log-append or something similar

Post by bon_go » Fri Feb 09, 2024 3:38 pm


I'm looking for a way to keep the connection log with the current Windows OpenVPN GUI client. The current situation is that every time you start establishing a VPN connection, the client's protocol is overwritten. The log-append option in the .ovpn configuration file does not change this.

The only solution I currently have is to start the client manually with the --log-append option from a command line or to start a script with an up or down in the configuration file, which somehow saves the log file but doesn't always work reliably.

It would be ideal if a new log file was created every time a connection is established. But it doesn't work that way.

Am I missing something or are there other ways to solve the problem?
