    Error / reason 442 in Cisco VPN Client under Windows Vista

    Hi there,

    i'm new to this newsgroup, but i really cant stand this anymore: i
    have a Cisco VPN Client (the newest version: 5.0.02.0090) installed
    under Windows Vista Business. I use it to connect to my university
    network which is the only way for me to access the internet.

    The problem is that every 3 hours, the VPN gateway kicks me out of the
    network (many campus networks do that). Which is in itself not a big
    problem ... but error 442 makes this a terribly annoying thing.

    Usually when my computer boots up, the connection works flawlessly.
    But from the time on i get first kicked out of the network and i have
    to reconnect, it's basically pure luck if i'm able to reconnect to the
    server. Sometimes i have to wait more than 10 minutes until error 442
    forgets that it still exists and the gateway lets me in again.

    Does ANY of you have ANY tips for me what i can do to finally be able
    to solve this problem? I have tried almost everything that i can find,
    but so far no solution has worked RELIABLY for me.

    I'm also open to using new VPN clients, but usually the problem with
    that is that i cannot get them to connect to the VPN gateway (which is
    obviously a Cisco Concentrator) because i do not have the correct
    configuration settings. Configuration with the Cisco client is very
    easy and straightforward, unfortunately that is not the case for most
    other VPN clients that i have tried out.

    Any you wanna know what the solution of the IT department of my
    university is to that problem? "We are sorry, but we wont provide any
    other VPN clients, please use Windows XP instead."

    That is a joke, seriously ...


    I'd really appreciate if anyone could help me :-)

    Thanks a lot in advance,
    InsaNito

    In fact, i've tried out everything so far and nothing had worked, but
    i've finally found a solution: the new Cisco beta client v.
    5.0.03.0300. Fixes the error 442, so the connection works perfectly
    for me so far, just have some minor problems with it, but all in all
    i'm satisfied :-)
