Connecting to a Microsoft vpn with Ubuntu

In this post I am assuming that you are running ubuntu desktop with gnome.

The first step is to install the appropriate package:
   sudo apt-get install network-manager-gnome network-manager-pptp

Next, click on the network manager icon
   VPN Connections -> Configure VPN...

Then click Add

After that enter your gateway, username, and password.

Then click Advanced...

The settings you want to change here are, uncheck EAP (in top list) and check MPPE

Click Ok then Apply and you are done
