auto-reconnect after scheduled task started

Post by alamoudi.moh » Sun May 31, 2020 12:18 pm


so I have a Win10 Pro for my Media Server and inside it i have built a Win10 Pro (VM), this VM is only for VPN connection (any download needed through VPN will go there, so basically torrent).

I have managed to setup scheduled task to start openvpn, it gave me headache at the beginning as the tray icon was not showing/ or showing but not green, so i did not noticed i was actaully connect to VPN, till i started reading more and more here to understand it.

so now, how can i auto-reconnect (in case the connection is lost) since i won't be sitting in front of the VM all the time, will it auto-reconnect automatically if connection is lost, or do i need to do some setup.

btw.. i am using qbittorrent, is there a way to make sure that the connection goes through the vpn only,

apologies, but i am not good at tech.

By default, openvpn will reconnect.
