Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I followed these set of instructions: https://www.ipredator.se/guide/openvpn/ubuntu/gnome

But unfortunately, when I connect it fails saying that invalid secrets are the cause. I'm quite sure that my credentials are correct, and network-manager has definitely been restarted.

The syslog output have is here:
