    Cisco VPN client and windows 2003 server

    Having a tough time setting up the Cisco VPN client on a windows 2003 server (running terminal services)

    1st of all we couldn't install unless we stoped MS IPSEC runing. Now the application is installed but when we try to connect we get:

    Initializing the connection...
    Initiating TCP to XX.X.XX.XX, port 10000...
    Contacting the gateway at XX.XX.XX.XX.
    User authentication application failed to start.
    Any ideas?

    Stil waiting for the Tax Office (who require the use and distribute the Cisco client) to get back to me. Thought I might throw it out to a few brains out there.

    problem

    I know cisco doesnt support win 2k3 which is AMAZING to me. But i cannot even get the install to work as you described - i even tried disabling the service you mentioned...

    not really

    that doesn't help because I don't control the VPN mechanism. I have to connect to the cisco VPN and the only way i can is via their client software (because the vpn server i am connecting to doesnt support pptp).

    I just dont understand why a company as big as cisco cannot support something like windows 2003 or even have a viable work around!

    They dont think people will need to vpn from win 2k3!?!?

    I ended up getting it installed by using a diferent installer. I don't think I used the MSI installer. Everything runs fine now
