Public bug reported:

I've created a VPN connection in the KDE network manager plasmoid that
uses "Connection Type" set to "X.509 With password". When it tries to
connect, it fails with "VPN connection 'Maxwell' (IP Config Get) timeout
exceeded." and "ERROR: could not read Private Key
username/password/ok/string from management interface" logged in
daemon.log.

I'm fairly sure that this is because the wrong command line parameter is
passed to OpenVPN. Using ps, I can see the parameters include "--
management 127.0.0.1 1194". Now 1194 is the port to connect to the
OpenVPN server on - I doubt that it's also used for the password
connection to the management interface.
