Hello, OscarTalks

I tested the DNS for leaks here>

Thank you for taking the time to make and share this important piece

Hello,

I can't run a script when the network is disconnected.
Of course i found option (placed in .ovpn script/file)

Code:

...
up "/root/VPN/connect.sh"
down "/root/VPN/disconnect.sh"
...


but if I disconnect the network cable from my computer I don't receive any alert
'down' work only if i kill openvpn or exit .
Any suggestion ?

Thx

Hello Festus,
Thanks very much for the report.

Hello Fabrice,
Sorry but I don't have a definite answer. I have been trying to study these functions as there are other things I would like to do including some more notifications. I guess that disconnecting the cable produces a different response within the program when compared to issuing a kill or exit command. You could try running openvpn from terminal and study the output to see if you can use any changes to run a script. That is my only suggestion at the moment.

VPNbook have added 2 new free servers
Canada (CA198) has been added
France (FR8) has been added
CA222 and FR1 remain active, taking the total number of free servers available to 8
Users requiring p2p should use PL or DE (or one of the freevpn.me servers)
See http://vpnbook.com

I have added configuration files for these 2 new servers to my experimental vpn-onoff packages and re-uploaded. Package number remains the same at 0.2

Hallo, Oscar.

Mate, this works absolutely perfect. I can't thank you enough.....and so simple to use.

I thought it was time I got summat 'sorted' ahead of the forthcoming UK internet censorship law, coming into effect on the the 15th July 2019. Not that I visit very many 'dodgy' sites, if at all - Laughing - but from what some of the tech blog site sites have been reporting, the implementation is going to be so draconian that it'll throw the UK internet completely for a 'curve ball'.....and nothing will be the same going forward.

Even many relatively innocuous sites will be caught in the net.....and I have absolutely no intentions of registering my real name and credit card details, simply to 'prove my age'. Why the hell should any of us have to, come to that?

This article from WIRED.co.uk makes for interesting reading, and is a worrying taste of things to come.....

(Note section 3 in particular. Imagine that getting hacked, and all the possible ensuing blackmail on social media.....not to mention law-enforcement agencies taking it into their heads to conduct huge 'trawling' operations, based on the details within.)

Ouch. Literally.

----------------------------

I tried your early efforts on this, I'll admit, more out of curiosity than owt else. From those early 'manual' efforts this has matured into a beautifully easy-to-use way for any Puppian to use a VPN, newbie and veteran alike. Full marks to you.....and thanks again.

(According to my-ip-address.co, I'm posting this from a small village somewhere in south-eastern France...!!)

Well done, mate. You're a real credit to our community.





Mike. Wink
