Hello, I finally installed 8.10 to realize that the whole VPN connection stuff is worst then 8.04.

I can no longer connect to my school network from home. (which is essential for doing homework)

The main problem I think is that there is nowhere to specify the MRU Packet Parameters.

Does anyone know how I could do this?

As a reference, I need to configure everything identically to this (it's in french but screen the screen shots say it all):

The writer of the french "how to" in my previous post suggests another "how to" site for configuring a VPN in 8.10.

although it looks too easy, my friends that spent hours with me trying to get it to work this week, managed to get it to work with these few easy steps.

The main difference is that you need to leave the password field blank. This is what solved my problem. It will just prompt me for it. When it is entered in the VPN profile, it never works.
