Hey Jacoo,

I actually tracked this down a while back and forgot to post the solution, my apologies. This was actually a problem on my end. I had previously configured some updated firewall rules that weren't permitting the traffic necessary to establish the connection. I found this out by disabling the firewall and then adding the correct rules.

It is, however, somewhat frustrating that they error produced is so generic. Nonetheless, I'm up and VPN'ing from Leopard w/certificates  no problem.
