6. As you can see the downloaded file is compressed in “.gz” format, we’ll need to unzip it using the command “gunzip anyconnect-predeploy-linux-64-4.2.01022-k9.tar.gz”.

gunzip anyconnect-predploy-linux-64-4.2.01022-k9.tar.gz

tar -xvf anyconnect-predploy-linux-64-4.2.01022-k9.tar

8. Now view the contents of the directory using “ls” command to find the extracted AnyConnect application directory as highlighted in blue.

ls
anyconnect-4.2.01022

9. Now access the AnyConnect directory using the command “cd anyconnect-4.2.01022″.

cd anyconnect-4.2.01022

10. Now view the contents of this directory and access the sub-directory by the name of “vpn“.

vpn
cd vpn

11. Now the file we need to begin installation is “vpn_install.sh”. Use it with “sudo ./” followed by the filename.
