I am trying to establish a VPN (PPTP) connection in FC11 to my work place.
However it is not working. I try to run it from GNOME, where I set it up in the network manager specifying:
- VPN server address
- user name
For a start a yellow dialog box appeared when I tried to connect stating that it failed "because there were no valid VPN secrets.". Now if I try, it does not do anything(!). (sub question: can I see a log somewhere?)
Later on I tried an alternative way in a terminal, with pptpsetup. But it tells me I have to be root!?
pppd: must be root to run pppd, since it is not setuid-root
. I also tried as root, but then some SELinux box came up (maybe this is the problem?)
Maybe all this is irrelevant, but does anybody have an idea how I establish the VPN connection? Please share
And feel free to suggest more or less obvious solutions. I'm completely new to this, so maybe I did not try the obvious things
