Sonicwall NetExtender and Xubuntu 11.10 (32bit) —

I have had alot experience getting Sonicwall NetExtender to work in Linux.. sometimes it installs fine, sometimes it doesn’t.

Typically the process is thus:

#1 You visit the URL of your Sonicwall.
#2 Login
#3 Download the tar.gz file for NetExtender once it figures out you are using Linux.
#4 Extract this file someplace.
#5 In a terminal you need to launch the “install” script that is included as sudo, not root, because it won’t let you.
sudo ./install


In this version of ubuntu (XFCE, Xubuntu 11.10) I got an error about libssl missing.

So.. I installed the 32bit libssl and everything seemed to work out fine.

sudo apt-get install libssl0.9.8:i386
