How are you setting this up physically?  Do you have a hole in your cisco vpn to let the MS traffic through and have the cisco vpn running?  You can do this but why?  The MS VPN opens all sorts of vulnerabilties IMO.  Ours was getting whacked all the time.

Sure it is possible, jsut wondering why you would try to do this?  And yes, the MS VPN opens a whole can of worms from security perspective.
