    Cisco VPN Gina

      Hi,

      We are running 5.1.8 EEPC & are having problems with machines with Cisco VPN clients after encryption. XP is the only OS deployed with a mixture of sp2 & sp3 machines.

      The usual message is "The cisco vpn subsystem was not able to start. You will not be able to create a VPN connection begore logon. Please contact your network adminstrator for help", in the past we have fixed this by changing a registry value:

      \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Cisco Systems\VPN Client\

      Change the value of the DWORD GinaInstalled from 1 to 0

      Sometimes we then get a blue screen on reboot & have to remove the vpn client in safe mode. However, this is occurring more & more & I'd like to get to the bottom of the cause & prevent it from happening in the first place.

      The SBGINA.ini file refers to:

      [CSGina.W2K.LogonDialog]
      ;This section for Ciscos Gina for Windows 2000 which is the same as the standard one, but
      ;has a different extention.
      OS.MajorVersion=5
      OS.MinorVersion=0
      OrigDll.Name=CSGINA.DLL
      Window.Title=Any
      Window.Class=#32770
      Dlg.CtrlId.OK=1
      Dlg.CtrlId.UserName=1502
      Dlg.CtrlId.Password=1503
      Dlg.CtrlId.Domain=1504
      Option.CaptureFromDlg=No
      Option.EntryMode.UserName=0
      Option.EntryMode.Password=0
      Option.EntryMode.Domain=2

      SBgina.ini doesnt mention XP & cisco anywhere, is this why the problem is occuring ? OR is there something else we should be setting ?

      Any help greatly apprecitated.

      Thanks.
