Cisco VPN client connects – no command prompt
When I connect to the remote site with Cisco VPN client and my configuration profile, I get the following output:
Negotiating security policies.
Securing communication channel.
Your VPN connection is secure.
VPN tunnel information.
Client address: XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
Server address: XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
Encryption: 168-bit 3-des
IP compression: none
NAT passthrough is active on port UDP XXX
Local LAN access is disabled [it’s deliberately disabled]
It seems that the VPN client had connected (?). I would expect that the VPN client would exit (but keep running on the background), and I would get the command prompt back. Unfortunately, I don’t get a command prompt. Why am I not getting any command prompt after connecting to the remote network through Cisco VPN client?
My ultimate goal is to write a bash script, which would connect via VPN and download some files from a remote network via FTP. Could anybody post some links to an example of a VPN session (doesn’t have to be a script)?
UPDATE: Well, I should have RTFMed better. There's a FAQ on a Cisco web site that directly amswers my question http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/...2dbe.shtml#q22
Now I just need to find out how can this be scipted :?:
