I'm trying to play around with virtual machines. I've set up a network of VMs accessible via nat gateway (a VM too) and openvpn. Everything works fine in windows 7. But in Ubuntu 13.04 it only works when I use the terminal (with sudo of course) to connect to the server.

Here is the real problem: when I import the configuration file to the network manager it connects to the vpn gateway but no traffic. I found that the reason of that is a route that gnome network manager adds in the route table. It is:  my.wifi.router UGH   0      0      0 wlan0

Mainly NM is routing all traffic going to which is my virtual router (using host only mode) to the wifi interface, after I deleted this route all works fine. Now come the question, why is the network manager adding this route??
