I know how to write and when to put OpenVPN's config files for clients but I would like to be able to see the config files generated by network-manager-openvpn plugin. (For instance to change logging verbosity)

Namely this one:

enter image description here

Any idea where are they stored ?

    /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections According to this. Although, it looks like the vpn configs are in /etc/NetworkManager/VPN – Zetrocker Jan 18 '14 at 18:13
  • @Zetrocker In 13.10 where I have been looking for this I have it under /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/MyVPN_connection. You can post an answer I will accept it . – Patryk Jan 19 '14 at 19:59

According to this in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections. Although, it looks like the VPN configs are in /etc/NetworkManager/VPN


I think your client configuration file is located at /etc/openvpn/client.conf.

The following command should allow access:

sudo gedit /etc/openvpn/client.conf

Good luck.

    NetworkManager's configuration for OpenVPN is not stored in /etc/openvpn. – Eric Carvalho Apr 18 '14 at 18:15
