    Trying to setup the VPN client in Mav to connect to our Cisco 501E Firewall.
    Getting error "The VPN server did not respond. Verify the server address and try reconnecting".

    I am trying to connect via IP, we had PCs that were connecting fine via the Cisco client, but now we are switching a few staff to MACs. I copied everything exactly as we had in the PCs.

    Help please..Thanks

    Did you use the current Cisco software? Look here for updated OS X versions.

    Cisco VPN

    Strange as it may seem, I sometimes have to change my IP address a few times and then the VPN works for weeks. Then all of a sudden it stops and I have to try a few new IP addresses to get it working again. it is weird but it works.
