now run “ sh /etc/rc.local “

Pls give more info on the actual problem you have, I mean, what happens when you try to connect?

Also, does the ISP want you to use any software or is it just all running through network manager? Which, by the way, network manager is kinda buggy...

Also, what kind is your normal connection? ADSL? PPPOE?

What do you mean you can't do all of step 2?

PPTP is not available is what you mean? I have never heard of it...

I am not an expert, but some will come around. Pls provide more info for them to use.
