One way to quickly connect to a Cisco VPN
Authored by: Soliman on Jun 29, '09 11:51:58AM

Because it is buggy and highly unstable? [Even manages to crash OSX completely]

Because it automatically drops connections after 1h?

Beause you don't like closed source software when its provider doesn't seem to care about service for OSX users?

Also, the Cisco client will refuse to save passwords if that's the way the connection's defined. Mine being a long random alphanumeric, I find it really frustrating to have to type this in constantly.

One way to quickly connect to a Cisco VPN

I second the buggy and unstable. These are the things that have happened for me when I used the Cisco VPN client (various versions):

I installed it and after the installation I noticed that everything I had had under /opt was now blown away and replaced with Cisco stuff (or was that /usr/local, can't remember now).

There were a few versions where you could look in the console and see a kernel extension being repeatedly loaded and unloaded at a rate of something like twice every ten seconds.

I plumbed ethernet over firewire. On good days it would work, on bad days the routing tables were so messed-up that nothing would come out or in the airport or ethernet anymore until a reboot.

Lots and lots of hangs, crashes, and panics in addition to the times when it just plain would not work for who knows what reason.
