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:

file <your package file>

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..  :)

Ok, looks like a .zip archive indeed. Should contain some readme or install text file. You may have found the correct script to install, is it working?

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

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.

Error means that particular anyconnect client does not support particular OS.

sudo apt-get install network-manager-openconnect-gnome

go to network manager and connect

Failing that:

Only viable option is to install CentOS 5.11 in a virtual machine for working needs.
