Wrapper around openconnect and the system keychain

Project description


This program is a tiny helper application to connect to different Cisco VPNs through openconnect on OS X. It just wraps openconnect to add some basic profile support.

How to make it run on OS X:

$ brew install openconnect $ brew install tuntap

Note that the brew version of openconnect comes without RSA token support. You will need to manually compile it and stoken support if you want that.

For tuntap follow the guides after installation and don’t forget to load the kext.

If you do not have vpnc-script you can download it:

To install place it in /etc/vpnc/vpnc-script and make sure it is executable.

To install osx-openconnect-helper use pip or pipsi:

$ pipsi install osx-openconnect-helper

From that point onwards you can add a vpn:

$ openconnect-helper add myvpn https://myvpn.invalid/ –user me

And connect:

$ sudo openconnect-helper connect myvpn

It uses the OS X keychain to manage passwords.
