Re: Cisco VPN Client 4.0.2D error

I've seen it before, it means exactly what it says, that it can't grab UDP port 500 cause something else is already bound to it. I presume you've already removed any other VPN clients from this PC, you may find that it didn't uninstall properly though.

Shut down the VPN client service and then open up a command prompt and do a "netstat -an", this'll show you all the ports that are open, check for UDP 500 and see if it's listed. If it is then something is using it and that's why the Cisco VPN client is reporting what it is.

Thank you. I've found the responsible: PGPnet.

(Tip: Vision, from Foundstone, very useful tool).
