I use standard fedora 19 with gnome.

I want to be able to start vpn without a password. It works ok with pptp vpn. But I also need "Cisco compatible VPN" for my work. I specified password and group password in NetworkManager and choose "saved" option for both. Despite this when I start vpn it asks me password and group password (both in the same dialog) and then asks for keyring password and keyring password confirmation (in another dialog). Then vpn connection establishes but next time I connect I am again asked for all these passwords.

I've managed to start vpn via vpnc utility but this is inconvenient for me. NetworkManager is rather basic component of system so I feel like it is not a bug but some obscure feature instead. My questions:

  1. how do I make NetworkManager to save "Cisco compatible VPN" passwords?

  2. is this a bug? Is it reported? Where can I report (or track progress on) it?
