I recently got a new Thinkpad that I loaded Linux Mint 18 (Rosa) onto. My School, Sacred Heart University, uses a VPN under pptp according to the tech desk. I say this because trying to connect regularly through wifi does not seem to work leading me to believe I need to manually connect to the VPN with my u-name and password. However I am having some difficulty connecting in that it will either never initiate or never complete. Is there some kind of package I am missing alongside the default pptp I see under VPN connections? If not, what am I missing that isn't allowing me to connect. I would post the errors if there were any to find, however I usually cannot get it to even initiate a connect, let alone attempt to connect. I have been searching around on google but can't seem to find any definitive information, I am hoping you guys can point me in the right direction.
