Since 2005, I’ve been a user of Ubuntu. Ubuntu came out about a year earlier, but I caught on with version 5.10. Since that point, I’ve never looked back. I may have side-stepped a bit, but that’s it (I had a 6 month diversion in to Fedora 10).
One issue I’ve always had with Ubuntu is virtual private networking (VPN). For those of you outside the know, you basically make a secure tunnel between two networks. In my case, I’ve always wanted to connect to the Cisco VPN at CMU for work, but since I’m using Ubuntu I never had any luck… until recently.
Just today, August 4 2009, I have finally made a vpn connection between my laptop running Ubuntu 9.04 and CMU’s cisco VPN.
Working from home just became much easier.
