The information by the School of Science is outdated/wrong.
"Seems there is no easy way anymore to establish a L2tp VPN connection since OpenSwan has been deprecated and removed in Ubuntu 14.10". However: "A PPA exists now for network-manager-l2tp"


(Tested with Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS on ThinkPad, September 2022)
1. Install the network manager:

  • sudo apt-get install network-manager-l2tp
  • sudo apt-get install network-manager-l2tp-gnome

2. From the "Network" settings, add a new VPN:

  • Select "Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP)", see picture.

3. Fill out the "Identity" (see picture):

  • Gateway: vpn.adm.s.u-tokyo.ac.jp
  • Type: Password
  • User name: your (10-digit) UTokyo user ID
  • Password: your School of Science Password
  • If you are asked for a pre-shared key (PSK) or shared secret: 8bARDjEggGTB

4. Fill out the "IPsec settings"

  • <Tick Enable IPsec tunnel to L2TP host>
  • Pre-shared key: 8bARDjEggGTB
  • Phase1 Algorithms: aes256-sha1-modp1536
  • Phase2 Algorithms: 3des-sha1-modp1536




(Tested with win10 on HP, October 2022)
