No valid vpn secrets
#232 how to secure our devices using ssl (esp8266, esp32
This patch corrects an error in the previous one. This is focused on the Ubuntu solution http://www.matejunkie.com/how-to-fix-networkmanagers-openvpn-plugin-in-ubuntu-904/, but it has been tweaked to correctly implement “at console.”
I suggest manually installing the patch by editing /etc/dbus-1/system.d/nm-vpnc-service.conf and inserting the new policy between the two existing policies. Due to permissions problems, I was unable to start the system bus service after applying the patch. If this occurs as a result of the previous patch, uninstall /etc/dbus-1/system.d/nm-vpnc-service.conf, reboot, then reinstall NetworkManager-vpnc and manually apply the patch.
This patch makes the nm-vpnc service available to anyone who has access to the console. In most cases, I believe this is appropriate. Another alternative is to build a community with permissions, such as dialout, and then add individual users to that group.
This isn’t a reasonable solution, since the VPN service should only be accessible by root. Nothing a regular user, like at console, can do about it. In Fedora, root is not considered “at console”; this is a feature exclusive to Ubuntu and OpenSUSE.
Openvpn server – mikrotik
I’m getting the same problem as the OP. I followed the instructions and installed Intel-ucode, but it made no difference. The only discrepancy between me and OP is that I’ve never used openVPN effectively. However, I do have a working PPTP VPN link via NetworkManager. I was unable to create an openVPN connection using the NetworkManager interface, but was able to do so using nmcli. Is it necessary to manually configure Gnome Keyring? Extra/libgnome-keyring was already installed, and extra/gnome-keyring was installed as well.

There are times when we don’t have access to a graphical interface (for example, ssh), but we still need to handle VPNs and connections. Network Manager has a console interface in Linux, known as nmcli.
nmcli – is a command-line tool for monitoring and reporting network status in NetworkManager. It can be used in place of nm-applet or any other graphical client. nmcli is a command-line interface for creating, displaying, modifying, removing, activating, and deactivating network connections, as well as monitoring and viewing network device status.
For instance, after a crash, I use nmcli to automatically restore the link, which prevented me from connecting to the server.
We’ll look at basic operations like creating and breaking a link in this first post. The following is a list of the most important commands:
However, take your time. You won’t be able to create a link if you just type this command. The issue is with the hidden keys. You’ll almost certainly encounter an error similar to this: Link activation failed because there were no legitimate VPN secrets. You will learn a bit more about this topic by clicking here.

I thought the issue could be linked to the GNOME keyring, so I deleted the files under /.gnome2/keyrings, disconnected the VPN link from NM, and started over, but the error still exists. I even installed seahorse to look at the contents of the keyring, and while it does work, it also triggers the dbind-WARNING mentioned earlier.
