Note that I have manually setup/used openvpn for years, and it works fine when
setup manually (not using NM).

studpid question: Did you enter a password and forgot to check "remember for
this session"?



Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 10:43:45 UTC
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 3 Neal Becker 2008-05-14 11:42:47 UTC
Using x509 cert, not password - if I understand your question.

Comment 4 Neal Becker 2008-05-15 13:06:44 UTC
FYI, this is reproducible.

Comment 5 Christoph Höger 2008-09-17 11:40:06 UTC
Does the latest nm-openvpn version (from updates-testing-newkey) fix that bug?

This should be NetworkManager-openvpn-0.7.0-15.svn4027.fc9.i386

Please note that eventually old connections won't work due to some options that changed during the development.

Comment 6 Dan Williams 2008-09-30 20:24:41 UTC
What was the openvpn config you used to use?  Did it have any of the --persist options enabled?

Comment 7 Bug Zapper 2009-06-10 00:38:49 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:
