May 9th, 2009, 11:37 AM
I am using Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04. My internet connection is trough city lan network via PPPOE. I have configured it successfully via Network Manager -> DSL connection. Now I need to connect and use resources on the remote ofiice machine (Win XP). So, I want to setip VPN trough PPTP. I have installed all needed packages and tried to configure it via Network Manager -> VPN -> PPTP. I entered there my username and password, the server address and checked the "Use this connection only for resources on it's netwoork". And that's all. I can't connect. "The VPN connection 'VPN connection 1' failed because there were no valid VPN secrets".
I already tried this: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1136020 and this: https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/network-manager/+question/48503 (Sonya's opinion).
