Cisco – AnyConnect Secure Mobile Client – Installation on Linux

My Work Laptop

Needing to do some work.

But, I don’t have my nice work laptop.

It is running Windows 10 and the  Cisco VPN Client is installed and configured.

Cheers up to our capable IT Desktop Support.

Home Laptop

Linux

At home I have a Laptop running Linux.

Linux computers and I are like I and Cars.

Can’t keep them running.

It starts up and run, but I fiddled with its user authentication system weeks ago and now I am unable to log back in.

OS – Centos

I have a Centos installer on a USB Stick.

Went the novice route, wiped the hard drive clean and re-installed the OS.
