10.4: A fix for the Cisco VPN Client 4.6.03
Authored by: sjha on Jul 13, '05 02:59:36PM

I was surprised to find that when I installed Cisco VPN Client 4.6 it created a VISIBLE 'opt' directory at the highest level (the one that shows Applications, System etc) on my Mac. Is this what shoud happen? I would have thought that the directory should either be invisible or nested somewhere lower in the directory hierarchy. Any advice would be appreciated.

10.4: A fix for the Cisco VPN Client 4.6.03

I have exactly the same problem: Even the latest release (4.7.00) of the client installs a /opt file that cannot be hiddden. : (

I've tried to force this file to be hidden in numerous ways without success. Here's what I've tried:

1. This is a symbolic link to the /private/opt/directory. You cannot delete this symbolic link without rendering the VPN client inoperative.

2. Adding a "/opt" entry in /.hidden does not hide the file.

3. Issuing a "sudo /Developer/Tools/SetFile -a v /opt" command does not hide the file.

There seems to be little we can do about this problem until Cisco fixes it from their end, unfortunately. : ( If someone else knows different, please share it here!
