A couple people have asked how I vpn into my office from my Ubuntu laptop.
It's actually quite simple. I've installed the NetworkManager (
http://www.gnome.org/projects/NetworkManager/) plugin for vpnc (
http://packages.ubuntu.com/gutsy/net/network-manager-vpnc). Once you have
this installed you can import, if you have one, your Cisco pcf file. Other
wise you'll need your....
- The dns name or ip address of your cisco vpn.
- The cisco vpn's group password (most network admins don't like giving this
out... with good reason).
- Your cisco vpn password.
- The subnets that you wanted routed through the vpn tunnel.
Once you have all the above and the network-manager-vpnc module installed
just left click on the NetworkManager icon and select...
VPN Connections -> Configure VPN
There is also a a NetworkManager plugin for openvpn as well.
