Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 464765
Network Manager OpenVPN gui fields for CA and personal certs are swapped.
Last modified: 2008-10-01 02:42:01 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):
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:
certificate fields are switched
certificate fields will not be switched. a pay rise might also be nice.
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.
