Specs: Linux x86_64
Hi
I am an arch linux user. I have purchased a VPN account from a local vpn provider. Its a l2tp over ipsec (type) connection. I have installed "networkmanager-l2tp" from AUR and created VPN connection from NetworkManager but the problem is that it is iving following error:
[quote]The vpn connection "MyVPN" failed because the connection attempt tImed out[/quote]
Here is the configuration from NetworkManager:
[code]
[connection]
id=MYVPN
type=vpn
autoconnect=false
permissions=user:xguest2587:;
secondaries=

[vpn]
password-flags=0
ipsec-group-name=<my_vpn>
require-mppe=yes
user=<vpn_username>
ipsec-psk=<my_psk>
refuse-eap=yes
refuse-chap=yes
ipsec-gateway-id=<gateway_id>
gateway=<vpnserver.com>
refuse-pap=yes
service-type=org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.l2tp

[vpn-secrets]
password=<vpn_password>

[ipv4]
dns-search=
method=auto

[ipv6]
dns-search=
method=auto
[/code]
Why VPN is giving a timeout error? Is there any problem in this config file? Kindly help me to fix this problem.
Regards

You have to check with your VPN provider for the correct parameters.
They can also advice you what VPN client to use.

They are providing support for Windows, Android, iOS and OSX, but not for Linux :(
However, they guide for OSX shows that its l2tp over ipsec connection.

OSX is half Linux. What VPN client your provider suggest for OSX?

If I look in the build-in VPN client on OSX:
Is the (Authentication) "Group name" optional or does the provider needs an entry?

Check for capital letters and 0 or O or l or 1 etc. in your settings/authentication
