  • 1.  Cilent Remote Access for Linux?

    Posted 09-12-2023 23:59

    Hi There.

    Lately I was try on my lab for configuring the IPSec VPN Remote Access on SRX300 with Juniper Secure Connect as client in Windows10. It is works well. Now I try to use Linux OS, so what to be the equivalent client for?

    The only official clients are MacOS, Windows, IOS and Android.

    You would need to look for and test out IPSEC VPN clients on Linux such as Shrew or libreswan but there are no documentation or support available as of yet.

    There is no official Linux client support for "dial-up" VPNs. 

    It depends which distribution... but as one example, Mint Linux comes with  OpenVPN. 

    I haven't dug in as to how to set it up though. The GUI based wizard would be where you can start and try that.

    But as always, from what I've seen, the config via CLI does more. 

    What distribution of Linux are you using?

    I'm using Fedora. Any variants of RHEL would appreciated. Just looking for the clue on which software client will works on it. I heard by some of VPN vendors works with OpenConnect.  There is the name of Juniper Network Connect, although I did use it but no luck on it. It is confused, is it supports of Dynamic VPN, or Remote Access VPN anyway. Since as Junos version of 21.3, they left Dynamic VPN, and I began to use Remote Access. And it doesn't work for Remote Access.

    RHEL -- gotcha.

    Since I'm transitioning one of my servers from CentOS to Rocky - I looked up Rocky on a test system and OpenVPN is available. (I haven't installed it)

    As mentioned, from what I've seen of the documentation, supporting a Juniper SRX should be possible, I just haven't done it. 

    And from what I've seen of the GUI/Wizard in Gnome, I have a feeling CLI config will be needed. (i.e. using Vim to edit a file in some fashion)
