View Full Version : [ubuntu] network-manager-pptp

December 14th, 2010, 10:00 AM
Hello. I'm new to cli and servers but am enjoying the challenge.
I've started to setup my first lamp server stack and am stalled by a simple problem. I must use the campus pptp vpn to get internet access, but I need internet to apt-get network-manager-pptp to setup vpn etc, - circular problem.
I'm sure there is a way to get packages via usb stick with apt-get offline, though not sure if this is the easiest way? Is there a simple way by copying something across from my ubuntu laptop (10.10 but GUI) which is already working on campus network?
