Now I have tried to connect the same with Mint (9 and 10), but I have diff. to start VPN-connection.
What I have done:
- LAN connection (firewalls OK in both ends) OK
- Setup VPN connection with "NetworkManager Applet 0.8.1" (not so many selections avail.)
- When trying to start with NetworkManager - VPN connections - "VPN connection 1", Nothing else happens, but message:
I have checked, that user (me as normal login) has right to "Connect to wireless and ethernet networks". Should I install some package, before NetworkManager-VPN?"VPN connection failed
VPN connection "VPN connection 1"failed because VPN service failed to start."
For Mint-to-Mint I have used Remmina, but that does not have VPN-inside, One option could be to install (remotely) SSH-server to XP, but would pref. to keep changes minimal due actual distance to working XP.
