log of vpn connection failure and one route that gets set.
Description of problem:
NetworkManager-pptp-0.7.0.99-1.fc11.i586 will not connect my VPN I believe because it is not disabling 40-bit MPPE. Instructions for my VPN specifically state that 40-bit MPPE must be disabled. The pptp plugin edit options allow the following options for security: All Available (default), 128-bit, and 40 bit. I set it to 128-bit, but when I try to connect, I see in the log files that it doesn't seem to disable 40-bit. If I try to connect manually by calling pppd on the command line and setting the require-mppe-128 option, I can connect fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set security to 128-bit
2. activate vpn connection
Authentication seems to work OK, but the connection can not complete.
Connection completes, ppp device is assigned and IP address, routes are set and communications with VPN are established.
I'll include log files of connection failure with NetworkManager, connection success with manual call of pppd, and /etc/ppp/peers/uiuc file.

log of vpn connection success, routes added, and ppp device created

ppp peers file used for successful connection.
I connect manually using "sudo pppd call uiuc"
I found a solution to this problem:
Using gconf-editor edit the VPN connection under system->Networking->connections, unset the "require-mppe" key, add a new key "require-mppe-128", type string, value "yes".
VPN works fine after that. This prevents the 40-bit key from being attempted for VPNs which require only the 128-bit key.
I believe this is fixed upstream by:
It's also bugzilla.gnome.org #596762 for the first one, and lp:371402 for the second.
I'll be posting F11 updates soon for all the VPN plugins.
Tagged and ready to build when NM 0.7.2 hits f11-updates.

I don't know if this problem has morphed, but I seem to be having a segfaulting pptp such as:
This is with:
Side note : Selecting anything other than "All Available (Default)" Security results in "Use Point-to-Point encryption (MPPE)" being disabled.

Do I need to open my own bug report? Because this fix did not fix my pptp VPN
