My compile attempts left the Network Manager not being able to find the client during compile even though I had already compiled and installed the client. I think you need to play around with the paths when installing the client. For example the --libdir must be /usr/lib

I am a little sick at the moment and not much time or energy. :cry:

Hi, This is how i compile sstp-client

./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --includedir=/usr/include --libexecdir=/usr/lib/sstp-client --mandir=/usr/share/man --infodir=/usr/share/info --disable-dependency-tracking --with-runtime-dir=/var/run/sstpc --enable-user --enable-group

and Network Manager Plugins

./configure --sysconfdir=/etc --prefix=/usr --libexecdir=/usr/lib/NetworkManager

but it doesn't show any dialog box.

Note: i compile same way and make it SSTP connection working on Ubuntu Desktop.

Apr 5 20:30:10 porteus sstpc[17731]: Could not parse attributes
Apr 5 20:30:11 porteus sstpc[17731]: Unrecoverable SSL error
Apr 5 20:30:11 porteus sstpc[17731]: Connection was aborted, Reason was not known

This cause disconnection sstp vpn link after couple of second it established, but with same library its working fine on Linux Mint Cinnamon and Ubuntu.
