Does anyone know why it takes about 45 seconds to get a good VPN connection?

Latency, negotiation of connection, authentication server response time, processing capacity of VPN connectivity device... take your pick.

Yes all of the above plus a slow client such as Cisco which is known for sluggish connectivity.
Check it has a 30-day trial so nothing to lose. At least you can compare. Just import your .pcf profile. Done. Make sure you uninstall your Cisc0 client before cause the two can't coexist.

Thank you for your answers. I will look further into it tomorrow at work. The wierd thing is most computers that connect using VPN connect pretty fast. Only a few of our Laptops are having latency problems where the user has to wait about 45 seconds, which is too long. My laptop connects pretty fast, I do not have to wait. I was thinking the problem might be that the laptop we are working on is 64 bit running 32 bit XP and Cisco VPN. I am still a little confused but your answers are very logical. Thanks : )
