no VPN conection
I'm really unhappy about the last update. fedora becomes more and more unusable.
The relevant packages that are build from the NetworkManager and NetworkManager-vpnc sources did hardly change for a while. So it's quite unclear, what the problem is.
What is your version of the "NetworkManager" package?
Could you please provide more debugging information?
To enable DEBUG logging in NetworkManager service, add the section
to /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf and restart the service.
For NetworkManager-vpnc please see: https://wiki.gnome.org/NetworkManager/Debugging#Debugging_NetworkManager-vpnc
I can confirm this issue on F19, the curlpit seems the following line:
<warn> /sys/devices/virtual/net/tun0: couldn't determine device driver; ignoring...
I've tried to downgrade libgcrypt, with no effect.
this impacts both openvpn and cisco vpn.
problem still exist, any solution at today?
Is there anybody working on?
Any hint for alternatives (working Distry , other Methods...) to get back the ability connecting by VPN are welcome.
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
