The screenshot showed how I set up the VPN under the "VPN Site 
Configuration" and "Policy" as and having 
the box for "Obtain remote network topology " unchecked. Then we did a 
route command and with the VPN connected, there were no entries in the 
IP routing table.

By browsing the network, I mean that with the 64 bit install, I could 
sit at home and get to any directory I wanted at the office. With the 32 
bit Feisty install, I now connect but don't see any files or computers. 
Matt Linehan thinks it's because we didn't get route information.

Could be all I need to do is check the "Obtain remote network topology " 
box, but we didn't before and I was just following our old instructions 
we wrote for the Windows version.

Thanks again. Don't know what happened to my screenshot. It's not in my 
out file either, but it was in the text when I sent it.
