netExtender Ubuntu 14.04 Install and run as a service
# Install
Get the archive from http://ainola.sdf.org/NetExtender.Linux.8.0.784.x86_64.tgz
Run ./install as root (otherwise it got stuck on Connecting ... for me)
# netextender.conf (upstart job)
description "netExtender VPN client"
start on runlevel [2345]
console log
chdir /tmp
exec bash /usr/local/bin/netExtender.sh
# netExtender.sh (bash script to keep it reconnecting)
export HOME=/tmp # looks like this thing needs a home folder defined otherwise it segfaults
while true
do
# we need to pipe Y to pass the certificate warning
echo "Y" | netExtender -u USERNAME -p WE_LIKE_CLEAR_TEXT_PASSWORD -d DOMAIN VPN_IP
done
