Astrill Setup Manual:How to configure IPSec Cisco with vpnc client on Linux (Ubuntu)
Attention! IPSEC protocol won't be supported by Astrill after 1st January, 2021.
After vpnc is installed you must replace vpnc-script with new version. Ubuntu vpnc package installs old vpnc-script, which results in following error: Error: either "to" is duplicate, or "ipid" is a garbage.
Open terminal and then enter the following commands:
sudo su chmod 777 /etc/vpnc cd /etc/vpnc mv vpnc-script vpnc-script.old wget http://tinyurl.com/vpnc-script chmod 777 vpnc-script

Connect to Astrill Cisco IPSec VPN server
