Configure IKEV2 (Strongswan) VPN client in CentOS/RHEL 8 (Gnome GUI)

by ,

We have by far the largest RPM repository with NGINX module packages and VMODs for Varnish. If you want to install NGINX, Varnish, and lots of useful performance/security software with smooth yum upgrades for production use, this is the repository for you.
Active subscription is required.

So you have set up an IKEV2 VPN server using Strongswan somewhere or simply using a service that provides this type of VPN connection.

Now you want to easily configure the client VPN connection in CentOS/RHEL 8?

For some mysterious reason, the package NetworkManager-strongswan-gnome is not available in base repositories.

We have rebuilt it so you can:

sudo dnf install NetworkManager-strongswan-gnome


That’s all there is to it. Now you can configure the connection using Gnome GUI.
