10.4: A fix for the Cisco VPN Client 4.6.03
Authored by: Schwie on Jun 14, '05 09:59:51PM

I figured it out!

Over the weekend, I transferred some files over to an iMac that didn't have AirPort and its ethernet port was fried. So, I set up Internet Sharing using Firewire between the iMac and my TiBook.

After I finished transferring the files over, I disconnected the Firewire and disabled the Firewire port on my TiBook in the Network preferences, but I never turned off Internet Sharing. This is kind of a bug in Mac OS X, because while the Macs were disconnected, I went back into Internet Sharing, and the buttons were grayed out - so, I assumed that Internet Sharing was off, but the Cisco VPN Client still didn't work...

Low and behold, when I went into Network Preferences on the TiBook, turned the Firewire port back on, and then checked Internet Sharing tab under Sharing, the buttons were lit up again, and it revealed to me that Internet Sharing was on! After I clicked stop, and then disabled the Firewire port again, the Cisco VPN Client connected again!!! Woohoo!
