Hi all,

The title says it all.

Recently It has been impossible to connect to my VPN Service.
I had initially thought it was a problem of the service,
however, having checked the possibility to connect, using the open source openVPN client for windows XP, and seeing it works without hesitation,
obviously it is more related to Ubuntu.

The error I get (from command line.... it also does not work by GUI clicking anymore....) is the following:

xxx@svUbuntu10:~$ nmcli con up id VPNService
Active connection state: unknown
Active connection path: /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/ActiveConnection/8
state: VPN connecting (need authentication) (2)
state: VPN connecting (3)
state: VPN connecting (getting IP configuration) (4)
Error: Connection activation failed: the connection attempt timed out.

Has anyone any idea why this might be the case?

I am currently on ubuntu 12.04, latest updates as of march 2013.

thanks in advance for any help.
