I managed to setup a VPN connection from a 14.04 box to a Cisco-rebranded Linksys Small Business VPN router whose default client software is QuickVPN. The software used was the Shrew Soft VPN Client. It is available on the default Ubuntu repositories. (It's open source) This guide worked like a charm: https://www.shrew.net/support/Howto_Linksys

OpenVPN won't assign server's DNS resolver(s) if you run it from terminal. This is a known behavior and until OpenVPN developers fix it, you have to run an external script to assign the DNS resolvers once the tunnel is connected, and revert when disconnected. This should work on Ubuntu, Debian, and any Debian based distros. Step 1 First, ...

The successful steps in my case were: # stop the service $ sudo /etc/init.d/openvpn stop # find the process if for some reason it keeps running $ lsof -i | grep openvpn # kill the proccess(s) by its PID $ kill -9 <PID> # if necessary restart the service again $ sudo /etc/init.d/openvpn start For some reason killall -SIGIN openvpn did not ...

From the software center, search for ppp and remove it / reinstall it. You can install everything form the terminal using this: sudo apt-get install ppp network-manager-pptp pppconfig pppoeconf pptp-linux This is a typical VPN Connection settings, from Connections, go to VPN Connections and add a new one/edit exiting or skip this if you had it setup: VPN ...

You need to modify the privileges of the user account which will set up the VPN. I'm using Xubuntu 14.04.1 LTS (running in VirtualBox 4.3.20 on 64-bit Windows 7), so the instructions may differ slightly for you if you're using stock Ubuntu. Find the "Users and Groups" tool in 'Settings'. Click "Advanced Settings" on the right of the dialog (and provide ...

I think you need an external, reachable machine where you can ssh to make the link. I used a iPad app that allowed this for windows machines using the google servers; I tried to find/adapt the solution to forward a VNC connection to my linux desktops without success. If you have an external machine where you can do ssh, you can make a reverse tunnel; ...

In Fedora and other systemd distro's that do not have /var/log/syslog, the VPN logs can be accessed with "sudo journalctl -f" -f is for follow.

You can undo your settings with changing false to true: $ gsettings set org.gnome.nm-applet disable-connected-notifications true $ gsettings set org.gnome.nm-applet disable-disconnected-notifications true $ gsettings set org.gnome.nm-applet disable-vpn-notifications true Or you can reset the value of keys to default with reset option: $ gsettings reset ...

When you set up your VPN connection through the GUI the password is saved in the key-ring. If you save your password in the connection file, like this: sudo nano /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/MyConnectionExampleName in this file: # 1 here means key-ring I think, but with 0, the password below is used [vpn] password-flags=0 ...

Okay, I found the bunch of commands that helps to re-create p12 file with password: First, you need to split p12 into cert and key file: openssl pkcs12 -in vpn.p12 -out vpn.crt.pem -clcerts -nokeys openssl pkcs12 -in vpn.p12 -out vpn.key.pem -nocerts -nodes And then combine them together: openssl pkcs12 -export -in vpn.crt.pem -inkey vpn.key.pem -out ...

When I initially started firefox, it was set to use the system proxy. According to this unix stackexchange answer: The system proxy settings should be stored as system-wide variables, present in /etc/environment In my case I set them in .pam_environment instead of /etc/environment. However, I set only http_proxy and https_proxy but not no_proxy so ...

I guess openconnect configures http proxy to be used by FF. ('Connection through HTTP proxy, including libproxy support for automatic proxy configuration.') FF Preferences - Advanced - Network etc, you should exclude localhost. Another option is a change of resolv.conf that will redirect even localhost. cat it. I'd try wget -vvv and see exact step ...

Now that I'm using absolute paths for ca, cert, key and dh I get another error. So I guess that answers this question.

I don't think you could connect to grub, afaik it doesn't have any networking capability. In the future you might be able to set your computer's BIOS to always boot from another networked computer? Or you could set up grub to have a timeout and a default action if no keys are pressed, might just need to add this to grub.cfg (apparently the top/first entry is ...

Since asking this question 30 minutes ago, I played around a found a solution that happens to work for my configuration, so decided I should share it in case other's might need something similar. (It's not a fully general solution, though, so hopefully someone can come along and give a solution that's more robust.) Instead of disabling OpenVPN on my laptop ...

So what I found was some behavior I think is not supported by the Linux clients. I loaded a Windows 7 VM and the stock Cisco VPN client. When I ran it from Windows, I was prompted for all the usual but afterwards there was an additional prompt for "The Next" RSA key after the one that I had used. So what I think happened is that this behavior was triggered ...

Not sure if I'm seeing exactly the same issue. But I solved the folowing issue: Issue: Network Bridge keeps disconnecting on a vm Ubuntu 12.04 64bit using VMWare. Workaround: Modifying the following 2 files to have an entry with the same hostname (in my case /etc/hostname was different from the one in /etc/hosts). In /etc/hosts: : 127.0.1.1 ...

If you are using their service with a Desktop it's rather easy. They have an install_ubuntu.sh script for 12 LTS that works with 14 LTS. Simply download to your computer then navigate to the script you downloaded in the terminal (CtrlAltT): cd /home/YOUR_USERNAME/Downloads/ then run the script ./install_ubuntu.sh You will have to type in your user ...

All of the following: gsettings list-recursively | grep --ignore-case vpn gsettings list-recursively | grep --ignore-case wifi gsettings list-recursively | grep --ignore-case conn give nothing useful, so 2 possibilities left: You do a feature-request at Canonical (24,557 reputation, 28 gold 118 silver and 248 bronze badges should carry some ...

This is the solution I found that achieved exactly what I was trying: Ampache's Git Repo (GitHub) Ampache is a streaming service written in PHP. It's a work in progress and they've just recently came out with version 3.0. Using this service, you can store your music in a directory (and multilevel directory) and direct Ampache to catalog that directory ...

Just ping a host inside your network that is normally always available and if the ping returns anything except 0, run the script... while : do ping -c 1 -n -W 2 HostName iPingReturn=$? if [[ $iPingReturn != 0 ]] ; then ScriptToRunInCaseOfFailure.sh fi done The disadvantage of this system is that if that specific host goes down, your script ...

I'm not sure if it was just a typo in your question but it's /usr/local, not /user/local. /usr/local is a reproduction of the same sort of hierarchy as /usr but separated and left empty by the system, so that anything installed there will not clash with anything installed by the system. It's for you to add software that you compiled/created yourself or ...

#/bin/sh should be #!/bin/sh and make sure the file is executable.
