Meanwhile pptp support is in GNOME CVS and has been heavily reworked for

Fixes are also being applied to the STABLE branch of NetworkManager.

I have forwarded my patches to Anthony Mee. Nice guy. He already applied
the patches to svn. He encourages me to try the current svn version,
which has compatibilty mode for NetworkManager 0.6.4.

That would be nice. If this would lead to a pptp plugin for openSUSE 10.3,
that would be great.

My current status: The authdialog works. PPTP connects via WLAN, but not via a
cable based network.
I think Helmut also did some tests with PPTP. We will most likely merge

The current version in BS works fine now. Next I will try the currentsvn


I have installed the 01 07 version, but I had to install the Gnome desktop to get the VPN option. While I can now use KNetworkManager to configure a VPN, it doesn't appear to save it.

tnx jk
