I'm running ubuntu 12.04 in vmware. The network connection is running in bridge mode. I'm trying to connect to my vpn server using command line https://wiki.ubuntu.com/VPN

I'm sure the vpn works, as it connects fine with my windows machine and android phone.

This is my vpn log so it seems to establish the connection fine.

using channel 9
Using interface ppp0
Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/pts/2
