Re: NM-vpn no vpn secrets

Yes, the X.509 Certificates method is used. The Certificate requires a key, the Key file has no password. The results is that about once in 5  tries the connection gets established, possibly depending on the time between retries.

The workaround just switches to X.509 with password, changes no other settings, and I fill in a bogus username and password as Anton suggests. Now the connection always is established in one try.

Ok, I assume that you are using a TLS connection and the private key is
*not* protected iwth a password?
