LM16 Auto Connect VPN

Post by hkarn » Tue Jan 14, 2014 6:51 pm

So I just upgraded.
Previously there was a box in the VPN connection settings to auto-connect on login. It seems to be gone.

How do I make my OpenVPN connection start automatically when I log in in Linux Mint 16?

I don't need reconnect or any fancy stuff like this. Just not having to activate manually after every boot.

For me, it looks the same as 15.

I go to configure VPN which opens Network Connections, then open the Ethernet arrow to choose my Wired connection then hit edit.

Now you are editing wired connection - select General tab.

Select "Automatically connect to VPN when using this connection" and choose your VPN.

edit: forgot to mention I'm using Mate.
