...Help with Cisco VPN client 4.0.1 (and 4.0.3)
I recently upgraded my client from version 3.6.0 to version 4.0.1 (then
tried 4.0.3). I'm running Windows 2000. I uninstalled the client, rebooted,
installed the new one, rebooted and tried to connect.
Both the profiles I had on the 3.6.0 version worked, I could VPN with both
of them. Since I've installed 4.0.1, and then 4.0.3 I cannot access either
profile any longer.
Here is part of the log (if someone could help me I would greatly appreciate
it, I have no idea what's causing this problem):

I am trying to use 2 linux servers to bridge or route ip. I have tried
using OpenSwan and OpenVPN and cannot get it to work.
The setup is as follows:
InternalNet(10.0.0.0/8) > Linux(216.XXX.XXX.1)> Internet <
Linux(70.XXX.XXX.1) < Internal Net (192.168.XXX.XXX)
OpenSwan has the problem of not setting up the routing correctly on
The routing always comes up work even though the ipsec.conf file seems
to be configured correctly.
The routing on the remote comes up as:
10.0.0.0/8 gw 70.XXX.XXX.XXX when it should be 10.68.0.0/8 gw
I want to be able to use all the resources on the host network. Has
anyone gotten OpenSwan to work?
I can get some of it to work changing the routes manually. But I
shouldn't have to do that.
3 days at it already .... I'm getting dizzy.
Thanks in advance.

I just installed the cisco vpn client 4.7 for Linux on a Centos (redhat
clone) system, it works fine and dandy. Howerver it takes forever to
open a xterm session, GAIM, even the Mozilla browser. This only happens
when I'm vpned into work, if I disconnect session, everything works
fine. While I'm vpned, there is no load on the system, basically
idling, any clue, thanks in advance.

Ladies and gentlemen
I am a newbie with linux, but am old enough to have cut my teeth with
DOS and therefore at least understand file structures.
I thought I would try to install Linux on an old desktop and have ran
into a problem.
Using the Corel Linux 1.2 CD I created an install floppy since my
hardware does not support booting off of the CD. The hardware consists
of a 133 MHz pentium with 82 MB of ram, a 1.7 GB hard drive, a 800 MB
hard drive an SMC network card, and a CD_ROM drive.
I booted off of the floppy and it found the CD drive. It then let me
partition the 1.7 GB hard drive into a Linux partition and a swap file.
I used the defaults. (No other systems on this computer).
The installation then loads about 400 MB of the OS onto the hard drive.
After that it tells me to eject the floppy. When it tries to reboot it
gets to the point where it prints "LI" and then a blinking cursor. I
believe it is trying to run LILO
Thanks for any help

So many people demonstrate in this newsgroup that
they know only a Linux of Hatred and Greed, of paranoia,
and of a selfish sense of entitlement. They seem always to be
behaving like monkeys in reaction to human dissenters,
throwing feces at one another and beating their
chests pretending to know something.
My Linux is not that Linux. My Linux is the Linux of Love,
of sharing, friendship, community. It is a uniquely
human Linux and not one for monkeys. When I speak
with fellow Linux users in real life (i.e. not in the
monkeyhouse of COLA) they remind me of myself: practical,
freedom-loving, anti-corporate. Here in COLA however
they remind me of monkeys or spoiled brats or worse,
My Linux is not your Linux. It is the human Linux
that acknowledges that Linux involves human work
to create, that although it is free you are not
entitled to it, that although it is created in large part
by volunteers, they deserve to be paid for their
gifts with at least gratitude. And that monkeys and
self-entitled brats and sysadmins never thank anyone.

Per a request from one of our users that just bought an Eee PC, I
downloaded and installed the Cisco VPN client for Linux (4.8.01.0640 is
the current version). Before doing the work on the Eee PC, I downloaded a
trial of Xandros Desktop Pro 4.2, installed it on an older Pentium III
Dell w/ 256MB RAM, installed the kernel source and GCC, and ran the
installer. I already have a PCF file from the OS X and Win32 installers
I've built and that worked perfectly. What I'm wondering now is, since
this is a CLI only client, has anyone tried any of the various GUI

The strange stuff its that i can ping from one linux to the other with
no problems, but when i open a telnet session from one linux to the
other and type any command (ls, top, ifconfig, etc) the connection just
hangs and stays there forever.
If i open another telnet session to the linux server it works until the

and enter, the connection hangs..

Problem is, the laptop has no floppy drive, a questionable CDROM drive (it
reads commercial CDs fine, but hates anything created in a home burner),
and is too old to boot from the network or USB devices.
So, what I'd *like* to do is boot Debian and kick off a Slackware
installation (via NFS) from within that, which would then overwrite the
Debian install itself.
Can it actually be done? I'm suspecting not, as by the time Debian's
booted to a prompt where I can set anything off from, the OS is all up and
running and won't let something so horrible happen (unlike firing the
install off from MSDOS say, where DOS will let things stomp all over
memory if they want!)
(My other options are taking the hard disk out of the laptop and sticking
in another machine to do the install, or finding a floppy drive for the
laptop... I doubt the latter's going to be easy though)

if you have got a fast&cheap inet connection, why not try gentoo? it
sure is a bitch to install, but as soon as you get it up&running (give
it a week or two) its cool. gentoo compiles itself on your machine, but
forget the "optimized-system-gives-3%-performance-gain" aspect, i love
it because it works smooth and is easy to maintain. e.g., software
install or complete system update takes you exactly one command. each.
documentation is very good, step-by step, and there are also wiki's and
if gentoo is not your thing, you can always resort to suse (fool-proof
install; but updating means reinstall and gettings things like dvd play
to work is a real pain in the y'know) or knoppix (save your /home and
settings to a usb-stick; runs from live cd).

ah yeah, system requirement for a non-graphical linux is like *486 cpu
and stuff, so if your box is newer than three years, it should do fine.

Forget Mandrake 9.1 for powerpc:
The installer is seriously buggy. It wouldn't read the A key on my
G4 powerbook nor did it have support for my video card. It couldn't
even read the disk on my powermac G4. There are numerous bugs in the
software and problems with partitioning. Since it is what I had first,
I tried to install it a score of times before my list of workarounds
ended up in a dead end with no video card support on the powerbook.
Gentoo is a thing of beauty. Unfortunately, it doesn't understand the
most recent firmware on my G4 powermac and yaboot couldn't mount the
root partition. My kernel wouldn't read the keyboard on my powerbook.
Of course, it is possible that with some slightly different options,
that would not have happened, but the answer wasn't obvious at all.
With gentoo, everything is pretty much a matter of compiling from
source. It is like a simply designed kit for a biplane with beautifully
varnished wood and stainless steel cables all provided and all the
instructions you need to build the engine. But it wouldn't work on
either mac after carefully reading the documentation for every kernel
