PPTP VPN Problem - Linux Client connecting to Windows 2003 server
Posted on 2007-03-31
I am running OpenSuse 10.2 attempting to connect to a PPTP VPN on a Windows 2003 Server. I am using KVpnc for the client. I can manage to authenticate and connect when I check off "Refuse EAP" in the profile with the rest defaults. I can not establish a connection without checking refuse EAP. When I do establish a connection (with refuse EAP) it does NOT change my IP nor can I browse the remote network or do anything that the VPN is suppose to allow me to do. Also the connection will drop frequently and reconnect. When I connect to the same VPN using windows it works just fine using all defaults on the windows VPN client. I do have to add the LAN IP of the windows 2003 server as a WINS server with the windows client in order to browse computers by name instead of IP. I don't really need this function, that is just a bonus, I can get by with using IP's to navigate to the computers, I just need to be on that subnet. Please help.
