I've been trying with little success to connect to the VPN we have at work using the VPN clients I have on my x86 linux (Ubuntu Feisty v7.04) client. Our IT department has me using the prorpietary Cisco client for Mac OS X which works just fine and uses the same home network the linux box does.
I have moved over the .pcf to the linux box and am using the exact same user name and password the Mac client is using. However, whenever I try to connect I get:
eric@frank:/etc/init.d$ vpnclient connect cmg
Cisco Systems VPN Client Version 4.8.00 (0490)
Copyright (C) 1998-2005 Cisco Systems, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
Client Type(s): Linux
Running on: Linux 2.6.20-06-generic #2 SMP Thu Jun 7 20:19:32 UTC 2007 i686
Config file directory: /etc/opt/cisco-vpnclient
privsep: unable to drop privileges: group set failed.
The application was unable to communicate with the VPN sub-system.
Network security is not one of my skills. Any guidance as to how to proceed from here would be truly appreciated.
