I want to switch from the UCI web proxy to a VPN on a Linux machine
before the web proxy is disabled in June.
The NACS help page states:

Is this correct? Few people use 2.4 kernels anymore. We need something
compatible with the 2.6 kernel. Please let me know when you've
updated the VPN client to work with Linux 2.6.
