Description of problem:
Connecting to a Cisco VPN with vpnc via NetworkManager fails

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure vpnc connection
2. Try to connect
Actual results:
Connection fails immediately with "The VPN connection 'XXX' failed", and no other details.

Expected results:
Should connect

Additional info:
I'm using an RSA token, so the password is never saved.  The group password is saved.

Strace shows (XXX=redacted):
4573  read(0, "Script /usr/libexec/nm-vpnc-service-vpnc-helper\nCisco UDP Encaps
ulation Port 0\nIPSec ID XXX\nDPD idle timeout (our side) 90\nIPSec gatew
ay XX.XX.XX.XX\nNAT Traversal Mode natt\nXauth username XXX\nXauth password 
IPSec secret\n"..., 4096) = 231
4573  read(0, ""..., 4096)              = 0
4573  uname({sys="Linux", node="abulafia.goop.org", ...}) = 0
4573  write(2, "/usr/sbin/vpnc: "..., 16) = 16
4573  write(2, "missing IPSec secret"..., 20) = 20
4573  write(2, "\n"..., 1)              = 1

This was working fine with the previous version (1:0.7.0-10.svn4024).  This is a regression in the Oct 12 update (1:0.7.0-10.svn4175).
Comment 1 Jeremy Fitzhardinge 2008-10-14 16:04:46 EDT
Oh, connecting directly with vpnc continues to work fine.
