view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, After setting up multiple advanced users with VPN, they are often unable to use it because of this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...t/+bug/1006141 also https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...rk/+bug/868587 There's been no progress on this bug in months. Is there a command-line way to start VPN? Thanks HF (Hardware)
