The first time i remotely connected, the login to the server and
availability of its contents went w/o a hitch. The second and
subsequent times the VPN client reported a version mismatch between NICI
and VP tunnel and that the NICI kernel was not found. Both NICI 1.7.0
and 2.6.0 were installed during the VPN client install and not removed.
I resolved the issue by uninstalling and re-installing everything,
which is hardly a longterm solution. Since I've seen reference in this
forum to the problem, I'm concerned it will reoccur.
