Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1026442
NetworkManager VPN offers neither openvpn nor vpnc
Last modified: 2014-08-28 10:11:26 EDT
Description of problem:
The NetworkManager gui, on adding a VPN, does not offer VPNC or Openvpn,
despite NetWorkManager-openvpn & NetworkManager-vpnc being installed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
100%. Both Gnome and Xfce environments.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to configure VPN
Only Cisco-AnyConnect and L2TP are offered.
F20-alpha DVD install, updated via yum.
Worked under F19.
Both Gnome and Xfce environments.
Installing NetworkManager-gnome-vpnc helps (even under xfce). Perhaps this is a missing dependency issue.
Yeah, the plugin packages were split into two parts (main VPN service and GUI stuff),
So, NetworkManager-vpnc source package now contains NetworkManager-vpnc and NetworkManager-vpnc-gnome packages. NetworkManager-vpnc-gnome is needed for nm-applet/nm-connection-editor.
I can confirm that installing NetworkManager-openvpn-gnome & NetworkManager-vpnc-gnome in Fedora20 allows for vpnc/openvpnc configuration under NetworkManager under XFCE (have not tested in Gnome, but I suspect it works there now too).
Does this mean the dependency has now been added?
