My question relates to the solution posted here in this forum:

This appears to be the only solution I have found in over a year trying that actually appears to be working, so thanks! However, ...

I believe I have followed each of these steps outlined in the above referenced answer and it appears I may be connected but I can't really tell.

As one can see from the output from terminal below, it appears I am able to stop and restart the shrewsoft-vpn-client. I press "c" as instructed and terminal reports "attached to key daemon..."

How do I know if I am connected? Terminal does not respond to any of the listed commands from 'help'. I can control+c to get the prompt back, stop, restart, and connect and get the "attached to key daemon.." response. How does one reference this connection, if it is a connection?
