Configure embeded VPN tool from openvpn file (file.opvn)

Hi,

I am a fedora14 beginner and I have a VPN from openvpn with a client.opvn file to configure OpenVPN, but I wanna configure the internal VPN tool in the top of the desktop, in the connections panel area "VPN Connections -> Configure VPN".

In the window "Network Connections" -> "VPN" -> "Add" I chosen : "OpenVPN"...
I clicked "Create", and the window "Editing VPN Connection 1" is showing.
What I have to do to configure it ?

This is my client.opvn (whitout private infos of course :P) :

In the window "Network Connections" -> "VPN" ->
Backtrack to this point and choose 'Import' instead of 'Add'.

Hello,

I imported the client.ovpn, but the information still the same (none)

Have I to create some files with the information from the client.ovpn to add everyone one by one to every "Authentication" box, or something ?

Thanks,

I imported your client.ovpn and all the settings are imported from the file.

Have you installed 'NetworkManager-openvpn' ?
