Description Tim Burke 2006-03-20 15:14:22 EST
Installed NetworkManager-vpnc
Then went in to th applet menu VPN Connections -> Configure VPN
There I click "Add" and entered the config settings for the RH VPN
now I close out of that

Back on the NetworkManager applet, I'm expecting to see the new connection name
there (Red Hat VPN).  However I don't, its not listed.  Now I go back to
Configure VPN and see that the Red Hat VPN settings are there (so it didn't
forget about it).  Consequently I couldn't get it to use/enable this VPN config.  

Then I rebooted and things worked fine: the "Red Hat VPN" now appears under "VPN

This bug is to note that the initial time you create a new connection config the
applet can't use it until its restarted.

Looks like you have to restart the NM daemon.
Comment 2 Bernard Johnson 2006-07-11 22:39:18 EDT
This is also true of NetworkManager-openvpn.
Comment 3 Denis Leroy 2006-09-28 19:39:01 EDT
Taking ownership.
Comment 4 Matěj Cepl 2007-04-26 04:49:52 EDT
Restarting NetworkManager service doesn't help me here. Maybe related to my
x86_64 installation, but anyway -- NM-vpnc just doesn't work me at all.
Comment 5 Denis Leroy 2007-04-26 04:59:46 EDT
Matej, this on fc-6 or fc-7 ?
Comment 6 Matěj Cepl 2007-04-26 05:14:52 EDT
fc-6 daily updated
Comment 7 Denis Leroy 2007-06-14 18:55:52 EDT
Reassigning to NetworkManager (could somebody change the component to
NetworkManager ? can't seem to be able to do it). The FC-6 version of NM needs a
bunch of patches. This looks like a bug in nm-applet. As far as i can see,
nm-vpn-properties adds the right fields to gconf.
