AnyConnect on 64 bit Ubuntu 9.10

Thanks to a post in the Ubuntu forum I was able to easily install the AnyConnect using the following instruction:
Let me rephrase that.  I was always able to install the client but constantly received a server certificate error.  I tried to import the certificates, but no dice.  These instructions fixed that problem.

Install, or verify installed, the following packages:
1) ia32-libs
2) lib32nss-mdns
3) libcurl3
4) libxml2

Create the directory /usr/local/firefox and create symlinks for the following files: /usr/lib32/, /usr/lib32/, /usr/lib32/, /usr/lib32/, and /usr/lib32/nss/

You may need to reboot or run ldconfig so the symlinked libraries can be found.


sudo apt-get install ia32-libs lib32nss-mdns libcurl3 libxml2
cd /usr/local
sudo mkdir firefox
cd firefox
sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/
sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/
sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/
sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/
sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/nss/
sudo ldconfig

Go to the directory where you have the AnyConnect software
Untar the AnyConnect client file and run


sudo sh ./

The GUI client is automatically installed under Applications -> Internet.
