Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Using OpenSuse and kvpnc, I'm unable to connect to a windows PPTP VPN.

I selected PPTP for type of the connection, and entered the username, password and the gateway address. All other options are left to default.

The connection fails every time.

Any idea how to fix that?

This isn't a programming question –  marto Jul 20 '11 at 11:43

This is not for serverfault either, it belongs to superuser. I do not see how this is related to server administration at all. –  Sunny Jul 20 '11 at 12:43

From my experience, switching to MSCHAP (v1) helps - Settings -> Profile -> Connection specific -> PPTP -> Authentication -> change Method from MSCHAP-v2 to MSCHAP
