NetworkManager, VPN, GUI, disabled controls for routes editing

Hello.
There is no possibility to edit routes for VPN in NM gui, controls are disabled.
Look: http://storage1.static.itmages.ru/i/12/ … 7e90a3.png
I've tried with openvpn and pptp plugins. But the same controls for wi-fi connections works correct.
What could be the reason of it?

read https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ne … ermissions (and the rest of the page too)

Edit: Your url gives 404. Also, what kind of vpn is it you want to connect to? (you really shounld't use pptp for sseurity reasons)

Thank you for the answer. Adding polkit permissions didn't help. By the way, I have no password dialogs while editing network connections via nm-applet, all works fine except editing routes

You should get your workplace to switch to something less insecure

Thanks for the article,  but have u ever heard about corporate politics? I don't think our admins will change vpn access method just because of this article.
Anyway, it won't help for nm-applet smile
