Linux and VPN


Hi

I am new to Linux and have just installed Mandrake 10, with kernel 2.6

However on my old laptop with XP, I could simply click on Network connections to create a VPN to the office or customer.

What would I use in Linux to do this ? Any help greatly appreciated.

ciao

Depends. Check the connection properties to see if it is using PPTP, IPSEC or L2PTP.
