VPN Software on Ubuntu 16.04 Droplet

Hello,

I am running an application on my Ubuntu16.04 Droplet. This application needs to connect to a third party Service provider Network using a VPN. To allow this, the service provider has dictated that we have to use a licensed VPN client or VPN hardware device.

" You should use hardware device or, you can go with any licensed software and virtual appliance VPN like Sophos UTM, cisco cloud service routers, Vyatta Virtual Router/Firewall etc."

Is there anything available on DigitalOcean that I can use to meet the above need ?

If so can you also provide any help on "how to use" ?

Thank you,

    like ...etc... Sounds like they are purposely leaving it open-ended.

    What sort of VPN server are they using?

  • This is the Type of VPN server they are using:
    CISCO ASA 5555 VPN Concentrator, Version 9.2(4)
    If you know of any existing VPN Software that I can use it will be very helpful.
    Basically what I need to do is to have my application establish a VPN connection to their server and then start the communication session. The VPN session can be started from my application or any other method supported by the software.
    Thank you.
