PostPosted: Sat 18 Dec 2010, 00:54    Post subject:  vpnc - Cisco VPN client  

vpnc is an opensource VPN client to connect to CiscoVPN servers.
I compiled it under Puppy 5.1, linking to the libgcrypt and libcrypto/libssl (OpenSSL) libraries already in Puppy5.1.
Refer to /root/my-documents/vpnc-README.txt for full instructions, but here's a quick howto:
- modify /etc/vpnc/default.conf to contain your VPN connection details.
- establish a VPN client connection with this command
Code:
vpnc
vpnc-0.5.3.pet
Description  compatible with Puppy 5.1/5.2
pet

If you want to create a VPN connection to a Microsoft MPPT-MPPE server, Puppy already contains the necessary components.
You can manually set up the configuration files and run the necessary commands, using these instructions -

Or use the "gpptp" gui from here -

Once you have established a VPN connection, you will obviously want to do something useful with it.
I have just packaged the well known remote desktop control application, RealVNC, here -

Subject description: vpnc: relocation error
 

Hi tempestuous,

I've installed the pet as well as the openssl pet available with racy pup and I'm getting stuck with the error below. I also had to install the pets from the previous post http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=609942#609942

Any suggestions?

# vpnc
vpnc: /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.8: no version information available (required by vpnc)
Enter password for xxxxx@yyyy.zzzz.com:
vpnc: relocation error: vpnc: symbol gcry_cipher_setkey, version GCRYPT_1.2 not defined in file libgcrypt.so.11 with link time reference
#

Thanks
Savio

Subject description: How I got vpnc in Racy puppy to work
 

Eventually I managed to get it to work. Here's what I did...

From this thread http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=21294 I installed the pets for libgcrypt & libgpgerror.

Then I downloaded the source for vpnc and the devx.sfs for racy.

Included the racy*devx.sfs to be loaded at boot time

Rebooted

built vpnc from source by running
Code:
make


That's it. Now I execute vpnc from the directory where it was made and it is working. I don't know how to create a pet, so can't include it here. But this was simple enough I think for most to follow the steps.
