    Default Openvpn and NetworkManager in Suse 10.3

    Good morning everybody,

    I have the problem to get openvpn run with the KNetworkManager of Suse 10.3: I can connect my wlan card to the net without problem. But now I have to build a vpn-connection. If I do this by hand with openvpn using the following configuration file

    configuration file /etc/openvpn/Uni-DSL.conf

    client
    dev tap
    proto udp
    remote vpn3.uni-dsl.de 1194
    cipher AES-128-CBC
    resolv-retry infinite
    nobind
    persist-key
    persist-tun
    mute-replay-warnings
    #ca keys/ca.crt
    ca /etc/openvpn/Uni-DSL.crt
    ns-cert-type server
    verb 3
    auth-user-pass
    float

    everything works fine, too. However, for more convenience, I would now like to achieve the same thing with the openvpn-tool in the knetworkmanager: So I transferred the data of the config file into the openvpn-configuration of knetworkmanager to the best of my knowledge, but failed to obtain a connection: 'The VPN login failed because the VPN program could not connect to the VPN server.'.

    Here the relevant part of the log-file:

    /var/log/NetworkManager

    It seems that the IP-configuration fails. I played around with the settings, but no success.
    Does anyone have a clue what I am doing wrong?
    Thanks for any help in advance.

    Hello Wolfgang, have you figured anything out on this? I've used OpenVPN extensively but never through knetwork manager. I'm setting it up now to have a look but wondered if maybe you've already worked it.

    Hi Stephen,

    no solution so far! But a confirmation of the problem by someone else, so I it seems I am not just doing something stupid...

    Just wondering if this problem was solved yet? Am having the same troubles myself, I can connect on the CLI with the openvpn command, pointing it at my config file. When I transfer the settings from the config file to knetworkmanager, I can't connect to the VPN.
