I have a problem with Cisco's VPN Client. It used to work, but I think
after a kernel update it stopped working. I had not tested it for a
while after the update.
I can start the deamon:
# /etc/init.d/vpnclient_init status
Module Size Used by
cisco_ipsec 547068 0
cipsec0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0B:FC:F8:01:8F
NOARP MTU:1356 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
but when I try to connect to all the VPNs this error message is always
# vpnclient connect VPN1
Cisco Systems VPN Client Version 4.8.00 (0490)

Initializing the VPN connection.
Secure VPN Connection terminated locally by the Client
Reason: Failed to establish a VPN connection.
There are no new notification messages at this time.
The system runs :

I have tried uninstalling and recompiling the client but have had no joy.
Would someone please be able to help me with this?
Best regards, Simon.
