I'm the main user of my machine, but I want it to be usable by other members of my family too, without sharing passwords. The problem is there seems to be no (simple) way for someone to connect to the network. I configured a VPN connection and made it both connect automatically and available to all users. However, neither settings seems to have any effect:
- When I login as my own user X, the connection is not up, but at least I can start it manually.
- When logged in as another user and trying to start the connection, system asks for X password. However, even then it fails to start the connection (I don't know where to look for exact error, desktop popup is just generic "failed" message).
- I tried to start connection as X, then relogin as a different user. This other user can then stop the connection without any password, but when trying to start again has the same problem as described in the previous paragraph.
Is this a known problem? Are there any workarounds or just misconfigurations on my part?
