Description Psy[H[] 2015-07-02 10:39:36 UTC
Network manager does not get MTU/MRU values from PPTP server, nor it gives user ability to set them manually.
Please add support for setting MTU/MRU manually in PPTP connection.
It also should be possible to get values from PPTP server when connecting.
Comment 1 André Klapper 2020-11-12 14:34:57 UTC is being shut down in favor of a GitLab instance. 
We are closing all old bug reports and feature requests in GNOME Bugzilla which have not seen updates for a long time.

If you still use NetworkManager and if you still see this bug / want this feature in a recent and supported version of NetworkManager, then please feel free to report it at

Thank you for creating this report and we are sorry it could not be implemented (workforce and time is unfortunately limited).
