I have an OpenVPN server for which I have generated ovpn files. This works, as I tested it with the Android OpenVPN client.

I want to use it from the KDE networkmanager plasmoid. There is an option to import the ovpn config there and so I get an OpenVPN entry in my connections. However, when I try to use it, it fails. In my log, I see repeated errors of the form
Code:
nm-openvpn[1531]: Authenticate/Decrypt packet error: cipher final failed

Has anyone done anything similar, encounter the same issue and solve it?

Yes it does.

I had to change the cipher. My logs contained the necessary info, actually:
Code:
WARNING: 'cipher' is used inconsistently, local='cipher BF-CBC', remote='cipher AES-256-CBC'
