Hello,

was anybody able to get SonicWall NetExtender to work on Gentoo. Login works, but then the client stops at stage "setting up tunnel". Is there a list of kernel options/packages needed to get this working.

It's silliness in the software package. After trying once (and killing it when it stalls), cd as root into /etc/ppp/ip-up.d and create a symlink sslvpnroute.sh -> sslvpnroute. Because they can't be bothered to name their file right. It should connect fine after that. Once it does so, go to /etc/ppp/ip-down.d and create another symlink sslvpnroutecleanup.sh -> sslvpnroutecleanup. This script gets deleted on disconnect, so you have to make the link while connected.

One thing I've found, when forced against my will to use netExtender, is that it behaves better using the CLI rather than the GUI. If your connection drops and is restarted, it tends to crash the GUI frontend. I just stuck a shell script in root's home with my commandline in it and kept a terminal tucked in a corner while on the vpn.
