Yes, our IPsec works fine with cisco routers (etc) operating within
the standards.

People wanting to use the "vpn client" with a conc. 3k often need to
use the cisco auth and config extensions to log into a corporate vpn
that insists on them.  Cisco's use of xauth and "group passwords" is
scarily insecure and shouldn't be used, but that argument is of little
benefit if you're only in a position to change the client.
