Hi I am trying to use a cisco vpn client and having trouble. When the client is running, I get no data coming in and only a trickle going out. Network manager is installed but my connection is 'not managed' (pppoe connection).
I think / thought it might be my dns, as ping does not work at all, so I try to change the dns nameservers to google dns in /etc/resolv.conf, and there are two problems here:
network manager conveniently replaces my changes with each restart (and changing doesn't do any good anyway prior to restart)
I get weird errors:
(gedit:2976): Gtk-WARNING **: Attempting to store changes into `/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel', but failed: Failed to create file '/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel.WI6I6V': No such file or directory
(gedit:2976): Gtk-WARNING **: Attempting to set the permissions of `/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel', but failed: No such file or directory
Could someone pls tell me how I can troubleshoot these problems? I have the same service set up fine on an old box at work running 9.10...
And should I be trying to change the dns settings at the router? I am really not sure.
