Cisco VPN now runs on linux 64 bit systems

 

Errm … with a patch. Cisco hasn’t released a new version for Linux yet.

Quick guide: ( I assume you knew all the requirements to install the Cisco client )

  • Go to the extracted vpn directory
  • wget http://tuxx-home.at/projects/cisco-vpnclient/cisco_skbuff_offset.patch
  • patch < cisco_skbuff_offset.patch
  • sudo ./vpn_install

That’s it.
