    Need SSTP on Ubuntu 17.04 (Gnome)

    Hey guys,

    I'm using Ubuntu 17.04 with Gnome and absolutely have to get SSTP setup on my Laptop for work, or it's back to Windows for me.
    I've followed a couple of guides that had me install PPA's for sstp-client and the sstp NetworkManager plugin, but they failed to install.

    Does anyone know of a good solution for this?

    Found this

    http://sstp-client.sourceforge.net/

    Follow the steps there for compiling. Additionally, 17.04 has a network manager bug:

    Code:
    echo -e "\n[device]\nwifi.scan-rand-mac-address=no" | sudo tee -a /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf
    sudo sed -i "s/wifi.powersave = 3/wifi.powersave = 2/g" /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/default-wifi-powersave-on.conf
    sudo systemctl restart network-manager.service

    Well. I compiled and went through the steps on sourceforge.

    I only get this output:

    user@localhost:~$ sudo pon sstp-test
    Plugin sstp-pppd-plugin.so loaded.


    Once I do that, it seems to be able to ping servers via hostname, but not IP.

    Did you configure via network-manager? Adding the routes, etc.?

    I installed network-manager-sstp and sstp-client, and also ran the bug-fix above, but I still don't see SSTP connection as an option in my Network Manager GUI.

    No this was using the `pon` command as described on the sstp-client page.

    I don't see the SSTP option showing up in network-manager.

    It looks like my issue comes down to not knowing how to integrate the network-manager-sstp package.
    I've installed the network-manager-sstp package as described here: https://github.com/enaess/network-manager-sstp, but I don't see any SSTP option in the Gnome Network Manager or nmtui.

    f someone could help me with this I'd be super appreciative.

    Just to be sure, after reboot, I re-ran the command and it completed without errors.

    sudo apt-get install --reinstall \
    network-manager-openvpn network-manager-openvpn-gnome \
    network-manager-pptp network-manager-pptp-gnome \
    network-manager-vpnc network-manager-vpnc-gnome \
    network-manager-openconnect network-manager-openconnect-gnome \
    network-manager-sstp sstp-client
