[Resolved] Corporate (Cisco) VPN stopped working after network-manager update

Post by the_engineer » Fri May 17, 2019 5:27 pm

Hi all,

there was a very recent network-manager patch which appears to break certain VPN functionality on 19.0 and 19.1 (tried on both).
I used VPN configuration from a file which is supplied by my employer, it worked great until this recent update.

When I try to initiate VPN connection, there is no progress spin on the icon, it just instantly quits and does not connect.
I tried reinstalling network-manager-openvpn-gnome and network-manager-vpnc with no success.

Anybody else ran into this issue?

Ok. This one was a false alarm. Coincidentally, our VPN service had major configuration changes the same day Mint released an update for network-manager.
No issues with Mint.
