      OpenVPN vs Cisco AnyConnect
      pros, cons and recent comments
      OpenVPN is not a Client: it's a VPN SYSTEM and it's not compatible with other VPN systems
      Negative comment about 5 years ago

      OpenVPN is a different protocol and it's not compatible with Ciscon AnyConnect VPN.

      OpenVPN is not an alternative to the Cisco AnyConnect VPN client.
      Negative comment about 4 years ago

      I've been using it since December 2015 as a CISCO AnyConnect client on Ubuntu and it's worked solidly for me. The CISCO client is outdated, clunky, had known vulnerabilities, and required 32-bit compatibility libraries to run on 64-bit Linux. Took some command-line tinkering to setup (have to install vpnc first). People are thumbing-up the GUI version now, so if you're into that sort of thing, you might try that, but the command line version has worked great for me for almost 4 years now.

      The setup I would normally use is not easily reproducable on this client

      It is not an IPSec tunnel. It uses SSH.

      It's go the VPN Protocol for CiscoAnyConnect built in and works like the original. If anything it works better than the since it's got more features.

      rojo OpenConnect GUI is a painless alternative to Cisco AnyConnect that connects to my work VPN without effort. As a bonus, unlike the Cisco client, OpenConnect GUI does not enforce restrictive routes imposed by the VPN administrator, allowing you to retain access to your LAN while connected.
