network-manager, vpn: no/slow connection, options not saved (debian squeeze)
Using debian squeeze and trying to connect to a VPN. network manager is running and I've installed its pptp extension.
nm shows it's connected to the VPN but nothing is loaded.
Also, when I untick the authentication options they are not saved, that is:
from the VPN connection window->Advanced->Authentication->untick CHAP->OK
clicking Advanced->Authentication shows CHAP is TICKED
Here are some uddates which will hopefully help crack this one:
The VPN connection definitely works: I can ping and ssh after connecting with the VPN and names are resolved:
