    Hi everyone,

    Last night I was trying to install the vpn client on my opensuse 11 and after a lot of hit a trials I was able to get it to the final stage of installation but to my misery I ended up at this error below:

    Making module
    make -C /lib/modules/2.6.25.20-0.4-default/build SUBDIRS=/root/Desktop/vpnclient modules
    make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.25.20-0.4-obj/i386/default'
    make[1]: *** No rule to make target `modules'. Stop.
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.25.20-0.4-obj/i386/default'
    make: *** [default] Error 2
    Failed to make module "cisco_ipsec.ko".

    Take a look at the "Readme" file and check for the requirements to install.

    Compiling packages usually needs "kernel-source" and/or "kernel-syms"
    installed.

    Default Re: cisco vpn client installation error

    I used the default vpn client installed in OpenSuse(via Yast search for vpnc if not installed) without any problem in 11.0 and 11.1.
    There is a customization file which you need to create:
    default.conf
    which resides in this directory:
    /etc/vpnc

    the contents of the configuration files look like this:
    IPSec gateway retriever.aaa.yahoo.com
    IPSec ID yahoovpn
    IPSec secret yourpass
    XAuth username usrname
    the bolded strings are for your specific connection

    After this is done you need to start the vpnc as a root(just type vpnc) and you should be connected after you enter the token numeric pass(you'll be asked to).
    after that you can use terminal services or your preferred method of connection(ssh,ftp,etc)
