Hi, everyone.

I am trying to connect to a PPTP VPN using Xfce4 Network Manager, however I cannot establish a connection. On my desktop computer using Xubuntu I can connect without a problem. Also I am using a AC1200 USB adapter . When I checked the /var/log message I obtain:

Code:

In addition I followed this tutorial, without success:

I added the following kernel configurations to my kernel to make it run:

Code:

CONFIG_PPP_ASYNC
CONFIG_PPP


I found the information in the following link:

Thanks.
