Hey thanks for the advice. I managed to solve the issue in a different manner. There is a script called ip-down in /etc/ppp. This script gets called each time the ppp interface goes down. Since there was a 400ms gap before the machine froze. Explicitly disconnecting the VPN worked for me.
But now the problem is that if i try reconnecting my vpnclient it fails for a few attempts.
There is another issue where i would appreciate some help...
the Cisco Client installs itself in /etc/CiscoSystemsVPNClient. Now my root partition is a read-only partition and I plan to keep it that way. Those files which need to be written too (eg. the profile files) can be placed in a diff partition with a sym link. But this does not work..
Has anyone tried a different location for the Profile and ini files other than the standard locations.
