NetworkManager dispatcher scripts

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – In another thread I was prompted to use NM dispatcher scripts. I am unable to get them to execute. I am seeing a message in /var/log/syslog "could not get dispatcher proxy" but have not found anything helpful on the web. My non scientific wild guess is the dispatcher is not running, which would explain why the scripts don't run. I've read the NM man page and all scripts are owned by root:root and are executable. I've tried permissions of 755, 711, 700. None of the scripts are SUID. I'm missing something but what? Thanks :) Slackware 14.0, NetworkManager- (HowTos)
