VPN setup

Postby SCOMcat » Thu Nov 22, 2012 10:59 am

I want to use a VPN connection with my Linux Mint VMWare guest. I go to Network Connections, VPN tab. I add a connection call VPN connection 1, which I guess is the default name, and configure it.

The issue I have is I see no start, go, connect or anything else that tells the OS to begin using this VPN connection. Last used = never. How does this work? I assume I'm configured correctly but if I can't test the connection I don't know.
