Ok, I tried the terminal and it asked for my password and then IPSec gateway address.
So it seems to work. Great. That problem is solved, thanks!
Is it easy to use? Do I just follow the steps and enter the info?
Do I have to enter the info every time?
Is there another GUI application that people can recommend? Open VPN maybe? I used the cisco client on windows and mac and didn't really like it.

Maybe Shrewsoft? https://www.shrew.net/software
I just need to be able to connect to my office's VPN sometimes. Usually crucial, time-sensitive times. But it's up to me to figure out how.
Another idea: are the non-gui VPNs hard to use? Do I just start them with the sudo command and then input the relevant information when requested, then just go use my browser normally to access my company's site? Then reset and quit termainal when I'm done?
(followup- went and tried vpnc in terminal, entered group username etc, seemed ok but failed every time when I entered group password. Tried several times. Still looking for solution, GUI or non, but just need a basic client.)
