Fedora Networking :: Unable To Start An Openvpn-connection Via The "nmcli"-command To Control NetworkManager

Jun 4, 2011

As I reported in this bug:[URL].. root is not able to start an openvpn-connection via the "nmcli"-command to control NetworkManager, whereas my user does not run in any problems with this command. My error output when starting as root is as follows:

# nmcli con up id "my-openvpn"
Active connection state: unknown
Active connection path: /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/ActiveConnection/5
state: VPN connecting (need authentication) (2)
Error: Connection activation failed: no valid VPN secrets.

Does anybody know what to do about this strange behaviour? The vpn-secret seems to be stored in the gnome-keyring and in the /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/my-openvpn simultaneously. But root cannot access any of these. Why this is important? I'm trying to set up a dispatcher-script to automatically start openvpn on eth-connection. but this does throw the exact error from above (no valid vpn secrets..).

Ubuntu Networking :: Gray - Apply - Button In NetworkManager Openvpn Connection Window

Nov 19, 2010

I installed all the necessary packages for the networkmanager-openvpn function to function. The openvpn-connection-setting are successfully imported into the networkmanger via the conf file but the apply button is grayed out, so that actually saving and using the connection isn't possible? Does anyone know, where the problem is? It's a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10 after the upgrade from 10.04 sent the networkmanger down the drain.

Fedora Networking :: Using NMCLI To Bring Up Mobile Internet Connection

Sep 19, 2010

I can use nmcli to bring down and back up again my wireless connections but it doesn't seem to work with my "Mobile Broadband" connections. It works to bring down my mobile internet with :

nmcli con down id OptusInet
But when I try to bring it up again with :
nmcli con down id OptusInet
It says :

Error: No suitable device found: no device found for connection 'OptusInet'.
Even when I add the device with :

nmcli con up id "OptusInet" iface ttyUSB0
It says :

Error: No suitable device found: device 'ttyUSB0' not compatible with connection 'OptusInet'.
Am I doing something wrong?? Any ideas anyone??

Device info for my mobile device :
[my_prompt]$ nmcli -p dev list .....

Ubuntu Networking :: OpenVPN Connection - Unable To Correctly Connect ?

Sep 7, 2010

I have setup an OpenVPN server on Ubuntu server. I am able to connect with Windows clients. I am, however, unable to correctly connect using Ubuntu.

If the router firewall is blocking the pings to keep the connection alive, then the connection initially does not work, but will work after the first timeout and reconnect. If the firewall does not block the pings then the initial connection attempt never times and therefore the connection does not work.

Attached is the readout from the client.

The first attempt gives error ERROR: Linux route add command failed: external program exited with error status: 7

Successive attempts work, they just time out every two minutes.

Fedora Networking :: NetworkManager Control Option Resets After Shutdown?

Aug 5, 2011

I am using amahi on a computer that has two Ethernet ports but the one identified by the system as eth0 is nonfunctional (as in hardware is dead). So, because amahi needs to use the wired connection at eth0, i did a binding switch so that the computer would look at what was eth1 as eth0 and what was eth0 as eth1. I have handed control of the network devices to NetworkManager because it really is much easier that way; but, when i turn off my computer and then later turn back on, in the ifcfg-eth0 file (located in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts) the NM_CONTROLLED setting is set back to "no" Because of this, i have to set it back to yes in the network configuration application and restart the Network Manager service for it to work again. after doing so Amahi and network/internet access work as they should. I am not sure if this is of note or not but when the network is working NetworkManger identifies the connection as "System eth1" and when the network is not working it identifies the connection as "Auto eth0" why it would reset itself and what i can do to fix it?

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Use Zonet ZEW2500P Module - NetworkManager Won't Start On Booting

After upgrading to Lucid said adapter is nonfunctional - NetworkManager won't start on booting (I'm using 2870sta module) and it finds no networks - neither does WICD. The device itself is identified: "lsusb" gives a line "Bus 001 Device 005: ID 148f:3070 Ralink Technology Corp." "iwconfig" gives nothing under lo and eth0 and this under wlan0:

And a "lsmod | grep -e rt2 -e rt3" gives:

(Note: I had a similar problem going from Jaunty to Karmic, but blacklisting rt2800usb in my blacklist.conf fixed it. No such luck this time.)Using a Zonet ZEW2500P.x86-64 Lucid.

Networking :: F14 NetworkManager To Autoconnect OpenVPN At Startup?

Jul 5, 2011

I have a Fedora 14 machine, and I have an OpenVPN CentOS 5.5 server installed and running without issues.I've setup the Fedora machine to connect as a client to the server, and all goes pretty well using NetworkManager.What I'm not able to do is getting NetworkManager to autoconnect to the server upon user login. I have the "Auto Connect" marked, but nothing happens at boot/login.

Ubuntu Networking :: NetworkManager Redirecting All Traffic Over OpenVPN?

Jan 16, 2011

I got it set up in the NetworkManager applet (imported the client.ovpn), but when I connect it sends ALL my traffic through the VPN. I would prefer all accesses to the internet go over my normal default gateway, rather then all the way through to the VPN's default gateway.When I connect through the command line:

openvpn --config client.ovpn
I don't have this problem, and accesses to the internet still go over my default gateway on

Ubuntu Networking :: Openvpn Through Networkmanager Doesn't Connect On Lucid

Jul 27, 2010

i have added a vpn connection on my Lucid desktop machine, but every time i try and connect, it fails. I also have the same, identical vpn connection on my karmic install on my laptop. everything works perfectly on Karmic, but Lucid is having problems. I have followed identical steps for creating the vpn connection on both machines: vpn connections can be made in 2 ways, the first is through the network manager, but trying to connect through the nm-applet returns an error about vpn failing to connect and "no valid vpn secrets".

I suspect this is at the root of the problem. The only way for my Lucid machine to successfully connect through the command line is if I run the openvpn command under sudo.

Fedora Networking :: Can't Enable System Connection In KDE NetworkManager?

May 25, 2011

I'm using Fedora 15 with KDE, and in the NetworkManager settings I can't set my Ethernet connection to be a System Connection. The box is greyed out. I assume only root can enable this option, but GUI apps typically ask for an administrator password. I did add my user to the "Administrator" group when I installed and I can use sudo and all that.

Fedora Networking :: F-12 Openvpn Server Does Not Start At Boot

Nov 23, 2009

This was working and stable on f-10 and f-11. Fresh f-12 install including openvpn, Copied /etc/openvpn/* to new system as root from working f-11 syatem. /etc/init.d/openvpn start (and stop) works as advertised HOWEVER when set to start at boot using chkconfig or Services Configuration program, openvpn does not start. I must manually start it every time. When started, it does work without error messages in the log.

I tried removing the NetworkManager-vpn module with no effect. Thought it could somehow be overriding the auto startup of openvpn at boot.

Fedora Networking :: CLI - Nmcli() - Connecting To New Wireless

Oct 31, 2010

I find it interesting that the only CLnetwork manager is nmcli(). Are there others you know and love?

I have been trying to use nmcli(), and I am having some difficulty.

When I run...


I get a great list of available wireless connections, but it seems to me I am not getting the 'right' information, or I do not know how to implement the information I am getting.

When I try to connect using the


It tells me, 'Unkown connection'.

So I wonder in the devices list is the SSID, in the single quotes, not the id the 'up' command requires? Or how do use the SSID? As far as the UUID, this option works for me, but I can only see the UUID if I had already once before connected to this connection. Is there any way to see the UUID of a new connection?

Fedora Networking :: 11 With 4965agn - Configure Wireless Connection Using NetworkManager Right After Booting Up

Jun 13, 2009

The symptom is that NetworkManager repeatedly ask for password to connect to my AP.My AP is secured with WPA-PKI. The problem even happens with Fedora 11 live cd if I'm not quickly configure wireless connection using NetworkManager right after Fedora completes booting up. It means if I promptly configure wireless connection, i'm still able to access Internet. Same thing happens for the first boot of Fedora from hdd. For the second boot or when I dont quickly configure wireless connection when system finished booting up, NetworkManger repeatedly asks for password for AP.

I did try several approaches posted in this forum but problem still persisted. Some of approaches I tried are:

Fedora Networking :: Eth0 Connection Failed - Device Not Managed By NetworkManager

I can see in network configuration settings, that the device has been correctly detected and eth0 interface is correctly activated, yet when I try to uncheck the box manage by NetworkManager and start it manually, it tells me that the cable is disconnected... I've tried two different cables, different ports on my router - no help.

Fedora Networking :: Bridged Networking And NetworkManager - No Network Connection Because Network Isn't Managed

Mar 2, 2011

I have installed qemu/kvm and created a Bridged network connection which works just fine(Windows 7 VM won't work in NAT mode.)

But when I try to use NetworkManager it says that I have no network connection because the network isn't managed, (I set the settings in ifcfg-br0 and ifcfg-eth0 to be managed)

The real problem is that now I can't use my VPN connections (I have many) in NetworkManager.

Is there a way to have both of these pieces of functionality?

I am using FC14

General :: How To Connect To OpenVPN With NetworkManager

Mar 7, 2011

I have installed an OpenVPN server on my OpenWrt 10.03 router [freshly flashed]:


It seems "ok".

I connect my pc to the lan port of the router, and i want to try it out. I'm using Fedora 14 with GNOME. In the NetworkManager applet i set these things: this and this. Ok!. i try to connect, but it fails. Here are the logs: [URL]

one important thing: my routers [the one with the openvpn server] ip address is, and i didn't had to write it nowhere. so how could the networkmanager applet know the ip address of my openvpn server? i think this is the problem, but i just can't find where to write

p.s.: yes, i tried to google for: "No server certificate verification method has been enabled." but i didn't find a thing, and i'm trying for hours now... :

p.s.: if i [on the router]:
iptables -P INPUT ACCEPT

CentOS 5 Networking :: NetworkManager Won't Start / Get It To Work?

Networking :: Openvpn - Newtorkmanager - No VPN Connection Was Active

Jul 12, 2011

I am having problems setting up openvpn with networkmanager. I am running fedora15 with the newest networkmanager. Okay here is some info...

openvpn runs at boot time no problem...

Here is a copy of the boot time message from /var/log/messages


Here is a copy of tun0 from the ifconfig, and also you can see that openvpn is running from the command "netstat -ntl"


Here is the options i am using for server.conf for openvpn.


Okay well when i try to add openvpn to network manager i select the openvpn option and it ask for the required fields.

For gateway i am using ->

ALL other options i am just using the defaults...

Now i am not sure if they options that i am using is correct... if anyone has any input i would love to hear some.

Now when i try to start New VPN Connection from network manager it fails to connect and here is what i am getting from /var/log/messages


If you want to recommend command line options instead of using the network manager gui i am okay with that...
