I've seen many topics on the same follwoing problem, I still seem to have an issue. I am new to linux.
I just installed Fedora 5.
Updated the kernel to 2.6.17-1.2187_FC5-i686.
installed yum install kernel-devel
then Installed Cisco Client 4.8
Below is my output. I'm not sure why it won't work. Also, I am trying to use a windows PCF file. Will this file have to be modified ? One other question, once I have established a connection, will this connection beable to be shared by others.
