I've tried with two other Macbooks, one also with Mountain Lion
(10.8.1), the other one with Lion (10.7.4).
The other Mountain Lion had the exact same behaviour as mine (also
10.8.1), the one with Lion installed 'only' complained about not being
able to verify the server certificate.
The logs here show that the Mac and the VPN server were at least
interchanging certificates.

Both machines were using the same generated Apple profile.

I also found this topic in an Apple Forum :
I'm wondering if that problem is related.

kind regards,
