Sub_title: Can't open archive
 

I have started with Wary 5.1.1
I NEED my work VPN available.
I have installed it on a Ubuntu laptop successfully but need it on my laptop running Puppy 5.1.1.
The Archiver on puppy does not see anything in the file so stuck before I start.

I just found an older version of anyconnect, and it extracts just fine with XArchive.
But you probably should be doing things manually, anyway.
Assuming you have the latest anyconnect, v2.5.3054-k9, and it's located in /root/my-documents, do this
Code:
cd /root/my-documents
tar -zxvf anyconnect-linux-2.5.3054-k9.tar.gz
cd ciscovpn
./vpn_install.sh

This will install the anyconnect files into /opt/cisco/vpn, and start the anyconnect daemon (vpnagentd). It will also add a file to /etc/init.d so that the anyconnect daemon is started at each boot up.

So all that's remaining to do is run this -
Code:
/opt/cisco/vpn/bin/vpnui

enter your server details, and press "Connect".

Rolling Eyes
No matter what I did, it would NOT extract.
Ended up extracting on my PC, Zipping and transferring the .zip file.
Now have the ciscovpn content on puppy.
Puppy says I dont have permission to run vpn_install.sh so I assume need a sudo to do this. I assume I am root but I dont have/know a password.
Anyone know the correct method to get this to install ?

MS filesystems fail to preserve Linux file permissions.

No, you just need to make the installer file executable. Do this -
Code:
chmod 755 vpn_install.sh

Once installed, it might also be necessary to make vpnagentd and vpnui executable.
