Epiphany uses the same HTML rendering engine as Firefox does, so the output 
should be identical.  However, this whole "VPN" thing seems to be dependant 
on the Windows networking API, not something you can use with anything but IE 
running on Windows (and hopefully wine).

The former.  Hopefully the "VPN" program will work fine under wine with IE.
