I have a complicated (to me) problem with trying to use Ubuntu 6.10 on our office network.
Our IT group set me up with the proprietary Cisco VPN client for Mac OS X for my home machine. This client lets me connect to our secure office network without a problem. I am interested now in doing the same thing for an Intel-based ubuntu machine I have on the same home network.
To do that, I've been using the free kVPN program. It seems to have a mode that allows for Cisco connections, but I have not been able to make it work. The client is looking for something called an IPSec ID and group password, two things the official Cisco VPN client on OS X does not ask for. Blank entries don't seem to work. Copying my username and password doesn't work either. Do you have any idea what this client wants and
what I should be putting there? This is something that the proprietary Cisco client on the Mac does not ask for. I've tried entering nothing, the IP address I'm connecting to (which I also entered already), but none of these settings seem to work
OK. I wgeted (w-got?) the official cisco vpnclient, compiled and installed it.
I don't have a .pcf file for my work network. My Mac client doesn't seem to need one - at least, I can't find one.
I've tried to create one using the sample.pcf, but it's not working. It still seems to want group ID and an IPsec address.
I've tried leaving those blank, making up entries, but each time I get the error:

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.
