Alas, this is a multi-boot system where the Linux OS is installed - so no chance of that :-(

I've just determined that it might not be a problem with vpnc..,as such. I got an ethernet
connection to work just now, so it looks as if its just down to now vpnc is handling my wifi
interface, for some reason. 

As I said originally, this **was** working, and now its stopped for some reason. I'm now
fairly certain that its not got anything to do with vpnc natively, as I used the same vpnc
conf file to successfully access the office over ethernet.

I'll keep at it..,

Thanks for your assistance!

Regards,

S Roberts
