I had troubles getting my VPN connection to work on MBP running Lion. As you surely know by now, original CiscoVPN client does not work at all on 64-but MBP with Lion so VPNC is the only choice. My VPN gateway was Cisco 1811, its IOS VPN (plus not very collaborative IT department ;) ).
Authentication simply did not work, I have tried everything I could. I have tried VPNC on Linux (Ubuntu 11.04) and surprisingly it worked with exactly the same config file. Puzzled, I have recompiled manually VPNC on Linux and Mac and found that Ubuntu seems to be using the original vpnc 0.5.3 AND a huge 217K+ patch to it. So I took this source code from Ubuntu, compiled it on Mac and almost instantly got my VPN working (had to force local port to 0 in the config file - I believe the default port 500 was already used by native client).
I do believe macports should have the vpnc source code updated with the same patch...these 217Kb are not only comments.
This is where I have downloaded the source code from: http://packages.ubuntu.com/natty/net/vpnc
