installed openvpn openswan networkmanager-l2tp plugin
i can create my vpn but it seems i cannot connect
anybody can try to help me ?


Welcome to the forum. Thanks for giving EndeavourOS a try. I hope you enjoy your time here.

I’ll get right to the point. That is probably a question for the IT manager at your company, for a lot of reasons.

This is fairly advanced networking configuration. :slightly_smiling_face:

thank you for your reply judd, i read it but it seems it does not do the job in my case

Hi Pudge, it manager is not available at the moment anyway no problem, i get connection with windows but i just would like to have it fully running in my eneavour PC too so me and my girlfriend can work at the same time
Anyway thank you all guys to let me have some reply

Hi tosal,
welcome to the forum.
You said, you installed openvpn but as far as I know that is another protocol. At my comany we’re using openvpn for the homeoffice-user and ipsec/l2tp for the branch offices.
Maybe you can have a lookt at that thread: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=232659
And try to gather more information, why the connection won’t be established.

Have you installed the xl2tp-package also?

hi DevNul yes i use l2tp shared password protocol
xl2tp package is already installed
as vpn protocol i choose l2tp and in ipsec settings i choose psk shared password
