View Full Version : [ubuntu] Not authorized to control networking in SSH console

November 24th, 2010, 10:09 PM

I want to control Network manager from the command-line. This worked well enough in Ubuntu 10.04 (with cnetworkmanager).

Since the upgrade to Ubuntu 10.10 however, a DBus exception is raised when I attempt to activate a connection from within a SSH terminal:

org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.PermissionDenied: Not authorized to control networking.
