Hi,
I have asked this question a couple days ago and haven't gotten any response :(

I have a laptop with 4gb ram and i have ubuntu jaunty installed on it. I browsed online including this forum and upgraded to linux server kernel to accommodate the 4gb ram.

I had installed the vpnclient before that and was working just fine. Now, it now longer works via the menu.

and the menu points to /opt/cisco/vpn/bin/vpnui and when I type that in the terminal, i get gThread error: can be initialized only once.

Not sure what to do.

Thanks,
Vishwa

The VPN service may be automatically starting on boot. What is the output of:

ifconfig

Humm, there goes that theory.

I highly suggest bringing this before the Cisco folks here: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/secursw/ps2308/tsd_products_support_series_home.html or here: http://forums.cisco.com/eforum/servlet/NetProf?page=main as they will be more familiar with the vpn client you're using.
