NetworkManager applet don't asked username and password openconnect

Hello.
I spend many time for searching some problems with my VPN connection throught NetworkManager openconnect plugin.
I should up VPN by Cisco Any connect. Auth by certificate and username and password.

I have config:
i3wm + networkmanager 1.44.0-1 +networkmanager-openconnect 1.2.10-1  + gnome-keyring (if it needs)


When I push on vnp connection I don't get window for input PEM_pass_phrase, username and password. I got this errors
journalctl -xe

sep 13 00:22:53 redmi NetworkManager[1262]: <info>  [1694553773.1557] vpn[0x56265b4dcb70,7b628aa8-674f-43af-a700-96182110a927,"testVPN"]: starting openconnect

When I connect manually by command
nmcli connection up testVPN --ask
I got VPN connection.


My config is

sudo cat /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/testVPN.nmconnection

I was trying to write password and user in vpn-secrets sections, but it didn't help me. Also I can't found some information about parameters this configs like password-flags and how save username.

All my variants got one error:

A password is required to connect to 'testVPN'.
Warning: password for 'vpn.secrets.gateway' not given in 'passwd-file' and nmcli cannot ask without '--ask' option.
Error: Connection activation failed: No valid secrets

As I understand it, gnome keyring is not running. I was searching different ways to run it but can't to make it with i3wm + sddm. It should to run.

Maybe It can be useful

Re: NetworkManager applet don't asked username and password openconnect

nm-applet should maybe still ask, gkr or not - afaiu it doesn't do that for you?

https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=278836
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=285845 # suggests to explicitly disable GKR in the OpenVPN settings
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=286378 # user actually cancelled, ultimate cause was a bad cipher algo.

Edit: your session is fine, it's not a dbus issue.

Yes it doesn't asked mee.

I read and try this toppics. Nothing help me.

First I installed webkit2gtk-4.1.2

pacman -Q | grep webkit2gtk
webkit2gtk-4.1 2.40.5-2

It didn't help me.

Then I downgrade networkmanager-openconnect to 1.2.8-2

pacman -Q | grep openconnect
networkmanager-openconnect 1.2.8-2
openconnect 1:8.10-1

It is also didn't help.
I have the same error:

secrets: failed to request VPN secrets #3: User canceled the secrets request.

Re: NetworkManager applet don't asked username and password openconnect

Can you try the behavior on openbox?
Just in case that nm-applet doesn't play ball w/ tiling WMs (and needs to be set to floating mode)?

hmm... I'm thinking it will be some problem try with openbox.

So about floating mode. I don't have problem with ask and save WiFi password in float window.

Run

nmcli connection up testVPN

see whether you get asked for credentials and if not, post the system journal

Re: NetworkManager applet don't asked username and password openconnect

I am experiencing this same issue - XFCE here.  After the networkmanager-openconnect upgrade to 1.2.10-1 at the end of May, trying to connect to an anyconnect VPN immediately fails - no username/password entry screen appears.

Via GUI:

The VPN connection ConnectionName failed because there were no valid VPN secrets.

Via CLI:

$ nmcli con up id ConnectionName
A password is required to connect to 'ConnectionName'.
Warning: password for 'vpn.secrets.gateway' not given in 'passwd-file' and nmcli cannot ask without '--ask' option.
Error: Connection activation failed: No valid secrets
Hint: use 'journalctl -xe NM_CONNECTION= + NM_DEVICE=eno1' to get more details.

journalctl shows the same for me as the OP.

This has been reported as an issue, but no action on it so far:
https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/NetworkM … issues/101

For me, "nmcli con up id VPNNAME --ask" works fine, prompting me for my user/pass.  Also, downgrading to networkmanager-openconnect to 1.2.8-2 works for me as well - connecting via GUI again asks for user/pass.  I've created new VPN connections, verified keyrings, etc., but nothing has worked for me.  For now I have added networkmanager-openconnect to my IgnorePkg list in pacman.conf (the only entry in that list) to keep it at the working version, but that's not ideal obviously.

Re: NetworkManager applet don't asked username and password openconnect

Ok, so this is basically about NM likely having changed the backend to make "--ask" behave as would be expected but broke [random GUI frontend] on that track, file a bug against the applet to adapt the new API or NM to not willy-nilly break API.
