Netvfy-agent is a VPN application that requires the use of the tun interface on linux.
Netvfy is a network virtualization platform.

Hi there, I dug into the build and seem to be ok to +1 after quickly looking at the source code.
What I think would make the process faster is have a pointer to a more broad explanation (e.g.; in-source README) for other people to find less friction into looking into this.

For others, the source is https://github.com/netvfy/netvfy-agent an the snapcraft.yaml lives in that tree.

Side comment, seems you are only building the cli version of the agent in snapcraft.yaml

Agreed, will add a README, thanks.
And you’re right, only building the CLI for now. The GUI is not yet completed.
Cheers !

‘netvfy-agent’ doesn’t suggest to me that this snap would automatically require network-control, even though the fact that it is a VPN application does. http://netvirt.org/ doesn’t provide a lot of additional information. The snap’s description and summary do though.

I’m with @sergiusens that this should have a README.md upstream, but that doesn’t block my vote.

+1 for auto-connection of network-control

@reviewers - can others vote?

+1 from me, makes sense for this class of application.


#7

:+1: from me, seems sensible for this application.
