When I try to activate an OpenVPN connection using the network manager command:
nmcli connection up vpn_conn
I get the following error:
Error: Connection activation failed: Could not find source connection.
I only get the error when there is no gateway set on the ethernet connection. Does anyone know why?
I added unicast static routes to the vpn server. What is more interesting is if I set a fake gateway/default route on the ethernet connection, something like 127.0.0.1 everything works just fine. It seems as though network manager will not even attempt to create the vpn connection if there is no gateway set.
Is this a bug? Where do I report it? How do I fix it?
