i'm a relative new user to ubuntu and have only used it as a virtual machine until this evening. after a bit of fun, i got wireless working and my next goal is to be able to VPN into work. despite following the various guides, i am unable to connect - i am 99% sure that i have set it up correctly but alas, after prompting me for login details (that are correct, as i'm using them on a vista laptop) there is nothing. nada.
i've looked at debug and messages, there is nothing there - it looks as if no connection attempt is being made. my router logs only show attempts to connect that originate from my laptop as opposed to this machine.
i have refuse EAP, refuse CHAP ticked and use peer DNS/peer DNS through tunnel unticked.
any help greatly appreciated.
