Got a Cisco VPN connection with my office, but can't manage to get it running. I've seen that there's a:
- vpnc package: installed it, but it doesn't import the .pcf file, says it can't find the file.
Didn't know of that command 0:)
Seems easy. When it says it can't find the file, then you specified the wrong file. So what exactly is the problem?
Well the problem is (hope I could write was, but haven't tried it yet ;) that the path is right and so's the file. I'll try now with the pcf2vpnc command.
Thanks for the tip !!!
- cisco-vpnclient: but it's out-dated
This software is the greatest piece of shit ever published from what I know. But what do you expect from Cisco? A company that solves security problems by preventing the details from being published can not be taken seriously. And a company that sells a VPN appliance that is insecure by design can't either.
I know it sucks, had to patch it and patch it again when I used openSUSE because it didn't work. AFAIK they have no 64 bit VPN client, they have no up to date Linux VPN client, ... I'm not a Cisco fan, but my company has Cisco gateways/firewalls/whatever and I have no voice into that matter :(
Thanks once again for your help :)
I usually recommend strongSwan (which is in AUR) for interoperability with Cisco concentrators. It works quite well, but it's not simple to set up initially. I still believe it to be the best technical solution, but it would be beyond me to explain how to do it, via email, and for an unfamiliar situation.
