NetworkManager-l2tp 1.0.0 tag is for NetworkManager 1.0 based Linux distributions, and the code is on the nm-1-0 branch. I'm still maintaining it and plan to release newer 1.0.x releases. It's pretty stable.

NetworkManager-l2tp 1.2.0 is for NetworkManager 1.2 which hasn't been released yet, it's currently 1.1.93 (i.e. 1.2-RC1).

NetworkManager-l2tp 1.2.0 tag and pull request was for NetworkManager 1.2 based Fedora 24 pre-alpha release and from a GNOME VPN plugin maintainer. I've since tested it and regrettably found it has issues. I'm in the process of fixing the issues on the master branch and will release a version 1.2.1 hopefully in the next day or so.

Sorry I didn't see you comments till I went back to this web page. I wasn't familiar with Arch Linux dependencies, but what you suggested makes sense. I've since installed Arch Linux after getting a couple of bug reports.

Patch for all previous discussed issues and to bring it up to 1.2.0: (Preview:

- Hard dep on xl2tpd (LT2P is the primary point of the plugin, after all).
- Opt-dep on both libreswan and strongswan (IPSec is optional and it can use either).

Also, 1.2.0 was released 9 hours after you pushed the PKGBUILD for 1.0.0.

Please change the openswan (optional) dependency to libreswan

For IPSec support, NetworkManager-l2tp 1.0.0 does runtime detection for libreswan, if it doesn't detect it, it assumes strongswan. Support for the older openswan package has been removed. Libreswan is more or less the successor of Openswan after a legal dispute on the name.

For L2TP support it uses xl2tpd

xl2tpd and libreswan aren't needed at compile time, so I'm not sure if they should be mandatory or optional dependencies.

The package Description would be more accurate if changed to:

L2TP and L2TP/IPsec support for NetworkManager

Also as mentioned in the previous comment, the Upstream URL is now:

Since openswan was updated l2tp connections no longer work for me. Says something about possible error in spec setup. The only other interesting log message was ipsec auto: unknown option `--verbose'

Has anyone succeeded in establishing a VPN/L2TP connection with Ipsec? I can't make this work.

unknown IPsec command `setup' is caused by a broken symlink in /usr/lib/openswan/setup. link it to /usr/lib/systemd/scripts/ipsec instead and it will work.

Same problem NetworkManager[27103]: /usr/sbin/ipsec: unknown IPsec command `setup' (`ipsec --help' for list)
