How to setup VPN on a Linux Machine?
An Apollo III Communicatons' FAQ - Updated Jan. 29, 2011

After having spent a lot of time researching and testing, and getting setups that works on one machine and doesn't work on the next, I decided to go the command line method which rarely fails on other tasks. I'm adding the steps to my collection so that I can easily review it when I setup a new machine, and of course to share the steps of this reoccuring question with the community.

This is configured and tested on a Ubuntu (Version 11.04/11.10) distro and should work on any distro.
