How to Configure SNX & Get Connectivity In Ubuntu


Here we are visiting to discuss a way to configure SNX and the way to urge connectivity in ubuntu.

SNX stands for ‘SSL(secure socket layer) network extender’. SSL act as a channel between client and server. The SSL Network Extender could also be a skinny client installed on the user's computer and an SSL-enabled web server component integrated into the protection Gateway.

It is necessary to configure a Security Gateway to support Remote Access Clients as well as a minor configuration specific to SSL Network Extender in order to enable connectivity for clients using SSL Network Extender.

SSL Network Extender can be downloaded from a Security Gateway portal.


Following is a list of the features of SSL Network Extender:

Installing and deploying the software is easy.

The programme is simple to set up and use.

The SSL Network Extender mechanism is predicated on Visitor Mode and Office Mode.

Automatic proxy detection is implemented.

Minute size client: Download size of SSL Network Extender < 400K; after installation, the size of SSL Network Extender on disk is approximately 650K.

All Security Gateway authentication schemes are fortified: Authentication is going to be performed employing a certificate, Check Point password, or external utilizer databases, like SecurID, LDAP, RADIUS, then forth.

At the end of the session, the client machine has no record of the user or Security Gateway.

Extensive logging capability on the bulwark Gateway.

High Availability Clusters and Failover are fortified.

SSL Network Extender Upgrade is fortified.

The SSL Network Extender fortifies the RC4 encryption method.

SmartDashboard provides the capability of authenticating users using certificates issued by trusted CAs that are defined intrinsically by a supervisor.

IPSO has been fortified with SSL Network Extender.

Endpoint Security on Demand averts threats posed by Malware types, like Worms, Trojan horses, Hacker's implements, Key loggers, Browser plug-ins, Adware, Third-party cookies, etc.

SSL Network Extenders are often configured to figure in Hub Mode. Hub Mode enables VPN routing for remote access clients in hub mode. A single hub serves as the conduit for all traffic.


Run the subsequent command to put in SNX on the Ubuntu Platform

Before Running Command, you would like to download the script snx_install_linux30.sh from https://starkers.keybase.pub/snx_install_linux30.sh?dl=1

1. Install snx build 800007075:

>wget https://starkers.keybase.pub/snx_install.sh?dl=1 -O snx_install30.sh

2. Install dependencies:

> sudo apt-get install libstdc++5:i386 libx11-6:i386 libpam0g:i386

3. Run snx_install.sh file :

> sudo chmod +x snx_install30.sh (Make the script executable- cd Downloads)
>sudo./snx_install30.sh (execute script)

4. You'll have known a /usr/bin/snx 32-bit client binary executable. Look for any missing dynamic libraries using:

> sudo ldd /usr/bin/snx

You can move on to the next step only when all the dependencies are met.

5.create a ~/.snxrc :

> cd /etc/snx/
> sudo nano ~/.snxrc

Installation Instructions

To properly install the SNX client on Linux. It's to be done using sudo. You'll be able to run it without sudo, then again, you'll be prompted to enter the foundation password. On many Linuxes, this password isn't known, and thus sudo id is the only option.

Assuming you're in a very terminal and your working directory is the one where you downloaded the SNX installer, please run:

chmod +X snx_install.sh

sudo ./snx_install.sh


On Linux, you possibly must install some more packages for SNX to figure properly.

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS,Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and Linux Mint 19.3 Cinnamon

sudo apt install libpam0g:i386 libx11-6:i386 libstdc++6:i386 libstdc++5:i386

ok so I download the .sh file and install all these dependencies the .sh file is now in the download folder then in the terminal I goto "cd Downloads" but when I run the line "sudo ./snx_install.sh" then there is no such file or directory - now what do I do? there is no help for when you get stuck between the solution steps - and most of the time you follow it to the letter and it still does not work. Like wine and PlayonLinux - I have never ever managed to install and run a windows applications successfully on linux. no matter whos how to I follow - it just doesn't work. so what does somebody like me who is stupid because I am not a developer do to connect to my workplace via a vpn any vpn will do - all I want to do is connect to my work and it's very difficult to understand this stuff. can somebody even call me via teams and show me physically how to get this working - I have spend a week now surfing and googling, and most of the time - i don't follow or understand the solution or they just don't work. How does one learn how to use linux - or should I give up - leave linux to the dev guys and just put up with the easier but very much disliked windows that I now seem to be stuck with because I cannot do what I need to do on Linux. ok so don't laugh I have tried many times to switch but eventually just give up because i cannot do what I can on windows. you step no.5 create a ~/.snxrc : what is this? How do I create it and where do I put it and then how do I make it work? can somebody please help this dummy - I cannot seem to even be able to copy paste and run commands - they don;t work. in the videos I watch the guys do it and it works but when I try and copy then I get all sorts of errors in the terminal - I don't know how to read most errors and have no idea what its taking about or how to get it working. looks like all the linux help out there is dev guys helping dev guys - but there is no assistance for average joes like me who want to use linux.
