Notes

  1. This VPN client does not appear to work in OS X 10.6.x. You'll get "Error 51" (whatever that means). The client (alternative download) has been tested to work in 10.4.x and 10.5.x. (See also Cisco VPN Client Documentation

    For OS X 10.6.x, use Mac's own VPN Client. Open System Preferences, Network (under Internet and Wireless), add VPN (Type Cisco IPSec) and configure accordingly.

    If you're having issues in forwarding VPN traffic (especially in OS X 10.6.x), click on Advanced... button on the preference pane and check on "Send all traffic over VPN connection."

  2. Most likely this requires reboot.
