The attached SVN diff updates the security/softether port to the newest RTM version.

Comment 2 Kurt Jaeger freebsd_committer 2016-05-02 16:38:27 UTC
I had a quick look at the softether port update.

The patch changes a few pathes to /var/db/softether/,
which I would rather put into /var/log/softether/.

Is there a reason to have eg. the SERVER_LOG_DIR_NAME
to go to /var/db/ instead of /var/log ?

Similar security_log etc ?

Updated diff

attached is an updated diff that pulls in /var/log/softether and corresponding subdirs for server, packet logger etc. and solves a problem with linking the final firmware.

Portlint compliance ensured

this (hopefully) final patch ensures portlint compliance.
Comment 5 Kurt Jaeger freebsd_committer 2016-05-03 19:06:52 UTC
attachment 169888 [details] has many changes to files/patch*, which are missing from attachment 169931 [details] (the newer one). And the older one had a patch that did not apply:

Patch patch-src__Mayaqua__Unix.c failed to apply cleanly.

I'm a bit short on time, otherwise I would try so put all the stuff together. Can you try to sort this out ?

Complete port as tgz archive

dunno why svnlite diff won't include all changed files, though the attached tgz archive includes everything required.
Comment 7 Dave Cottlehuber freebsd_committer 2016-12-17 17:59:07 UTC
It seems there are 2 versions of this port since November 2016:

net/softethervpn          Cross-platform Multi-protocol VPN Software
security/softether        Softether VPN solution

Could we add:

    CATEGORIES= net security

And consolidate this down to just 1?

Given security/softether has been around since 2015, it would make more sense (less confusion to users) to consolidate here.

If the 2nd one is actually the proposed "development" branch (see https://github.com/SoftEtherVPN/SoftEtherVPN/issues/268 thread) then it should probably be net/softether-devel so the relationship is clear.
Comment 8 Kurt Jaeger freebsd_committer 2016-12-18 16:38:32 UTC
Yes, they are duplicates. When hrs@ committed the second version, he said he's going to merge both -- which is still pending.

svnlite diff


attached is the diff that should catch everything this time. Meanwhile also tested under FreeBSD 11
Comment 10 Kurt Jaeger freebsd_committer 2017-02-26 16:37:40 UTC
If I apply the patch using svn patch, the port fails in make patch. Any ideas ?

svn diff

Yes, it looks like in my test jail I used there was something very very wrong so svn / svnlite were not able to catch up most of the changes.
This has been corrected and finally svn was able to catch up everything for the required diff.

Comment 15 net 2017-02-27 22:57:33 UTC
Bit late but yes - the version here is the RTM version, while the other one is the beta version.
Maybe some kind of softether-devel port might be the better place for beta versions.
Comment 16 Kurt Jaeger freebsd_committer 2017-03-12 19:53:21 UTC


for the move to a softether-devel.
