I know it's hard to help, since I'm not familiar with alot of this. Im learning as I go...
Im using this BU (boston university) config here
. Im at BU med, which has a few different settings, but I know those are right. The error Im getting is DNS related, I think, because it cant resolve the BU vpn server address (although sometimes I get a "port 500 in use" error, which looks generic, since when I run '-debug' I get errors more along the lines of the DNS stuff). I have no idea how to set up the resolve.conf, if I need to do that. Im under the impression that you can give the IP for the server name, but I have zero idea what the IP address is. Its a bit frustrating, since I kind of think I understand what I need to do, but cant figure out (or find) how to do it.
It'd be helpful if you think this even sounds like Im on the right track...
To find the IP#'s for the vpn gateways at BU
# host vpn-offcampus.bu.edu
vpn-offcampus.bu.edu has address 126.96.36.199
# host vpn-oncampus.bu.edu
vpn-oncampus.bu.edu has address 188.8.131.52
What should be in your /etc/resolv.conf likely depends on whether you are on campus or off. But it should have some nameservers in it to do the DNS magic.
