I have a cisco vpn client configured on mac.
When i connect the client,it works fine but
the IP address of this client is not shown in ifconfig.

As an alternative to ifconfig i tried using the api getifaddrs().
But even this api doesnt return the IP of  cisco client.

I also tried using scutil through command line.
Here i found that the IP of cisco client(172.21.128.184) is same as that of ethernet(172.21.128.184) and the interface name is also en0(same as ethernet).


I have a cisco vpn on windows.
When i connect and do a  ifconfig,
it clearly lists vpn and its new address(10.50.100.160).


Wat is the reason?
Plz let me know the solution to

Not sure why, but try this to see if you can determine the IP.

1. Can you look at the IP by accessing Network Utilities and choosing the correct interface from the Info tab?

2. Can you see a cisco interface in Network System Preferences?

3.  From the network perspective when you are connected via VPN, can you ping back to your remote Mac by name?
