    Talking Setting up Hotspot Shield through Network Manager?

    SOLVED. I am editing this for anyone else wanting to set up Hotspot Shield through the Ubuntu Network Manager.

    I wanted to set up a VPN for my netbook when I connect public hotspots.

    I got Hotspot Shield to work through the terminal using this youtube video. It works alright, but I wanted to set it up through the network manager instead.


    How to set Hotspot Shield up through Network Manager:

    1. Download the "network management framework (VPNC plugin)" package in synaptic
    2. Now go to http://hotspotshield.com/clientless/...et_started.php for the Hotspot Shield settings.
    3. Configure a new VPN in Network Manager
    4. Choose "Cisco Compatible VPN (vpnc)" from the dropdown list.
    5. How to fill out the window that pops up:

    Server = Gateway
    Account = User name under "Optional"
    Password = User password
    Group Name = Group name
    Secret = Group password

    Leave everything else as default.

    6. Click save and now you can connect to Hotspot Shield through Network Manager!

    If all you are going to be doing is surfing the internet and checking email, the builtin firewall should be enough without having to go to all the extra effort of setting up third party programs. Open a terminal and type:

    Code:
    sudo ufw enable
    You can run a port scan form another computer on your network, you'll see that there are no open ports.

    If you use web mail, check to see if there is a https connection available.
