AnyConnect installation on a remote server

Hello there. I'm gonna join a Cisco seminar about IaC. In this seminar, we are going to run hands-on exercises with Ansible and Terraform against DevNet sandboxes or dCloud envs. We need AnyConnect. I installed Ansible and Terraform on a remote server running Ubuntu 20 LTS (ie., Debian). Is there a way to install AnyConnect on such a remote server in order to connect to remote labs?

 

Is it going to work? Any suggestions / remarks are more than welcome

Just to make sure you understand your question.
Do you want to have the AnyConnect client installed on this server to connect to a remote network?

If so, you can have the AnyConnect package for Linux available on the Cisco site and that can be used either in cli (if it is a Linux server without gui) or the graphical client. You also have the option of using the OpenConnect package available using apt (cli and gui).

Or are you talking about having a VPN server on this server, which clients connect to?
If so, you can install OpenConnect server (ocserv) or other Linux solutions. On the other hand, AnyConnect is a Cisco brand and available as a customer only. Customers will be able to connect using either AnyConnect or OpenConnect which is available for Linux, MacOS and Windows.

Thanks
