Looking for working VPN - Porteus 5.0rc2

Post#1 by AcnapyxoB » 20 Aug 2020, 16:37

I am looking for answers to two questions. Both are for Porteus 5.0rc2 XFCE.
The first one is important for me, the second is out of curiosity!

1. I'm looking for a working solution for OpenConnect more precisely Cisco AniConnect VPN.
In Porteus 4.0 I had built woking modules for XFCE NetworkManager with OpenConnect and PPTP, but all attempts to assemble such module for Porteus 5.0rc2 are unsuccessful :wall:

2. When inserting a USB flash drive, it takes a long time (about 20-25 sec.) before the device is available and sometimes during this period the Thunar file manager is unusable.
This is not typical only for Porteus 5.0rc2, but rather for newer kernels ver. 5.x

Hi AcnapyxoB,

1. Do you try to build openconnect from git https://github.com/openconnect ?
What is sources do you use for build these modules (can you write names of these modules and probably links)?

2. I use Cinnamon and don't have this issue. Need to look at Thunar in Xfce.

Cheers

Blaze thanks for quick answer (as always).

In the last attempt I used NetworkManager-openconnect-1.2.4-x86_64-1alien, openconnect-7.08-x86_64-3alien and NetworkManager-vpnc-1.2.4-x86_64-2_slonly.
All from https://pkgs.org/.
Finished with a message:
The VPN connection "ALABALA" failed to start.
The VPN service 'org.freedesktop.networkManager.openconnect' was not installed.
Interesting that almost the same solution works on Porteus 4.0 64bit XFCE.

About https://github.com/openconnect I'm not very good, I don't know how to build module from source!

Cheers

With NetworkManager-vpnc I have issue when I run ./autogen.sh

Code: Select all

checking for libnm-gtk >= 1.2.0... no
configure: error: Package requirements (libnm-gtk >= 1.2.0) were not met:

Package 'NetworkManager', required by 'libnm-gtk', not found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables LIBNM_GTK_CFLAGS
and LIBNM_GTK_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
https://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.2 ... ager-vpnc/
https://github.com/NetworkManager/NetworkManager-vpnc

Any suggestion are welcome.

openconnect-8.10-x86_64-1_SBo.xzm
NetworkManager-openconnect-1.2.6-x86_64-1_SBo.xzm
vpnc-r550-x86_64-3_SBo.xzm
NetworkManager-vpnc-1.2.4-x86_64-2_slonly.xzm (old)

After activation modules, run the following commands in the terminal:

Code: Select all

su
toor
useradd -u 321 -g nogroup -d /var/empty -s /bin/false nm-openconnect

Blaze I don't know how cache-module works, but it save the situation :Yahoo!:
Tried with Cinnamon and XFCE - works for both.

Thanks!
