VPN failing on Ubuntu 10.04


HI Guys

I hope that someone can help me out.

I have just upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04 and need to setup VPN connections to clients.


After configuring one of the vpn connections, I tried to connect but the connection fails with no specific errors.


Looking at the /var/log/messages file I get the entries as follows:
ay 20 13:52:28 machielr-laptop pppd[3362]: Plugin /usr/lib/pppd/2.4.5//nm-pptp-pppd-plugin.so loaded.

I am a newbie to Linux vpn connections as I always worked on windows for this, so I would really appreciate any help with this.

Hi Machiel,
Can you please give a little bit more detail on your setup and the command you issued giving you these errors?

VPN failing on Ubuntu 10.04

HI, well I used the Gui setup tool when you click on the networking icon and select create VPN. I am connected to the internet using a 3G usb device which works fine. However after entering all the vpn details required, and I select to connect to the VPN then it fails. The errors produced was then found in the /var/log/messages file.
