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

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

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.

Hi there, are you new to AirVPN? Many of your questions are already answered in this guide. Its Guides Section has guides on Linux/Torrenting/Blocked sites & many other topics too.
Moderators do not speak on behalf of AirVPN. Only the Official Staff account does. Please read the First Questions section in the link above for more details, 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.

Always remember:
There's a guide to AirVPN,

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here,
running TOR exits is discouraged,

using spoilers for your logs helps us read your thread.

Instead of writing me a personal mail, consider contacting me via XMPP at gigan3rd@xmpp.airvpn.org or join the lounge@conference.xmpp.airvpn.org. I might read the mail too late whereas I'm always available on XMPP ;)
