Configurazione dell'accesso VPN PPTP sul client
The VPN allows you to access in a secure way to Extranet Group Work server and all applications that it hosts. To access to it, your account must have the access rights related to it ("VPN access" box in EGWM or "Relatedness" index in GOsa.
You do not need to install any specific software under windows. Here is the procedure to follow to configure your access:
In the Virtual Private Network (VPN), you have a new connection, which allows you to launch the VPN.
Test it with your Extranet Group Work login and password (your account must have the VPN access rights).
Risoluzione dei problemi più comuni
At the time of connection, Windows sends me the following message "619 error: An unknown error occured"
You probably use a version of kernel, which does not support the VPN protocol used by PPTP (GRE). Use a kernel including the "vpn" keyword (for example 188.8.131.52-vpn-std-ipv4-32).
Note: In the BETA version of EGW, you do have to use the kernel installed by default on the hard disk. Do not use the netboot kernel
Under Linux, we will use pptp-linux
Warning! You must have a kernel having the MPPE support (Microsoft Point-to-Point? Encryption method) to use pptp under linux. You can either recompile your kernel, or upgrade to a 2.6.15 kernel or more which includes the MPPE support by default.
