Linux VPN client not working

Dear Experts,

I'm having an impossible time trying to VPN to a  Cisco Meraki Firewall with a LInux Ubuntu MATE desktop.

I only need to setup the secret key the username and password. I do not need to have a certificate.

The Linux VPN clients are not working. Is there a script I could use from somewhere?

Thank you!

Sure! The problem I think is asking me for a certificate. Otherwise will not let me keep the configuration. I can do it easily in Windows 10.

I use in Windows 10:

Connection Name
address of Cisco Meraki
VPN type: L2TP/IPSEC with pre-shared key  
Pre-shared key
User name
Password


Once I create that entry I go the network adapter settings and change the Security to:

Allow These protocols:

PAP
CHAP
MS-CHAP -v2
