Uh, I've been sure I set up this topic yesterday. Well, obviously, I didn't ...

I'm looking for a tool allowing me to do the following:
Connect to a VPN on a wifi-connection with IPSEc by authenticating with a X.509 certificate.
Network-Manager has vpnc which should be cisco-compliant but does not seem to support X.509-certificate based authentication.
I found out that gnoMint should do such things but I can't find it in the repos.
Any suggestions on what I might want to use?
I know that it should be possible to do this with openvpn but I would prefer a less complicated solution.

Thanks in advance,
renilgh

network-manager-vpnc is a plugin that I've frankly never used. Have you tried vpnc proper? It supports IPSEC, and in that past I've been able to use it without issues. It's in the BLAG repo.

Code:
root@grandpaboy=> apt-get update
root@grandpaboy=> apt-get install vpnc

mh, thanks for the suggestion. I already had vpnc installed in order to use the network-manager plugin but the command line tool did not give any additional features, namely no support for X.509 certificates, which is essential.

Is there a reason for gnoMint not being in the repos?

I've never heard of it and don't see any upstream packagers.
