    vpn client for debian


    I want to connect to a vpn server and I'm using debian 5.
    I installed Kvpnc package but when I try to make a new profile I choose "Microsoft pptp" as vpn type and I receive the following message:
    the required daemons (pppd and pptpd) aren't availabale
    what should I do? please tell me the details because I'm a beginner in Linux.
    and is there anyway to download required daemons in another computer and use them in my computer (I'm worried about dependencies)?

    Hi, the most easyest way to solve this would be by installing the deamons.

    apt-get install pppd

    should be enought.
    As long as you have used apt-get for installations there shouldn't be any dependency problems.
    apt-get will list all needed additional packages and all packages that will need to be uninstalled if needed ...

    If I remember right ...
    pppd is the client
    pptpd is the server

    Theres also the possibility to just ask apt-get about the dependencys.

    Hi
    thank you first.
    I think apt-get install pppd uses Internet for downloading the daemon. but I want vpn connection for accessing Internet and don't have Internet access from my debian yet.
