Steps

2. sudo apt-get remove resolvconf
3. Import .pcf
4. reboot
5. connect, enter password in password window
6. error "invalid VPN secrets"

also tried enabling/disabling Dead Peer Detection option but still no success

:confused:

Solved . but not using VPN gui client

created a test.config file
IPSec gateway <gateway IP>
IPSec ID <CLIENT ID >
IPSec secret <CLIENT PASSWORD>
Xauth username <user id>

to connect
sudo vpnc-connect test.config
enter the password

to disconnect
sudo vpnc-disconnect

Now that you solved it does the GUI client work?

FYI to all - A reboot made the GUI version work for me. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1564642
