• Cannot reconnect vpn after server side disconnection


    Hi,
    I’m using XFCE4 + networkmanager applet on a 3.12.3-1-ARCH kernel.
    I must use pptp vpn to connect to the internet in the university network. sometimes vpn connection disconnects suddenly, and when I want to reconnect, I get such a error: the vpn connection failed. and nothing more to find out why! but when I reboot the system, I can connect again. (while I get that error, I can connect to the vpn through my Android device.)
    any idea?!

  • I don’t know how to fix the connection drop but this might help you out with the rebooting:
