Add l2pt support

Postby Vmaks88 » Wed Sep 20, 2017 11:53 am

Hi!
In recent years, increasingly used VPN L2PT, but, unfortunately, his support is not in the network manager. Of course, there are ways to add it. But for some reason did not give it initially in the release?

It's available in Mint 18.2 KDE.

HI "Vmaks88",

Welcome to the wonderful world of Linux Mint and its excellent forum !

I just read your post and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well.

It would help to know more about your system setup. If you run "inxi -Fxzd" from the console terminal prompt, highlight the results, copy and paste them back here, that should provide enough information.

The "openVPN" protocol is the safest and most secure VPN protocol to use, and it is usually already installed in all editions of Linux Mint.

Hi, PhD21!
I know that Linux mint cinnamon 18.2 natively supports pptp and OpenVPN.
I know how to add support L2PT, but it's not a very convenient way.
I just expressed my wish to have added support for L2PT. Open VPN does not support every network equipment, and it is inconvenient to set up. In a corporate environment, at least in our country, mainly use L2PT.
