I'm wondering if there's a way to use 'suid' for the Cisco vpnclient. I see discussion on the web regarding versions that had the bit set by default. I'm using v4.8.00 (0490), and when I try to set either the suid or sgid bits I get the following error:
vpnclient cannot have setuid or setgid permissions.
When I run it as user I get:
Cisco Systems VPN Client Version 4.8.00 (0490) Copyright (C) 1998-2005 Cisco Systems, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Client Type(s): Linux Running on: Linux 22.214.171.124-21.11-default #1 Thu Feb 2 20:54:26 UTC 2006 i686 Config file directory: /etc/opt/cisco-vpnclient privsep: unable to drop privileges: group set failed. The application was unable to communicate with the VPN sub-system.HP Pavilion dv6000t

The real question is what time is it and why the hell am I still screwing around with my computer?

I got the same message after installing the client on OpenSUSE 10.2 and trying to start the client. Running 'chmod 4111 /opt/cisco-vpnclient/bin/cvpnd' (as root) resolved the problem. Thanks.
