What VPN protocol?

Did you make a new kernel as instructed?

At what point did you fail?

What kind of vpn are you connecting to?  If it's cisco you're in luck -- there is a very good cisco client called "vpnc".  You may also need the kernel module for the "tun" virtual interface, if it's not included in the stock VL kernel.  I haven't tried it on VL yet but I will soon.  Works great on the "brown" distro.

Were you able to install the cisco vpn client successfully?  I just recently downloaded cisco vpn client from my college campus website, but was unable to install it.

I have both vnc and the proprietary Cisco VPN client installed on my Red Hat boxes.  Works great.  I haven't tried it on VL yet.  What problems did you encounter?

Hi caitlyn,

Thanks for replying to my posts.
I ran as root
#./vpn_install
Based on the messages, it would seem some *.h files could not be found.
Undeclared here..., 'struct sk_buff' has no member named 'nh', ...
The top of the install message shows:

Cisco Systems VPN Client Version 3.7 (Rel) Linux Installer
Copyright (C) 1998-2001

I checked Cisco website and they are on version 5...
What version of Cisco are you using?
I am going to e-mail my campus tech support and see if I can get my issue resolved.

Thank you

The proprietary Cisco VPN client will *NOT* work on Vector Linux AFAIK.  Try VNC or else you'll have to use one of the distros supported by Cisco (Red Hat/CentOS or SUSE).

Have you tried of using any vpns? Like PrimoVPN.net (http://www.primovpn.net/), worth it for me.

Hope to hear any update if you try another one.

My opinion that people should select Paid VPN Service because It provides high-quality security to access Geo restricted website or content also give anonymity while download torrents.

opera-beta 39 and later dev version offer  embeded  free VPN  feature.

pls try it, just need to convert *.deb  file to txz  with slackBuild  at first.
