I have rewritten my VPN guide for Qubes 4.0, since my old post from 3.2, didn’t work out of the box and solutions on the web, didn’t sit well with me. I chose to investigate how I can make a guide like the last one, just for Qubes 4.0.
Here it is, although the changes are few:
Create your vpn appVM, based on your preferred fedora template:
Add the ‘network-manager’ as a service :
Tur on the AppVM, and when the network icon appears, add the vpn connection:
Select the OpenConnect type:
Insert FQDN in the gateway section and save.
Start the VPN connection:
Type yur password and the connection will be established and your icon look like this:
Qubes 3.2, installed new wifi router, created hidden wifi and connected to the network. Everything works, until I reboot and log in.
When logging in, my network is offline and I can’t select my hidden network:

When enabling SSID broadcast, everything works perfectly again, disabling SSID recreates the problem.
Here are the logs from when logging in with visible wifi (sys-net’s guest-sys-net-log):
With hidden wifi:
disabling, reenabling hidden wifi:
The not so great solution provided, was enable SSID broadcast. Problem fixed but solution not preferred 🙂
