We have one (I believe it is a 3000) in our colo facility. I just recently 
colaborated with a co-worker in getting vpnc working on our non-Windoes 
machines. He is on Mandrake and I'm on FreeBSD 6.2. The following config 
is what worked for me. Of course, you will have to substitute your info 
for 'IPSec gateway', 'IPSec ID', and 'IPSec obfuscated secret' or 'Xauth 
username' and 'Xauth password'. We use the secret for authentication. So 
the username and password are specified as nothing so the prompt doesn't 
come up when starting the VPN connection.


IPSec gateway
IPSec ID my-ipsec-id
IPSec obfuscated secret the_obfuscated_secret
# empty strings here for uname and pass get rid of prompts
Xauth username ''
Xauth password ''
Vendor cisco
Local Port 10000
