Description Carl Roth 2006-12-29 11:32:50 EST
Description of problem:

When openvpn interfaces are brought up, the NetworkManagerDispatcher scripts
aren't being run.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an openvpn connection
2. Create a dummy NetworkManagerDispatcher script with side effects (i.e.
touches a file)
3. Start the openvpn interface
4. Verify (by lack of side effects) that dispatcher script did not run
Actual results:

NetworkManagerDispatcher scripts do not run for the 'tap0' device.

Expected results:

All NetworkManagerDispatcher scripts should be run for the openvpn device.  I
would expect that the hook scripts would be run for any network device change,
physical or virtual.

Additional info:

This system has NetworkManager and NetworkManagerDispatcher running, with a few
dispatcher scripts installed.  The hook scripts are being run for the non-vpn
device (eth0 or eth1) but not for the openvpn device tap0.

Have you tried this with Cisco VPN (vpnc) connections. This seems to be a
problem in the VPN subsystem to me, checking this with vpn could make us sure
about this. I'm going to have a look, too.

Sorry, this isn't something I can verify.  I don't have access to a cisco vpn.

I am attempting to run a script based on NetworkManagerDispatcher seeing the
change to a VPN connection.  When connecting with a wireless network on eth1
scripts run fine.  However, when the openvpn connection on tun0 is up,
Dispatcher does not run. 

It seems like this might be a feature request, to have a vpn connect/disconnect
hook similar to the existing hooks with Dispatcher.

Does this problem still exist on F-7/8? Have you had the chance to check with
vpnc. It seems to be a NM problem per se but before reassigning the component I
would like someone to check this.
