[VPN] cisco vpn3000, firewall policy, & linux client

I need to get connect to a cisco vpn3000 concentrator vpn in linux.
I got everything working fine with cisco's vpn client on my win98 machine.
but when I use the same config file I used in windows with the cisco
vpn client for linux, the concentrator disconnects from me during the
'securing connection' phase.
The admins in charge of the vpn3000 report this is caused by the
concentrator 'pushing a firewall policy to the client. this feature is
currently only supported in a windows environment.'
does anyone know what they're talking about? and more importantly, is
there some way I can get around this issue with my poor linux box? I'm
willing to try FreeS/WAN or some other client if necessary.
The irony is that I need to be able to access 2 linux boxes on the
vpn! so it's quite annoying it only works in windows. :)
thanks in advance.
