ill confirm that it does work properly.  you should be able to set up a config 
file (default is to put it in /usr/local/etc/vpnc/) for your site.  it might 
look like this:

IPSec gateway xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
IPSec ID VPN3000UserGroup
IPSec secret VPN3000UsrGrpPasswd
Xauth username domain\username

ours, auths against a windows 2000 server's radius (which in turn auths 
against the active directory account).  if you set up usernames and password 
directly in the vpn3000, i would assume you would put that in the username.

i just give the command (as root): 'vpnc sitename' and it chooses 
sitename.conf from /usr/local/etc/vpnc.

can you give some info about whats not working?
