    Re: The Terminal?

    Did you turn on the firewall?

    But for the record, try ctrl + alt + T with the keyboard.

    Don't know what system or desktop you're running so, it could be different as to where in the applications it is listed.

    Re: The Terminal?

    Again, did you enable the firewall in the first place?
    The firewall is disable by default, so...

    But in case try
    Code:
    sudo ufw disable
    to disable
    Code:
    sudo ufw enable
    to enable
    and
    Code:
    sudo ufw status
    to see what state it is in.

    Edit: I would run the status command first.

    Re: The Terminal?

    itś says its disabled.

    my problem is that iḿ trying to set up a vpn connection, and i thought it was the firewall that blocked it.

    what does "sudo" mean?

    Re: The Terminal?

    sudo gives you root access, meaning it gives the regular ole user(You) the ability to make changes to the system.

    Don't know what about what about vpn, but I think you might need to install additional packages.
    Look here maybe

    Re: Set up a vpn connection

    k, my problems is that i try to set up a pptp vpn connection. but i always get disconnected after a few seconds.

    i have disabled the firewall, and did everything as the pptp vpn guide tells me.

    what other things to do?

    is it hard to set up a open vpn?
