Keep Users Connected At All Times

Post by mschultz » Wed Aug 17, 2011 3:01 pm

I'm looking for a way to prevent users from disabling and / or disconnecting the VPN client. We would like to have it stay connected at all times for security purposes. Does the software have a way to accomplish this?

what if the user simply disables the network? janks out the network cable?

on windows, you can run openvpn as a service that is launched before the user is logged in; this service process cannot be controlled by a non-admin user, so the user would have no method , other than disabling the network, to disable the VPN

on linux, you can run openvpn at system startup as 'root' - as long as the user does not have root privileges you should be fine

for mac OS I'm sure something similar applies.
