I can't add a VPN in Fedora 36

Hello,
does anyone know what I might be doing wrong? I’m running the latest version of Fedora Workstation.

I’m trying to add a VPN connection (Cisco Compatible VPN (vpnc)), but the “Add” button stays greyed out. I’ve even tried importing a .pcf file with no luck.

had you installed the Packages “NetworkManager-vpnc” and “NetworkManager-vpnc-gnome”?

sudo dnf info NetworkManager-vpnc-gnome NetworkManager-vpnc

Yes, both packages are installed.

Thank you!

Edit: Nevermind, I’ve tried the workaround and I’m able to click the Save button, but the VPN doesn’t show up in the VPN field. I guess I’ll have to wait for a fix.
