View Full Version : [ubuntu] VPNC on wireless connection

July 10th, 2009, 04:09 PM

I have tried unsuccessfully to set up a VPN connection to my university using VPNC in Jaunty. I am based off campus and connect to the internet via wireless ISP.

I have configured the VPNC connection in Network Manager, and I think all the settings are correct, but I get a "Failed to connect" error message every time. I have tried suggestions from other threads, but to no avail. I connect with no problems using the Nortel Contivity setup in Windows XP, so my connection, gateway, passwords etc are not the problem.

Is there an issue with connecting to VPNC via wireless instead of ethernet?

I'm a noob, so please keep it simple.

Many thanks
