Cisco AnyConnect for Linux

To get the Cisco VPN client working for Linux Systems, you’ll need to install Cisco AnyConnect Client. You can download from this link.

After you extract it somewhere, use the below commands.

$ sudo ./vpnsetup.sh

ciscoanyconnectlinux

Maybe you will need some necessary support. See below command for Debian/Ubuntu based systems.

$ sudo apt-get install lib32z1 lib32ncurses5
$ sudo apt install libpangox-1.0-0

and libpangox-1_0-0 for rpm based OSs. For OpenSuse you can type:

$ sudo zypper install libpangox-1_0-0

For Centos (or RHEL/Fedora based) Cisco AnyConnect requires pangox-compat. CentOS 7 does not ship with pangox, however it is in the EPEL (Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux) repository. You should be able to run these two commands to install the missing package:

$ sudo yum install http://bayramkotan.com/software/epel-release-7-6.noarch.rpm

$ sudo yum install pangox-compat

Or you can download epel-release-7-6.noarch.rpm from this link.

Windows Xp HyperTerminal for Window 7 and up

There are lots of telnet clients for your connections to cisco devices. Like Putty, Bitvise Tunnelier (Putty Website) (Comparison of SSH Clients) or you can use HyperTerminal if you are still using Windows Xp. If you are using any version of Linux you will be able to installĀ over ConsoleĀ (Terminal) easily. For Ubuntu you can use “sudo apt-get install minicom”.

If you still want to use Windows Xp HyperTerminal ( on Windows 7, Windows 8…), you can download the files from below link:
