SonicWall Global VPN Client, Acquiring IP...
Trying to get SonicWall Global VPN Client working on vista, i kept getting stuck at "Acquring IP".  Adding the program to the windows firewall made no difference, nor did opening port 443 as has been suggested by others.  What did work was disabling IPv6 on the virtual adapter. 
Start->Control Panel->Network and Internet->Network and Sharing Center->Mange network connections page. Select SonicWALL Virtual Adapter and right click on properties.  Untick IPv6 and you should be good to go.  i didn't have to configure my router or anything to get this to work.

Update Sept 2008

Install the latest client from Sonicwall and this problem goes away, the virtual network adapter is automatically disabled when not in use.
