I found this Setup Guide in your KB: https://www.sparklabs.com/support/kb/ar ... viscosity/

The linked repository only provides packages up to Ubuntu 20.04. Will you also provide packages for Ubuntu 22.04 and when can we expect them? Or are your patches already included in Ubuntu 22.04 (due to OpenVPN 2.5)?

Best regards,

Hi heimdall,

Yes, we should be able to provide some packages for Ubuntu 22.04. From memory there were a few issues caused by 22.04's move to OpenSSL 3 (OpenVPN does not yet support it), which I believe is why the official OpenVPN repo upstream doesn't have packages yet either. We'll take a look and see what we can do.

In the meantime it is possible to take the patches linked in the article and compile OpenVPN for your setup (although this does require some familiarity with configure/make syntax). The "INSTALL" file in the OpenVPN source code contains some documentation on how to build OpenVPN if you'd like to give it a try.
