I'm using Xubuntu 12.10. I want to switch to wicd and remove Network Manager. So, I have to setup the VPN connection via pptp. I corrected my options.pptp, provider and chap-secrets files according to some tutorials. When I try
sudo pppd call provider command it creates connection but it looks slower than Network Manager's variant. (It stacks about 3 seconds when I try to access any web page first time). I noticed that pppd puts VPN provider's DNS at the second place in
nameserver "My default DNS" nameserver "VPN provider's DNS" nameserver 127.0.1.1
Network Manager doesn't change
/etc/resolv.conf. (Does it use
/etc/ppp/resolv.conf for VPN?)
Does DNS order in
resolv.conf affect on the access speed? How to solve this issue correctly?
