If you are network-manager (default) then you will find all the connections in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/ directory. Open the file based on the connection name you want to check and you will find all the relevant information in the file.

Are you comfortable with editing configuration files with a text editor? If so, I believe the answer of where to put the PSK is /etc/ipsec.secrets. You can try something like this: : PSK "strongSwan" The file is documented in man ipsec.secrets or you can read about it here: https://wiki.strongswan.org/projects/strongswan/wiki/IpsecSecrets Let us know ...

Using the nmcli utility, you can get information about Network-Manager's previously-established network connections e.g. nmcli con list To limit the output to specific fields of interest, you can do something like nmcli -f NAME,TIMESTAMP-REAL con list which lists the connection name and time of last connection. You can also do more specific queries by ...

Here are couple of suggestions, but by no means definitive answers: Try different dhcp client If you search with apt-cache search dhcp | less, you will see quite a few alternatives to dhcp that comes by default. For instance, I'd suggest getting dhcpcd. I'm not sure if NetworkManager changes it's settings automatically once you install dhcpcd, but I'd ...

If you're a bit familiar with routing, default gateways and network cards, this is easy: If your machine has an Ethernet port, use that. If not, add an additional WiFi card to the machine. Connect to the Internal VPN using the first NIC. Note the IP address range of the VPN Connect the second NIC to the Internet VPN This should now become the default ...

Having several wireless SSIDs with the same name is fairly common in University dorms and other living arrangements where wifi is provided as part of the rent or lease. The first step I suggest is to check here from the terminal: ls /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/ You will see connection information for many previous networks; for example: ...

I was optimistic about recovering this but having seen your apt-get update output, I can see serious issues. You have messed up the system at this point and it's uneconomical to do anything but start again. You're using 12.10. This has been dead for almost a year. No more updates, repos moved. That's why you're getting so many 404s and so many packages ...

Search domain means the domain that will be automatically appended when you only use the hostname for a particular host or computer. This is basically used in a local network. Lets say you have a domain name like xyz.com (it may be available globally or may be local only) and you have 100 computers in the LAN. Now you want this domain name to be ...

Please (after you created the backup copy) edit your /etc/network/interfaces file to the following state by adding the last three lines: auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto wlan0 iface wlan0 inet dhcp pre-up iwconfig wlan0 rate 1M I am not sure if this works as I can't try it out here. Maybe you will lose your wlan0 connection because I missed some ...

it's not part of network manager - but network manager uses 'ifupdown' to connect the internet, and ifupdown let you run scripts on connecting (turning interface up) or disconnecting (turning the interface down) all you should do is to put your script in one of the following directories under /etc/network/: if-pre-up.d/ - to be run before connecting ...

nm-applet disappeared from the Unity menu bar on a recent install of Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS. This may have happened after an apt-get upgrade and a reboot. The solution that worked for me was mentioned in the comments of another post. Some people resolved similar issues by installing/reinstalling libappindicator. I guess Unity moved from status icons to ...

I just had the same issue and Plant Maven's answer was correct. Instead of deleting the config files in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/ I moved them to another folder, so I could compare. The only difference between the old config file and the new one is in a VPN connection I just re-created from scratch and it's the UUID. No idea why the old ...

This is a universal problem with WiFi auto-configuration: It happens under Windows and Ubuntu and seems to happen when a network goes out of range and then comes back. (Sorry, no experience with fruity variations on the same theme) The only time I never had this happen was on a console-only server without network-manager nor wicd, but this was my sole ...
