Cisco VPN Client connection reset by peer

I've installed the Cisco VPN client on my laptop which now has FC6 installed. Found instructions here for fixing the compilation problems, sweet! But after configuring everything and attempting to connect I get an error indicating that the connection has been reset by the peer.

I then see this message
"Peer Platform Type or Version not Allowed"

Any idea why I would be seeing that? I'm stumped.

I'd rather use vpnc, but I figure out if that supports certificates or not, my company uses certificates.

Turns out its related to the VPN settings from your IT dept. looks like they are like my IT dept. and don't allow any but windows hosts to connect.
