The game against B36 Torshavn ended scoreless after 90 minutes, and extra time, forcing the game into penalties.
The Faroe Islanders missed their first spot kick, with the Blues' Jim Ervin, Gary Browne, Michael Carville and Brian McCaul all scoring.
"Disappointed that it went to penalty kicks," Ervin admitted to UTV.
"We thought over the two legs we had done enough to win it out right, but just one of those things.
"It was one of those nights that we could just not seem to score, but eventually we did it in penalty kicks."
Rookie goalkeeper Ross Glendinning saved B36 Torshavn's last kick to take the Blues through.
"After about 15 minutes, I knew they were playing for penalties, and it was even more evident at extra time," Glendinning said.
"When it comes into penalty shoot-outs, there's not much pressure on the keeper in my opinion - it's just really down to luck. You got the right way and you save it."
Linfield face AEL Limassol in Cyprus next week in the next round.
