    Can't connect to a pptp vpn

    I am having trouble connecting back to my vpn at work while I'm at home. Mainly need to get our local svn repos for at home development. I successfully connected to the vpn following this tutorialhttps://wiki.ubuntu.com/VPN.

    I am running Lucid Lynx 64bit and I followed the 9.10 section of the tutorial on setting up PPTP connection.

    It worked fine. Then I walked away from my computer and it was disconnected when I came back 2 hours later. I was unable to connect back to it. I used my laptop which is running windows 7 and it connected just fine. So, now I am unable to connect to it and have no idea why.

    I viewed my system log and don't know what to do with the information. Could someone help me out on this. Thanks

    My syslog shows this...

    Re: Can't connect to a pptp vpn

    I solved this issue. In case anyone else has this problem I was on an at&t wesdell modem. This modem by default isn't set in bridged mode. Had to set it to bridged mode and then handle pppoe on my router. Than was able to connect just fine.
