ActiveX VPN client - is there an equivalent for the mac?

    Our IT department is switching to Cisco VPN concentrator, and the VPN
    client is loaded to the client via a web page. I guess it's loading an
    activeX client. This is a great solution for PC users because the IT
    department doesn't have to install individual VPN clients.

    I need to connect a Mac client. Obviously the activeX version doesn't
    work. Is there a workaround? Our IT department is a little leery of
    Macs, but if the solution is something simple, with no ongoing
    maintenance, they might go for it. Any ideas.

    Has anyone even heard of this activeX format VPN client? What's its
    official name? If I knew that I could at least do some more googling.

    Thanks

    According to the Cisco docs, the Mac browser "safari" is supported. Is
    there any additional setup that the Cisco admin has to do?

    Is there anything I must do? I've tried safari and firefox, turned off
    popup blocking and installed the latest Java.

    Thanks for any help.
