For our enthusiastic users we offer the option of downloading beta releases of Access Server, when they are available. We normally build development builds internally that undergo testing until finally a build is made that we consider to be ready for release, but which requires some final in-the-field testing. Some of our regular customers have expressed an avid interest in accessing these release candidate builds, especially as we put new and interesting features into these.
As such we have created a beta program for the OpenVPN Access Server program. There is no special membership required, these builds function just like the ordinary releases, meaning they work even without a license key, allowing 2 connections (or as many as you are licensed for, if you want to test it on a production system) but obviously with the caveat that since it’s beta software, it may still be possible that the product contains some unforeseen bugs.
Our normal software license agreement for OpenVPN Access Server applies to the beta releases, as well as a warning that since this is beta software, you may not expect production level performance from the beta builds. In other words we take no responsibility if the server crashes because of an installation of a beta build of OpenVPN Access Server. Having said that, we do of course do our best to try to ensure that the product performs as expected.
To clarify: these builds are not for production use and if you do so it is at your own risk. People seeking to upgrade Access Server to the latest stable release should go here:
