Hi *,

I have a problem getting my Aladdin USB eToken (using Aladdin eToken PKI-Client (formerly 'RTE') 4.55.44) up and running with Cisco VPN client ( under Mac OS X (10.5.6): The certificate on the eToken does not show up in the "certificates" tab of the VPN client and therefor I cannot establish a connection. If it helps: The certificates DO show up in Mac OS X' keychain access app while the Token is pluged in. So maybe the VPN client does not get the certificate information from the correct place?

For comparision: With Windows (XP SP3) everything works (of course ;-) fine (Aladdin eToken RTE 3.6.5, Cisco VPN client

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

one additional information:

If I export my certificate from the eToken (either via the Aladdin eToken properties or the native Mac OS X Keychain Access), import it manually into the Cisco VPN client and try to setup the VPN connection, the "Certificate Authentication" select box on the "Authentication" tab remains empty (i.e. the certificate imported earlier does not show up here nor in the "Certificates" tab).

(On my Windows XP, the certificate automagically is selected in the "Certificate Authentication" select box (and appears in the "Certificate" tab) as soon as the eToken is plugged in)

Maybe this helps in helping me :)
