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.

then it could be one of the bugs in earlier versions, are you able to get the current release?

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...
