Description of problem:
vpnclient-linux-3.6.Rel-k9 compiles against kernel-source (some warnings
'concatenation of string literals with __FUNCTION__ is deprecated'), and the
resulting module installs [though it does taint the kernel :( ].It finds and
connects to the VPN gateway. But once connected, all networking seems dead.
Remains dead even after stopping client. Can you work w/cisco on it?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.compile and install client
2.run 'vpnclient connect'
3.try to look up any host against internal DNS server, or do any other networking.
Actual Results: resquest times out
I understand that this may not be your fault at all, but the Cisco VPN is widely
deployed enough that I wanted to be sure you were aware.
The binary only kernel module Cisco ships is unsupported and indeed known broken.
Thanks for your response. I fully appreciate that their software is not
supported by you, and will of course bother them if problems crop up again.
But, just as another data point of info for you, the rawhide kernel 2.4.18-10.99
seems to work fine.
