Title pretty much sums it up. If use Network Manager to configure a VPN it won't connect. However if I use openvpn at the CLI and provide the same information it will connect. Not sure what is going on or even how to troubleshoot so any advice would be appreciated.

If wondering why I would like to do it through the Network Manager it is primarily because I would like to configure multiple VPN accounts. I don't see an easy way to do that from openvpn on the cli. I do have the vpn thingy installed for network manager.
