Description Giuseppe Paterno 2006-11-24 13:28:36 UTC
Description of problem:
NetworkManager-OpenVPN seems not to support other ports rather than the standard
OpenVPN. A parameter is needed to specify a remote port different than 1194.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.3.2-7.fc6

Comment 1 Sean E. Millichamp 2006-12-08 21:52:19 UTC
Agreed.  I need the ability to set OpenVPN to use port 443 (which we have as an
option at work to get around many restrictive firewalls).  I tried the form
'hostname:443' and it did not do the right thing.

Comment 2 Tim Niemueller 2006-12-25 01:47:49 UTC
There is a "hidden" option available through GConf to set the remote port. We
didn't want to put another field on the already-full configuration dialog.
Having the option to set hostname:port as remote host would be a way out of this
dilemma though which I will investigate during the next few days.

To get it working for now use the GConf editor and edit
/system/networking/vpn_connections/YOUR_VPN (where YOUR_VPN is the name of your
VPN connection) and add two items to the vpn_data list, the first item of this
pair has to be "port" and the second one the port number. Merry Christmas!

The current release has a port entry field in the advanced settings.
