openSuSE 10.2 PPTP configuration :)


Is there a way to configure PPTP (WAN miniport) connection on this distro (openSuSE 10.2) without making the installation of the countless rpms shown in sourceforge.net website ? Because this installation returns me a lot of errors.
In other words, is there a method to configure this connection to the Net with its own (in the distro) internet connection tools ?
Thanks

could you be less specific? What are you connecting to?
DSL modem? Cell phone DUN modem? Router of some kind?

Perhaps the option in Yast / Network Devices/ DSL Modems / Add button (PPTP type) would be of assistance to you.

I am not sure My connection details shown in Windows XP are something like this:
Device name : PPTP
Device type : vpn
server type: PPP
transports: TCP/IP
authentication: MS CHAP V2
compression: none
PPP multilink framing: off
server IP address: 192.168.0.50
Clinet IP address: 192.200.57.95

And my IP address in the local network is: 192.168.57.94
VPNIP : 192.168.57.250

Thanks again and sorry about the absence of adequate and sufficient information in my first post

Looks like you have a vpn connection. You'll need cisco vpn client.

I'm sure you also have a group id and group password, and your own user id and password?

Is this like a work or school VPN you must connect to in order to get internet?

Yes, this is a VPN connection and I have an account and a user password. And yes,I have to connect to in order to get internet. Without this connection, I have access only to the local LAN network.

I can't fix the problem with my Internet connection. I don't know ... maybe Ubuntu or Mandriva is a good distribution.
