The best method for making this work seems to be a 32-bit firefox (even on 64-bit CentOS/RHEL). The trick is that the NC installer launches xterm directly to prompt for a root password – so the following RPMs should be installed before launching the SSL VPN site:

* xterm
* firefox.i686
* libXtst.i686
* libcurl.i686
* gtk2-engines.i686
* alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i686
* PackageKit-gtk-module.i686
