Take a look at the “Readme” file and check for the requirements to install.
Compiling packages usually needs “kernel-source” and/or “kernel-syms”
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:
which resides in this directory:
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)
