That's not surprising, if the script hasn't run and set up the
networking for you.

OK, so you *can* run it and the script itself gives you an error. That's
precisely the output I expected when you run it. Not the 'No such file
or directory' and failing even to run the script which you reported in
your original mail.

But Kevin spotted something I didn't — it is /etc/vpnc/
or /etc/vpnc/vpnc-script ? It looks like you have one, and you asked for
the other.

No, I suspect you just need to stop typing and start using cut/paste or
tab-completion so you don't get filenames wrong :)
