Description Hiran Arias 2008-10-18 04:49:44 UTC
Description of problem:
There is no DH field for defining the Diffie  Hellman file (dh.pem) which is require for tls-server connection.

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

How reproducible:
Create a new OpenVPN connection

Actual results:
No DH field

Expected results:
It should be a DH field for TLS connections.

Additional info:
Still if you use the import button on a config file that has the dh parameter then it is used in the connection even when isn't show in the edit window.

Currently, there is no tls option in the upstream source except --tls-auth (In special I had no 'tls-server' as a result of grepping 'tls' in the source.
If you feel that you need more options for tls stuff, you should make a feature request upstream.
I will close that bug, as it is definitely something I cannot handle from here ;)

Comment 2 Dan Williams 2008-10-20 16:38:08 UTC
Yeah, the NM openvpn plugin uses --client mode, and not --tls-server.  Thus --dh isn't applicable.
