Keep OpenVPN alive

Postby Tripple_Delta » Mon Oct 16, 2017 4:16 am


I'm running Linux Mint 18.2 Cinnamon on my laptop.
When I close my laptop and open it again the VPN is disconnected. Is there a way to avoid this?

Yes. Don't close the laptop. It's highly likely that the connection is being reset by your VPN provider because no keep-alive signal is being detected.
There is no spoon.
