    Question vpn connection problem

    I thought configuring a vpn would be a piece of cake, but it seems I'm missing something.

    I'm attempting to create a vpn (pptp) using the networkmanager (0.7.1). I enter the gateway (I assume thats the server I'm trying to connect to) and my login information. What is the NT Domain?

    When I try to connect it only tells me after a while that it failed to do so. How can I find the information on what went wrong in the process?

    After some more digging I found this in with "mousepad /var/log/messages|grep -i ppp"

    It appears we have the same problem. Something about a synchronous state and then a failure. My logs are here:

    Edit: I found a fix for the issue that I was having at least, check out the thread that I reported my issues in (link above).
