Installation of VPN requires administrative privileges on your computer. If you don't already have administrative access on your computer, this may be provided by your IT department.

  1. Go to the System menu in the taskbar, expand the Administration menu and click on Synaptic Package Manager.
  2. In the search box, enter "pptp" and hit enter.
  3. Click the box next to "network-manager-pptp" and select Mark for installation. If the network-manager-pptp is already installed (the check box will be gray), exit the Synaptic Package Manager and proceed to VPN setup instructions below.
  4. The system may prompt you to install additional necessary components. Click on the Mark button to select the additional components.
  5. Click the green check mark in the toolbar to apply all selected changes and install the PPTP plug in.
  6. When prompted to apply the changes, click the Apply button.
