Description Lubomir Rintel 2015-10-01 11:36:43 EDT
NetworkManager VPN plugins drop off the bus after 20 seconds of inactivity. That's too short for users with disabilities or complex authentication mechanisms (2FA with a token).

I'm also adding a regression tag, since in RHEL 7.1 the counter was not effective for the first VPN connection attempt.

No strong opinion from my side.

No objections from me either; this should get handled better upstream in the future but this is an OK fix for now.
Comment 6 Vladimir Benes 2015-10-26 16:31:10 EDT
Dialog is now shown for two minutes. connecting works as expected even after longer period of time.
