I've pressed the button "Never show again" on the notification related to the successful connection to a VPN network.

This may be in the gconf settings for nm-applet. Try installing gconf-editor:

sudo apt-get install gconf-editor

Then run it:


And go to /apps/nm-applet and make sure 'disable-connected-notifications' and 'disable-disconnected-notifications' are disabled (unchecked).
