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.

Any ideas?

One of the primary reasons which might be causing issues is the change in the Network Config.

When you work in LAN, does your Mac PowerBook Pro receive an IP from DHCP ?

Yes, it does.  I use DHCP all the time, on all of the desktop and notbook computers.  My home network has a different IP range than the work network.

Just to verify that the settings are the same, copy the .PCF file from the cisco VPN client install directory to the Virtual machine.    Make a copy of the existing .PCF then copy in the one from the working machine.    This will eliminate any client configuration issues.    Especially since I see this in the log

That didn't help, but I uninstalled/reinstalled it last night and it did work that time, so I am all set now.  Thanks.
