There's one I've heard of called PopTop that is supposed to work with
Microsoft's PPTP VPN system. As for Cisco, there is the VPN client, but
I don't like compiling their modules into my kernel. The one I use with
the Ciscos at work is called vpnc
( http://www.unix-ag.uni-kl.de/~massar/vpnc/ ) and it works well, only
requiring the tun/tap driver in the kernel. OpenVPN, while it's my
favorite, is only compatible with itself.

I agree, which is why my OpenMoKo will probably have vpnc and OpenVPN on it.
