VPN connection worked before, now fails


Hi all,

Uisng Debian testing and network manager with a VPN connection. Everything worked worked fine before (last used a few weeks ago).

When I've tried again now it fails. Installing the newest versions of pptp-linux, network-manager-pptp and restarting didn't make a difference.
The network I'm trying to connect to did not change any settings on its side.

Here's the relevant output in /var/log/syslog:
Code:
Nov  3 18:44:27 mike NetworkManager[2018]: <info> Starting VPN service 'org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.pptp'...
