    Default Auto Reconnect?

    If tunnel goes down does the app try to reconnect it? If so how many times? Need to make sure this is happening

    Our assumption was that the services would put the reconnect settings in the ovpn file.
    However, we're seeing vendors where this isn't the case, so we'll likely need to figure out some external process to restart it or just add some default reconnect settings to the imported ovpn file.

    Auto reconnect would be great. I have had several VPN trials and none reconnect automatically. The only way seems to be to disable and then re-enable the Tunnel. I have also tried various edits of the OVPN file without success. At the moment, at least for me, the VPN Tunnel app is not really usable.

    I agree, without it reconnecting automatically, its not really usable for me either. It would be excellent otherwise.

    Thanks

    All of the services I have access to eventually disconnect. If you can sort this out, it would be great!

    What service are you using? It depends on the service.
    For nord you can just change ping-restart 0 to ping-restart 120
    in the config file.

    For other services you can likely add it if its missing
    wbennett77 and Bollar like this.

    I was using the Linux config files for NordVPN. Is this correct?

    Yes, you can add
    ping 10
    ping-restart 120

    nord will still boot you eventually with an authorization failed unfortunately
    I'm trying out some other services

    Thanks.

    I am looking at their server load for my area and choosing the one with the lowest load.

    I will report back.

    Yes, Nord clearly does not want people doing always connected VPNs... I find their practice of giving auth failures after long connection times "shady" and will no longer use them.
