Didn't know of that command 0:)

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 !!!

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 :)
