I really don't like, but it's what we have.

Can you give me any more information about the issue for you?

THanks! that worked :)

@tony1661 and @chetgray

I too ran into the issue where the client would hang at "Connecting tunnel..."

The following Gentoo Forums post which mentions creating links with .sh suffixes for the generated ip-up.d and ip-down.d files worked for me.

georgyo, I can. I need to access one for a job now, so the client is necessary for me.

I no longer have a sonicwall. Does anyone want to take ownership of this package?

Version 8.5.797 is available (and 8.5.796 is no longer available). One more library needs to be packaged, as well:
