Description jay dwyer 2008-09-30 07:54:21 EDT
Description of problem:

New network manager openvpn gui has the CA cert and user cert fields swapped, such that the selector for each and what gets stored are vice-versa for each.

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


How reproducible:

update to above version, either open an existing open vpn connection or enter a new one. 

existing one will have the current values swapped ( ie the user cert will be selected in the CA cert field, and vice versa )

adding a new one, when you click to select the CA cert, the file selector actually says in the title 'select your personal cert'

Steps to Reproduce:

see above
Actual results:

certificate fields are switched

Expected results:

certificate fields will not be switched. a pay rise might also be nice.

Additional info:

when you switch the selections to be not what the gui labels say, openvpn connections from NetworkManager ARE actually working, which pleases me very much!

I can confirm that for certificate with password connection type. 

So basically the labels CA_Certificate and User Certificate are swapped. 

Working on it.

Please apply the following patch to 

by entering the parent directory and applying the patch via 
'patch -p1 < PATHTOPATCH/switch_certificate_label.patch' 
where PATHTOPATCH is wherever you stored that patch.

Thank you for your contribution. 
I will close this bug for now - I wont do an update for that task but send the patch upstream. 
Feel free to reopen it, if you find other orthographic mistakes ;)
