Connect to Uni VPN on Acer Aspire One
Hey guys, this is my first post
I got an AA1 (running Linpus Lite & Firefox 3) for Uni and can't connect to the campus network. Obviously there's windows & mac installers but no info on linux!
It's a wired VPN,and I know the IP & the proxy settings needed. There was a connection package to install which I had to open with WINE, but whenever I ran this it would say that I wasn't connected to the network (even though the network connections manager recognised the wired connection).
I've tried a couple of things in the terminal (openvpn etc.) and looked around a few forums, but as this is my first Linux computer, I'm a little lost.
Sorry if this isn't enough information - ask and I'll add anything else you think might be relevant.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Is it the cisco VPN client that they provide for windows? If so you can use the vpnc client for linux.
$ sudo yum install vpnc
$ sudo mouspad /etc/vpnc/<myvpn>.conf
Enter the following:
IPSec gateway <my.vpn.gateway> (Your gateway IP or hostname)
IPSec ID <my.gateway.id> (This is your group username)
IPSec secret <mysecret> (Your group password)
Xauth username <username> (your personal username)
Xauth password <password> (your personal password)
Save and close mousepad.
Unzip the file, cd into the directory that was created and copy tun.ko using
$ sudo cp tun.ko /lib/modules/188.8.131.52lw/kernel/drivers/net
Run the Command
Plug in and connect to the network:
$sudo vpnc <myvpn>
This works for me on my wireless uni network.
VPN with PPTP
I have not been able to find anything with my searches and have no clue on how to do this.
I am trying figure out how to configure VPN tunnel to a MS firewall with PPTP with. I am lost as too what I need to install or how to configure it on Acer Aspire One running Linux.
Please point me in the correct direction.
MS VPN might need mppe-128
and you might need to refuse PAP and refuse CHAP in the file /etc/ppp/peers/your_new_connection_name (that leaves CHAP-V2 which is needed for mppe-128 as the only option iirc).
for complete instructions.
newer kernels include the module mppe-128, no need to compile them, but you need pptp-linux.
my working /etc/ppp/peers/name_of_connection (on a debian system connecting to a vanilla MS-box):
pty "pptp url.to.be.connected.to --nolaunchpppd"
If I need to install something for Linpus Lite 1.0.3.E to connect to VPN, what is it?
Or did I type something wrong?
Thanks from the newbie...
