Juniper Network Connect in Mac OS Snow Leopard

I am using Juniper Network Connect to connect to my company VPN. While I was using Windows XP, no problem at all. When I log in to the VPN login site, it will install all the necessary file to run the Network Connect.

However when I first used Mac OS Snow Leopard, the Safari browser can not load the Juniper Network Connect properly. So this is what you need to do to correct this problem. Open your Terminal in Application> Utilities> Terminal. And enter each line one after another in the Terminal command line.

sudo chmod 755 /usr/local/juniper/nc/[version number]/

sudo mkdir '/Applications/Network'

Now you may run Juniper Network Connect as you normally do in Windows XP.

  4. Hello Abuhawa,

    Thank you for posting these commands. I am a Mac novice and don’t know what to enter when the first command asks for a password. The logged in user account does not have a password (or is a blank password, i.e. press enter when prompted during a software install).

    Is there a default sudo or root password?

    Do I have to create or reset the root password using the operating system CD if I don’t know the password?

    Thank you,
