I am trying to SSH to a machine and initiate a VPN, created whilst in front of the machine through GNOME (Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS);
$ nmcli con NAME UUID TYPE SCOPE TIMESTAMP-REAL Auto eth0 ebd17105-b46d-4405-893e-4da47c592861 802-3-ethernet system never br0 3f94195e-bece-45a4-af6f-400879063ea6 802-3-ethernet system never NAME UUID TYPE SCOPE TIMESTAMP-REAL testvpn 0da910b2-e094-43ed-8c12-fd078fe7d52a vpn user Tue 12 Jul 2011 22:52:39 BST myvpn c6157e94-3713-498d-a9a7-35eb1aae40ab vpn user Mon 11 Jul 2011 22:01:16 BST $ nmcli con up id myvpn Error: No suitable device found: no active connection or device.
I have been searching the Internet but can't find any answers. I think it must be something to do with the fact that eth0 is a member of bridge br0 (I run KVM machines), and I get the same error on another machine which again, has eth0 in br0, for use with KVM.
Do I need to tell nmcli perhaps that br0 is active?
