What is OpenConnect?
OpenConnect is both a protocol and open source project for creating SSL VPN clients that are compatible with multiple types of remote SSL VPN servers. Such clients are compatible with the Clavister OneConnect Interface feature in Clavister cOS Core. More details about the protocol can be found at http://www.infradead.org/openconnect/. This guide covers how to connect using the CLI client included in the OpenConnect project.
Installing the OpenConnect client
Install OpenConnect according to whether Linux or Unix is being used. Pre-compiled binaries are available for Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora. For other operating systems like NetBSD, FreeBSD and Solaris, it can be compiled from the source code or using NetBSD pkgsrc.
Connecting using the OpenConnect client
Connect to Clavister NetWall by typing openconnectin a shell.
Note: The hostname entered must be the same as either the Common Name (CN) or one of the Subject Alternative Name (SAN) of the certificate used by the OneConnect interface in cOS Core.
