    Works, with network manager plugin 0.9.8.8 as well, up to Rosa (17.3). On the current Mint 18 beta, the package network-manager-sstp_0.9.8.8-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb can no longer be installed because it insists on ppp 2.4.6 while Sarah comes with 2.4.7 – “Dependency not satisfiable”.

    Sorry to say this exceeds my *nix capabilites to fix.

      Hi Terence,

      We are sorry for the inconvenience. As these are 3rd party packages so unfortunately we cannot be much help in this.

      Let us know if we can help you with anything else!
