Microsoft introduced a new type of VPN with Windows Server 2008 called Secure Socket Tunneling Protocol (SSTP).
If you aren’t up for that, there is a PPA available at:
You can add this PPA to your Software Sources, but I felt better just downloading the individual packages files. In this case, you’ll need to install several packages, in the following order:
- network-manager-sstp-gnome (Listed as a build artifact under network-manager-sstp)
I use gdebi to install packages as it’s still snappier than the Ubuntu Software Center.
