Great! Thanks.

You're the man, thanks a lot for the instructions! I could build the client in no time this way.

I guess it's too much to ask from Cisco to provide a decent client that works out of the box.

Hey! Awesome post - gj!

I can't build it due to lacking the kernel headers - where do I find those?

Goes a little something like this:

Directory containing linux kernel source code []/usr/src/packages/SOURCES/

* Binaries will be installed in "/usr/local/bin".
* Modules will be installed in "/lib/modules/3.1.0-1.2-desktop/CiscoVPN".
* The VPN service will be started AUTOMATICALLY at boot time.
* Kernel source from "/usr/src/packages/SOURCES/" will be used to build the module.

Is the above correct [y]y

Making module
make -C /usr/src/packages/SOURCES/ SUBDIRS=/home/kasper/vpnclient modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/packages/SOURCES'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `modules'. Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/packages/SOURCES'
make: *** [default] Error 2
Failed to make module "cisco_ipsec.ko".

Thanks Michal! I had to apply that patch too.

When I have that problem, I tried a couple of other VPN clients that I found there.
