Project status update: i do not have access to the Juniper VPN host anymore, so project is stalled. Feel free to fork it or use one of the 30+ forks :) jvpn.pl - script to connect to the Juniper firewall with enabled HostChecker. Features * Emulates web browser to get authentication data * Automatically starts juniper client and passing data to it using TCP connection (it is not possible with command line). * Able to download Linux client from the Juniper VPN server without browser or Java. * Supports launching Host Checker to perform checks on a client host. * Could protect resolv.conf by setting +i attribute for the connection time * Works without Java machine on x86 and x86_64 hosts * Ability to run scripts on connect/disconnect events * Integration with external password/token providers, including "stoken" RSA softkey. Requirements * Perl with LWP modules * openssl binary * unzip (only for client unpacking) Usage To configure script edit jvpn.ini. If you don`t have installed client - run jvpn.pl under sudo and it will download and install it automatically. If you want to run it without sudo - set suid bit on the "ncsvc" binary. If you have multiply configurations - use --conf switch to define ini file. How it works 1) Script connecting to the VPN web portal with provided user name and password. 2) Then script handling different authentication scenarios to get DSID value 3) After getting DSID value script getting md5 fingerprint of the SSL certificate. 4) If VPN client is not installed script downloading and unpacking it. 5) Script starting ncsvc and connecting to daemon (using TCP 127.0.0.1:4242 socket in ncsvc mode or using "ncui" wrapper in ncui mode). 6) Script emulates native GUI and passing configuration data to daemon. After this step VPN should work. 7) Script can optionally protect resolv.conf from dhcpd or Network Manager by setting +i flag on it (disabled by default). 8) On Ctrl+C script sending "Disconnect" command to the daemon and logging out on the web site. Difference between mode=ncui and mode=ncsvc By default jvpn work in the ncsvc mode. This could be changed in jvpn.ini using "mode" configuration setting. In ncsvc (default) mode jvpn establishing TCP socket to nvsvc daemon and trying to establish connection using it protocol. In "ncui" mode jvpn tryin to use main() function libncui.so which later calling ncsvc. If default mode does not work for you i am recommending to try "ncui" mode. Please note that to use ncui mode you should have gcc installed. Scripting support It is possible to run user-defined scripts on conncect/disconnect events. To use this functionality you will need to define script to run in the jvpn.ini using script=<scriptname> line. Script should be executable file. List of pre-defined variables and sample route table modification could be found in scripts/sample-script.sh. Different ways to provide password By default jvpn asks for password on startup. It is also possible to define password in configuration file or to use external program to provide pass/token. To store password in configuration use "password=plaintext:mypassword" in ini file. To use external scripts use "password=helper:scripts/script.sh". Helper script should provide password to stdout. If it is called second time (some VPN servers requesting additional tokens) jvpn defines OLDPIN variable containing first token code. See scripts/stoken.sh for example of "stoken" integration. Host checker support In version 0.7.0 it is possible to run hostchecker using "hostchecker=1" setting in jvpn.ini. Host Checker is used to perform checks on endpoint computers that connect to the VPN device to make sure the endpoints meet certain security requirements. If hostchecker support is enabled jvpn trying to run tncc.jar using Java, as web browser applet do. JRE needs to be installed to support this feature. It is recommended to enable only if you are unable to connect without host checker running. Bugs and debugging This script is done without any documentation, only using wireshark and debugger. It is very likely that it has a bugs or will not work correctly for you. If you need some support - enable debug and send me all information. Script debug is written to stdout and daemon log is written to the ~/.juniper_networks/network_connect/ncsvc.log file.
