OpenVPN as a service AND OpenVPN-GUI possible?

Post by Moebius » Wed Jan 20, 2021 11:59 am

Hello all, probably a trivial question but please forgive my inexperience.
I successfully installed OVPN 2.5.0 on a Windows 2012R2 server and had it run as a service, putting all relevant files in folder config-auto, since now there are two different folders for manually started and service-started instances.
Is it possible at all to have the OpenVPN-GUI connect to the instance running as a service? If not to start and stop OVPN, at least to have a fast path to the status and log file.
