I've installed Fedora 16 on my desktop machine and set up a VPN connection in the NetworkManager. When I'm sitting at my desktop I can easily start the VPN connection (I've saved the password). Also from the command line using the nmcli command works straight forward.
But when I'm remotely logged-in via ssh (e.g. from my laptop at home) I can't start the VPN connection on my desktop. I get:
$> nmcli con up id "My VPN Connection"
Error: Connection activation failed: Not authorized to control networking.
Why does it only work when I'm sitting at my desktop and not remotely? Is there something I need to set? Thanks for your help.
