This is a VPN client for Android, based on the Linux build of OpenConnect.
Much of the Java code was derived from OpenVPN for Android by Arne Schwabe.

Downloads and support
Binary APK files are also available at F-Droid.
No registration is required to download from XDA or F-Droid.
Building from source
On the host side you'll need to install:
- Android SDK in your $PATH (both platform-tools/ and tools/ directories)
- $ANDROID_HOME pointed at the Android SDK directory
- javac 1.8 and a recent version of Apache ant in your $PATH
- Use the Android SDK Manager to install API 19
- NDK r16b, nominally unzipped under /opt/android-sdk-linux_x86/
- Host-side gcc, make, etc. (Red Hat "Development Tools" group or Debian build-essential)
- git, autoconf, automake, and libtool
Compiling the external dependencies
Building OpenConnect from source requires compiling several .jar files and native binaries from external packages. These commands will build the binary components and copy them into the appropriate library and asset directories:
git clone https://github.com/cernekee/ics-openconnect cd ics-openconnect git submodule init git submodule update make -C external
This procedure only runs on a Linux PC. If you are unable to build from source, you can try fetching the cached artifacts from a recent CI build:
Compiling the app
After the binary components are built, this compiles the Java sources into an APK file:
cd ics-openconnect ./gradlew assembleDebug
To install the APK on a device:
adb install -r app/build/outputs/apk/debug/app-debug.apk
Logs of successful (and not-so-successful) builds can be found on this project's Travis CI page.
