I'm trying to use a free service using the OpenVPN protocol using OpenVPN's GUI module in the network manager.
The config worked perfectly well as
.ovpn on Windows. The behavior in Windows is such that I ran OpenVPN GUI and chose to connect to this particular VPN. It would then show the activity in the attempt to connect and opens a dialog box for username/password authentication.
I've successfully imported all the configurations by changing the file type to
.conf and using the import feature in network manager. However, attempting to connect would simply display the network manager's attempting to connect animation, but ultimately end with a notification of connection timing out. No prompt asking for authentication would appear at all, nor can I find any feature to prefix the authentication details.

See the man page # if your proxy server requires # authentication. ;http-proxy-retry # retry on connection failures ;http-proxy [proxy server] [proxy port #]
Needless to say, but I've downloaded all the required packages for setting up OpenVPN connections.
By the way, as you can see above,
.crt files location are specified to be in the same directory as the config file. After importing the config file, if I were to remove them, would it cause any problem? Note, I haven't removed them, so the problem I'm facing is not due to the absence of these files.
