Here are the steps to get Juniper Network Connect working in Fedora linux, This should work for just about any linux distro:
- Open Firefox, and go to your vpn login page, view the pages source, and search for “realm” in the source code. Note the “value=xxxxxx” part of the realm input html tag…. You’ll need it while connecting.
- Return to the VPN login page and login.
- Download the following jar file and extract it to ~./juniper_networks/network_connect
- change directory to ~./juniper_networks/network_connect
- If you’re running a 64 bit os, download the following libraries glibc.i686 zlib.i686 nss-mdns.i686.
sudo dnf install glibc.i686 zlib.i686 nss-mdns.i686
- Update permissions using the following commands
sudo chown root:root ncsvc
sudo chmod 6711 ncsvc
chmod 744 ncdiag
chmod +x getx509certificate.sh
- Grab the cert from your company
./getx509certificate.sh your.domain.com filename.cert
- And now, you’re ready to connect:
./ncsvc -h your.domain.com -u yourusername -p yourpassword -r realmnamefromstep1 -f ./filename.cert
