Open Source VPN Client with Cisco ASA

mschwen asked
Last Modified: 2010-05-18
I have Linux guys that need a VPN client for thier Linux desktops. They refuse to use the Cisco VPN client because they do frequent Kernel updates. I am looking for an Open Source VPN client that we can use on a Linux desktop that will work with a Cisco ASA. Anybody know one?

If the ASA is running Version 8.x you can use the AnyConnect Client (fromerly WEBvpn).  Then all you need is a SSL enabled browser.

This one is on us!
