is there a possibility to connect to a VPN manually before login on CentOS desktop (Gnome). I know of a similar functionality in Windows.
Is there a tutorial or something?
Thank you Tim
Vpnc will help u to login VPN from Linux machine.
This is reasonably vpn specific as to the type, and configuration allowed. Can you be more specific?
I imagine something like Cisco AnyConnect on Windows, where you can connect before login to the machine. So afterwards user specific network shares are available and can be connect via scripts.
I have an openvpn server running.

,vpnc, command is used to connect VPN server. We can configure VPN server IP, username, password there.
So most easiest way in my eyes would be a network-manager applet at gdm login.
But as of CentOS 7 there is no nm-applet.desktop anymore.
There is also an unsolved bug report at fedora.
Anyone an idea to get nm-applet to gdm login screen?

Probably the easiest thing to do with OpenVPN would be to use RSA
authentication and configure openvpn to run on boot at the client.
I do this on several machines via scripts and rc.local for openvpn .. you can do it many different ways.

First I would confirm the implementation in use … IPsec-VPN (e.g. OpenSWAN) vs. SSL-VPN (e.g. OpenVPN).
Two totally different technologies.
