HI

As above.  We have tried versions 5.0.07.0290 & 5.0.07.0410, with and without anti-virus (sophos 10) and the machine has all windows updates.

Ideas?

The VPN client has it's own firewall built in which can be disabled by renaming the extensions of two files in c:\windows\system32 called vsdata and vsdatant.  Just append .old onto the file and give that a shot.

Were you able to acquire the message that Bluescreened?

In device manager you can also disable the vsdatant this way
"devices by connection" in the device manager, then select "view"> "show hidden devices".
from the right panel near the bottom, you can find it, right click the "vsdatant" then select disable. Reboot and try again.
