View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to add routes to Network Manager GUI Applet in Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04?

Greetings folks!

I recently successfully setup a PPTP connection to my company's VPN. I used the Network Manager GUI applet that comes by default with Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 (64 bit version).

In my further research, I found that after successfully connecting you need to setup ROUTES to be able to browse/access other machines and services behind the PPTP server.

So I went to the command line and added the following to make it work:

route add -net netmask dev ppp0

My question is how can the above route's equivalent be entered in the Network Manager GUI applet over here

You can get to the adding route windows by following these steps:
System -> Preferences -> Network Connections -> VPN(Tab) -> Select existing VPN / Add new VPN -> Edit(Button) -> IPv4 Settings (Tab) -> Routes (Button)

If I can figure this out, it will be peace of mind for me!
