I received this package at work, anyconnect-linux-64-4.0.00048-k9.pkg. I propably should get the tar.gz package, but since I am not able to download it right now, is there any way to install this pkg file on Ubuntu 14.04?

See here for more information:

anyconnect-linux-64-4.0.00048-k9.pkg: Zip archive data, at least v1.0 to extract
I opened it with archive manager, to me it seems to be some type of web deployment package. It has plenty of xml, xsd and js files in it. There is also a folder named binaries with this content:

anyconnectprof.sgz  main.js     posturesetup.sh  vpndownloader.sh  vpnsetup.sh
dartsetup.sh        pkginit.js  update.txt       VPNJava.jar

Tried this:

#./binaries/vpnsetup.sh
Installing Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client...
Extracting installation files to /tmp/vpn.RUDkj8/vpninst218038202.tgz...
Unarchiving installation files to /tmp/vpn.RUDkj8...
Starting Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client Agent...
Done!

Will have to test if the client works..  :)

You must use "openconnect" package which integrates nicely with NetworkManager VPN section.

I will have to look at this all again on monday or tuesday. The network guys have gone for the weekend, and they have access to what I need(openconnect and setup).

I received a p12 file from a network guy where I work. That was all I received from him, no instructions. I imported it into my Chrome (via gui) and Firefox web(pk12util -d /home/atle/.mozilla/firefox/fo2o75db.default -i /home/atle/Downloads/atlhol1.p12) browsers. I also imported the p12 file by opening it and choosing to import it. Don't know where it ends up then. I dug up the IP address of the vpn gateway (or whatever it is called) from some old mails I had in my inbox, and connected with my username and password. I then received a several digit passcode on my phone, which I am supposed to and which I also get when using the Windows client. I entered it, and then I get this error message:
"the anyconnect package on the secure gateway could not be located."

I guess I will have to chat more with my network guy tomorrow.

Is it with openconnect or with anyconnect?
