Cisco VPN client won't connect from Windows in a VMWare Fusion session on Mac OS 10.5
Posted on 2009-05-10
I have a Mac PowerBook Pro running Leopard (10.5.6) and have installed VMWare Fusion version 2, and have Windows XP Prof installed there. When at work, on the LAN, the Windows install works just fine. At home, off the LAN, the VPN client will not connect. The log file when I try to connect is below. I have verified the password several times; the same client connects fine, with the same parameters, from my Dell Windows XP computer.
