KVpnc is a KDE Desktop Environment frontend for various vpn clients. It supports Cisco VPN (vpnc, vpnclient (proritary client from cisco)), IPSec (FreeS/WAN, OpenS/WAN, stronGswan, racoon), PPTP (pptpclient),L2TP, OpenVPN, VTun and OpenSSH.

Packages for various distros can be downloaded from download page: http://home.gna.org/kvpnc/en/download.html

You need libgcrypt (http://www.g10code.com/p-libgcrypt.html). Crypto++ is now obsolete. One of them is additional needed: vpnc, freeswan, openswan, strongswan, ipsec-tools, pptpclient, l2tpd, xl2tpd, openl2tp, openvpn, vtun, openssh.

 conn established

 by reggler on: Mar 8 2008
Score 50%


I'm able to successfully establish a connection to my company's vpn but...
when the connection is established (on eth0) I don't get access to my DNS anymore. I tried both, "Keep default route , and "Replace default route" but i get the same result. and once I'm connected, I still seem not to be able to get access to the vpn IPs. With Windows it all works flawlessly.
Thanks for help! :)

 no vpnc connect

 by codemonkey on: Apr 5 2008

I had kvpnc working on my old laptop using vpnc but I can't get it to work on my new laptop w/ fresh system install (F8).

I can't see anything significant that's different between the two systems.

I CAN connect with vpnc manually on the command line (w/ no conf file; I entered all parms at the prompts).

Does kvpnc have any tools for me to view what it's doing with vpnc when it tries to connect (i.e. command line, config parms, etc.) so I can troubleshoot this??

I'm running kvpnc version 0.9.0 and vpnc version 0.5.1.

Try latest svn. There is a fix for latest vpnc (some changes in vpnc svn).

Is it possible to use it as a Checkpoint VPN client?

I use their client for windows, but no easy solution is available for Linux. The damn thing keeps me on windows.

 add command line options

Love the app...but b/c of the issue with dead peer detection in vpnc, I can't use it with some sites b/c I get disconnected in a min or so...

Is there a way to add a command line option to the vpnc call?

specifically I need:

--dpd-idle 0

or the config variable:

DPD idle timeout (our side) 0

Added in svn ;) This option also works for the original cisco client.

 OpenvpnManagementHandler raw:

 by prophet55 on: Sep 21 2008
Score 50%

Trying to set up KVpnc using Openvpn. When attempting a connection to my OpenVPN server the attempt gets as far as receiving an IP address from the server but never finishes the connection. KVpnc status remains "Connecting". I have set debug to 20 and have noticed the following error:

debug: OpenvpnManagementHandler raw: >FATAL:script failed: external program fork failed
debug: OpenvpnManagementHandler: got other management message: >FATAL:script failed: external program fork failed
debug: OpenvpnManagementHandler: Disconnected to the OpenVPN manage port (2222)

I do get an IP address from the Openvpn server

debug: Tunnel device: tap0
debug: Tunnel interface IP:
debug: [openvpn raw]: Sat Sep 20 10:06:04 2008 /sbin/ifconfig tap0 netmask mtu 1500 broadcast
debug: [openvpn] Sat Sep 20 10:06:04 2008 /sbin/ifconfig tap0 netmask mtu 1500 broadcast

but that is as far as it goes. Status remains "Connecting" until I manually disconnect.
Anyone have any idea what I can do to correct this problem?
Thank you!

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
