A problem just popped up. I guess it was caused by the stable update of August 22 or 28.
I can’t get Networkmanager to connect to my work-vpn anymore. The VPN worked fine before. I did not change anything related to networking or the VPN.
When I open the VPN-configuration through Networkmanager, I see that the field for the password for the private key is empty. When I enter the password and click ‘Apply’, the password is not being saved and hence I cannot connect to the VPN.
When I start the VPN from the command line and manually enter the password, the VPN-connection starts normally and works fine.
Conclusion: OpenVPN and my VPN config are fine, and Networkmanager developed amnesia.
How to proceed fixing this problem?
