Description of problem:
From Mailing list:


when i updated to vpnc 0.3.3 and tried to launch i got the following error:

Error: either "to" is duplicate, or "64" is a garbage.

To resolve this i had to change

sed 's/cache//;s/metric[0-9]\+ [0-9]\+//g'


sed 's/cache//;s/metric [0-9]\+ [0-9]\+//g'

within the  fix_ip_get_output function.


This change in /etc/vpnc/vpnc-script was necessary for me to connect to my campus VPN.  Before it would make the connection just hang.  It works now after this change.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install vpnc and configure it
2.sudo vpnc; get error message firefox

Actual Results:  no web page displayed

Expected Results:  should be connected

Your solution would break on other machines.

More correct would be: sed 's/cache//;s/metric[ 0-9]\+//g'

Comment 2 Tomas Mraz 2005-06-15 18:21:08 UTC
Should be fixed in the next vpnc builds for devel and FC4 extras.
