VPN on Ubuntu

The Network Manager program is most likely running on your Linux box. You communicate with it by clicking the symbol with two computer-screens somewhere on the toolbar. It might be wise to reboot the machine after filling in the relevant information in Network Manager before trying to enable VPN. For VPN to work you need the network-manager and network-manager-pptp program packages. See also https://studentwiki.uib.no/tiki-index.php?page=vpn_ubuntu

Remember that username is user@ansatt.uib.no or user@student.uib.no. Gateway is either vpn-ansatt.uib.no or vpn-student.uib.no

    Frankly I don’t know. Is it a problem? If you like you can write me more about what it is that you want and what you don’t want pptp to do. If you found a solution yourself I am also interested to know.

    Hi, thanks for this informative post. I just wonder how I can limit pptp from “answering” on queries from ip-addresses in the local intranet (ie. 10.8.x.y)
