I use a similar setup (the second connection goes actually through the first
one). The problem is that vpnc binds its UDP port to 0.0.0.0, meaning any
network device. So the second instance cannot bind to the same port again.
To avoid this, I patched vpnc some time ago and added a --bindaddr
<address-to-bind-to> option, but AFAIR it was not included in the release.
But you might still find it in the list archives.
Of course, you then have to take care of the routes yourself, AFAIK the
vpnc-connect scripts are not designed for two concurrent connections (hence
the pid-file conflict).
