You can use Cisco AnyConnect VPN using the built-in Network Manager in Fedora Workstation. On Fedora 27, go to Settings -> Network -> VPN. And then, click the plus icon to add a new VPN connection. Choose Cisco AnyConnect Compatible VPN (openconnect).

Next there is a window for Add VPN. There, add the info for your VPN connection. You'll typically only need to add Gateway. Press Add and you're done.

To Start the VPN, press the on/off switch next to your VPN name and you are prompted for username and password. Provide them and you will be connected. image description

If you don't have a VPN subscription, you can use Tor Browser to bypass filtering or for anonymous browsing.
