I am trying to set up a VPN in a virtual box machine running Ubuntu 10.10. All attempts so far have failed and even when I set up the VPN it keeps saying failed connection. Any help at all here would be much appreciated.
What kind of vpn are you trying to connect? is it cisco vpn? if its cisco vpn, then try using the cisco client. the tutorial to compile can be found here and here. The network manager vpnc did not work for me so i took to the compiling.
Also , if you are using virtualbox, set the network adapter settings to NAT .
