When I started working for my current employer, everyone (myself and my boss included) were on Windows 7 machines. About 6 months ago, my boss gutted Windows 7 on his machine and replaced it with Linux Mint.
I recently asked if I could do the same, but with Ubuntu instead, and he allowed me. So this past weekend I replaced my OS with a fresh new Ubuntu 12.04 Desktop installation, and am loving it so far.
I'd like to configure VPN so that I can work from home. My boss sent me the following instructions in an email, but it looks like they apply only to Linux Mint users:
Create a file in /etc/vpnc/ named ‘ourCompany.conf’, and put in there: IPSec gateway 126.96.36.199 IPSec ID EmployeeVPN IPSec secret 3dud934id94j49fj9j4f Xauth username ourDomain\myUsername Xauth password myPassword
Edit: Obviously, had to provide dummy values for all of these!
Below is a screenshot of the VPN configurator that ships with Ubuntu. Is this what I should be using, or is there another VPN client I should use? If this is what I should be using, how do my boss's instructions translate to this client? For instance, I don't see
Xauth settings anywhere in this tool. Thanks in advance!
