Hi Folks,

Anyone got cisco vpn client to work on sparc (sparc64 specifically),
particularly with 2.6.x kernel?

If so, appreciate if you could throw me a couple pointers.

Thanks,
-a

Since the cisco vpn client is not open sourced, it will only run on sparc if cisco feels like porting it to sparc.
I had this same problem getting the cisco vpn client to work on a standard x86 with the 2.6 kernel about a year ago.
Cisco hadn't bothered to release a 2.6 compatible one and so I had no vpn client and that was that.

You will have much more luck with the open source vpn client (vpnc) since it doesn't depend on a binary-only library and doesn't use any kernel modules.
