How to securely connect to the BGU from Linux

The following instructions apply for connecting from outside the campus:

Install CheckPoint SNX VPN tool (SSL Network eXtender) for Linux.

telzur@gtz2:~> snx -s vpn.bgu.ac.il -u username@vpn

telzur@gtz2:~> rdesktop -u user-name -d group-of-users remote-host.bgu.ac.il

and you will get this window to login:
