VPNWiz – Cisco VPN GNOME GUI for PCF files

The fine folks over at PhrankDaChicken@Ubuntu have come up with an excellent and simple GUI for the open source Cisco VPN client (vpnc).  The nice thing is that you won’t have to decrypt the group password in your cisco PCF file as VPNWiz will read the PCF files directly!

I don’t know about you, but I’ve never had much luck with the vpnc plugin for NetworkManager when connecting to my office’s VPN.

VPNWiz uses cisco PCF files to connect a GNOME linux desktop to a cisco vpn server.

Download the VPNWiz zip file, and run the install.sh file.

Go to “Apps -> Internet -> VPNWiz” to start it – follow the wizard to connect.

Click on the VPNWiz icon in the system tray to disconnect.
