I have configured an OpenVPN session attached to my Ethernet Wired Connection and as soon as I have ticked the option "Automatically connect to VPN when using this connection" on my Wired Connection 1, the Ethernet is not activated automatically anymore by the login script and I have to do it manually. It works fine manually but I'd like to have it done automatically after startup. Any suggestions?
