I don't have a Mac so I can't confirm it works, but have you tried hooking
your Mac straight to your ISP at home?  I've seen some firewalls and NAT
device configurations that don't play well with VPN clients.

Does your Cisco VPN admin see your computer connecting?  Any errors noted
on either side (you might need to enable or increase logging)?
