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 OpenConnect

# pacman -S openconnect

With NetworkManager

Install the OpenConnect network manager plugin.

# pacman -S networkmanager-openconnect

Then configure with nm-applet (tray icon) to connect to the VPN.

Manually

Initial Setup

First we will download a 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

Connecting

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

# openconnect --script ./vpnc-script mygateway.com
