sstp-client and ppp dependency conflict?
« on: 2021/01/08, 11:27:20 »
I have been successfully using the sstp-client package from this repository in the past:
http://ppa.launchpad.net/eivnaes/network-manager-sstp/ubuntu
Recently, it stopped working. When I tried to manually install it there is an error stating that it requires ppp (< 2.4.7-3~) but I now have version 2.4.9-1+1.

When I looked at the package description I found odd that it lists the ppp dependency twice with different versions:

Code: [Select]

apt-cache show sstp-client

Is that normal? Is there anything I can do to solve this conflict?

Ubuntu ppa are not debian compatible!
So we can't do anything for your frankendebian, period.

OK, fair enough.
However, sstp-client is the package that my workplace admin specifically recommends as VPN option for Debian users. Also the use on Debian is at least mentioned in the package README, so I guess I am not the only weird one.

Do you know if there is any Debian-friendlier version of creating VPN connections with SSTP that I could use as an alternative? When searching for it I only found examples of others using sstp-client... And I guess you are not suggesting changing my OS? ;-)

User the force aahm the source Luke.
Build a deb from the source-package, that is the clean way for all packages you can't find in debian itself.

@whitenights

Have you tried the network-manager? There you can set up a SSTP-VPN.

@whistler_mb: When I try to use the network manager it tells me that the VPN module is missing once I try to start the SSTP connection (it does not do that for other VPN connections I use with different protocols). I attributed that to the broken sstp-client package?

@towo: OK, I'll try to do that.
