Kind of a big deal

Hello @AhmedElsayyed  I would love to go to Egypt and visit. It is on my list and you must be so lucky to live in such a historical place. Welcome to the community.

Egypt, I was there in 2018 and 2014! Beautiful country with a very interesting history.


Welcome to the community!

Thx, My dear 🙂 

New here

Salam Ailakum!

Ahmed, I'm hoping you have a miracle for me.

I am from Canada, living in Cairo for a couple months.   The boss told the whole team to work from home.  I picked a new home.  

The problem is, that I need to connect through VPN to my company.  It seems that the protocols here in Egypt are blocking me.  (We use Cisco Meraki, and I've connected from a few different countries).  A friend of mine uses AnyConnect, and he can connect his VPN.  It doesn't seem like I can download AnyConnect directly from the website.  Is it hopeless?  Do you have a miracle for me?

@HKillam I believe you need a business ISP connection.  We use another vendors equivalent of Meraki's autoVPN connecting Egypt to the UK and in general it works well.
