Unfortunately, that isn't really going to help with my connection problems to
Solaris systems which also work fine with 5.6. I am connecting through VPN using
Juniper Networks Network Connect. I wonder if that's what might be causing
issues for 5.8. But I guess it really shouldn't make any difference.

I will try to investigate a bit further.
