Ubuntu Networking :: The VPN Connection '<insert Name Here>' Failed Because Of Invalid VPN Secrets

Jan 19, 2011

I keep getting this error message:

The VPN connection '<insert name here>' failed because of invalid VPN secrets

I have Ubuntu 10.10 installed on a Dell Latitude D600. It's a fresh brand new install. After I installed all the updates, I proceeded to install network-manager-vpnc. Then, I imported .pcf files so that I can connect to the office VPN,but it gives me the error message above.I have gone to ~/.gnome2/keyrings and renewed everything.Tried moving them away, and then back again. Created a new keyring. Nothing.

Ubuntu :: Error - Mounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/[insert Hex Code Here] Failed: Invalid Argument

Mar 18, 2010

I'm running Kubuntu Karmic on my Dell Inspiron laptop - about 200 bug fixes behind because my only available internet is a cellular connection on a crappy wi-fi router - and last night, I suspended it, but it shut down instead. Not a problem, it does this fairly often, figure the RAM gets jostled or something.

But when I go to boot it up, it gets stuck at the pre-loading screen before getting garbled and dropping to the shell, where it says "mount: mounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/[insert hex code here] failed: invalid argument". Of course, mounting /root/sys, /root/dev and /root/proc fails, (directory does not exist) and it gives me the busybox initramfs prompt.

Ubuntu :: Error - Work VPN - Failed Because There Were No Valid VPN Secrets

From my laptop I use at work, I exported the ".pcf" file I use with Cisco VPN Client.

I downloaded vpnc using Ubuntu 10.10, imported that pcf file (all of the settings were there). Tried to connect, and it gives me the error saying

Fedora X86/64bit :: Device-mapper - Reload Ioctl Failed - Invalid Argument Failed To Suspend LogVol00

Sep 10, 2009

I've read hundreds of threads on this problem but they seem to be intermittent and the resolution has been using a different kernel version.

I'm using the latest kernel but I still have this problem

Running Logical Volume Manager gui and attempting to extend the volume results in the same error.

Ubuntu Networking :: VPN Connection Failed ?

Nov 16, 2010

I'm trying to get VPN working so that I can browse "from the UK". I got myself a free one hour trial but it's no good, because I can't get it to work!

I added the network using the network manager. I put 'uk.hideipvpn.com' in "gateway". I left "NT domain" blank as I didn't know what it meant.

It says "The VPN connection 'VPN connection 1' failed. I found the following at /var/log/messages:

Ubuntu Networking :: Getting "No Valid Secrets" When Trying To Connect

Jul 13, 2010

I just reinstalled my laptop from 8 to 10.04. Everything works OK except OpenVPN (which worked fine before the reinstall). I'm using Gnome and have installed openvpn along with network-manager-gnome. When I have configured the connection (User and CA certificate and key) and try to connect it fails immediately with "The VPN connection <name> failed because there were no valid VPN secrets."

Here is some output from syslog after a failed attempt:

Jul 13 12:57:42 aurora NetworkManager: <info> Starting VPN service 'org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.openvpn'...
Jul 13 12:57:42 aurora NetworkManager: <info> VPN service 'org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.openvpn' started

Ubuntu Networking :: Connection Failed: Unable To Get IP Address

Apr 24, 2010

So I got Ubuntu 9.10 on my laptop working really neat and wanted to upgrade my desktop to 9.10 as well. So I reinstalled Ubuntu there and now I can't connect to my network anymore....

I have a usb wireless adapter (currently Sitecom as I bought a new one today to hopefully fix it, but ended up at exactly the same problem as with my old adapter). The network manager I'm using now is Wicd since some topics I was looking through were about malfunctioning GNOME network-manager (which I removed) and suggested to try this. The GNOME network-manager kept prompting to insert my WEP network key which was a correct one. When I removed all security from the network it didn't prompt anything anymore but just failed to connect. The Wicd network manager is so nice to tell me that it cannot obtain the IP address however, so I suspect that this is my main issue... but I have no idea what I can do about this? Tried using a static IP and then I get the message "Connection failed: Could not contact the wireless access point."

I feel powerless as my knowledge here is just lacking..

Ubuntu Networking :: Router Too Far Away - Failed To Establish Connection

May 3, 2010

Dual boot Vista Basic and Ubuntu 10.04 on low spec PC. I can connect to the wireless when I am next to it. I move to the room where the computer is normally used and I lose connection. I can still see it but it fails to establish a connection. Okay, sounds like it's just too far way but when I re-boot and use Vista, it works fine (1 or 2 bars, but it works). Is this a driver issue? Anything I can do apart from move my wireless router?

Ubuntu Networking :: SSL Handshake Failed - Secure Connection Truncated

Jun 16, 2010

I'm having a problem with Subversion. When I try an "svn up" it gives me this error message:
SSL handshake failed: Secure connection truncated
I'm running Ubuntu 10/4 but I also had this problem with 9/10. Does anyone know what this error message means? It appears to be an SSL problem but it's not clear to me what exactly the problem is. I do not have this problem with svn on my other office computer, nor my home computer. FYI, I'm running subversion on the Regina project.

The full error message is this:
svn up
svn: OPTIONS of '[URL]': SSL handshake failed: Secure connection truncated [URL]. Although I don't think there's anything specific to Regina about this svn problem, as I mentioned, I can "svn up" from home, or from my other office computer.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connection Failed And Suddenly Stopped Working

Jul 4, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 10.4 side by side with my Vista. This is on a PC I leave on permanently and use as a sort of Sever, so Security and Network connection are VERY important on this device. I use it for documents and IP PBX (telephone system). I currently use Vista and 3CX, but I plan to roll it over to Unbuntu full time once its up and runnng correctly - I will just need to change the Grub2 conf priority. After install, all was fine and I managed to make many changes to settings, apps and updates, but I have noticed in the past week when going in to make further changes the network has suddenly stopped working! According to Network Manager and the icon on the panel it is connected and I can not see anything obvious that is not correct. I tried doing a PING ( from Network Manager to the main router, but it failed. I know that there is nothing wrong with the network nor the card or PC it all sits on. It's working now with Vista and my other machines. It must be a config some-where.

Ubuntu Networking :: EeePC 1000HG + VirginBroadband Australia - Connection Failed

May 1, 2010

I have an eeePC 1000HG, basically identical to the 1000H but with an integrated 3G modem.

Mostly the netbook works fine, the only big problem is the 3G modem will not connect to the network.I added a "Mobile Broadband" network connection from the network icon at the top right.The OS has detected a modem, it reports as a "HUAWEI Technology HUAWEI Mobile" in the mobile broadband network setup wizard, and as the follwing with lsusb;

Bus 001 Device 002: ID 12d1:1001 Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. E620 USB Modem I don't know whether that's correct - I can't find information anywhere which definitively specifies which model of modem is in there.... I did find some reference to it being a Huawei E770V, but I don't know if that's true or not. I have installed the modeswitch packages from Synaptic, which made no apparent difference.

I followed the wizard and picked Australia as a location and Virgin Mobile as a provider and Mobile Broadband as a billing plan.When I try and connect I just get an error saying the connection failed.The modem worked out of the box under eeebuntu 3.

Networking :: Cannot Connect To Router Via Wireless - Connection Failed

Jan 6, 2011

I've been at this the last 3 hours now or so. I am not a very good with Linux, I am fine with all other areas. I have this laptop, with a Intel Pro 2200BG card. The idea was to install a lxde lightwieght on it and use PCLINUXOS, because its "easy". This computer is for internet browsing and thats it. Under the Network Center -- I can see all networks, including neighbours. When I try to connect to my router via Wireless, I get connection failed over and over.

I then tried doing all the following:
Changing the router from WEP to, WPA, WPA2 personal, WPA2 Enterprise
Changing the SSID, broadcasting to ON, changing the SSID name
I've used various different passwords, and reset the router now about 50 times. I am connecting to my Router (as Ive changed the SSID and noticed it picks up the new name). (Yes I can see the correct MAC addreess). Yes I am on the right channel, all good here.

My Nintendo DS is connecting fine with all the changed settings now. The wireless card worked fine under Windows XP (However I just removed the operating system since I really had no need for it). I've tried every other mode, it works wired. Like I had explained above, I downloaded a what I thought was an easy verison (distro), I was really hoping to get away from the crazy windows life with crazy errors and instability.

I did try enabling display log, and doing it manually by adding a connection, etc. The log tells me about as less would a windows event log: it says
Problems occurred during the network connectivity test
This can be caused by invalid network config or problems w/ your momde / router
Reluanch, etc.

I can connect to the internet fine with wvdial and wvdialconf; heck I am even posting from my PCLinuxOS FM Distro. I want to setup an ethernet connection between two PC's, one running PCLOS 2010.11 FullMonty and the other Knoppix 6.2.0. Knoppix is fine and setting up a connection is simple but with PCLOS I have been having many problems trying to set it up. I tried using the drakconnect tool but it did not work. I tried assigning it a static IP Address but the other PC would still not pick it up and to to it all I keep getting the same error message about problems during the network connectivity test!

Ubuntu Networking :: 'internal Fault. Hal Has Failed To Initiate' And The Wifi Connection Does Not Work

Jan 27, 2011

I have an Acer one with this peculiar operating system which I don't understand. I have had it a couple of years and it has hardly been used. It has always worked well and connected up to my WiFi until today when after it has booted I get 'internal fault. Hal has failed to initiate' and the Wifi connection does not work. I am perfectly familiar with Windows but I haven't a clue with this one. Have found a post on this forum relating to this fault but I am afraid it was double Dutch to me. I don't even know how to access it's inner system let along enter any commands.

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

Yesterday I did an upgrade and today my box is unable to connect to the internet.

I have tried another cable, it didn't help.

Basically NetworkManager does not connect eth0 to the network, if I try to run ifup from the command line I get:


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 :: Establishing A Vpn Connection Using Vpnc / Error Failed To Bind To Address Already In Use?

Nov 24, 2010

I am having difficulties in establishing a vpn connection using vpnc (or NetworkManaager-vpnc).

As long as the openswan IPsec daemon is running, vpnc-helper quits with the error message


Failed to bind to Address already in use
[user@computer ...]# vpnc-helper --local--port 0

If I use NetworkManager-vpnc, then establishing the connection simply fails.
Using the --local-port 0 option does not change anything.

If I stop the ipsec service (service ipsec stop) then establishing the connectiong works, both with NetworkManager-vpnc and the console tool, but apparently the network traffic is not routed via the VPN - in my case this means that I cannot access hosts within the vpn and stuff.

Funny thing is - on my notebook from where I connect via WLAN, everything works fine. With Fedora 13 everything works fine, too.

Does anybody have an idea how to enforce that the vpn connection is actually used?
