I'm not familiar with the newer VPN clients, but does it need
recompiling to support the latest kernel? Also, does anything show up
Yes, it does need to recompile, but this is taken care of in the
installation of the vpn client. And when you upgrade the kernel, you
just need to run the installation again. And the kernel module works
fine when the wireless connection is used, and on tcp trafic in the
wirefull, but not udp traffic on the wirefull...
And nothing shows up in the /var/log/messages....
