Hi Andy,

I've pretty much out of ideas now then, sorry :(

If you've opened a case with TAC, you may just have to wait for them to sort it out with you. I would press them to find out what that state of "wiccn" means.. If it's not a valid state, then it's coming from within the IOS code somewhere and they should be able to trace it and find where. Keep requesting escalations on your case until it gets to someone who knows/cares.

You could try downgrading to a different IOS, unless you definitely need something in the special release you are using to make it work.

If it's only tunnels from one provider, is it from all of their LAC, or a subset of their LAC ?
