The request was initiated by Riaan Marx on 13 February 2018.
The current VPN solution (for staff) is end of life. IT has to investigate a new (broader) solution that will also include VPN for students and postgrads.

Overall Project Completion
1. Consider Options: Openvpn, Ethervpn and RRAS Complete 0% Tasks 0 / 0
We have a Openvpn under poc namely, Pritunl. We need to pay $50 per month in order to investigate the enterprise options. It is a wrapper app for openvpn. advantage is that it has clients for all devices but these is a cost
The only other alternative is to host a seperate internal RRAS server. The advantage is that it uses native l2tp/pptp and for devices with this functionality no additional client is required. It could also be free.
We need to make a final decision around these options
Ethervpn is not bad but there seems to be dissatisfaction amongst mac users with its’s client there.
Will talk to Eben and Pieter about the options.
The end date for this project can move to end November 2018. Thx.
