I have a customer that I connect to via the built-in vpn client in Windows XP. Occasionally other co-workers do likewise from their workstations. I'm doing some tidying up and was wondering if there was a simple way to be able to connect to the same vpn endpoint from a Linux desktop.

All I know about their endpoint is that it's some breed of Windows server, so I guess the basic version of my question is:

"accepting that mileage may vary is it generally possible to authenticate with an MS vpn server from a Linux desktop"


You can connect to a windows server doing pptp via PPTP Client. I am not familiar with any of the GUI tools to initiate a pptp connection, but I believe there are a few.
