Hi. I installed a VPN service on my iMac using the built in IPSec IKEv2. I set it up to Connect on demand under System>Network Preferences. This means the VPN is always on.

However, when the iMac goes to sleep (and logs off), and when my wife logs in to her profile, a message prompt will pop up that says: "VPN Connection. Please enter your authentication information."

I try putting in my VPN's password but it doesn't work! The only way to make the prompt disappear is to go to my profile and disconnect the VPN.

I would rather not manually connect and disconnect the VPN. I would rather leave it always on. Do you have any idea on why I am getting this message and how I can make it go away.
