I think it was you John that told me about VPNing in. I used to have all kinds of issues in the past on those old releases and with my 8310. I would have to call the help desk and they would have to reset my account and then it would stop in the middle and I would have to call them back, endless cycle of distress. I guess now that I have gotten into the habit of doing it this way and it works so well I will probably just stay with it as is.
