Fernando,

	No - This is not a feature we currently use, so I haven't messed

	Though, it looks like you're already working with Peter on this and
he's made a lot more code changes...

Hey, just wondering, did you fix TCP/UDP problem in OpenVpn
configuration page? That would be great, because I woulden't need to
change the cd image before using the new version.

Thanks

Fernando
