GitHub Enterprise connectivity

Some machines have a VPN connection to the GDS office so that they can clone repositories from GitHub Enterprise.

The Puppet class that sets up the VPN sets up openconnect and adds an alert that checks that GitHub Enterprise is reachable.


  • Ensure that the openconnect service is running
  • If it crashes as soon as you start it, check the logs
  • Use the GOV.UK Aviation House VPN credentials to try connecting from your own machine (if those don’t work, talk to the IT Service Desk)
