From OpenConnect:

OpenConnect is a client for Cisco's AnyConnect SSL VPN, which is supported by the ASA5500 Series, by IOS 12.4(9)T or later on Cisco SR500, 870, 880, 1800, 2800, 3800, 7200 Series and Cisco 7301 Routers, and probably others.


Install the openconnect package from the Official Repositories.


With NetworkManager

Install the networkmanager-openconnect package from the Official Repositories. Then configure and connect with nm-applet (network manager's tray icon) or other utility.


Run OpenConnect as root to your gateway:

# openconnect

More advanced invocation with username and password:

# echo -n 'passwd' | openconnect -u user --disable-ipv6 --passwd-on-stdin


"The standard vpnc−script shipped with vpnc 0.5.3 is not capable of setting up IPv6 routes; the one from git://−scripts.git will be required."

Download the script that OpenConnect will use to setup routing and DNS information (should be an AUR package for this eventually):

# wget

Make it executable:

# chmod +x vpnc-script

Now run OpenConnect as root with the script downloaded above, and provide the gateway:

# openconnect --script ./vpnc-script
