Problem On Hardy Heron, vpn connection keeps dropping.
Solution Check /etc/network/interfaces for misconfiguration of wireless card.
Problem On update to Hardy Heron, vpn connection on the wireless breaks down. vpnc-connect doest not set up connection, and exits giving variously as “VPNC started in background…” or “No reply from server…”.
Solution Some issue in /etc/vpnc/vpnc-script, I don’t care what, just replace it with the old vpnc-script. This problem is not specific to Boston University connection.
