Just an update on my vpn problems:
When I attempted to compile/install the cisco proprietary client on my
Debian(5) it failed. I then installed the vpnc and kvpnc pkg and all
seem to work, however, after some time it would drop the connection
and sometimes the Cisco (800 series) router to crash and require a power
With help from the list I was able to patch the cisco proprietary client
and get it working. Also the IOS on the cisco box was updated.
My Debian system works with the cisco proprietary client.
The opensource vpnc works for about 50 min and then drops the
connection, however, the Cisco router is not dying any more.
Is this a standards-based/standards-compliant issue???
Thanks to all who helped me out on this.
