Ubuntu Gutsy - PPtTP configuration

What a pain?! Apparently, network-manager-pptp doesn't work in gutsy, and I even had issues with pptpconfig... I ended up writing shell scripts to start and stop my vpn, and everything is happy now...

Here are some links which helped me to figure out the configuration for work:

http://pptpclient.sourceforge.net/howto-ubuntu.phtml

I paid attention to the configuring-by-hand sections, as none of the others worked for me. Plus, the amazing staff at St. Olaf College IIT!
