Tonight I had to download some data from the unimelb servers for an assignment, however from home you have to connect via vpn to access the "nutmeg" unix server I needed (you can't access them directly over the internet).
To do this, I installed the
openconnect package with
sudo pacman -S openconnect. And then once installed ran this command:
$ sudo openconnect remote.unimelb.edu.au/student POST https://remote.unimelb.edu.au/student Attempting to connect to server 188.8.131.52:443 SSL negotiation with remote.unimelb.edu.au Connected to HTTPS on remote.unimelb.edu.au XML POST enabled Please enter your username and password. Username:

And then boom, vpn connected and I could ssh with
Enjoy. And good job for deciding to run Linux at UniMelb.
