Open a terminal and use the following commands to install the necessary packages:
apt-get install network-manager-openvpn-gnome network-manager-pptp network-manager-pptp-gnome network-manager-strongswan network-manager-vpnc network-manager-vpnc-gnome

Type y and enter when asked to install the packages.
Now we need to download the CA certificate from VyprVPN using the following command:

sudo wget -O /etc/openvpn/ca.vyprvpn.com.crt https://www.goldenfrog.com/downloads/ca.vyprvpn.com.crt


Choose OpenVPN as the connection type.

Thank you for providing this info. I do have some questions regarding this method. It seems there are actually a few gaps in the steps required, in order to follow this method ( regardless of whether one wishes to use VyprVPN or not ).

That said, I got as far as inputting the command:

sudo wget -O /etc/openvpn/ca.vyprvpn.com.crt https://www.goldenfrog.com/downloads/ca.vyprvpn.com.crt


After that, is where you lost me.

Assuming that one needs to have an active vpn account with VyprVPN, how exactly are we supposed to navigate after using the terminal with the aforementioned commands used to install the necessary packages. (Case in point, I already installed the package according to your initial instructions, however, after that, you did not provide a very clear next step ).

Please read your previous posted instructions carefully, because, there are obvious gaps in the instruction process.

I'd love to try your method, however, without a complete instruction set, I'm afraid my efforts will be dead in the water.

Thanks for your time.
