  I did not know that there was a FreeBSD version for the Cisco client. 
If you downloaded the Linux version -- it won't work b/c it loads a 
kernel module and thus won't work under the Linux binary compatibility 
  The vpnc port works fine for me, although I don't know the model no. 
of the device I connect to. If there are any limitations on what models 
work with the port, I'm sure there is some information about it on the 
webpage of the tool.
  The .pcf file is human readable, you can easily extract all 
information you need to set up your tunnel. If you have the "GroupPwd" 
in encoded form, search the internet for a "decoder". I don't have the 
link at hand, but there definitely is a site where you can enter the 
hash and have it spit out the clear phrase.
