Big-IP Edge client on arm-based Apple M1

Hello,

I tried to use the client on arm-based Apple M1 device. It was on Parallels as a VM and windows 10 (arm-based) as host os. Since I was not able to find a native arm-based client version, it was run in an emulated mode in windows. It connected to the server, went through 2-form authentication, but in the final stage, it was not able to authenticate. It automatically tried to reinstall network adapter, but with no success. It just took me back to the login screen.

 

Was anyone able to run the client on arm-based windows?

Hello Dario, thank you for your answer.

 

Will the versions you mention run on ARM-based Windows 10?

 

The client that I was given by the company say (the one that does not work correctly):

build version 7132,2016,926,2121

api version 7132,2016,926,2121

 

Is the first number the version you refer to?

 

Thanks.
