Hello John,

I believe you can insert your freeswan call to
shutdown as a priority task in your
/etc/pcmcia/network 'stop)' clause. And I don't think
this'll cause any problems. What card manager does
anyway is first, free the modules of ALL loads, then
uninstall them during the stop event. And freeswan is
just any other network load. As soon as freeswan is
down, card manager should have no problem unloading
the modules. Please do try the unload sequence you
mentioned on your mail, as it is correct. I believe it
will work out just fine.
