I am using Fedora 10, Network manager openvpn plugin (NetworkManager-openvpn-0.7.0-18.svn11.fc10.i386) and openvpn-2.1-0.29.rc15.fc10.i386.
I can connect to my remote openvpn server using the openvpn command line:
# openvpn --config myvpn.ovpn --script-security 2
Enter Private Key Password:
Initialization Sequence Completed
..and I access all hosts on VPN side. No problems at all.
The question is: How to setup a similar connection using NM ?
The command above uses 2 files: myvpn.ovpn and mypkcs-file.p12
#OpenVPN Server conf
remote 126.96.36.199 1194
#obfuscated OVPN IP gateway
mypkcs-file.p12 is in the same directory is myvpn.ovpn and it is a data/binary file. I got both files from my OVPN server (a smoothwall with the zerina mod)
On windows, I am using openVPNGUI from http://openvpn.se
. On windows, I need just to drop both files on a config file and I am ready to go.
Any ideas about how to configure NM-openvpn ? It has several options and types and it request several files I don't have....
It is NM-openvpn applet compatible with this specific openvpn setup ?
thanks for any inputs.
