Can someone explain to me the Ubuntu VPN Wiki?
I've been having hard time connecting to VPN, and now trying to configure it manually and run it from command line. Here is a vpn wiki https://wiki.ubuntu.com/VPN where it explains how I can do it from the command line. The problem is that I can't get some terms!
In file /etc/ppp/peers/YOUR_COMPANY
What is YOUR_VPN_GATEWAY? Isn't it the IP address provided by the ISP?
What does it mean: YOUR_COMPANY in "ipparam YOUR_COMPANY" ?
And the line after it remotename YOUR_COMPANY, is it the same?
What does YOUR_DOMAIN_OR_SERVER_NAME\\YOUR_VPN_LOGIN mean? or what is \\ in the first place?
It's really not so clear putting strange variables without explaining. I know that they are written in english indicating the value, but they must be more explained.
Please, help me understand that I may put the right values, cuz it's confusing, and although I tried a lot I couldn't get it to work.
Now in file /etc/ppp/chap-secrets,
I must type: YOUR_DOMAIN_OR_SERVER_NAME\\YOUR_VPN_LOGIN * YOUR_VPN_PASSWORD *
What bout password? Is it between ** ?
