    Default Multiple connections to same vpn

    I don't know that much about openvpn mostly because it has just worked. I had a connection to my old office for years and all went smooth.

    I see the "Tunnel VPN" dropping from time to time. Could be many things like poor isp, server dropping or overloaded etc.I have config files for two vpn servers. Should Untangle fail over on it's own? Seems I have to restart tunnelvpn sometimes.

    According to this. https://openvpn.net/community-resour...configuration/ You can put more than one server in the config file.
    Code:
    remote server1.mydomain
    remote server2.mydomain
    remote server3.mydomain
    Would that help it fail over better? The two config files use the same certs.

    This seems to have made a huge reliability improvement. Edited
    Code:
    /usr/share/untangle/settings/tunnel-vpn/tunnel-200/tunnel.conf
    and added other server as above. Going to post a feature request here.

    Assuming it is using the same cert, username and password. Just add the other servers to /usr/share/untangle/settings/tunnel-vpn/tunnel-200/tunnel.conf. Or whatever the file name is.

    Code:
    remote us-free-02.protonvpn.com 1194
    remote us-free-01.protonvpn.com 1194
    remote nl-free-01.protonvpn.com 1194
    remote jp-free-01.protonvpn.com 1194
    remote jp-free-02.protonvpn.com 1194
    remote jp-free-03.protonvpn.com 1194
    remote nl-free-02.protonvpn.com 1194
    Then restart vpn-tunnel. I don't know but I think the closest should go first. You could order them by ping times I guess. I have not done that yet.
