Hi, I used to use vpn to connect to the network of the university I work at. That way I can download papers, etc., freely, as if I'm on campus.
VPN used to work perfectly when I used Linux Mint 11. I have set up the same pcf file, and connect the same way. On connecting a notification tells me I am successfully connected to vpn. However, when I look at my ip address it stays the same. I get this:
ip addr 1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 16436 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00 inet 127.0.0.1/8 scope host lo inet6 ::1/128 scope host valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever 2: eth0: <NO-CARRIER,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state DOWN qlen 1000 link/ether e8:9a:8f:97:5a:04 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff 3: wlan0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq state UP qlen 1000 link/ether d0:df:9a:4a:98:12 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff inet 192.168.0.103/24 brd 192.168.0.255 scope global wlan0 inet6 fe80::d2df:9aff:fe4a:9812/64 scope link valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever 4: tun0: <POINTOPOINT,MULTICAST,NOARP,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1412 qdisc pfifo_fast state UNKNOWN qlen 500 link/none inet 18.104.22.168/24 brd 22.214.171.124 scope global tun0
I don't get it: There seems to be two ip addresses: My own local area network ip, and the vpn one of the university I am connected. But when I try to download files or papers, etc., I am treated as if not connected.
Anyone shed any light on this?
