    This is great, thank you very much! BTW, to eliminate having to manually stop xl2tpd each boot, you can just disable the service with `sudo systemctl disable xl2tpd` and you won’t have to stop it each boot. The Meraki VPN does not use that service at all.

    This worked on Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS. Thank you very much. This has been a real struggle for me. I sent this to a friend at Cisco to see if they could add this process to official documentation and get it supported.

    Thanks! Didn’t need the extra plugins for Ubuntu 19.04 and I then scratched my head in Linux Mint 19.04 when the same procedure didn’t work there.

    Thank your very much. It worked like a charm between my Linux Mint 19.1 notebook and MikroTik router.

    Thanks! WIth your help I was able to set VPN connection on Ubuntu 18.04 with i3wm!

  8. For anyone experiencing “PAP authentication failed” error in journalctl: make sure your Linux updates did not leave behind *.secrets file messing up with the auth. In my case, running sudo rm -f /etc/ipsec.d/nm-l2tp-ipsec*.secrets did the trick and connected successfully.
