Re: network-manager does'nt work with openvpn

Nothing all this time?!?!??!

I seriously cannot believe nobody can solve this basic issue. If this is such a problem in Mint, then I can only imagine doing anything relatively advanced.

Re: Save button blank/grayed out in VPN setup (network-manag

How is this basic issue unknown??????

Tried fresh installs of Mint and the button is still missing, so it wasn't anything poorly configured with mine.

Re: Using firejail as security sandbox for your programs

Cheers, xenopeek. To be quite honest the installation seems simple, setting it up and using it on the other hand, not so much! I will see if I can work this.

Where would I find that? I was just detaiing this in general: the Listening Report shows activity on multiple system processes even after they were told to deny in/out traffic under all conditions (UDP/TCP).

Re: Save button blank/grayed out in VPN setup (network-manag

Still having the issue. I can additionally detail that the Save button does not show up on most other connection type configuration windows, either. The only ones Save shows up on are Ethernet and one other. So, this is an issue with my network-manager in general, not just the OpenVPN part of it. Pl...

Re: I need a per-application firewall

Is there a package version of Douane anywhere? I won't bother trying to install that from source. It's not even made for Mint but Arch Linux...

Can anyone please suggest, from experience and not web search, a per-application firewall that works?

Re: Handling of Firewall - allow & deny specific programs

Are you really saying there is no way in any Linux distro to control and maintain your OS network behavior? Ultimately what is being said here, is that privacy and security is not the high points of Linux. I am desperately looking around for per-application firewall and this is not looking good. I h...

Save button blank/grayed out in VPN setup (network-manager)

I do not know what to do. I have installed every variation of network-manager and vpnc, and I cannot get the button to show up to add the connection.

Filled in all correct information (username, password included).
Can confirm the .opvn files are valid as they work on other operating systems.

Re: network-manager does'nt work with openvpn

What the OP is meaing to say is, the "Save" button does not show up upon final step of importing an .ovpn file.

I have the same issue.

I tried to install both vpnc and network-manager-vpnc-gnome and the button still does not show up.

Please help.

Re: Internet Data Use Issue Mystery

Could anyone please explain how to ban all outgoing/incoming traffic completely except chosen ones (such as internet browser), instead of these half fixes?

gUFW still shows system processes querying the internet every few seconds when told to deny all outgoing. Shaking my head...
