Why can't a VPN ovpn file set everything that needs to be set?

Why can't a VPN ovpn file set everything that needs to be set?

          http://i60.tinypic.com/ubg9v.jpg

What do I need to do to get a simple ovpn file to set up a 
vpn in NetworkManager in a single file load, including the connection
type, ca file, username and password *without* having to manually
edit the connection type, ca file location, username, & password?

Why can't the file load just set everything that needs to be set?

Here's what I do now (but it takes multiple steps which I don't
understand why). [All I want is for the loaded file to set up itself.]

0. At mofolinux, I press on the openvpn list to choose an ovpn file:
   http://mofolinux.com/vpngate.html

1. I save any of those files to /tmp with the default file name:
   /tmp/vpngate_vpn326801121.opengw.net_udp_1195.ovpn

2. I hit the setup wrench in the Kubuntu KDE NetworkManager and then
   I hit "File > Import VPN" and point to the file above.
   http://i60.tinypic.com/ubg9v.jpg

3. This is *supposed* to set up the VPN connection; but it does not.
   I still have to perform the following (which shouldn't be necessary).
    Connection Type
    CA File
    Username
    Password

Can't an openvpn ovpn file simply set up the connection type, ca file,
username & password?    http://i60.tinypic.com/ubg9v.jpg

I tried appending the file but the angle brackets won't let it post, 
so, I changed all the open angle brackets (<) to the keystring "123"
and I changed all the close angle brackets (>) to the keystring "456".

Q: Why doesn't this file set the connection type, CA file, login, 
and password?

# 
# !!! AUTO-GENERATED BY SOFTETHER VPN SERVER MANAGEMENT TOOL !!!

# !!! YOU HAVE TO REVIEW IT BEFORE USE AND MODIFY IT AS NECESSARY !!!
# 
# This configuration file is auto-generated. You might use this config 
file
# in order to connect to the PacketiX VPN / SoftEther VPN Server.
# However, before you try it, you should review the descriptions of the 
file
# to determine the necessity to modify to suitable for your real 
environment.
# If necessary, you have to modify a little adequately on the file.
# For example, the IP address or the hostname as a destination VPN Server
# should be confirmed.
# 
# Note that to use OpenVPN 2.0, you have to put the certification file of
# the destination VPN Server on the OpenVPN Client computer when you use 
this
# config file. Please refer the below descriptions carefully.


###############################################################################
# Specify the type of the layer of the VPN connection.
# 
# To connect to the VPN Server as a "Remote-Access VPN Client PC",
#  specify 'dev tun'. (Layer-3 IP Routing Mode)
#
# To connect to the VPN Server as a bridging equipment of "Site-to-Site 
VPN",
#  specify 'dev tap'. (Layer-2 Ethernet Bridgine Mode)

dev tun


###############################################################################
# Specify the underlying protocol beyond the Internet.
# Note that this setting must be correspond with the listening setting on

# The destination hostname / IP address, and port number of
# the target VPN Server.

# You have to specify as 'remote 123HOSTNAME456 123PORT456'. You can also
# specify the IP address instead of the hostname.
# 
# Note that the auto-generated below hostname are a "auto-detected
# IP address" of the VPN Server. You have to confirm the correctness
# beforehand.
# 
# When you want to connect to the VPN Server by using TCP protocol,
# the port number of the destination TCP port should be same as one of
# the available TCP listeners on the VPN Server.
# 
# When you use UDP protocol, the port number must same as the 
configuration
# setting of "OpenVPN Server Compatible Function" on the VPN Server.

remote vpn326801121.opengw.net 1195


###############################################################################
# The HTTP/HTTPS proxy setting.

Can't unlock a set of files
I have a folder in which some files are locked and some are not. I can unlock individuals files one at a time, but if I select all and do a Get Info, the Locked field shows a hyphen (as it should, as there is a mix), but it's also dimmed and cannot be changed. Get Info indicates the files all have the same, and proper, permission settings. The enclosing folder and folders all the way up to the root are not locked. I got around doing these as a group by using File Buddy, but is there a Finder limitation regarding the lock setting? ...
