Description of problem:
When recreating my VPN configurations after upgrading to F8 from F7, I
discovered that when I check "Only use VPN connection for these addresses" the
"Forward" button will be grayed out, meaning I cannot specify the networks I
want to be on the VPN. This also happens when editing an existing VPN
configuration, with the "Apply" butting becoming grayed out instead.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. NM-Applet->VPN Connections->Configure VPN...
2. Go Forward to "Create VPN Connection 2 of 2" and select "Optional" tab
3. Check the "Only use VPN connection for these addresses" box
Actual results:
"Forward" button is grayed out preventing the configuration of networks where
the VPN connection should be used

Expected results:
The "Forward" button would not be grayed out and only connections to the
specified networks will pass over the VPN

Well, checking the button is the first step. Next, you have to specify which
addresses to only use for the VPN, in the form x.x.x.x/n (for example, The next/forward button is disabled because the entry in the
actual addresses text entry is invalid (i.e. empty). Maybe the GUI is confusing,
but i thought the fact that checking the box ungreys/enable the text field below
made this obvious...

I should have mentioned: I tried entering values I used to have in the box, but
the Forward/Apply button never became enabled. Playing around with this more, I
discovered that I was entering things like 10/8 and 192.168.10/24, instead of and The buttons become enabled if I specify all 4
octets. I guess this should become a feature request to support 10/8 along with
Comment 3 Denis Leroy 2007-12-03 10:45:31 EST
This restriction is enforced by NetworkManager itself (see validate_ip4_route()
in NetworkManagerSystem.c), so you should file a bug against NM, preferably
directly upstream.

Closing this :-)
