I am Running FC3 with kernel 2.6.10-1.770, on a dell latitude d600 laptop. I have turned off ipv6 from both the firefox browser settings and the modprobe.conf file. When i use a wired connection (eth0) and run the cisco vpn client (4.6), my connection is really really slow (evolution and firefox take ages to connect and sometimes just timeout). But i can ping the servers which are in the vpn network without a problem. I dont have this issue when i use the wireless connection (eth1) and then use vpn.
The browser mostly sits there waiting for a response from the web server. I can ping the webserver and get a response, i can even telnet to the webserver address and port 80. I can do a traceroute to the webservers name and it does show me the route.
Can someone please let me know if this is a known issue and if there is a way to get this to work ?
Thanks in advance for your help with this.
