I've a Intel NUC6i3SYH running Debian GNU/Linux Unstable. It's connected to the internet through Ethernet. I'm using NetworkManager, but it only connects to the internet when I'm logged in. How can I set up NetworkManager so that it connects to the internet even when I'm not logged in (so that I could remotely SSH into it)?

Don't set connection.permissions which restricts the profile to a user.

nmcli connection modify "$PROFILE" connection.permissions ""

Or use the GUI to configure the profile in a similar manner .
