I have a watchguard firebox with three existing muvpn connection using the watchguard client, they work just fine.  I then have a programmer that needs access from outside.  He has a Cisco vpn client installed from another one of his customers.  I need to get the Cisco vpn client to connect though my watchguard firewall.
I have spoken with watchguard and set up the firewall to allow the vpn client through but once it gets through the firewall I get an error that the host computer is not responding.
Watchguard says that Phase two is not configured properly but they can't help fix it.
What is phase to of the connection and what do I have to point it at.
please help
