I remote control my Ubuntu box using NX. I am trying to create a new VPN connection. I click on

Configure VPN → Add → OpenVPN → Create

then I get a "Editing VPN connection 1" window but everything is grayed out, and I can't edit it. The only button I can click is Cancel.

The reason I bring up NX is because if I plug in a monitor keyboard and mouse, I can create, edit import VPN connections just fine. So I imported all the different VPN connections, everything was fine.

I then remoted back into the Ubuntu machine with NX, click on my VPN connection, and get

VPN Connection Failed - The VPN CONNECTION failed to start. Not authorized to control networking.

I then disconnected and reconnected NX, and now all the VPN connections I had imported are gone.

Any ideas?
