http://ubuntuforums.org – I'm using Kubuntu 9.10, my pppd version is 2.4.5 and pptp is 1.7.2 I'm trying to connect to the iPredator VPN service, but I keep running into problems with LCP. I've tried using knetworkmanager, nm-applet, kvpnc and plain old text-based configuration to no avail. Here's a snippet of pppd's output: Code: sent [LCP ConfAck id=0x1 <asyncmap 0x0> <auth chap MS-v2> <magic 0x9dc87535> <pcomp> <accomp>] sent [LCP ConfReq id=0x1 <asyncmap 0x0> <magic 0xf7dccf4b> <pcomp> <accomp>] rcvd [LCP ConfReq id=0x1 <asyncmap 0x0> <auth chap MS-v2> <magic 0x9dc87535> <pcomp> <accomp>] sent [LCP ConfAck id=0x1 <asyncmap 0x0> <auth chap MS-v2> <magic 0x9dc87535> <pcomp> <accomp>] sent [LCP ConfReq id=0x1 <asyncmap 0x0> <magic 0xf7dccf4b> <pcomp> <accomp>] rcvd [LCP ConfReq id=0x1 <asyncmap 0x0> <auth chap MS-v2> <magic 0x9dc87535> <pcomp> <accomp>] sent [LCP ConfAck id=0x1 <asyncmap 0x0> <auth chap MS-v2> <magic 0x9dc87535> <pcomp> <accomp>] sent [LCP ConfReq id=0x1 <asyncmap 0x0> <magic 0xf7dccf4b> <pcomp> <accomp>] rcvd [LCP ConfReq id=0x1 <asyncmap 0x0> <auth chap MS-v2> <magic 0x9dc87535> <pcomp> <accomp>] sent [LCP ConfAck id=0x1 <asyncmap 0x0> <auth chap MS-v2> <magic 0x9dc87535> <pcomp> <accomp>] sent [LCP ConfReq id=0x1 <asyncmap 0x0> <magic 0xf7dccf4b> <pcomp> <accomp>] rcvd [LCP ConfReq id=0x1 <asyncmap 0x0> <auth chap MS-v2> <magic 0x9dc87535> <pcomp> <accomp>] sent [LCP ConfAck id=0x1 <asyncmap 0x0> <auth chap MS-v2> <magic 0x9dc87535> <pcomp> <accomp>] LCP: timeout sending Config-Requests To me, it looks like the ConfAcks aren't getting through. Here's what the routing table looks like when it's trying to connect: Code: Destination    Gateway        Genmask        Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface 93.182.132.2    192.168.0.1    255.255.255.255 UGH  0      0        0 eth0 192.168.0.0    0.0.0.0        255.255.255.0  U    1      0        0 eth0 169.254.0.0    0.0.0.0        255.255.0.0    U    1000  0        0 eth0 0.0.0.0        192.168.0.1    0.0.0.0        UG    0      0        0 eth0 Does this look correct? (I've got "defaultroute" in my /etc/ppp/peers/ipred config file.) Any ideas what could be causing this? Could it even be my router? It claims to support PPTP, but considering it claims a lot of other things which aren't true, I wouldn't be surprised if it was the culprit. (HowTos)
