network-manager, vpn: no/slow connection, options not saved (debian squeeze)
 
Hi All,

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

Any ideas?

Cheers,
Mike.

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:
ping linuxquestions.com gives:

traceroute linuxquestions.com gives

However, browsing doesn't work. Neither epiphany nor iceweasel load a page (seem to be running on idle).

Any ideas?.

Thanks,
Mike.
