FS#154 - Vpn doesn't work

When clicking on the Network Manager Applet Symbol, then selecting "VPN Connections" and then "Configure VPN", all the buttons in the following dialoge are greyed out. There is no way to add a new vpn connection. Restarting the system or deactivating the WiFi and then reactivaing it doesn't help.

I haven't got a vpn-connection in order to test it fully, but i might have a solution. You have to install some packages. So be sure that you have enough space left on the internal memory or better are booting from SD-card. I do not know if you need both packages, but after that it seemed to work: - open a terminal - sudo su (switch to root) - opkg update - opkg install openvpn - opkg install networkmanager-openvpn After doing this the "add"-button in the network-manager was not grayed out anymore.

I did what you said, and now I have the add and the import Button. If I press the import Button and load the file I used for setting up my Linux Laptop (it's a *.pcf file), the Network Manager tells me: "Cannot import VPN connection. The file 'xxx.pcf' could not be read or does not contain recognized VPN connection information. Error: unknown OpenVPN file extension." If I open the file with a text editor, the content seems to be alright, the file isn't damaged or anything. If I press the "add" Button, he wants to have an "CA Certificate" (whatever that is), even if I tell him to only use a password. Our university uses Cisco (vpnc), if that helps. Do I have to install another vpn package in order to get it to work?
