Just to report it, the 2.6.8-1.521 kernel breaks the Cisco VPN client
a very odd way.
The current network configuration og the laptop I'm using, is a wireless
network card, and an normal network card (wirefull).
The funny thing is, that when i start the client on the wireless
interface, everything is fine, and everything works as it's supposed to.
If i then shifts to the wire, UDP packages suddently isn't comming
throug, but tcp connections work fine. That is, no name server
resolution, but I'm able to ping and access sites with the ip.
I know that the vpn client is Cisco's responsibility, but I thought I
would mention it to you, in case that it points to something gone bad in
the kernel. I have tried to do the same exercises with the -358 kernel
that ships with Fedora, and everything works in this kernel.
Known problem with the Cisco VPN Client and 2.6.x kernels. It is
already in Bugzilla (sorry, I cannot remember the number) and Cisco
are aware of the problem. The problem is in the Cisco binary module,
so only they can fix it (and I believe they are working on it).
The workaround, as you already discovered, is to use a wireless connection...
