Note: Mac OS 10.4.8, released 9/29, resolved this incompatibiliy in the testing we have done so far.
Note: Updating to Mac OS 10.4.8 resolves this problem.
Installing WiscVPN version 4.9.00.0050 on Core 2 Duo based Mac Pros and iMacs will result in a kernel panic on restart/shutdown.
The current WiscVPN Mac client (version 4.9.00.0050) is not compatible with the build of Mac OS 10.4.7 shipping on new Mac Pros and iMacs with Intel Xeon and Core 2 Duo processors, respectively. With the WiscVPN client installed, these systems will kernel panic on restart and shutdown. There is no work-around for this problem; the client must be uninstalled.
