Feature #309586, revision 1
Title: Add hybrid-auth to KNetworkManager/vpnc

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: Sascha Eichenauer (supertimorplusfort)

Description:
A lot of CISCO VPN's today use hybrid-authentication. Unlike
gnome-NetworkManager, KNetworkManager does not support hybrid-auth. Sure, it's
not a big deal to connect via cli (when you have an ssl-enabled vpnc installed)
but hybrid-auth integration into KNetworkmanager would make openSUSE and KDE
much more attractive to university students and staff, for example.

There's a bug report in KDE's bug tracker
(https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=219118) which seems to be worked on. The
gnomes were faster, they already have a patch
(https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=495893) . I'd really appreciate
seeing hybrid-auth capability in KNetworkManager. Maybe someone with
programming skills and the desire for hybrid-auth can do something. Thanks for
listening!
