Update: I had "Use Certificate" checked and I guess it shouldn't be. Now I'm getting the message, "Necessary secrets for the VPN connection were not provided."

I guess I might not know the password anymore...


Everything looks like it should work. I think I have all the dependencies installed, yet when I try to connect to work, I get a series of useless error messages in syslog:

Code:

That is the log for me saving the configuration in KDE networking and then trying to connect twice.

I guess I need to find the config file and make sure it's correct.

Years ago, this worked fine when I edited my config files by hand, but the GUI and I are not getting along, I guess.

Does anyone have an idea of where to look for the actual messages I can use to figure out what's wrong?

Thanks in advance.
