I am trying to connect to my VPN from my tonidoplug. I followed the steps found in PPTP Client.

But I am getting the below error now:

$ sudo pon codeme debug dump logfd 2 nodetach
Couldn't open the /dev/ppp device: No such device or address /usr/sbin/pppd: Please load the ppp_generic kernel module.

From what I found somewhere in the Internet I tried adding the line alias char-major-108 ppp_generic to my /etc/modprobe.d/modules.conf file and rebooted the device. Still am not able to connect to VPN.


It seems that at least part of the problem is that you don't have pppd installed.

Try installing pppd:

$ sudo apt-get install pppd
