I am trying to connect to my OpenVPN server via the network manager plugin (network-manager-openvpn), after importing the ovpn config file. However, I receive a time-out error:

$ grep VPN /var/log/syslog
Oct  1 11:56:05 packer NetworkManager[997]: <info> Starting VPN service 'openvpn'...
Oct  1 11:56:05 packer NetworkManager[997]: <info> VPN service 'openvpn' started (org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.openvpn), PID 4700
Oct  1 11:56:05 packer NetworkManager[997]: <info> VPN service 'openvpn' appeared; activating connections

Oct  1 11:56:46 packer NetworkManager[997]: <warn> VPN connection 'vpnt' (IP Config Get) timeout exceeded.
Oct  1 11:56:51 packer NetworkManager[997]: <info> VPN service 'openvpn' disappeared

connecting via the console

sudo openvpn --config .openvpn/vpnt.ovpn

works perfectly well.

I have no idea what I am missing -- and grateful for any ideas. :)
