View Full Version : [ubuntu] [bold]Terminal Server Client Won't Work[/bold]

July 8th, 2009, 07:51 AM
I am really hoping somebody has experienced this before and can help me.

I am running 8.04 64 bit. Have been for months now.

I work at home 80% of the time and am absolutely dependent on a windows PPTP VPN connection. As I have already mentioned I have been using it without too much problem for many weeks.

All of a sudden tonight I can't seem to get the terminal server client to work. It launches... appears to be showing up in my processes but I get no gui. A couple mins later a get a failure to connect notice.

I have an hour or two before I will have to re-install Vista to maintain that connection and I really really don't want to have to do that.. I don't think I have to tell anybody here how much of a pain that is!

Any ideas? Thanks.
