I suspect your problem is in trying to initiate the AFS session PRIOR to=20
the VPN connection. Or, at least it's a point to start trouble-shooting.
You might want to try killing your AFS service, starting your VPN=20
connection, then start the AFS service back up. Generate your tokens, and=20
see if things work as expected.
Or, get your VPN service to start up prior to login, so AFS service is=20
starting up with the IP address the VPN is providing.
If AFS doesn't work starting it up after VPN connection, then I'm not sure. =
However, I've run AFS on systems with VPN client connected. And, starting=20
service AFTER I'd connected VPN, it worked fine.
