The VPN Client has been tested as working on Ubuntu version 20.04.
If you do, you must agree to the software licensing conditions, enter the root password for the machine and then click OK.
Click on settings to access the profile settings.
Click the + button (near the bottom left of the screenshot) to create a new profile
Server will consist of a different entry depending on your site:
For user/password enter your standard username and password you use to access network workstations.
Click create to finish. Click Done on the next screen.
Click the dropdown box and select the newly created profile.
Click connect to connect to the VPN.
In the event that you get a message about an invalid certificate, you should ignore it. This should only occur on certain firewalls while the VPN service is in its infancy.
If successful, you should see a screen similar to this, showing you are connected and that bytes are being sent and received.
Press stop when you are finished to terminate the VPN connection.
