Vpnc vpn gnome Plugin

How can I do to add Vpnc vpn Plugin?
In gnome setting I see it’s unflagged, but there isn’t way to simply flag it to enable.

This should get you going hopefully

as suggested in this topic https://en.avm.de/service/fritzbox/fritzbox-7590/knowledge-base/publication/show/1471_Setting-up-a-VPN-connection-to-FRITZ-Box-in-Linux/
but I cannot see this fileds on vpnc setting

Hi @centoasa Do a right click in the main network icon, then Edit Connections, then add a new VPN connection:

Best regards

already done, but my question was where I can add vpn credentials into vpnc plugin?


I set up my NM vpnc plugin by installing vpnc and network-manager-vpnc-gnome, then opening NM settings and adding a new vpn connection

This allows you to insert everything you need. Anyway this will create a file “new vpn connection” in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/, file that you can edit (in sudo) as you prefer.

Being honest, I’ve purged NM plugin after some days of use and now I’m happily using “pure” vpnc:
go to /etc/vpnc and create a new configuration file using default.conf as template; then when you want to connect, simply give sudo vpnc yourConfFile.conf in a terminal and to disconnect sudo vpnc-disconnect … no need to use graphical interface.

now all works well: maybe my budgie not was completely updated and vpnc plugin was not working. I’ve followed same way of @puffettacicciottella
