Solution
Cisco had dropped support for DES with the 4.0(2) VPN client’s release. So the VPN Client doesn’t support combination of  cipher/hash (in this case, DES/SHA1)
But the VPN Client continues to support DES/MD5. However, support for DES/SHA is no longer available, and Release 3.7 and later VPN Clients cannot connect to any central-site device group that is configured for (or proposing) DES/SHA. The VPN Client must either connect to a different group or the system administrator for the central-site device must change the configuration from DES/SHA to DES/MD5 or another supported configuration.
