There are no GUI to help us to create VPN connections (yet, I hope that this is fixed soon - to speed up progress please upvote VPN Client request). I believe that connman supports VPN connections that you can configure by using cli. However, I have not found any instructions how to setup particulary pptp connection?

I do use PPTP istalled from OpenRepos https://openrepos.net/content/ketilk/pptp

It does need some workaround but basically it works. On infinite dialing you probably need to cean up the ppp-errors logfile, because it gets spammed up when you don't have Internet acces or can't (re)connect for some other reason (done this in cron.daily) When you restart the phone, the /var/run/ppp folder will be misteriously gone, so you just recreate it :) The rest of the configuration is done as in "normal" Linux. Shout if you need assistance.

Worked for me using samle config from here: http://my-symbian.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=44784&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=15 + Adding nameservers and search domains to /etc/resolv.conf + Adding routes to local submets using /sbin/ip route add
