[Feature Request] OpenVPN Fallback IP List



  • I have a couple VPN Acccounts, and it seems to me, that every VPN provider I have looked at, all have lists of servers available for connection.

    One of the VPN Servers that I use, goes down from time to time, every couple of weeks, and if I am not there to put another server into the config, there is a disruption of service.

    It would be mighty cool if I could add a list of servers for a specific OpenVPN config, that would be rotated through on connection, or ping failure.

    Even cooler if that ping failure could be custom, so that every X amount of minutes a host is pinged through the VPN connection and if the ping fails the server is rotated.

    Any thoughts?

    If they all use the same general settings you can put additional remote entries in the extra configuration settings at the bottom of the client configuration.

    remote host [port] [proto]
    Remote host name or IP address. On the client, multiple --remote options may be specified for redundancy, each referring to a different OpenVPN server.
