VMware SSL VPN-Plus Client doesn't work with Ubuntu 20.04

Hi,

I'm using VMware SSL VPN-Plus Client 6.4.0 with Ubuntu 18.04 and it works fine, but it doesn't work with Ubuntu 20.04.

The installation works fine, and the GUI is ok, I get the logon screen and after I enter my username and password and click OK it just drops and no connection is made.

Is there some newer version, or some workaround to use this client?

Thanks,

Perica

Hey pericaj​,

It does not work because is not supported: SSL VPN-Plus Overview.​ If you make it work will be a best effort.

Unfortunately the documentation is generic for NSX-V 6.4.x.

Thank you.

It would be nice to have a proper version that works with Ubuntu 20.04 made by VMware, as now I can not upgrade my workstation because I'll lose connection to all servers that are using this type of VPN.

Is there another compatible VPN client I can use?

I am afraid that the SSL-VPN Client for Ubuntu 20.04 is not supported and this is the last Ubuntu version so I did not understand what you mean by "can not upgrade my workstation"

And no, there is no other VPN Client as it comes embedded in NSX-V. I suggest you to open a SR case with VMware as you are not the first person with this issue and it seems that in the documentation they are not updating the supported versions (seems to me)

By "can not upgrade my workstation" i mean that I'm currently working on Ubuntu 18.04 on my laptop, and this VPN client is very important to me because I must connect to several servers that has this type of VPN on a daily basis, so I can not upgrade to Ubuntu 20.04 if I don't find a solution for this issue.

Thanks,

Best Regards

Oh okay I thought you were already on Ubuntu 20.04, so yes, I recommend you to not update your workstation till confirmation from VMware support.
