Can’t Install Cisco VPN in Ubuntu 22.04 Environment?

  Kiến thức lập trình

I’m having trouble installing the Cisco VPN client on my Ubuntu 22.04 environment. I’m new to this and would appreciate any help or recommendations for a VPN client that works well with Ubuntu 22.04. Thanks in advance!

Option 1: OpenConnect

OpenConnect is an open-source VPN client that works with Cisco’s AnyConnect SSL VPN. It’s a reliable alternative and is easy to install and use on Ubuntu.

  1. Install OpenConnect:

    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install openconnect
    
  2. Connect using OpenConnect:

    sudo openconnect --protocol=anyconnect vpn.yourserver.com
    

    Replace vpn.yourserver.com with your VPN server address.

Option 2: Network Manager Integration

To make things even easier, you can integrate OpenConnect with Network Manager, allowing you to manage your VPN connections through the GUI.

  1. Install Network Manager OpenConnect Plugin:

    sudo apt install network-manager-openconnect-gnome
    
  2. Configure VPN:

    • Open the Settings app.
    • Go to the Network section.
    • Click the + button next to VPN.
    • Choose Cisco AnyConnect Compatible VPN (openconnect).
    • Enter your VPN details and save.

Option 3: AnyConnect Client (Official)

Cisco also provides the official AnyConnect client for Linux. Here’s how you can install it:

  1. Download AnyConnect:

    • Visit the Cisco AnyConnect download page and download the Linux package.
  2. Extract the package:

    tar xvzf anyconnect-linux64-*.tar.gz
    
  3. Install AnyConnect:

    cd anyconnect-linux64-*
    sudo ./vpn_install.sh
    
  4. Launch AnyConnect:

    • You can launch the client from the terminal:
      /opt/cisco/anyconnect/bin/vpnui
