Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

My workplace has installed a Cisco VPN that uses a physical RSA token.
The client software is downloaded from the server, called AnyConnect. It's a combination of a java applet and a linux binary. The Java applet fails to work, however, the VPN web page provides a link to download vpnsetup.sh.
I first downloaded vpnsetup.sh to my laptop. It is an install script in which a bunch of binaries are embedded. After the installation was done, I found out it installed an /etc/init.d/vpnagentd /opt/cisco/vpn/bin/vpnui, and brought along its own version of libcrypto.so.0.9.8 and libssl.so.0.9.8. The vpnui program is a gui front end for the VPN.
It works fine on the laptop.
I then repeated the process on my desktop. It also works there, except vpnagentd is using 100% of one of the two cores is spinning, about 16% in user mode and 84% in system.
Laptop: Linux 126.96.36.199 Pentium Mobile 1.6GHz
Desktop:Linux 188.8.131.52 Intel Core Duo P8600 2.40GHz
Anyone familiar with Cisco AnyConnect or with this problem?
