Hi all, hopefully someone can help me with this. I've got a new MBA I'm trying to get set up for business travel. Everything has gone well EXCEPT for my VPN connections. A little background: MBA 11" running 10.7.4 Connecting to a Cisco VPN 3000 concentrator (stable and in use for years) Using either the Cisco IPsec VPN client 4.9 (had to reboot in 32 bit mode) or the mac builtin client Multiple devices on my home network can connect to this same VPN INCLUDING a 15" MBP with the builtin client (also running 10.7.4) and a windows 7 laptop. Both devices above connect wirelessly which is how the MBA is connecting as well The above means that we can probably isolate the issue to the MBA I'm personally very familiar with IPsec (have a CCIE security and often work setting up corporate VPN. That doesn't mean I didn't make a stupid mistake, but I'm not shooting in the dark here at least) Ok, so with that out of the way here is what happens. The error message is very vague, just saying "A configuration error has occured. Verify your settings and try reconnecting". A little googling led me to try connecting with the console open to see debugging. That didn't really give me much more info except the below. I can see that it resolves the DNS address for the VPN concentrator just fine. I can also see it starts Ike phase 1, however I don't know if it actually sent the initial proposal and it got rejected or if it simply "started" and didn't do anything. 7/19/12 8:00:20.223 AM configd: IPSec connecting to server x.x.x.x 7/19/12 8:00:20.223 AM configd: SCNC: start, triggered by SystemUIServer, type IPSec, status 0 7/19/12 8:00:20.278 AM configd: IPSec Phase1 starting. 7/19/12 8:00:30.280 AM configd: IPSec disconnecting from server x.x.x.x 7/19/12 8:00:30.287 AM racoon: IPSec disconnecting from server x.x.x.x So, any help? Anywhere I can find additional logging info? I'm pretty stumped here as the settings are correct and work with another macbook running the same OS version, same client, same settings. I've already triple checked everything, deleted the connection and recreated multiple times, etc... Logging in the Cisco client gives a similar result.
