just installed Fedora 32 after years of being with Ubuntu-based distros. Mostly works, except for my corporate VPN access. Symptoms:
That particular network generally does work well with network-manager-openvpn in Debian and Ubuntu up to 20.04.
In F32, it works from the terminal using openvpn .ovpn. In this case, after prompting for credentials it connects almost immediately but DNS lookup for hosts within the corporate network doesn’t work.
Using VPN with network manager is different: I can import and try to connect (which took me a while and a “restorecon” on the ~/.cert folder), but connection will never be established. Error messages once the system gives up:
Thanks for your hints. Well. Unfortunately not. I’ve already been diving through that and related errors before, but none of the solutions outlined here seemed to apply to my particular problem. Not sure what kind of “limitation” could prevent network-manager from starting a VPN connection but not openvpn (terminal) itself… Strange.
