Hi there, I'm having an issue installing redhat compatible rpm on Fedora. I have tried to install the package on CentOS 7 and it worked perfect. Therefore, I would like to ask if I could do something on Fedora to make it install.

Hi, I'm having the same issues, It will work if you bypass security:

rpm -i --noverify

But it's not a recommended way.

Thanks for the answer. I tried that and it didn't work According to there is no official globalprotect supported version of openconnect. I tried to reinstall openconnect using the commands provided here but the command that is suggested here: didn't work openconnect --protocol=gp 'portal address' Unknown VPN protocol 'gp

Clearly, I haven't installed the right "fork" but I am not 100% familiar on how to do it. On another note, there is no way to install CentOS package on Fedora? , out of curiosity can somebody answer why ?

I'm pretty ignorant, but very curious.

You don't need to install a CENTOS packages, you just use this command, is a COPR :

sudo dnf copr search globalprotect

this is the COPR page of the project -> openconnect-globalprotect

Enable and Install it :

  1. sudo dnf copr enable erp/openconnect-globalprotect
  2. sudo dnf install openconnect

or Building from Source
