Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1295955
Unable to connect to more than one VPN
Last modified: 2016-07-19 15:23:57 EDT
Description of problem:
After switching from GNOME3 to MATE, I can no longer connect to more than a single VPN connection. As soon as I am connected to one, all others become greyed out in the UI. invoking vpnc/openconnect via the CLI works. This also works fine in GNOME3, but as I understand, a different applet is used there.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Linux dyasny-enovance-com 4.2.8-200.fc22.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Dec 15 16:50:23 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create several different VPN connections
2. connect to the first
3. try to connect to another
not possible, everything but the disconnect option is greyed out
should be able to connect to multiple VPN connections
confirmed with the MATE team this is a problem in the network-manager-applet component and not with their packages: https://github.com/mate-desktop/mate-applets/issues/176
