    SLED 12 NetworkManager VPN Configuration

    Hi,

    I have SLED 12 VM running on a VMware Workstation 12. I tried to setup VPN using NetworkManager to connect to our company's Fortigate, but everytime I run "nmcli c up id VPN_ID", I get an error message saying "Connection activation failed: unknown reason."

    Any idea?

    Thanks all

    Spent a lot of time trying to get VPN connection to Fortigate on other distros, finally got it working with the Shrew Soft VPN Client, maybe worth looking into that client...

    Are you connecting using SSL or IPSec?

    Won't you mind sharing how did you configure it?

    Thanks,
    So you got it installed and running? Then it all depends on your setup... but what I needed to do was to give the address of the Fortigate, enter the KeyID string, the preshared key and the username and password.

    Still struggling to get it working. I got this error message

    "negotiation timeout occurred
    Tunnel disabled
    detached from key daemon
    "

    Any idea why?

    Thanks
