VPN Setup on Ubuntu

Posted: May 21, 2010 in Linux, Ubuntu

In order to use VPN on Ubuntu, we need to install support for the VPN protocol:

PPTP (Microsoft VPN)
sudo apt-get install network-manager-pptp

Cisco VPN
sudo apt-get install network-manager-vpnc

OpenVPN
sudo apt-get install network-manager-openvpn

How to use:

1. Click on the network-manager in the system tray
2. Choose VPN Connections -> Configure VPN: Click Add
3. You might have to restart the network-manager (killall nm-applet; nm-applet &)
4. Now the VPN connection should be shown in the network-manager
