Bug#589600: ITP: f5vpn-login -- F5 VPN command-line client

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Taku YASUI <tach@debian.org>

* Package name    : f5vpn-login
  Version         : 20091224
  Upstream Author : James Y Knight, <foom@fuhm.net>
* URL             : http://fuhm.net/software/f5vpn-login/
* License         : GPL
  Programming Lang: C, Python
  Description     : F5 VPN command-line client

 This software allows you to connect to an F5 VPN server without using
 their browser plugin. It also has the advantage of setting up DNS
 properly on OSX systems, which the official client doesn't do. (but
 maybe they will in the future, now that they can copy the method I use).

 It is not supported or affiliated with F5 in any way. I actually find it
 rather sad the client they provide is so terribly poor that I had to
 write this in order to get reliable access to my company's VPN.

 This software does not require any software from F5 to be installed on
 the client. The only requirement is Python 2.3.5 or later. It works on
 at least Linux and OSX systems, but porting to any similar OS should be
 trivial.  Porting to Windows, on the other hand, is probably not
 reasonably possible.
