I've just found sstp-client, I haven't test yet, but it may help :) – Behzadsh Sep 30 '11 at 19:51

You can give a try as described here, installing by yourself two programs, sstp-client and its network-manager support:

Although your answer is 100% correct, it might also become 100% useless if that link is moved, changed, merged into another one or the main site just disappears... :-( Therefore, please edit your answer, and copy the relevant steps from the link into your answer, thereby guaranteeing your answer for 100% of the lifetime of this site! ;-) You can always leave the link in at the bottom of your answer as a source for your material... – Fabby Mar 15 at 9:49
thanks for "-1" – Aleksey Maksimov Mar 15 at 16:06
Naah, not my style: I will specifically say "downvoted" if I do and why... (and here I didn't) I just left a comment for you to improve and you did. I also cast a delete vote (which I just retracted) and just upvoted as well! Don't worry about the down votes too much: some people are negative and like down voting without leaving comments: I'm not and try to stay positive... ;-) – Fabby Mar 15 at 16:28
Fabby, thanks for the additional edition of my answer. Have a nice day. – Aleksey Maksimov Mar 15 at 20:18
sstp-client works, but I've found it to be very slow for some applications such as SVN (compared to PPTP it was orders of magnitude slower): svn log --diff -r head:pastrev – Apteryx Mar 31 at 17:02
