OK, I'm in the deep end of the pool here but, have you seen this page? Like too many articles- there's NO DATE!

One other thing if I understand correctly- Juniper requires (among other things) Linux IPSEC, yes?

I'd venture to guess the right kind of help on this might be found elsewhere..

Juniper uses some proprietary vpn protocols and hence it will not work.pretty much all corporations have proprietary protocols and hence the in-built vpn for puppy will not work in a corporate environment.

That post is four years old. I think if I were looking for a recent page I'd make it this one.

Interestingly enough those "smelly old Motif libs" are referenced for the alternate install.

with the preferred method im still stuck at step 1> where in the juniper client itself does not get downloaded completely.

"1) Go to your companys' vpn site, log in and download / install the juniper client. "

i get an incomplete client and hence cant even proceed to the next steps.

Assuming you have the correct Java plugin, which, you might need in order to complete the download, contact the webmaster or try a different browser, ask where the problem lies. That I'm unable to go any further- I'm sort of out. Best of luck and do post should you find some joy.

PS- One other page.. tips perhaps. Maybe "modprobe tun" before your next download attempt..

Very useful. That Scott Deming post got me started and now I can happily tunnel to my company's network directly from Fatdog64 w/o having to start my Windows VM.
Thank you again for the good find, cheers!
