    Cannot connect to newly created pptp vpn

    Hi all,

    I pretty much followed the tutorial here:
    http://www.ubuntugeek.com/howto-pptp...ucid-lynx.html

    But when I try to connect to this vpn from my ubuntu desktop, it fails. I created a new PPTP VPN connection, typed in the username and password i put into /etc/ppp/chap-secrets, but I'm just getting "connect failed".

    Is there any way to debug this issue? I'll appreciate the feedback.

    Thanks.

    I also know that the server is working since I can connect to it from a windows machine.

    Hello

    Debug from this should be contained in
    /var/log/daemon.log

    If you open that after a connection attempt and post here, that may help
    You can tell a man who boozes by the company he chooses, as the pig got up and slowly walked away.
