Thought I'd reply to the list with a follow-up:
- If I uninstall my Cisco VPN client software, the delay goes down to 16
sec. Perhaps a newer version will work better with SP2.
- My PDC and backup PDC are dual-homed, and the client is (erroneously)
trying to contact each one of their private interfaces, with 4 second
timeouts - hence the 16 sec delay above. I logged this on my firewall.
I'm going to post separately about dealing with a multi-homed situation.
