I'm using the BIG-IP f5 vpn client on my MacBookPro. Most of the time it works fine.
Sometimes when my VPN does not exit cleanly I can no longer connect to the VPN. No matter how many times I try to exit, disconnect, turn off my wireless network, or release the dhcp, close my laptop lid. Nothing works.
I get this error message
tunnel server already launched
The only way around this was to reboot my Mac. This has the major drawback of loosing all my open browsers, terminals, folders, applications, etc.
Is there any other way around this issue? So that I can retain all the things that I have opened and am in the middle of? I try not to reboot for weeks or months at a time.
