    2. Click "+" button
    3. Select "VPN" for "Interface"
    4. Select "PPTP" for "VPN"
    5. Enter service name as "ABC" (of coz, using my company's name)
    6. Click "Create"
    7. Enter Server Address - (my company's server address looks like an IP. i.e. xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx)
    8. Enter Account Name - vpn_henrychan
    9. Click "Authentication Settings..." button
    10. Enter in the password
    11. Click "OK"
    12. Click "Apply"
    13. Click "Connect"
    14. It prompt my password has expired (my tech colleague already told me this will prompt) - as attachment
    15. I entered in new password, then confirm new password, and click "OK"
    16. Then I get an error message - "Authentication Failed" - as attached
