Is there a way to program a killswitch and autoconnect script?

Post by starkness42 » Mon Oct 21, 2019 4:58 pm

Putting it simply, is there a way to program some kind of killswitch and a script that automatically detects and connects to the fastest server for a given VPN service like with proprietary VPN clients?

I only used OpenVPN briefly and, in my experience, I often lose connection with my VPN (and I'm still browsing the web unencrypted!) without warning and often have to manually connect via a new config file.

Thanks.

I assume you have searched the internet by now and have found a few scripts that suit your needs. If you are indirectly asking for someone to combine a killswitch script and a connection script together (in GNU/Linux--you did not specify for what OS) then yes it can be done by a Bash writer one of these decades.
