This is my first post
I am currently facing on having access to an external (with external I mean I cannot control it ) VPN.
At this moment, I am renting a CISCO PIX 501. The network administrator from my hosting provider, set the VPN client access up when I gave him the conf.
Now, due we are just start ups... we want (need) to reduce the cost of the hosting. For doing so, we would like to connect via software to VPN and stop paying the CISCO PIX 501.
My point is... I am newbie to this... how do I get my FreeBSD server connected as client to this VPN (cisco VPN 3080) ?
The VPN doc from the VPN owner says:

Any idea of how to get that done just with my FreeBSD box ( the same of the application I need to connect over the network ) and replace the Cisco PIX ?
Thanks a lot and sorry if all this sounded obvious ....
