Hi!
Currently I'm connecting to VPN network usin vpnc. But from next month they are changing the authentication method and I will have to connect to VPN network using Certificate authentication. Is this possible from Gentoo? I have googled this but I didn't find that vpnc (or any other linux client) supports this. Is there a way to configure vpnc to support this?
I have been given .pfx certificate and I can use this certificate to connect to VPN from Windows using Cisco VPN client.

I haven't done this in gentoo, but a long time ago I successfully connected to a corporate CISCO VPN using openconnect with an older version of Ubunutu (the Windows client was Cisco Anyconnect). Maybe this is where you should be looking in gentoo.

Caveats: I don't have much knowledge of Cisco VPNs e.g. openconnect vs. vpnc. Make sure your VPN administrator is happy with you connecting with a linux client, especially if this is a corporate network.
