    Thank you for the information, and I'll take a look at vpnc again.

    As noted in my post, the specific issue with vpnc with my company's Cisco VPN server is the usage of a encrypted group password. Do you know offhand if vpnc currently offers that feature?

    No, yeah I saw that little keyword in your post . I don't know off-hand if they are encrypted or not, but since it only takes 5 mins to install, if you do decide to install it, let us know, I would be interested to know...

    Regarding usage of vpnc, I found that the password encryption scheme used by Cisco VPN is easily decrypted, so my previous issue with an encrypted group password is resolved.

    I was able handshake and authenticate with my companies VPN server, but finalizing the connection did not work.

    this is not yet supported by vpnc.
    Note: the Cisco Concentrator Documentation recommends against using
    compression, expect on low-bandwith (read: ISDN) links, because it
    uses much CPU-resources on the concentrator
    The first reason is NOT the case, since previous kernels and vpn clients were function under the given circumstances.

    The second ......... well .......... that could be an issue and, per the reason, unfixable.

    Looks like my attention is returned to fixing Cisco's client on recent kernels.

    Smile *** Solved ***

    A good friend of mine discovered the solution to this problem. Thanks Todd.

    Apparently many people are having issues building all sorts of things with out-of-the-box FC6. Because the initial installation resulted in the i586 kernel and the i686 devel package.

    If you're experiencing this issue, run the following and note the architecture value:
    Code:
    rpm -q --qf '%{name}-%{version}-%{release}.%{arch}\n' kernel{,-devel}
    After acquiring the correct devel package and building the client, starting the service succeeded.

    Thanks all for helping.

    It looks like you don't have the files to build modules.
    Try "yum install kernel-headers kernel-build" (as root).

    The rpm command touted in post #34 only identifies whether you have mismatched kernel and kernel-devel packages.

    Note the link to instructions for fixing the mismatch in post #35, although there's many ways to fix the mismatch. Simply rerunning apt-get or yum -- as you discovered -- does nothing because the two packages are at their most-recent versions, despite not matching one another.

    Once the two kernel packages match, then the Cisco vpnclient should compile into a usable module.

    I fixed the issue describerd on post #35...

    However, the vpn is still not loading....same error as before...

    It looks like you missed a key part of the rpm check notably the "{,-devel}" at the end.
    Code:
    rpm -q --qf '%{name}-%{version}-%{release}.%{arch}\n' kernel{,-devel}
    Upon running the whole command, you should see something like:
    Code:
    kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.i686
    kernel-devel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.i686
    Ensure that both ix86 parts are the same. If they are NOT, that is the root of this topic. Acquire and install the correct packages, and try building vpnclient again.

    [ Fedora Core 6 ]
    Additionally be aware that you may have to create a sym link "config.h" in your source folder -- /usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-1.2849.fc6-i686/include/linux/ -- pointing to "autoconf.h" since in the latest kernels the config.h file has been obsoleted and vpnclient still looks for it.

    Still, not able to install vpnclient.....

    The rpm check seems fine...

    Code:
    [root@localhost ~]# rpm -q --qf '%{name}-%{version}-%{release}.%{arch}\n' kernel{,-devel}
    kernel-2.6.18-1.2849.fc6.i686
    kernel-devel-2.6.18-1.2849.fc6.i686
