One of the recent updates (Airport Extreme 2007-004, Security Update 2007-007) seems to have broken my Cisco VPN Client. Running vpnclient-darwin-4.9.00.0050-universal-k9.

Phooie.

I'm running MacOS X 10.4.10, MacBook Pro (Santa Rosa).

Error on starting the client:
"Error 51: Unable to communicate with the VPN subsystem.
Please make sure that you have at least one network interface that is currently active and has an IP address and start this application again."

From the console:
"privsep: unable to drop privileges: group set failed.
QString::arg(): Argument missing: Error 51: Unable to communicate with the VPN subsystem.
Please make sure that you have at least one network interface that is currently active
and has an IP address and start this application again., 4"

Ran the uninstaller script: /private/opt/cisco-vpnclient/bin/vpn_uninstall and reinstalled. Didn't seem to do much.

[edit] Nevermind. I snagged a newer version (vpnclient-darwin-4.9.01.0080-universal-k9.dmg from the badly secured site online a or b - hit google for more), uninstalled by running the uninstaller script. Rebooted. Installed. Rebooted. And now it works. I boggle.

The new icon is the ugly. Gonna go try Shimo, the sexy menu interface for the Cisco VPN client.

This is interesting: Hamachi - a zero-config VPN networking enabler. As in, it makes use of a third party mediator to get past firewalls, and from there on, data goes directly between the two machines...? (according to it's website, anyhow)

"Once you have computers hooked up via Hamachi, they will be tricked into thinking that they are on the same local area network (LAN). This leads to a number of wonderful things, some of which are obvious and some are not. "

Thus far, there's windows, linux, and MacOS X versions out.
