VPN for Cisco VPN 5000
My school has a Cisco VPN 5000 that I'd like to connect with, but the only problem is that I can't find any software that will work. Movian, AdmitONE, and SecureClient don't support it. I haven't tried Movian yet, but will tomorrow, but does anyone know of a client that will. I've been having a terrible, and can't even connect to the internet via an unsecure connection, because Pocket IE won't get forwarded to the login like it should. My only hope at this time is VPN which doesn't need to log in after that. Anyone with VPN experiance?

First you'll need to find out what protocols they have used for their VPN implementation. I think (not sure) that the PPC only supports PPTP (point-to-point tunneling protocol) VPNs. The cisco gear can support more advanced types of VPNs like L2TP/IPSec tunnels and other forms of heavier encryption. Once you know what flavor of VPN they have set up it will be easier to figure out how to go forward. If they have a how-to on getting desktops connected, that would probably have the information you need...

Well, I do a lot with VPNs, but I've never heard of the 5000 series. Maybe you mean the 3000 series? I'm not really clear from your description as to what's going on but..
Pretty much your only chance to get this to work is to find the network admin in charge of the VPN at school and find out exactly what settings he is using, and then set one of the VPN clients to match that."May you live in interesting times" was invented to describe me.
