Please open the terminal or the Package Manage and install the package "OpenConnect". On Ubuntu you can use the following command: XYZ@XYZPC:/home/XYZPC/# sudo apt install openconnect

To establish the VPN connection, open the terminal and enter the following command:
XYZ @ XYZPC: / home / XYZPC / # sudo openconnect vpn.uni-muenster.de
You may be asked for the password of your PC account. Then you have to enter your WWU ID and network access password and confirm with Enter. (Note: The network access password this is not your normal WWU password. You can set it in the IT Portal.) The VPN connection is now established.
3. Terminate the VPN Connection
To terminate the VPN connection you can simply terminate OpenConnect in Terminal with Ctrl + c.
