I'm trying to add a vpn connection through the openconnect and using the gui. Even though it says that I am connected, I can't access any of the websites on the network I'm trying to connect to.

However, if I run this command in the terminal, I am able to access the websites.

sudo openconnect blah.google.blah

So it's probably the sudo access? How can I add that to the gui?

Enable the proposed repositories


then you can install

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

This will allow you to configure them via the NetworkManager GUI.

  • (I'm on Ubuntu 14.04) - I enabled that repository, then ran the command you suggested but I get "0 upgraded, 0 newly installed". I then tried sudo apt-get install network-manager-openconnect/xenial-proposed network-manager-openconnect-gnome/xenial-proposed but got E: Release 'xenial-proposed' for 'network-manager-openconnect' was not found E: Release 'xenial-proposed' for 'network-manager-openconnect-gnome' was not found – David Doria Sep 27 '16 at 0:48
  • 14.04 is not xenial its trusty , you need to edit your apt configuration – Amias Sep 27 '16 at 9:23
  • Oops, you're right, but it still didn't work: sudo apt-get install network-manager-openconnect/trusty-proposed network-manager-openconnect-gnome/trusty-proposed E: Release 'trusty-proposed' for 'network-manager-openconnect' was not found E: Release 'trusty-proposed' for 'network-manager-openconnect-gnome' was not found – David Doria Sep 27 '16 at 11:44
  • Note that this is the line in my sources.list deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty-proposed universe multiverse restricted main – David Doria Sep 27 '16 at 11:45
