problem with connection, and bug with icon

Post by smn » Thu Apr 26, 2012 5:55 am


Some new littles problems (not important, VPN continue working) :

- It's the second time that the green icon indicating VPN is up disapear from the window's bar. But, if you right click on the place this icon was last positionned, you have the contextuel menu and you can do what you want.
I have tried to disconnect, and after this, the icon was visible (in red this time!)

- Second point : I have unplugged the network cable from my laptop, I saw (only in the status) that Openvpn tried to reconnect automatically. But the icon stay always in green, even when the connection is not yet established !

- Third point : Also, from time to time, when I want to connect to a VPN, after clicking to "Connect", the status windows opened, but nothing appears in it. The connection didn't get up. The menu 'connect' stay in grey. In this case, if I click on disconnect, nothing append, except than in this case, the menu Connect and Disconnect thay greyed. The only solution I found in this case is to kill the OpenVPN process and launch it one more time

Hope this informations will help !
