I'm trying to compile Cisco VPN Client and recive such an error, could you please help me to get this working ?

Cisco Systems VPN Client Version 4.8.01 (0640) Linux Installer
Directory where binaries will be installed [/usr/local/bin]
Automatically start the VPN service at boot time [yes]no
Directory containing linux kernel source code [/lib/modules/2.6.9-42.ELsmp/build ]
* Binaries will be installed in "/usr/local/bin".
* Modules will be installed in "/lib/modules/2.6.9-42.ELsmp/CiscoVPN".
* The VPN service will *NOT* be started automatically at boot time.
* Kernel source from "/lib/modules/2.6.9-42.ELsmp/build" will be used to build the module.

Is the above correct [y]

Have you already tried the latest Cisco VPN client release, 4.8.02 which can be downloaded from here:


Additionally: What's the output of `uname -a` on your system?

How much should it cost to set up VPN between two Win2003 servers? I have been pulling my hair out trying to configure what should be a simple VPN between two Win2003 Servers that I have administrator to. I can't seem to see the folders on the other server, or any anything else for that matter. I am considering asking for remote assistance.
