This is an openvpn configuration.

You can use it with openvpn program directly, or (as you are on the
NetworkManager mailinglist) use the nm-openvpn plugin.

Make sure you have the plugin installed, it's called something like
NetworkManager-openvpn. Probably your distribution has a second package

Start nm-connection-editor. Then "Add" and "import a saved VPN

If importing doesn't work you can also use nm-connection-editor to
create such a configuration by creating a new openvpn typed connection
and configure it appropriately...
