New IVPN Linux app with GUI now available

Releases By Viktor Vecsei | Posted on October 13, 2020

Improving the user experience for Linux customers has been a big priority for us in 2020. Earlier this year we released a fully featured CLI app. Today, following the redesigned Android and iOS/iPadOS apps, we are releasing the next iteration of our Linux app with a graphical interface.

A quick overview of the app:

We have tested the app on current Debian and Red Hat based distributions including CentOS, Debian 64, Fedora and Ubuntu. Your mileage may vary - let us know if you encounter any issues.

The app is open source - you can review its code and contribute on GitHub.

IVPN offers custom DNS servers which, when accessed through the VPN ensure that your DNS queries are encrypted between your device and our DNS server. This is a necessity, as DNS queries are not encrypted by the DNS protocol and can be easily read by an adversary observing your traffic (even when using HTTPS for your web traffic).

After the recent addition of Multi-Hop for WireGuard, we are now introducing port forwarding support for Wireguard. Port forwarding allows incoming connections on a specific port, enabling you to run various services on your device that need to be accessible from the Internet.
