    Did you install the packages to provide the nice NetworkManager interface
    for that?

    sudo zypper in NetworkManager-pptp-gnome NetworkManager-pptp

    Good luck.

    I have check in the YaST, there were already installed, there are few of them, NetworkManager-pptp, NetworkManager-vpnc, and NetworkManager-openvpn. May I know which one I should run and how to run the program? I couldn't see them in the "Start" menu.

    THanks @!

    What type of VPN are You trying to connect to ?

    Those files are not in start menu. The most are something like plugins for knetworkmanager or gnome network manager applet.
    Here are screenshots for plasmoid-networkmanagement (sorry for polish), which is an alternative to knetworkmanager. Basicly all these programs are graphical add ons to control NetowrkManager.

    SUSE Paste
    SUSE Paste

    The tray icon looks should look something like this:
