    VPN issues

    Good morning all.
    After quite a few years away from Ubuntu I have finally come back and am loving it. I'm currently running Ubuntu 12.10 x64.
    This is my work computer and I'm required to VPN into many different clients to access their networks. For some reason I just can't get any VPN connection to establish. I have read the forums and google and tried all the different ideas but none solve my issue.
    Also, I really don't want to be setting up the connections or connecting from the command line. I really want to use the Network Manager as it's designed to work.
    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Cheers in advance.

    James

    I should add sorry that the VPN connections are OK at the other ends as my work mates can connect from their PCs and Macs and I can connect from my iPhone with no issues.

    Re: VPN issues

    Sorry to piggyback on this, but I am wanting to connect to my network via OpenVPN. I have a home server running Ubuntu 12.10 x64 as well. Are you using OpenVPN? Any chance to anyone knows of a decent tutorial on how to set this up?
