Integrating Ubuntu with a Windows-based network is harder than it should be

WTF, VPN hard?


Install network-manager-pptp ("apt-get install network-manager-pptp" or use Synaptic).
Click NetworkManager->VPN Connections->Configure VPN...
Click Add.
Click Forward.
Choose Connect To: PPTP Tunnel.
Click Forward.
Enter connection name and gateway IP.
Click Forward.
Click Apply.
Click NetworkManager->VPN Connections->NewConnectionName.
Enjoy.


Note: If you don't want to use the VPN connection for everything, during configuration, also browse to "routing" tab, and limit the IP's the VPN is used for.
