LIMITATIONS OF CISCO VPN IN SNOW LEOPARD

How to connect CISCO VPN in Snow Leopard 10.6

According to the latest review on Cnet about Cisco VPN compatibility with 10.6 the Snow Leopard version of Mac OS X is limited to TCP connections and does not support the UDP protocol. There is a built in client in Apple to connect to VPN and the limitation of TCP transportation will stop users from connecting to VPN using UDP setting. Unluckily, if your VPN server is set up to accept connections IP sec over UDP only, you will not be able to connect using Apple's client. In such a condition the use of Cisco's third-party VPN client is needed. The good news for such users is, the Cisco VPN client works well in Snow Leopard, so those who need this alternate connectivity can download the client from here: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/secursw/ps2308/index.html
