PC upgrade to Win2k causes vpn client problems

Hi all,

I recently upgraded to Win2k from Win98 on my pc. I have version 3.5 of the Cisco Systems VPN client. Everything worked fine on 98. However, now, I cannot get an ftp session to work properly, nor can I connect with some proprietary third party software. I can connect telnet to the unix box behind the firewall, but I need to transfer files also.

The ftp session (windows ftp) asks for a login and password, but if I try to do anything else, such as a ls, it comes back with an "Can't build data connection", same if I try to transfer a file.

The other program works on port 10001. It will not connect at all now, also did before.

I cannot ping my pc's vpn assigned ip address from the unix box in a telnet session, nor the static address given by my provider (dsl). Funny thing, with 98, I noticed that the network IP settings showed my vpn ip address ( whenever I was logged into the vpn. Now it does not, just my provider assigned address (

Any ideas? My network admin is stumped.

Thanks much!
