I use Cisco VPN Client v5.0.00.0090 on several computers for remote access.  Suddenly today I cannot open the VPN Client.  Al  it will do is gives "status: disconnected"  I cannot open the panel to modify or add or change.  The software still works on other computers on this network!  Any Ideas?

I reboot as a first course of action, but occasionally, I do need to uninstall and reinstall the client software.

The only thing that I can quantify with this problem is that the computer i am running that does NOT work has just had the BIOS upgraded.  It is a Thinkpad T61 and I upgraded to BIOS 2.26-1.08. _ wonder if i can do a rollback?

I rolledback my BIOS - reinstalled VPM 5.0 - problem resolved!

Can you call that a solution?
Why not upgrade to the new client where security is a concern?
By rolling back your BIOS and using a client with known bugs and issues, renders the machine at risk?

The solution I asked for was to get the VPN Client 5.0 working as it had before.  I asked to have any suggestion.  The only thing you suggested were items i had already tried and they did no good.  I wanted to kep the same remote platform consistant in the company.  So going any further was not what I asked!

and you believe that upgrading a single BIOS is consistent?

But only on one machine that you failed to mention, ok then, well done...
