Description of problem:
We have several reports of VPN authentication not working with current kde-plasma-networkmanagement builds when KWallet is enabled.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(*) = confirmed report(s), (?) = probably affected too
Appears to be always reproducible according to user reports
Steps to Reproduce:
(requires a VPN with constant password to reproduce)
1. Make sure storing secrets in KWallet is enabled (the default)
2. Configure a VPN with stored password
This is NOT the same issue as bug #682972, which is about trouble with WEP and WPA authentication when KWallet is DISABLED.
> Actual results:
> Authentication successful.
> Expected results:
> Authentication fails.
This should of course read:
I've tested with upstream networkmanagement master and it appears to work.

kde-plasma-networkmanagement-0.9-0.40.20110323.fc15 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 15.
With those updates my problems were gone.
Thanks a lot for your effort on this issue.
I experienced this bug too on F14. The bug manifested also in the Network Control GUI which did not pick the VPN password from the KDE Wallet (the password field was blanked when the GUI was re-opened). With the above presented updated packages, this now works and I can now store the password in the KDE Wallet. Thanks.
Peter, use the mentioned updates and it should solve your problem, at least for me they did.
