VPN randomly loses login credentials

REPRODUCIBILITY (% or how often): seemingly random
BUILD ID: 3.3.0.16
HARDWARE (Jolla1, Tablet, XA2,…): Xperia X
UI LANGUAGE: German
REGRESSION: (compared to previous public release: Yes, No, ?): No

DESCRIPTION:

When using a VPN with vpnc, the system seems to lose my login data (password, group password, user name). After I’ve re-entered them it works again for some time. It seems the issue appears randomly.

PRECONDITIONS:

VPN via Wifi using vpnc

STEPS TO REPRODUCE:

  1. enable Wifi
  2. setup VPN using vpnc
  3. enter login credentials, click “save”, click “connect”
  4. wait…

EXPECTED RESULT:

After entering my credentials once, the system should remember them even if the connection may stop working and it has to reconnect (?).

ACTUAL RESULT:

The connection breaks and the system asks for my login data.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

(Please ALWAYS attach relevant data such as logs, screenshots, etc…)

I have no idea how to debug this issue. Where can I find relevant logs? I vaguely remember this or a similar issue being discussed on TJC but I couldn’t find the thread.

Has been there for a while, is still there and will most probably be there …

I do not remember exactly but iirc it was there long ago, then fixed and now back (since 3.x?).
One of the little discomforts we are used to, so never bothered to bug report it.
Thanks

Thanks for the post. We have created a bug report about this.
