Re: vpn config

Hash: SHA1


I use Ubuntu and I didn't even know that NetworkManager is supporting
vpn-connections. Now I'm very suprised in a positiv manner. But I can
say that I have similar problems - and I am ready to test and try to
help fixing the problem. (If there is truly a problem, maybe I'm just
doing something wrong). See notes below.

I use vpn every day. After selecting my wireless lan (with NM), I
usually start vpn from the commandline. It works just fine. I configured
vpnc that it asks for the password on connect. Everything else is
preconfigured in /etc/vpnc.conf.

Here is my version-output:
# vpnc --version
vpnc version 0.3.3

When I start nm-vpn-properties and click on add, it says
	Cannot add VPN connection
	No suitable VPN software was found on your system.
	Contact your system administator.

My Network-Manager-Version is the one comming with ubuntu:

I hope this helps and I'm also hoping that I don't have to start vpnc
from commandline in the future. :-D
