Angry CIisco VPN and sendmail

Hello all,

I really need some help here. I'm a newbee usind linux actually been running redhat 9 for about a week now. I usually run solaris 8.

First problem is that i'm unable to connect to my work cisco vpn server.
I've installed client 4.0 and configured my .pcf file correctly. Here is my output when I run "vpnclient connect sample"

Enter a group password:
Initializing the VPN connection.
Initiating TCP to XXX.XXX.XX.XX port 10000
Contacting the gateway at XXX.XXX.XX.XX
User Authentication for XXXX..

Enter Username and Password.

Username []:
Password []:
Authenticating user.
Negotiating security policies.
Securing communication channel.
Contacting the gateway at XXX.XXX.XX.XX
Initiating TCP to XXX.XXX.XX.XX, port 10000 (backup)
Contacting the gateway at XX.XXX.XX.XX
Secure VPN Connection terminated locally by the Client
Reason: Failed to establish a VPN connection.
There are no new notification messages at this time.

I"ve shutdown my firewall, so i don't what else could be causing this??

Second problem is I can't send email's with the "mail" command? This is the error message i'm getting:
