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

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.

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.
