"This takes you to Cisco download,, you need a contract"

November 09, 2012  |  By nhm91135

 |  Version: Cisco VPN Client 4.9.01.0280

Pros

There is a solution here.
mac dot softpedia dot com/dyn-postdownload.php?p=12633&t=0&i=3
This will get you the download of vpnclient-darwin-4.9.01.0280, from some university in denmark, I installed it, tested it, works very well.

Cons

You have to manually replace the " dot " with . in the link above

Summary

Umm in case you don't know, replace the " dot " above with .

"You need a service contract to download this !!"

June 11, 2011  |  By Dmonk3

 |  Version: Cisco VPN Client 4.9.01.0280

Hard to tell. I don't have a Cisco service contract.

Cons

Quoting from Cisco.com "To Download you must have a valid service Cisco contract..."

"Gives Error 51 in 64-bit mode"

January 13, 2011  |  By quattleb

 |  Version: Cisco VPN Client 4.9.01.0180

Pros

none in OS X 10.6.x and 64-BIT MODE

Cons

Cisco VPN use to work for me but gives the Error 51 - cannot communicate with VPN Subsystem since I've gone to 64-bit mode. Restarting does not fix. I've gone to using Apple's own VPN in the Network Sys Pref. Anyone know of a fix to make this work?

Summary

I have to use VPN to access the office. So long as I can do this with Apple VPN I can survive but why can't Cisco get this working? Searching the web shows I am not the only one seeing Error 51.

"Works with Leopard and Tiger"

April 15, 2008  |  By alexhoward

 |  Version: Cisco VPN Client 4.9.01 (0100)

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This software works fine. I do, however, recommend using this with Shimo, an alternate GUI that gives you much more integration with the OS. For folks with Leopard and .Mac, give the beta of Shimo 2.0 a try. That addresses issues with Back to My Mac that I'm sure Cisco hasn't even thought about as well as longstanding pains with Fast User Switching.

"Updated from 080 with no problems"

December 16, 2007  |  By MartinBear

 |  Version: Cisco VPN Client 4.9.01 (0100)

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
4.9.01 (0100) seems to be a minor update from (080), which is a good thing IMHO.

The product works fine with my previous connection profiles, and also works OK via PPP (a Bluetooth to 3G phone link).

However ... Cisco VPN seems to be completely incompatible with Leopard file sharing. When a VPN connection is active, it's not possible to connect to AFP shares or do VNC screen-sharing on other Macs on the same LAN. This is even with "local LAN access" enabled on the profile.

This is quite possibly more a Leopard sharing and/or firewall problem, however. I also have a Netgear ReadyNAS fileserver on my LAN. With a VPN connection active, it's still possible to mount an AFP share on the NAS, even though shares on other Macs are inaccessible.

Bonjour advertising is also affected. An active VPN connection causes advertised servers to drop off the net. If you use Force Quit to Relaunch Finder, however, they come back.

My conclusion: Cisco VPN 4.9.01.100 does its job. Leopard may not be doing its job. Let's wait for Leopard 10.5.2 before making a final judgment.

I noticed this will not work on EVDO but will work on either wired or wireless network. Supposedly an update is in the works to fix this.

"No more kernek panics for my MacPro"

October 25, 2006  |  By KidKayos

 |  Version: Cisco VPN Client 4.9.01 (0080)

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I was getting the kernel panic crash at shutdown on my MacPro from the earlier version (4.9.00.0050) but this version seems to have fixed that issue.
Nice work Cisco, I didn't expect a fix so quickly!

"Quad G5 Issue Fixed in 4.9"

February 16, 2006  |  By cbassdeyfinenow

 |  Version: Cisco VPN Client 4.9.00.0050

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Finally, Cisco pulls it together. 4.9 works great on my Quad G5 with dual ethernet. Simply chose "Upgrade" with the install package and I didn't even have to change my remote VPN login configuration.

It feels great using a real terminal again, instead of hacking through Virtual PC.
