ovpn profil as desktop icon

Post by iam-user-343465 » Wed Nov 22, 2023 6:08 am

Hello,

a)
sorry - I can´t find how to add a desktop icon (specific ovpn profile) for

OPENVPN GUI

Usually connecting procedure is via rightclic right below at the clock I know.

b)
Is there a advantage about the Connect APP?

Thx/B

Hi,

The "Connect to profile" shortcut is a feature that is only present in the OpenVPN Connect app.
The Connect app is a commercial product, unlike the GUI client which is open source.

With Regards,

Here is a simple example, if you want to connect to more VPNs than one: "C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\bin\openvpn-gui.exe" --connect vpn1.ovpn --connect vpn2.ovpn
