SELinux policy...

I have yet to actually sit down and dig into selinux policy, so my question is this:

Is Cisco's VPN client for Linux totally incompatible with SELinux, or is it just that no one's taken the trouble to write a policy for it? It seems totally incongruent that you have to disable a security feature of the OS in order to use a particular vendor's security application.

Unable to compile

I have been trying to install the vpn client for 32 bit machines, ie vpnclient-linux-4.0.Rel-k9, but have been unable to compile. It always exits with:

ld: frag.o: No such file: No such file or directory
Failed to make module "cisco_ipsec".

Any suggestions? Am I missing some dependency?

Hi There,

I am experiencing the same problems with VPN 4.7.
Have you found any solutions?

Not detailed enough. Why no mention of kernel headers and kernel source?

Hi this is kind of offtopic, but has anyone gotten CiscoVPN client to connect to an openswan-based network? I know that awhile ago, one of the freeswan people said it couldn't work because they used some proprietary extensions, but this was with version 4.0(?) of the client. I was wondering if things had changed.
