Yes, that looks right -- the source in the directory doesn't mention
larc at all, but there are several .pcf's.

The .pcf file will come from your employer. It has your connection-specific
information.

Mine looks like this:


[main]
!Description=vpn-b.lacounty.gov
!Host=127.0.0.1
AuthType=1
!GroupName=acevpn
GroupPwd=
!enc_GroupPwd=E52B90CE96C8BF7F9157D6227C28DA113252E3D00E75ACD0B
EnableISPConnect=0
ISPConnectType=1
ISPConnect=
ISPCommand=
Username=e5421
SaveUserPassword=0
UserPassword=
enc_UserPassword=
NTDomain=
!EnableBackup=1
!BackupServer=127.0.0.1
EnableMSLogon=1
MSLogonType=0
!EnableNat=1
!TunnelingMode=0
!TcpTunnelingPort=10000

There were also some
executable binaries (cisco_cert_mgr, cvpnd, ipseclog, and vpnclient). I
tried just jumping into vpnclient :-), but got no reaction. It just
returned immediately to the command line. No messages of any sort. So
I went into the compile process.

the command for launching is vpnclient connect your_pcf_file


xwing:/home/kai # vpnclient connect lacrr


You then get...

Cisco Systems VPN Client Version 4.8.00 (0490)
Copyright (C) 1998-2005 Cisco Systems, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
Client Type(s): Linux
Running on: Linux 2.6.22.17-0.1-default #1 SMP 2008/02/10 20:01:04 UTC i686
Config file directory: /etc/opt/cisco-vpnclient

Initializing the VPN connection.
Contacting the gateway at your.ip.address.information
User Authentication for lacrr...

The server has requested the following information to complete the user
authentication:

Username [your_user_name]:


You then hit enter for your username and then type your password.




Again, I'm doubtful that checkinstall would work, since you use the Cisco
installer.

I had gained that impression from subsequent messages in the thread.
Thanks to all.
