    Care to elaborate what VPN client you are using on your Windows machine? If using an IPSec client, there's a pre-shared key or certificate somewhere.

    You may get better results (ie: more help) if you follow one of these little tips when posting a new thread.

    And the guy asked what VPN client you're using. Answer that and you may find your solution.

    What program do you launch to connect to the VPN on your Windows machine? Is it a Cisco VPN Client, SecuRemote, or is it just another network connection listed in your control panel?

    Right click that thing and click Properties. Get as much detail from it as you can (such as PPTP, L2TP, etc).
