Description David Woodhouse 2015-01-07 10:28:41 UTC
OpenConnect takes measures to ensure that when it reconnects to establish the VPN after authentication, it connects to the *same* server that it authenticated too. Anything else isn't going to work.

Unfortunately, it only does this if it spots more than one result in the DNS lookup, and realises that there's a round-robin. Otherwise, it just continues to use the hostname.

This doesn't work when there's a trick DNS server returning different results each time for load-balancing or other reasons. We need to use the specific IP address *every* time.

Fixed upstream by http://git.infradead.org/users/dwmw2/openconnect.git/commitdiff/4e2ab55b1a
