Manually download the Juniper VPN client for mac

The new juniper 6.5 client seems work with OSX 10.6.x better than the old ones did – it no longer requires creating a directory and setting permissions from the command line.

That said, my upgrade seemed to go ok, but a few days later, it stopped working – saying it was unable to download files from the URL of my webvpn.

I did an uninstall (I used appdelete) then downloaded the VPN client from the VPN
it turns out the client is easily obtained manually by using
(URL of your webvpn)/dana-cached/nc/NetworkConnect.dmg
this downloads the disk image file, then you can run the setup program from there – once I did that, it worked fine without any further modifications.

  1. Thanks So much for this post!
    this URL is still valid with an upgrade to Network Connect 8.0. the automated upgrade/install with me currently having 7.4.5 installed was failing for me repeatedly. i was able to pull the .dmg file directly, and manually install.
