Description of problem:

I am importing openvpn client settings (client.conf, ca.crt, client.crt, client.key) with NM-gnome. After working around a SElinux issue (#638691), connecting to the vpn still fails. The same procedure works flawlessly on ubuntu 13.04 (nm 0.9.8, openvpn 2.2.1).

Gnome error message:

Connection failed: Activation of network connection failed

journald log messages (excerpt):

WARNING: No server certificate verification method has been enabled.
NOTE: the current --script-security setting may allow this configuration to call user-defined scripts
<warn> VPN connection 'xxcensoredx' did not receive valid IP config information
<warn> (tun0): failed to get device's ifindex

then lots of the following messages (and slight variants of it):
[platform/nm-linux-platform.c:1103] add_object(): Netlink error: Invalid address for specified address family

This seems to be a NM issue, because invoking 

openvpn --config client.conf

establishes the vpn connection.
Comment 2 Jirka Klimes 2013-09-30 05:57:52 EDT
Would you attach full log (from NetworkManager staring, and showing VPN connection attempt)?
* What is your NetworkManager version?
* ip link

1) NetworkManager-
2) ip link: usb3 gigabit ethernet card Digitus DN-3023, driver ax88179. home ADSL behind router

This happens to me also. Workaround with Terminal invocation is working.
