Greetings!

Does anybody know how to get this VPN https://support.speedify.com/article/56 ... y-on-linux work in porteus?
Actually the files are not exposed, I have tried to get Deb files to prep it for porteus but when I tried on terminal it just returned with the error that your distro is not supported. :unknown:

The main reason that I picked this VPN is that Iran censorship team hasn't blocked it so far, and almost any other "free" solution is dead by now

looks like it relies on systemd to run it's daemon .. slackware based porteus doesn't have this .. it might be possible to find the command to start this daemon by looking at the speedify.service file .. maybe in /etc/systemd or /usr/lib/systemd ??
otherwise, nekos aporteus has systemd ... tho it would still require some sort of conversion for arch..

Thanks for your attention.
yes, Their main approach is on Ubuntu which as far as I remember is based on systemd.
I have sent a support ticket to them asking for .deb file which is senseless since If they were interested they could have done it earlier.
I dont have ubuntu at hand to carry out the suggested procedure, please advise.

I have checked fracouise post about "what vpn do you use" but they weren't free or either blocked by censorship team of gov. However I am free to your other suggestions.
Wish I could have fresh .ovpn profiles to use instead like the ones we have on the phone...

@Juanrossi I hope that we find a way for this.

@ncmprhnsbl Their support has provided me Deb file, I even cant run deb2xzm because of kernel/devel/crippled combo issue on my brand new porteus x64 xfce 5.0rc1. Could you please see if it is convertible to xzm? here is the link

here you go: speedify_9.6.0-8358_amd64.xzm
i looked at the systemd service file( lib/systemd/system/speedify.service) :

Code: Select all

[Unit]
Description= Speedify Service
Wants=network-online.target
After=network-online.target
[Service]
ExecStart=/usr/share/speedify/SpeedifyStartup.sh
ExecStop=/usr/share/speedify/SpeedifyShutdown.sh
Restart=on-failure
RestartSec=5
TimeoutStartSec=60
TimeoutStopSec=5
KillMode=none
Type=forking
[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target
there is no service management in porteus as such, but just running /usr/share/speedify/SpeedifyStartup.sh from terminal as root seems to work(at least, there are speedify processes running) and /usr/share/speedify/SpeedifyShutdown.sh turns it off.. there is also a conf file which seems to be mainly about sharing the connection.. with that daemon(s) running, i presume that the rest is done via networkmanager.. there may be some other vpn related packages needed for that(disclaimer: i know zero about vpn)

also, about deb2xzm, getpkg binutils (and activate the resulting module) should fix that for you

Thanks for help, It seems that that module is corrupt. here is downloaded file's MD5: 565644f5000dbde61cc4599826d15f86

So there is no gui to handle the job? actually there are few enhancements can be accomplished like choosing servers / torrent friendly ,...

on porteus 5.01rc even with binutils installed I get the same error. maybe it is my mistake to upgrade to test version?

same md5sum here... and module works fine here too.. what sort of message are you getting and where are you activating the module from?

looks like there's /usr/share/speedify/speedify_cli as the interface.. there's also /usr/share/speedify/SpeedifyCLI.pdf containing instructions..

it's been a while since i've used rc1.. so it's possible that the latest binutils is incompatible(wouldn't have thought so)
the other thing is : how "clean" is you setup? can you try the module in 'always fresh' mode?

I have activated the module via Konsole and here is the output:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/home/guest/Downloads# activate speedify_9.6.0-8358_amd64.xzm 
Quiet mode: off
speedify_9.6.0-8358_amd64.xzm: Cannot read module data. Corrupted download?

Thanks!
It is activated successfully. I would be grateful if you try this and see if it works on your machine?

Code: Select all

/usr/share/speedify# ./speedify_cli login auto
I got this error message:

Code: Select all

{
        "errorCode":    5,
        "errorType":    "An issue with the account being used",
        "errorMessage": "Free accounts are not available on this system."
}
Currently I have escalated the error message to their support dept. Hope that they can help me.

p.s few years ago I tried to torify my connection but failed. I need to find a way out...
