archdev, you're using the wrong SRCDIR

Am running FC3, following instructions found elsewhere to install kernel source

after rpm'ing kernel-2.6.9-1.724.src.rpm
I did:

rpmbuild -bp --target=noarch /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/kernel-2.6.spec

So then i untar the vpn client
apply patch
specify kernel source in installatoin as
/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/kernel-2.6.9/linux-2.6.9/

So dunno what I did wrong along the way...
Use the /lib/modules/<kernel-version>/build/ directory as the source directory

e.g. for the latest FC3 kernel:

./driver_build.sh /lib/modules/2.6.10-1.741_FC3/build/

Haha that too.... although when I did that before upgrading my kernel it installed and froze upon using it... with the new kernel it installed and worked fine...thanks though

I had to implement both yours and Urr's fixes to get it to work with 2.6.10 in FC3.

Any idea what had changed to break it?

more fc/3 vpn_install issues

Fellas,

I did the patch and that took care of the add net_device, but I get more errors. Thanks in advance for your help

cole
cragland@firstam.com

FC/3 -- 2.6.10-1.741_FC3
* Binaries will be installed in "/usr/local/bin".
* Modules will be installed in "/lib/modules/2.6.10-1.741_FC3/CiscoVPN".
* The VPN service will be started AUTOMATICALLY at boot time.
* Kernel source from "/usr/src/linux-2.6.10" will be used to build the module.

Is the above correct [y]

Re: archdev, you're using the wrong SRCDIR

Looks like you did what I did first, using the wrong location of the kernel src

Running 2.6.10-1.766_FC3smp. Applied patch and installed. Tunnel creation works fine... I can read Exchange mail with Evolution + Exchange connector, download and send attachments.

Problem is that if I ssh to any box and do an 'ls' in any directory with more than 4 or 5 objects, the ssh session hangs. Similarly, I cannot access any web site - browser will hang. (Strange that e-mail works flawlessly.)

If I scp 1 big tar file, no problem. If I scp -r a bunch of small files, it hangs.

Any ideas? This client is basically useless for me, right now, as I can read mail but can't work on any remote system.

Per some other post, I also tried manually setting MTU to 1500. No difference in behavior.

I have a fast broadband connection (about 5 Mbps down, 1 up). The Winblows version (running on XP) works fine, but my primary workstation is Linux and it would be great to not have to boot Windows just to do a little work.

Cisco VPN long packet problem solution

dfelicia, I had the same problem for a long time. I solved it by changing
the addresing of my local network. The remote network used the
same ones. RFC 1853 defines three ranges
(192.168.0.0/16, 10.0.0.0/8, and 172.16.0.0/12)
although if the remote networks claims all three you can always use
something completely bogus like 3.3.3.0/24 and lock yourself
out of a tiny fraction of the internet. I recommend starting with
172.22.2.0/24. Good luck.

and apply it with 'patch -p0 < patch.txt' when you are in the vpnclient directory. All that is being done is modifying interceptor.c by moving the supported_device() function definition before the add_netdev() call. I was able to build it today against FC3s new 724 kernel. If copy/paste on the patch doesn't take, I can email it to you direct.

Awesome! This worked perfectly in Ubuntu 5.10 I have been working on this problem for about 2.5 days. Thanks for posting this!

Finally, I figured out the problem was due to incorrect profile used. Now it works like charm...

Thanks for the patch!!!
