Ok so, I am trying to connect to an OpenVPN connection through network manager in OpenSUSE 11.4 KDE . The directions for this particular VPN contain a .conf file to use with openvpn, however as there was no place to enter this in network manager I tried to set it up myself by looking at the .conf file. Here is the file (identifying info converted to #######):

Code:
# Notice to ####### customers:
# 
# Apart from openvpn, you also need to install the
# package "resolvconf", available via apt, e.g.
#
# For those of you behind very restrictive firewalls,
# you can use our tunnels on tcp port 80, as well as
# on udp port 53.

dev tun

proto udp
#proto tcp

remote openvpn.#######.net 1194
#remote openvpn.#######.net 80
#remote openvpn.#######.net 53

# Keep trying indefinitely to resolve the
# host name of the OpenVPN server.  Very useful
# on machines which are not permanently connected
# to the internet such as laptops.
resolv-retry infinite

# Most clients don't need to bind to
# a specific local port number.

# Try to preserve some state across restarts.

# Enable compression on the VPN link.

# Allow calling of built-in executables and user-defined scripts.

up /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf
down /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf

ping 10

ca master.#######.net.crt
cert #######.crt
key #######.key
So I was able to transfer most of the settings such as the ca, cert, key , hostname and port, and turning on lz0 compression. However theres nothing for update-resolv-conf in there. Furthermore, I do not even have resolvconf on my machine as far as I know and cannot find it in the package manager, or through a google search. So this is a multipart question:

a) Do I need to copy that .conf file and crt, key files to /etc/openvpn even though I am using the network manager?

b) Does the resolvconf program exist for SUSE or is it a debian only piece of software?

c) If resolvconf in fact is debian only, is it possible for me to connect to this VPN ?

Please help! Thanks!
