Comment 1 Dan Williams 2008-04-16 12:54:20 EDT
Are you sure your password is correct?  I think if the server rejects you once,
and if vpnc is running in non-interactive mode, it will just quit.  See
do_phase_2_xauth() in vpnc.c.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2008-04-16 13:24:14 EDT
What exactly do you have to kill to get it to ask for the password again?
Killing all of:
- NetworkManager
- nm-vpnc-server
- nm-system-settings
- nm-applet

does not help.
Comment 3 Dan Williams 2008-04-16 15:19:04 EDT
you get to remove the password from the keyring with gnome-keyring-manager.  you
can also see the password there unobfuscated to ensure that it's correct.
