An updated NetworkManager-openswan package that fixes various bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
NetworkManager-openswan contains software for integrating the Openswan VPN software with NetworkManager and the GNOME desktop.
- Prior to this update, it was possible to enter an incorrect IP address into the gateway field and it was sometimes interpreted as a gateway hostname. With this update, the code has been improved to validate IP addresses. As a result, valid IPv4 addresses, as well as hostnames, are more reliably distinguished.
- NetworkManager-openswan was not able to import configuration files that were previously exported using NetworkManager. This release adds support for this functionality and importing Openswan IPsec configuration files is now possible using NetworkManager.
All users of NetworkManager-openswan are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes these bugs.
