Default Managing VPN connections
Hopefully in the right forum, I'd like to share my tip with you.

As a daily OpenVPN user I wrote a small GUI tool for setting-up VPN connections on PCBSD systems. There are some other tools but i never managed to get them working like i wanted.

The tool i wrote is called LiliVPN. It can work with configuration files or manual setup. Now I've got 0.1 alpha online, give it a try!

I'd like to get some feedback about nasty bugs etc..

You need to have OpenVPN installed and you need to have access to a OpenVPN server..

I've moved LiliVPN website to lilivpn.com

Now you can download a BSD OpenVPN GUI tested on PC-BSD, also Windows and Linux builds..

This looks useful. Is there a benefit to using lilivpn over, say openvpn-admin or kovpn? Different features or perks?

Neat. This sounds like it would belong under guides.

I couldn't get KOVPN working (in 5 minutes) so i was using some shell scripts to start my VPN connection from China.. never found OpenVPN-admin so i tried to make a small GUI.

LiliVPN is a standalone program. It should be easy to configure with pre-configured config files from your OpenVPN provider or you can setup manual configurations for easy fine tuning.

Another one is that you can save multiple configurations, easy to switch if your connection died for example.

It is still an alpha version, I'd like to get some feedback. If tested it and used it for 2 months on PC-BSD 8 <3. Now I'm working on some connection statistics and some automatically connection switch options..

Is there a port? If you can get a port accepted into FreeBSD, I'd be happy to make a PBI module for lilivpn.

No there is no port yet, first I'm doing some heavy alpha testing.. waiting for some feedback from active VPN users etc..

When I'm happy with the results it should be worth to apply for a FreeBSD port.
