I tried to use the new VPN Client and couldn't log in. The client
connected and started to authenticate, but . . . I'm on a WinXP fully
patched PC with Novell Client 4.9.1 SP5. My firewall is off, I have a
router and I'm on comcast broadband. I reinstalled the prior version
(3.8.16) and connected right away.

Here is part of my IKE log files for the period using the newest VPN
client.
