VPNC Help


I installed "vpnc" on my Linux box so I can VPN into my work which runs a Cisco VPN system and it seemed to of installed properly however I really don't know how to interface with the software to enable a VPN session to my Intranet at work.

Any help or comments?

if you've configured /etc/vpnc.conf just run "vpnc" to start it. nothing else to do.

No - I simply install vpnc using apt and there is no vpnc.conf.

Code:
tunafish:/home/cwilliams# cd /etc/
tunafish:/etc# cd vpnc/
example.conf  vpnc-script
tunafish:/etc# cd vpnc/vpnc-script
bash: cd: vpnc/vpnc-script: Not a directory
tunafish:/etc# file vpnc/vpnc-script
vpnc/vpnc-script: POSIX shell script text executable

Nevermind. There is no config necessary. Simply install it and run the command vpnc and follow the prompts. Very simple.

Thanks!

yes, but you *can* supply all the necessary information within the config file, so i just run "vpnc" and all levels of authentication happen without interaction.

So where is this config file you speak of? I can't find anything labeled "vpnc" in my system and I did an updatedb before I searched.
