Unhappy cisco vpn client


Hi there

I currently have RH 7.2 installed and trying to get cisco vpn client to work. I have installed ver 3.5.x and 5.2.3 and both gave me an error. The vpn client installtion the default options where choosen.

During bootup it says when Finding modules dependanceis it says: depmod *** unreolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.7-10/COMPvpn/vpnmod

Later on when trying to load the deamon it says the following:
/lib/modules/2.4.7-10/COMPvpn/vpnmod: unresolved symbol
which means the deamon failed upon startup.

PLEASE HELP


Thanking you for all your input

Try loading the kernel source on your machine if it's not there already. It must be the exact same kernel source version that you are running so If you updated using Redhat's up2date/Redhat network updater, then you may be running a different version than the kernel source loaded on your machine. The Cisco vpn client has to compile a module and needs some header files for that to complete properly. Then reinstall the Cisco vpn client of course after you have installed the correct kernel source.

how about this one??:

/etc/rc.d/rc5.d/S85vpn start
Starting VPN services: modulesWarning: loading /lib/modules/2.4.18-4GB/COMPvpn/vpnmod will taint the kernel: no license
enable/configure Done


I'm using SuSE 8. I don't see vpn0 anywhere either. I looked in modules.conf and nada..

I'm not sure what you're asking but I'll take a guess or two. This is only from memory since I don't have my VPN client machine with me right now.

The message about tainting the kernel is normal if that is bothering you. And if you are looking for a vpn0 network device, you won't see one in ifconfig. Type 'vpnclient' at a command prompt to see what options are available, one of which is to show info about the vpn interface, another is to connect which you need to do before the interface will even be there.

Another caveat is that under Redhat or any other distribution that uses a personal firewall you need to disable it for the vpnclient to work (or configure it properly to work with the Cisco vpn client). Under Redhat you can do this: 'service ipchains stop'. When I get time I will figure out how to configure ipchains so that it will run but allow the correct ports and ip protocols through.
