Global Protect for Linux

Is there support for the Global Protect client for Linux? It's not a download option when logging into the portal via https. If not, is there a way to connect using Java? Would NetConnect work?_

You might want to look at this blog

it details steps on getting a Linux box to connect with a Global protect gateway. I cannot vouch for the veracity of the information, but the feedback on the page indicates it works OK.

I can vouch for the veracity of the information... I've tested vpnc with NetworkManager and it works great with a GlobalProtect Gateway as the IPSec termination point

As posted as a comment at the end of the blog, does anyone know why manually adding of routes is needed on PAN FWs for split tunneling to work using VPNC client ? The comment says that split-tunnel policy works by default without any manual intervention on the VPNC client against a Cisco2911 vpn.
