+
==== Command Line ====
+
If you would like to connect to the VPN using the command line please make sure that you have the following:
+
*TUN/TAP compiled in your kernel or as a module. If you compiled it into the kernel, please install the new kernel and restart before continuing.
+
Device Drivers  --->

  Networking support  --->
+
    [*] Universal TUN/TAP device driver support
+
*If you compiled it as a module, please issue the following command
+
# modprobe tun
+
*VPNC installed in your system. It is highly recommended that you use your distribution's native package management utility to ensure a proper setup, Gentoo users will want to do the following
+
# emerge vpnc
+
 
+
VPNC can utilize more than one config file, this is beyond the scope of the article, please see the manpage for VPNC for more information. Edit /etc/vpnc/default.conf
+
{{Box File | /etc/vpnc/default.conf |
+
<pre>
+
IPSec gateway vpn.uakron.edu
+
IPSec ID Zipnet
+
IPSec secret zippy
+
#Xauth username UANETID
+
#Xauth password yourpassword
+
</pre>
+
}}
+
{{Box Note | The location of the configuration file may be different than above. }}
+
If you wish, uncomment the last two lines and replace 'UANETID' and 'yourpassword' with your UAnetID and password.
+
{{Box Note | It is not recommended that you put your credentials in a cleartext file. If you do so, you do it at your own risk. }}
+
 
+
As root connect to the VPN with:
+
# vpnc
+
If you uncommented the username and password lines it should connect without prompting for further information, if not, enter your UAnetID and password.

Setup (FortiClient)

Download link for Forticlient: https://www.forticlient.com/downloads

The instructions for any operating system (Windows, Mac, and Linux) can be found at: Forticlient VPN Setup
