My University currently uses the Cisco VPN client for all wireless connections on campus. I am running Windows Vista x64 which Cisco does not support, for whatever reason. I do not know the configuration of their Cisco equipment except that it uses IPSec/UDP Tunneling using a group name and a group password. I have third-party VPN software that DOES work with Vista x64. This software is called NCP (www.ncp.de
). NCP claims that it is compatible with all IPSec VPN setups. Can anyone please help me configure this software to log into my school's VPN? Alternatively, can anyone recommend any OTHER 64-bit compatible VPN client software that WILL work with a Cisco VPN?
I do NOT want to use a VM. That is what I currently use to connect but it is crappy because I can only use the internet inside of the VM. If there were a way to use the internet on the HOST machine via the Virtual Machine's internet connection, that might be another solution. Is this possible to do with VMWare?
