I don't see anywhere in the config window where it tells me. I think I
have a pptp plugin. On the connection page, the only connection type
option is Windows pptp, which is what I want to use. Just today I tried
the openvpn plugin (no idea which version). But the openvpn plugin
didn't make any difference in the behavior or the config options.

I don't find anywhere on the NetworkManager help page that tells me
anything about plugins, as I don't find anything that guides me through
the various config possibilities that appear on the VPN config dialog.
Am I missing a source of info somewhere?
