I am relatively new to Linux, and have been toying with various distros for about 3 months now. I have settled on openSUSE, as I love it’s beauty, flexibility and the additional challenge (learning curve) it presents. The last 3 days I have been stumped by my inability to set-up a functional VPN tunnel using my Private Internet Access membership. I have searched a plethora of sites, threads, forums that deal with openSUSE, and still haven’t solved the problem. I figured if anyone can help, it would be here. Thank you in advance and namaste!
Let’s start with Network Manager controlling the network. Did you get as far as completing the VPN configuration step? If you got as far as completing the configuration, but the actual connection process fails, the next step is to find out why it is failing. For that I recommend opening a terminal window and monitor the NM logging with
journalctl -f|grep NetworkManager
Now try activating the VPN, and observe/capture the connection process events.
