VPN Connectivity Issue?


I have ubuntu 8.10 running and connected to Wired Broadband connection.
I can connect to my corporate intranet on windows on same machine.
But When I tried running:

Code:
#vpnc
It ask me for couple of questions and supplied the right answer.
It says :
Code:
vpnc :no reply from target
I can browse through webpage and enter into company intranet.But the same doesnt work for the commandline.
Any Idea what may be going wrong?

You are supposed to use vpnc with a configuration file, create a configuration file based on the sample that is provided then run
Code:
vpnc /path_to_config

Hello...I tried the mentioned entry in vpnc.conf but it dint work.
One doubt - You said
Code:
IPSec ID Group_id
I have been provided 4 digit pin number from my company.
Generally when I login through browser it ask me for username and passcode ( 4 digit pin + secure ID 6 digit number)
Should i need to add IPSec ID <4 digit pin>???
I tried with vpnc.conf but same error?
Thru Browser..No Doubt it works !!
Stucked !!

If you login via a browser then you are using WEBVPN not the cisco VPN with XAUTH. vpnc cannot connect to a WEBVPN.
