Python automate GP VPN connection

L1 Bithead

Hi everyone!


I was asked to use Python to automate processes that download files from multiple servers. In order to connect to the servers, I must connect to the Global Protect VPN first. That said, in order to automate the process, I must also automate the VPN connection/disconnection. I tried to search for information about how to automate the GP VPN connection in Python but couldn't find any helpful posts. Could anyone please help with it? Thank you!

Hello there, since you are able to use linux and openconnect, maybe you can add inside your script a command line like:


openconnect --protocol=gp -u user -p password host:port


Best regards.

Hello @sobelarry 

If it's linux, then you can script network manager...

@IbestSec Thanks. Could you please elaborate the solution? For example, is the openconnect a module needed to be installed? If so, could you please provide the link for the library? I couldn't find it.


Thank you again for the help!

@jimzam Thanks. Could you please elaborate the solution? Not sure what I need to do in order to script network manager.
