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.

Installation

Install the openconnect package from the Official Repositories.

Usage

With NetworkManager

Install the OpenConnect network manager plugin:

# pacman -S networkmanager-openconnect

Then configure and connect with nm-applet (network manager's tray icon) or other utility.

Manual

Run OpenConnect as root to your gateway:

# openconnect mygateway.com

IPv6

"The standard vpnc−script shipped with vpnc 0.5.3 is not capable of setting up IPv6 routes; the one from git://git.infradead.org/users/dwmw2/vpnc−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 http://git.infradead.org/users/dwmw2/vpnc-scripts.git/blob_plain/HEAD:/vpnc-script

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 mygateway.com
