My university decided that the old VPN-network, which worked fine, wasn't good enough anymore and abandoned it. Now I have to establish a completely new VPN-network. My university provided me with a manual (in dutch) which I followed, but it doesn't work. Almost everything could be the problem but where I'm really stuck is at the part where terminal says:
open(/home/simon/.juniper_networks/network_connect/ncsvc.log) failed: Permission denied ncsvc> Failed to setuid to root. Error 1: Operation not permitted
This happens everytime I enter the command that my university told me to execute:
'/usr/local/nc/ncsvc' ./ncsvc -h uvavpn.uva.nl -u < username > -r users -f uvavpn.uva.nl.der
I searched some fora looking for anwsers but since I'm a new Ubuntu user I didn't understand what was going on at all. Is there someone out there who knows how to solve this error? And can explain it to me in the easiest possible way? I use Ubuntu 12.04, 32-bit.
I do hope that this is the right place to ask this question, Thanks in advance, Simon
