Cisco Anyconnect Vpn Installer Package Editor

Posted onby

This is going to be an add-on post to a documented procedure, which can be found at: are the tips to get this going after reading the Cisco guide:* Use the correct profile xml file, the anyconnect client install will place a sample profile at C:ProgramDataCiscoCisco AnyConnect VPN ClientProfile which will be called AnyConnectProfile.tmpl , use this file and avoid the 'Error in validating the XML file against the latest schema' issues.* Use a text editor that does not mess with the CR LF and the XML tags, I used EditPad but other can be as good.* If you are using a machine-based certificate for the authentication, and the user has no admin rights to the machine, make sure the <CertificateStoreOverride> is set to true in the profile XML file.* The SBL icon may not be easy to find in the windows 7 login screen, on my system I need to hit CTRL+ALT+DEL and then ESC for it to appear. The place it is showing up is on the lower right side of the screen, next to the red shutdown icon. That's all folks, read through the Cisco doc, follow my tips and you will have SBL.

When I needed to configure the same functionality that is described in this tech note, I ran into a few issues and thought it may help others if I share my knowledge around that.

Start before login (SBL) is an important feature for things like computer policy or login script, drive mapping, as discussed in my previous post:

* The file you need to install is going to be named anyconnect-gina-win-2.5.2019-pre-deploy-k9.msi , versions can vary and should match the anyconnect version but this is the file you should use when installing directly on the machine (not from the ASA - web deploy).

If you don't need the 'official' Cisco AnyConnect VPN software, I highly recommend installing the 'network-manager-openconnect-gnome' package in the Ubuntu Repository. It uses OpenConnect which is an open source client for AnyConnect.Anyhow, that package allows for you to configure and manager your AnyConnect VPN connections through the normal network manager.
I have been using that to connect to my work VPN for the past few months and it has been working great!

You can find the package in the Ubuntu Software Center or Synaptic by searching for 'OpenConnect.'
If you wish to install it via the command-line, you can do so with:
sudo apt-get install network-manager-openconnect-gnome

This adds an option to Network Connections. When you choose to add a connection, there'll be a new option under VPN Connections to add a 'Cisco AnyConnect Compatible VPN (openconnect)'. You can then connect to the VPN through the networks applet (in the system tray).

I encountered a similar issue earlier. I observed that vpnagentd does not load because of libatk1 and vpnui does not load because of libxml2. Installing the 32-bit versions of these libraries resolves the issues. You should install ia32-libs to resolve the issue using

Cisco Anyconnect Vpn Installer Package Editor

This should resolve the issue for you on Ubuntu 64 bit versions. I have tried it on Ubuntu 11.10 and Ubuntu 12.04.

I just installed openconnect. Works similarly to the anyconnect command line utility.

As of Ubuntu 18.04, OpenConnect VPN client is available as an add-on to GNOME Control Center, as shown here:

To enable this add-on, you can search for 'openconnect' in ubuntu software center like so:

Then click on gnome control center and check the checkbox for 'OpenConnect VPN Client'.


Just in case you do want the Ciso Anyconnect client working take a look at this blog. Just disable the Firefox Iced Tea web plugin and go to your VPN site. Have Ubuntu download the VPN installer and run the shell script. In my case Cisco Anyconnect VPN client was installed and available under the Internet section and works fine.

In my casevpnagentd would not load. Installing the packages

sudo apt-get install lib32z1 lib32ncurses5

however, resolved the problem for me. The terminal promted the message to install these, when I tried to install ia32-libs, which seems to be obsolete.


Here are procedure that worked for me on Ubuntu 64 bit desktop 14.04.3

Now, I can ./vpnui to launch.

Never mind, I installed OpenConnect with the instructions here. Finally, I don't have to deal with that Cisco garbage!
