In this article:
- Twingate Component: Client
- Platform: Linux
The Twingate Linux Client requires resolved-systemd or Network Manager. If Network Manager is installed/running, it needs to be configured to manage the interfaces . Without such configuration, the Twingate Linux Client will not be able to manage the interfaces as needed.
- Twingate Linux Client does not start.
- The command
$ /usr/bin/twingate-notifier consoleimmediately returns the below error:
22:12:40 [ERROR] twingate_notifier::notifier::Notifier::start message process error: auth.sock socket is not found
- Reviewing the Twingate Client Logs the below error is seen:
twingated: [ERROR] nm_wait_for_device: it was not possible to activate sdwan0 device. Please make sure NetworkManager is running and it's the current system network renderer
twingated: [FATAL] Failed to initialize Network Controller
systemd: twingate.service: Main process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE
systemd: twingate.service: Failed with result 'exit-code'.
- Check to see if Network Manager is installed. Example command and results via Ubuntu utilizing aptitude package manager below:
~$ sudo apt list --installed | grep network-manager
network-manager-pptp/jammy,now 1.2.10-1 amd64 [installed,automatic]
network-manager/jammy,now 1.36.4-2ubuntu1 amd64 [installed]
- Check to see if Network Manager service is running. Example command via below:
~$ sudo systemctl status NetworkManager
● NetworkManager.service - Network Manager
Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/NetworkManager.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
Active: active (running) since Fri 2022-06-10 22:11:13 UTC; 8min ago
- Check to see if Network Manager is configured to manage the interfaces. Below we can see
~$ sudo nmcli d
DEVICE TYPE STATE CONNECTION
enp0s3 ethernet unmanaged --
lo loopback unmanaged --
sdwan0 tun unmanaged --
Depending on your environment and configuration needs, any of the below options will resolve this issue.
- Configure the
sdwan0interface to be managed by Network Manager.
- If systemd-resolved is installed, enabled, and running, disable Network Manager. Ensure systemd-resolved is enabled/running if you proceed this route. Example command below.
sudo systemctl disable NetworkManager
- Uninstall Network Manager. Example command via Ubuntu utilizing aptitude package manager below:
sudo apt remove network-manager -yq
