Setting up a VPN Connection with Linux (Ubuntu)
Requirement: You have set your network access password in the IT Portal.
1. Download of the Cisco AnyConnect Client
Download the Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client. You may need to log in with your WWU ID and your WWU password again. Pay attention whether you need the 32 or 64-bit version. Then open the terminal and switch to the folder to which you download the program: XYZ @ XYZPC :/ home / XYZPC / # cd Downloads
2. Installation and Start of the VPN Client
Unzip the file XYZ @ XYZPC :/ home / XYZPC / downloads / # tar xfv anyconnect-linux64-VERSION-predeploy-k9.tar.gz
Then start the set up:
XYZ@XYZPC:/home/XYZPC/Downloads/# cd anyconnect-linux64-VERSION/vpn
XYZ@XYZPC:/home/XYZPC/Downloads/anyconnect-VERSION/vpn/# sudo ./vpn_install.sh
During installation, you are asked if you accept the license terms. This must be confirmed with y and Enter. Search for Cisco within your Launcher and start the Aapplication after successful installation.
If the application does not start from the start menu, the package libpangox must be installed.
- For Ubuntu: XYZ@XYZPC:/home/XYZPC/Downloads/anyconnect-VERSION/vpn/# sudo apt-get install libpangox-1.0-0
- For Suse Linux: XYZ@XYZPC:/home/XYZPC/Downloads/anyconnect-VERSION/vpn/# sudo zypper install libpangox
4. Entering the Personal Identification Details
Insert your WWU ID and your password for network access and confirm by clicking "Connect" afterwards. (Note: The network access password is not your normal WWU password. You can set it in the IT Portal.)
