Friendlier Profile Name?

Post by shushry » Mon Mar 04, 2013 3:11 am

OpenVPN connect will name an imported profile, by it's "remote" hostname. Often this might not be terribly descriptive, particularly if you have multiple profiles.

Is there a way to specify, in the ovpn file itself (either by the name of the profile file itself, or some parameter in the file) that one could assign immediately via import the name of the profile, rather than having the user have to "rename" the profile after import?

Try adding this to profile:

Code: Select all

setenv FRIENDLY_NAME "My friendly name"
