Howto setup VPN , Juniper Network Connect in NUS, on Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx 64 bit! amd64

#to install sun-java6

sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ lucid partner"
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install sun-java6-plugin sun-java6-jdk sun-java6-jre ia32-sun-java6-bin fastjar

You will need to download the juniper client, the easiest way is to try to login to the webvpn address via a browser
for NUS it is


Answer 'yes' to all the questions
#Read here http://mad-scientist.us/juniper.html for more details to solve the Juniper connect

note: in 10.04 edition the su / sudo problem seems to be solved. But it seems like I still needed to use the junipernc script. 

when running junipernc script for the first time it will ask you for 
details which you only need to enter for the first time 

USER="CCEV747" <- example id from the NUS guide

when asked to "Enter your PIN + SecurID Code"
enter your password (it won't be saved)

You should be connected :)

There's another similar guide @ http://wireless.siu.edu/install-ubuntu-64.htm

Notes: I encountered a error which required me to install fastjar 

"This program requires the program 'jar'.
It is often found in the Java JDK package.
Use your package manager to install it."

Also there's a silly image that blocks the entry of iPad version of the Juniper app. ITCare is waiting for the vendor to resolve the issue.
