Configure VPN-Connection to Fritzbox under Ubuntu 20.04

Step 1 – Create VPN-User within Fritzbox Admin Menu:

Create user with VPN privileges (System -> User; Deutsch: System -> Benutzer)
and accept to view credentials for Android and iOS.

Keep this information for Step 3!

Step 2 – Install necessary packages on Linux Client:

sudo apt install vpnc network-manager-vpnc-gnome

Step 3 – Configure new connection on Linux Client:

Under Settings choose Network and under VPN add a new connection by clicking on “+”. You have to choose “Cisco-compatible VPN-client (vpnc)“!

That’s all – please test the connection at home e.g. using your mobile phone as a hotspot!
