Installing PPTP Client in Fedora 11

Date September 27, 2009

Usually, When i wanna connect to online servers for checking them or whatever, I ssh to my work PC then to them, unfortunately our main gateway is down today.

So i tried another solution which is trying our work VPN connection, Network Manager didn’t help me or maybe i didn’t know how to configure it (i don’t like it!), the other solution was PPTPConfig, i tried it before and it worked perfectly,

To install it in Fedora just follow the following steps as root:

[root@localhost ~]# rpm -Uhv http://pptpclient.sourceforge.net/yum/stable/fc11/pptp-release-current.noarch.rpm
[root@localhost ~]# yum install pptpconfig

now just run pptpconfig as root and configure your VPN connection..

    Cool. That’s so awesome. Does this client work with Windows’ PPTP VPN server or L2TP?

    Because Ubuntu’s and Fedora’s network manager last time I tried, won’t… !
