    Installing vpn kali linux

    Hello,

    I can't figure out how to fix this problem, i've tried everything.

    this is what I found on the internet:

    First do a
    # apt-get update

    then install plug-in (this one will also)
    # apt-get install network-manager-pptp
    # apt-get install network-manager-pptp-gnome

    Or

    # sudo apt-get install network-manager-openvpn
    # sudo apt-get install network-manager-openvpn-gnome
    # sudo apt-get install network-manager-pptp
    # sudo apt-get install network-manager-pptp-gnome
    # sudo apt-get install network-manager-strongswan
    # sudo apt-get install network-manager-vpnc
    # sudo apt-get install network-manager-vpnc-gnome

    But when try to run the command: apt-get install network-manger-ppt or one of the following commands I'll get this error:

    root@Judas:~# apt-get install network-manager-pptp
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Package network-manager-pptp is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source

    Does someone knows a solution?

    Thank you.

    Check your /etc/apt/sources.list
    Code:
     apt-get install network-manager-openvpn-gnome network-manager-pptp network-manager-pptp-gnome network-manager-strongswan network-manager-vpnc network-manager-vpnc-gnome
    /etc/init.d/network-manager restart
    seems to work fine make sure you have your sources.list setup correctly

    1- copy this to your text editor & save it as vpn-activator.sh
    2- chmod +x vpn-activator.sh
    3- sh vpn-activator.sh
    & wait until he finished the JOB
    & go to network manager & VOILA you have the ( ADD VPN ) Button

    apt-get install network-manager-openvpn-gnome
    apt-get install network-manager-pptp
    apt-get install network-manager-pptp-gnome
    apt-get install network-manager-strongswan
    apt-get install network-manager-vpnc
    apt-get install network-manager-vpnc-gnome
    /etc/init.d/network-manager restart

    This was always an issue in Backtrack as well. It seems like it has to be more than a co-incidence that the most advanced public security distro is the only distro with no VPN functionality. I think it's a concession to big brother to deter pen testers from evading surveillance.
