I know I don’t often blog (every other year), but wanted to share this gem as it’s been bugging me for years. My work VPN uses SNX (and old version) – it recently broke on Ubuntu – well, a combination of the latest version and upgrading to 64bit, etc. After years of running a windows VM to connect, I found a fix…. found here and here:

In summary:
Install oracle java

sudo apt-get install libstdc++5 libpam0g:i386
Run snx from the command line

Done!
