How can I use sudo command from terminal in the default Ubuntu 12.04 guest account, in order to connect to vpn client and service. (OpenVPN+TrustConnect+Comodo)

I know it has been disable by default(sudo), but I want to use guest account, apparmor, etc, and security feutures of guest account, and still be able to connect to vpn.

Vpn client and service wont star without sudo command.

Is configuring network-manager to connect to the VPN at boot an option? –  Jordan Uggla Aug 13 '12 at 22:09
@Jordan Uggla Wow, is the first time I hear about that, I will study that one and give it a try. Thanks –  Alex Aug 13 '12 at 22:50

You could use sudo and the usermod command from an account that does have sudo access to add the adm group (for 12.04) to the account. Don't forget to use the -a option to add the group rather than replacing the group list.
