Yes same here seems to be bug in recent updates. I also log in to pptp vpn account using command line. Set up /etc/ppp/peers login file
Mine is for pptp stronvpn
pty "pptp vpn-co7.reliablehosting.com --nolaunchpppd --debug"
and I open pp0 and login by
sudo pppd call vpn
sudo route add default dev ppp0
the only problem is you have to type this everytime you boot up. I would like if someone could give me instructions on how to automatically log in when system boots up.
