Hi, anyone. I'm new to Linux servers and it's configuration. I've used Linux for a long time like desktop OS, tried many Linux distributions, and currently I'm planning to stop on Fedora for my desktop and RHEL for servers (for the last one, I just testing it to decide "buy it or just stay with Fedora). I have a problem with configuration my internet connection on Fedora and RHEL6 Beta, my provider gives me internet over VPN->PPTP (as I know server using FreeBSD, but it's not a point). It's first time when I have such problem.
1) RHEL6 Beta (my old 32bit PC, it will be used for creating local RPM mirror for Fedora and hosting some web-services) doesn't provide any vpn packages for Networkmanger, so I've recently downloaded two packages: NetworkManager-pptp-0.7.0-2.svn16.el5.i386.rpm, NetworkManager-pptp-0.7.996-4.git20090921.fc12.i686.rpm. After installing both of them, there appeared buttons in VPN tab for managing connections in nm-applet. I've created connection as usual: wrote vpn server name, login, password, chosen automatically DHCP settings for IP, and so on... But newly created connection is always faults saying "wrong secrets", or something like that, I didn't remember it strictly. So, maybe someone had equal problem and solved it, or someone can tell me how can I do all that in terminal, without using nm-applet.
2) On my desktop (Fedora 13 - x86_64, KDE4) I can't establish my VPN connection via knetworkmanager, all buttons in VPN tab is gray, so I've written script that kills knetworkmanager when KDE starts and starts nm-applet where all VPN stuff works normally. I've tried to install all Networkmanger VPN packages but all that stuff appears only in GNOME (I mean in nm-applet as it's part of GNOME). Maybe someone have a clue how to work with all it normally without such type of "voodoo magic"?
P.S. Thanks for your attention, and sorry for my bad English.
