vpnc as non-root user

If i run
sudo vpnc

everything works great.

however, just 'vpnc' says i cant bind to port 500, which is understandable. I was told to add "Local Port 1026" to my /etc/vpnc.conf, but when I do that, it seems to connect to the vpn, but my connections dont actually work (the computer i need to ssh into doesn't respond at all). Why would this be?

Also, the first time i run sudo vpnc after i've restarted my machine, it connects, everything works fine, but I cant use my local internet connection. If i sudo vpnc-disconnect and sudo vpnc again, everything works as it should !!??
