Announcement: PPTP VPN functionality
« on: August 30, 2009, 04:28:40 am »
I have added PPTP functionality and a PPTP link to the Users section of the web admin. I am working on the wiki page next. Hopefully someone skilled in PHP could double check my code, since this is my first.

Here are the patch files
http://donpaul.info/PPTP_Patch.tar.gz

Here is the script
http://donpaul.info/Setup_PPTP.sh.gz

This is tested on 7.10, and it works for me. Once I build an 8.10 system, I will test it there as well. Let me know if there are any problems.

as soon as you have it running with 810, please open up a trac ticket, mark it feature_patch and attach your script files. That way, we can keep all these patches at a single location.

Thanks

donpaul,

thanks for the patch. Please re-submit the patch as a svn diff patch. Thanks

I don't see a way to submit a svn diff patch. Can you point me to it?

did you make the changes in an svn checked out source tree?

svn co http://whatever/you/are/working/on/
make your changes, then cd to the root directory of the checkout ("on" in this case)
svn diff > your-patch-file.patch
drop the patch onto the ticket.

Nope. Sounds like I should have though  :-[

svn co http://whatever/you/are/working/on/
make your changes, then cd to the root directory of the checkout ("on" in this case)
svn diff > your-patch-file.patch
drop the patch onto the ticket.

Thanks, I'll give that a try.

Ticket has been updated with the SVN diff and new script files. The diff and scripts are for both PPTP and OpenVPN integration.

Is the ticket up-to-date? If so, the beta2 site needs to be updated to get into the release.

http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/ticket/339

Hasn't been touched in two months, but looks like everything is on there.  Has anyone tested this recently?
