Just jotting some notes down for connecting to the Cisco AnyConnect VPN. -cjorr

Debian (from shell):


sudo apt-get install openconnect 
sudo openconnect

The output should look like this:

<ctrl+c> will disconnect you.



sudo apt-get install openconnect-network-manager-gnome

sudo yum install NetworkManager-openconnect


Go to:

  • Create

  • Click Save.

  • Select your newly created VPN connection.
  • Type in your Purdue career account username and password and select 'Login'.
  • You shouldn't save your password.
  • A successful connection may look similar to this:
