I am fairly new to the NetworkManager, and am trying to understand how
to enable additional debug information for a failing OpenVPN connection.

I've installed the OpenVPN plugin, but I am not getting enough
information in /var/log/messages and would like to see if there is a way
to enable additional information.  Is there some configuration flag
somewhere that I can enable for this?

killall -TERM nm-openvpn-service
/path/to/nm-openvpn-service --debug --persist

that works for newer versions of nm-openvpn (like 0.8.1 and later); for
earlier versions you may need to:

killall -TERM nm-openvpn-service
OPENVPN_DEBUG=1 /path/to/nm-openvpn-service --persist

where of course /path/to/ gets replaced with where that binary lives;
for non-Debian systems it's usually /usr/libexec otherwise I'm not sure
where it lives.


Thanks for the quick response. Am running Fedora 14 and have NetworkManager-openvpn-0.8.1-1.fc14.i686 installed.

When I try your suggestions, I get the following messages (non-root account):

[eric@eric-laptop ~]$ killall -TERM nm-openvpn-servicenm-openvpn-service: no process found

[eric@eric-laptop ~]$ /usr/libexec/nm-openvpn-service --debug --persist
** (process:8434): WARNING **: <WARN> constructor(): Connection ":1.134" is not allowed to own the service "org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.openvpn" due to security policies in the configuration file

Any suggestions / ideas?
