I would never suggest using NM if you need network access without being logged 
in. Better set up the old network service, it is still there, and works as 
reliably as always. AFAIK, NM still doesn't provide network access until a 
user logs in (please correct me if it does).

That said, I have never had any problems setting up OpenVPN using the network 
service. NM is mainly targeted for laptops, and those typically need network 
access only when a user is present, and OpenVPN also rarely comes into play 
for laptops.

Just my 2 cents. ;-)

Best, :-)
