    Thumbs up [SOLVED] OpenVPN import problems (kali 2.0)

    Hi guys. Having problems importing my VPN.conf file.. I keep getting the following error

    The file ‘Vpn.conf’ could not be read or does not contain recognised VPN connection information

    Error: unknown error.

    Files worked fine on previous version of kali but after upgrade seems like there is a problem.

    Anyone else having issues adding a VPN to the connection lists?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Hi there !

    Have you tried with the command line :

    openvpn <your-ovpn-file>

    with your crt file in the same directory ?

    It works for me

    If you are wanting to use the GUI network option, you need to have the following installed (guessing its an OpenVPN)

    Code:
    apt-get -y install network-manager-openvpn network-manager-openvpn-gnome
    the 'network-manager*-gnome' package is key if you are wanting the GUI option.
    ...you can also do iodine, openconnect, pptp, vpnc :
    network-manager-iodine - network management framework (iodine plugin core)
    network-manager-iodine-gnome - network management framework (iodine plugin GNOME GUI)
    network-manager-openconnect - network management framework (OpenConnect plugin)
    network-manager-openconnect-gnome - network management framework (OpenConnect plugin GNOME GUI)
    network-manager-openvpn - network management framework (OpenVPN plugin core)
    network-manager-openvpn-gnome - network management framework (OpenVPN plugin GNOME GUI)
    network-manager-pptp - network management framework (PPTP plugin core)
    network-manager-pptp-gnome - network management framework (PPTP plugin GNOME GUI)
    network-manager-vpnc - network management framework (VPNC plugin core)
    network-manager-vpnc-gnome - network management framework (VPNC plugin GNOME GUI)

    ...so to 'have them all':
    Code:
    for VPN in iodine openconnect openvpn pptp vpnc; do
      apt-get -y install network-manager-${VPN} network-manager-${VPN}-gnome
    done
