connection_name.config — ConnMan vpn connection provisioning file

Synopsis

/var/lib/connman-vpn/connection-name.config

Description

ConnMan's vpn connections are configured with so called "provisioning files" which reside under /var/lib/connman-vpn/. The files can be named anything, as long as they contain only printable ascii characers, for example letters, numbers and underscores. The file must end with .config. Each VPN connection requires a provisioning file, but multiple connections can be specified in the same file.

File Format

The configuration file format is key file format. It consists of sections (groups) of key-value pairs. Lines beginning with a '#' and blank lines are considered comments. Sections are started by a header line containing the section enclosed in '[' and ']', and ended implicitly by the start of the next section or the end of the file. Each key-value pair must be contained in a section.

Description of sections and available keys follows:

[global]

This section is optional, and can be used to describe the actual file. The two allowed fields for this section are:

Name=name

Name of the network.

Description=description

Description of the network.

[provider_*]

Each provisioned connection must start with a [provider_*] tag, with * replaced by an unique name within the file. The following fields are mandatory:

Type=OpenConnect | OpenVPN | VPNC | L2TP | PPTP

Specifies the VPN type.

Host=IP

VPN server IP address.

Domain=domain

Domain name for the VPN service.

The following field is optional:
Networks=network/netmask/gateway[,...]

Networks behind the VPN. If all traffic should go through the VPN, this field can be left out. The gateway can be left out. For IPv6 addresses, only the prefix length is accepted as the netmask.

OpenConnect

The following keys can be used for openconnect(8) networks:

OpenConnect.ServerCert=cert

OpenConnect.MTU=mtu

OpenConnect.Cookie=cookie

The resulting cookie of the authentication process. As the cookie lifetime can be very limited, it does not usually make sense to add it into the configuration file.

OpenConnect.VPNHost=host

The final VPN server to use after completing the web authentication. Only usable for extremely simple VPN configurations and should normally be set only via the VPN Agent API.

If OpenConnect.Cookie, OpenConnect.VPNHost or OpenConnect.ServerCert are missing, the VPN Agent will be contacted to supply the information.
