Comment 1 Herman Viaene 2018-03-01 13:54:47 CET
MGA6-32 on Dell Latitude D600 Mate
No installation issues.
I have no experience at all with VPN's (apart from lgging into one 15 years ago), so no real testing.
It least it does not break anything in my network.

Found out there is a NetworkManager (mind the capitals!) which I can control with systemctl start etc... That works OK, but anything useful???
Comment 3 PC LX 2018-03-17 14:20:52 CET
Installed without issues.

Don't have any VPN that uses openconnect so can't actually test it.
networkmanager still works after a restart so, at least there is no regression on my side.

System: Mageia 6, x86_64, Plasma DE, Intel CPU, nVidia GPU using nvidia340 proprietary driver.

Packages installed:
- lib64openconnect5-7.08-1.mga6.x86_64
- networkmanager-openconnect-1.2.4-1.1.mga6.x86_64
- openconnect-7.08-1.mga6.x86_64

I do not see how I can add to what has been said, but for info:

This package provides a client for Cisco's "AnyConnect" VPN, which uses
HTTPS and DTLS protocols.

required by networkmanager-openconnect:
This package contains software for integrating the openconnect VPN software
with NetworkManager.

If no-one else with VPN picks this up soon, it can go as-is. Thank you both for your verifications.

Am I reading correctly???
If that is the case, must be tested with the new plasma stack

Anyone tested it with the new stack???

I have the new Qt/KDE/Plasma stack installed but I can't do more than install it and see if it break something (it didn't). I can't actually test it to see if it does what is should, connect to a VPN.

I do not think that any GUI is involved for these packages. If this is true, then the Qt5 & upwards stacks should not be relevant. (NetworkManager *does* have a GUI if you click its Systray icon; that is OK).


This 'does it start?' test was done with all the stack updates installed, and with NetworkManager running:
 # networkmanager-openconnect
bash: networkmanager-openconnect: command not found
 # openconnect
Failed to connect to Connection refused
Failed to connect to host
Failed to open HTTPS connection to
Failed to obtain WebVPN cookie
 Sensible output in the circumstances.
