I am new to mac os X.  I installed the Cisco VPN client for mac on mac os x tiger in order to build a vpn tunnel to the office cisco firewall.  The client installed fine but when i run it, i get the following error
"Error 51: IPC socket allocation failed with error ffffffffffffch. This is most likely due to the cisco systems, inc. vpn service not being started.  Please start this service and try again."

I have no clue how to start a service on a mac.  I have struggled for a few hours but cannot find a services button.
Any help would be appreciated

Have you restarted since the install? If not, do that first.

To start/restart the Cisco VPN system service, open Terminal while logged in as an admin and issue the following command:

sudo SystemStarter -v restart CiscoVPN

You will be asked for a password - enter the password of the current logged in admin user. This will start, or restart, the CiscoVPN service and display progress.
