vpn connection using pptpconfig using fedora 10
Posted on 2009-02-13
I am using fedora 10 and I would like to connect to my work's vpn. Using windows xp I can connect without any problems. However, this is my first time using fedora so not sure how to do this, and I am a newbie at using fedora.
what I have noticed in connection manager I have a tab called vpn. However, this is always disabled. Is there a reason for this. Can I not use connection manager to connect to my work's vpn.I might be doing wrong.
I installed the pptpconfig client andI have configured the setting in pptpconfig as I do when I connect using windows. However, I am getting the following response:
Using interface ppp0pptpconfig: monitoring interface ppp0
Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/pts/1
MS-CHAP authentication failed: Authentication failed
CHAP authentication failed
pptpconfig: pppd process terminated by signal 19 (failed)
I think this is a difficult question to answer so I have given it 250 points
Any suggestions of what I might be doing wrong?
