hi

is it possible to run 2 cisco vpn clients
on the same machine?
both should be connected at the same time
to the different remote server.
I use vpnclient-linux-4.0.Rel-k9

regards
cccc

I don't see why not. They're just different interfaces. Should work fine.

thanks

but there is a script to keep the vpn client
up an running all the time:

----------------------------------------------------
#!/bin/sh

ps ax grep vpnclient grep -v grep

if [ "$?"!= "0" ] ; then

# restart PROCESS

/etc/init.d/vpnclient_init restart

fi

----------------------------------------------------

I've add this entries to /etc/rc.d/vpnclient_init

cp /etc/CiscoSystemsVPNClient/vpn.template /etc/CiscoSystemsVPNClient/Profiles/vpn.pcf
sleep 10
/usr/local/bin/vpnclient connect vpn & > /dev/null

but how will work with 2 vpn clients in my case?
I don't want to stop one and start another.
and both have to always run permanently.
any idea?

regards

I just asked a Cisco tech I work with this, and he says no since they both use the same ports.

Shouldn't matter. You're connecting to different servers.

cccc, just copy the vpninit script to vpninit2, and fire it with the new profile. Should fire fine.
