EOS 4 OpenVPN Bug

Hello :slight_smile: I just installed Endless 4.0.0 and it works great so far but there is a bug with the new OpenVPN option - the Add button stays greyed out even after you enter all the required data. See the attached screenshot.

Something that would help us a lot to understand the problem would be this:

  1. Open the application called โ€˜Terminalโ€™
  2. In this application run the command:

eos-diagnostics

  1. The above command will create a file with the information of your system (example: eos-diagnostic-160614_111731_UTC + 0100.txt); Send us this file so we can analyze and see a possible solution

Looks like you are required to provide a CA certificate. Does this differ from other OpenVPN clients?
If you donโ€™t have a more specific CA, you could try providing /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt in that field which is a collection of the internet root CAs.

Hello, Daniel,
Thank you - this workaround allowed me to create the VPN profile. Unfortunately, there is no way to specify user group and to add secondary dynamic password.

Weโ€™re just shipping the standard UI here, maybe you can ask about this on the NetworkManager mailing list, including comparisons to how this looks on other platforms:

They may be able to suggest workarounds or improve the functionality for future versions.
