After I take out the PLUTO_VERSION check (2.4.15 responds with  
PLUTO_VERSION=1.1) the _updown script creates the proper route, and  
the windows client can connect.  Have not tied the Mac client. ;) Is  
there any particular change in the script that fixes the issue?  Is  
2.4.15 required, or can I stick with 2.4.9 (with some security fixes)?

Thanks very much,
