Yes. One big problem with this setup is there is no more need to type a pass-phrase to open the PKCS file anymore, and now, anyone which has access to this laptop could connect our VPN - no passwords are required !

I am sorry for this. My mistake. I did what you told me and I could see in the "foreign-option" line what I did wrong. I used the char ":" as separator for the 2 dns server on SW/Zerina setup and it is not allowed ! (I didn't figure out yet what is the right separator but for sure it is not ":") - I removed the second dns server from SW/Zerina config page and NM-openvpn wrote a new /etc/resolv.conf as expected.

But, I had another NM issue related with DNS, not VPN. I hope you could help me to debug and to fix this too:
Only when I connect to the internet using a GSM connection (USB modem Huawei E226) to out local GSM Internet provider (Claro), NM auto-detects and auto-configure the GSM conection and it conects with no problem, BUT the DNS servers are set wrong. This provider sends 2 WINS servers and 3 DNS servers; The problem is NM use the WINS ip server as DNS server ! After the connection is estableshed I have to fix /etc/resolv.conf by hand.
I known it is a WINS server because on Windows I can see that IP as WINS server.
May be do you have a trick to get the environment for that GSM connection and we can see exactly what is happening, do you ?
