If you're using network-manager then I think the configuration is then stored in the gconf structures.

On your old system, can you export the configuration?

Hi Ronald;
I've gotten back to my computer and checked the things you suggest.
I do have network-manager-pptp and network-manager-pptp-gnome
installed both at version 0.8-0ubuntu3

As for the vpn.conf file, the files I could find were all under

these aren't what you're looking for though and appear to be to do with openvpn.
Should this file be under /etc ? Can you point me in the direction of
an example?

Also I was using the network manager app to look at what I had setup,
and clicked on the routes button and there were no routes.
Should this have a route to the server's IP?

Thanks for your help
