Thread: NetworkManager-pptp for openSUSE 11.0

    Default NetworkManager-pptp for openSUSE 11.0

    Hello,

    I have recently installed openSUSE 11.0 and could not find any way to setup VPN connection to Windows XP box. In openSUSE 10.3 I used NetworkManager plus pptp(d), but in the current version I could fin NetworkManager-pptp in any of the community repositories. I installed the version that was shipped with openSUSE 10.3, but it failed to work. NetworkManager (nm-applet) crashes when I try to create VPN connection using PPTP protocol.

    Has any one set up VPN to Windows XP from openSUSE 11.0?

    No one uses VPN to Windows XP?

    Last time I checked (about a month ago), the PPTP plugin for NetworkManager 0.7 hadn't been completed yet so it was not in the repos. I don't know what it's current status is.

    Apparently the PPTP plugin was ported to 0.7 over the weekend, see here. Not sure when this will appear in the repos.

    I cannot find a link to download the version with pptp plug-in. Did you manage to download it?

    You can install kvpnc, and pptp-client I use it to connect to the office network and it works like a charm.

    No, I haven't been able to find it in any of the repositories yet. I did upgrade NetworkManager, but found it crashed the main menu applet, so have since downgraded it.

    The same is here - Main Menu crashed. So I needed to upgrade it back...

    I also tried to use vpnc, but some Group Name is required to be entered. But I do not have it. As a result it fails to connect.
