I’ve recently installed openSUSE 12.1, and am currently running it as a dual-boot with Windows 7, which came with my computer. A VPN shortcut exists on the Windows partition in order for my computer to connect to the network at school. I have (but will not list for obvious reasons) a number of IPv4 adresses associated with the VPN, and have been trying to configure the network so that I can abandon Windows altogether.
I have (from the properties window in Win7):
Server Address (I have a feeling that this is the gateway)
To confuse things further, I also get a different address when I view the `details’ part of the window. For clarity, I am running openSUSE 12.1 with GNOME 3.2, and am simply using the network connection option on the top bar. I have attempted trial and error; some addresses seem to work but then the connection times out, so no joy so far. Could somebody please tell me which addresses go in what field? A series of terminal commands would also be helpful if that’s your way of doing things.
