Does your VPN work from a command line?
Do you have the package NetworkManager-pptp installed?

Code: Select all

ls /var/log/packages/NetworkManager*
How do i become super user?
Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.

Look at this post: VPN not working
For me it's working after settings permission:

su
mknod /dev/ppp c 108 0

ls /var/log/packages/NetworkManager*
RESULT: /var/log/packages/NetworkManager-1.8.4-x86_64-1jay

su
mknod /dev/ppp c 108 0

It seems some packages are missing.

Porteus 3.2.2 (32):
guest@porteus:~$ ls /var/log/packages/NetworkManager*
/var/log/packages/NetworkManager-1.4.4-i486-1jay
/var/log/packages/NetworkManager-openvpn-1.2.6-i586-1jay
/var/log/packages/NetworkManager-pptp-1.2.4-i586-1jay
/var/log/packages/NetworkManager-vpnc-1.2.4-i586-1jay

Yes missing the NetworkManager plugins. Can you run the openvpn from a command line? You will need to research how this is done.
