    Question VPN client - L2TP over IPSEC (PSK) - howto on Suse (forced to use Ubuntu for work due to no vpn..)

    HI.

    How do you connect via OpenSuse to a L2TP over IPSEC (PSK) VPN?

    The vpn gui tools included in the opensuse repos do not seem to support this type of VPN connection (i.e the gnome/kde tools) so I am stuck having to use Kubuntu to work with.

    The only tools in Linux I have been able to get to work (any distro) are from

    http://wiki.l2tpipsecvpn.tuxfamily.o...itle=Main_Page

    - the ubuntu ppa works.

    The version for opensuse http://wiki.l2tpipsecvpn.tuxfamily.o..._Page#openSUSE is out of date (i.e will not install in opensuse 13.1) - trying to compile from source I get the following error

    Code:
    src/pkcs11/Pkcs11.h:29:18: fatal error: ltdl.h: No such file or directory
     #include <ltdl.h>
    Surely other people are connecting to this type of VPN (its really common, Android phones use it widely)

    Any assistance/advise with this would be good - right now i'm forced to use an Ubuntu variant (or Windows..) to connect to work - which sucks.

    Cheers

    That repo doesn't exist at all anymore AFAICS.

    - trying to compile from source I get the following error

    Code:
    src/pkcs11/Pkcs11.h:29:18: fatal error: ltdl.h: No such file or directory
     #include <ltdl.h>
    ltdl.h is in the package "libtool", you have to install that.

    But maybe this would work as well?
    http://software.opensuse.org/package...rkManager-l2tp
    This should add L2TP support to NetworkManager.
    But I haven't tried that myself.

    Hi

    Thanks for the advice regarding libtool

    I'm using KDE - the kde + yast networkmanager was still missing L2TP setup

    Anyone else connecting to this type of VPN?

    (still stuck on Kubuntu for work due to VPN issue..)

    cheers
