Hmm, I guess actually reading everything in an email helps to get the real
ideas that someone is trying to say :/
When I need to use a vpn in kubuntu I use the program KVpnc. It works very
well for me, never drops to what I connect with. I do not know of any KDE
applet that works. If I had to guess, I'd purge the KDE network applet
(after backup), install the gnome applet and see if that works. I would
imagine that it will not show up in the system tray, but that is just my
half-empty part talking.

the support of a cause we believe to be just."
