Network Manager Auto-VPN start on login

Postby Eternally on Tue Nov 26, 2013 4:03 am

Hi recently started using Linux Mint KDE coming from a long time windows background, I wanted a big change in my OS experience. I am starting to like the Linux OS very much.

I have been searching around allot on the net on other programs and scripts on how to enable vpn to automatically start after login but still no luck. I read somewhere that the VPN system is broken in the Network Manager.

I would really appreciate any help I cant get on this.

Manage Connections - VPN - Edit - Connect Automatically

Does that work for you?

Don't know what you have found so far, but may need to use some commands attached to the network manager applet on login or boot-up of your machine
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VPNClient
    VPNC
    The Cisco VPNC client is available in the vpnc package (SPM).
    Configuration files are stored in /etc/vpnc, which was protected to root on my installation so you might need to use sudo for all commands here. Copy example.conf to myvpn.conf
The area of inquiry I would be checking into!

sudo cp /etc/vpnc/example.conf /etc/vpnc/myvpn.conf
and edit the new file to look like this:


Also the VPN connection must also work, and then it would be a matter of inteconnecting the two aps
  • Network manager or nm-applet
  • And your partyicaular VPN client and server connections..

http://askubuntu.com/questions/43465/ho ... rk-manager
--there were apparently some bugs with openVPN, however this link offers some work-arounds, and if that isn't helpful, then the script samples ( or just the commands being used) may be of some value to you..

Ubuntu's pages on this isue, may work ..

That's my try at the problem initially..

Thanks for the link on the vpnautoconnect program I have currently extracted the packages and I'm trying to ./configure through the folder but it says I need dbus-glib-1. Then I tried apt-get install dbus-glib-1, but then it says Unable to locate package dbus-glib-1
