When trying to add a .ovpn to Gnome network manger with ipv6 enabled (Linux | >=2.4 | UDP 53 Entry 2 | IPv4 & IPv6 (connect with IPv6) | continent > America)

It gives the error seen in the Attached file

The VPN Plugin failed to import the VPN connection correctly
configuration error: invalid 1th argument to 'proto' (line 23)
 

With line 23 being

 

proto udp6
 

OS Info

 

System:    Kernel: 4.19.7-103.current x86_64 bits: 64 compiler: gcc v: 8.2.0
           Desktop: Budgie 10.4-85-g36667bcb Distro: Solus 3.9999
 

 

Is this something wrong with the Config Generator or should I contact Solus support and try to debug there

Hello!
 

I don't know much about it, but it's usually not recommended using network manager with AirVPN, if some of the others are to go by.

 

So using Eddie or OpenVPN directly is generally encouraged I think.


Moderators do not speak on behalf of AirVPN. Only the Official Staff account does. Please also do not run Tor Exit Servers behind AirVPN, thank you.
Did you make a guide or how-to for something? Then contact me to get it listed in my new user guide's Guides Section, so that the community can find it more easily.

If it's not too late, make sure the network-manager-openvpn(-gnome) package is installed:

dpkg-query -l "network-manager-openvpn*"

It seems like this thing doesn't support IPv6 UDP connections, or runs into an error parsing it (which might be a temporary issue). Try an upgrade if the plugin is installed.
