If these are single-user systems, you can rebuild NM with PolicyKit

I do have kind of manager of NetworkManager who amongst of other
tries to connect modem automatically because my devices are
embedded cards
located somewhere in nowhere. These cards communicate to server
OpenVpn tunnel. This modem connection process worked quite well

tried using it with OpenVpn. It seems that I can't use
AddAndActivateConnection method anymore (python api) as I do get
now "Got
"PolicyKit authorization failed" error message at the point where I
try to
access PIN. This does not happen if OpenVpn is not activated. I
tried to
use following option in NetworkManager.conf file:


Any suggestions appreciated!
