Cisco VPN Client Misery

By rolnhgr ·
After installing Cisco VPN Client 4.06.04 on an IBM 200 server running WindowsXP Media Center, I go to launch the app, it appears to start connecting, then the machine reboots. This happens every time. The connection is SBC DSL, and the firewall is F-Secure.

I'm running the same version of the software on my home computer with no issues under WindowsXP Pro, SP2, DSL connection with a static IP routed through a proxy server.

I've tried a similar software configuration on an IBM 600 laptop, with the same rebooting problem. Thinking it may be something hardware related, I loaded the VPN client on my Netfinity-4500R, running Windows 2000 Advanced Server - no issues.

Anyone ever see this problem? Any ideas to get it working?

Firewall incompatibility - known solution

by iansavell In reply to Have the same problem on ...

The reboot is actually a BSOD crash but your PC is configured to reboot automatically if a BSOD happens.

The BSOD is caused by a known incompatibility between the Cisco VPN firewall and F-Secure. The solution is to disable the Cisco firewall. See the following article:

Posting this because I found this question before I found the solution - might speed up someone's fix later!
