Chuck, I'd recommend you get a DNS name for your VPN concentrator and
use that instead of a dedicated IP address.  Something like  We don't use 'vpn' as part of the DNS name here
but it is something that sounds somewhat like remote access.

Anyway, I don't see it in the registry.  I'll run a scan of my hard
drive to see what turns up.

Subject: [PCTECH] Cisco VPN problem

Hi Folks,


One of your communications providers switched who they use so some of
our IP addresses changed. It was planned so no big deal or it seemed :-)


Part of the change included the IP address for our Cisco PIX VPN. So we
let all remote users know what to change and for 98+ % were fine. On the
others it has been a BEAR. They WILL not connect. The one I did

get to connect I had to COMPLETELY remove the Cisco VPN Client,
Add/Remove AND deleting the subdirectory(s) it created or it remembers
the configuration .


Does anyone know if the IP address is cached, etc. somewhere else ?


Thanks !
