From my work I got a nice document how to setup my VPN using windows 7 on my laptop, it basically goes like this:
setup a new connection or network
connect to a workplace
use my internet connection
I entere the IP adres & Destination name
type of VPN: automatic
data encryption: require encryption (disconnect if server declines)
Allow protocols: CHAP, MS-CHAP v2
then after it is created I have to go to its properties and set data encryption not required.
After this I can simply connect, so now I have been trying this at home with KVpnc:
New profile wizard
Select MS PTPP
all the DSN, PPP, MPPE options I leave as they are
enter my username and password
network device: default
leave virtual IP and IPsec unchecked
and at the end I give it a name and enter the IP adres in the VPN gateway option and finish
So far about as easy as under windows 7, however when I try to connect I get:
debug: pppd: /usr/sbin/pppd debug: Support for GRE found (compiled into kernel or kernel module already loaded). debug: pppd peer script: /etc/ppp/peers/kvpnc.BL_Uitwijk_VPN debug: pppd: /usr/sbin/pppd debug: Trying to connect to server "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" with user "xxxxxxxxx"... debug: Setting DNS_UPDATE "NO". debug: "pppd" started. error: Remote modem has hung up. Connection was terminated. debug: There is a reason to stop connecting, terminating "pppd" process. debug: Disconnect requested debug: Disconnect requested, status connecting debug: Killing process while connecting. success: Successful connect try canceled. debug: Disconnected.
Since with the windows 7 setup I need to set data encryption to not required I have been playing with the MPPE options like unchecking MPPE but still not effect.
I am not a network guru so pretty unsure what I am doing wrong or should change ?
this is on opensuse 11.2
pptp 1.7.2-25.2 (via 11.2-oss)
kvpnc 0.9.6-3.1 (via KDE backports)
thanks for any tips !
