Restarting MacOS Kernel Extensions

I find that both Parallels and the CiscoVPN client get confused with all the changing I do on my network (using wired, wireless, Verizon card, etc). Sometimes it’s tough to get it all sorted out again. I’ve gotten it pretty consistent now. I just restart the appropriate kernel extensions and it all works out.

Before I run Parallels, I run this command in a terminal:

sudo SystemStarter restart Parallels

Likewise, I can kick Cisco’s VPN extensions with a similar command:

sudo SystemStarter restart CiscoVPN
