Hi Ryan,

I start it as a service. Then I create a folder on the desktop called VPN. In the folder I have two batch files. startvpn.bat and stopvpn.bat

The content of the batch files:


 net service start "OpenVPN"


 net service stop "OpenVPN"

Just wondering how any who use Windows clients have end-users starting and stopping the OpenVPN services. I created a batch file to start OpenVPN, but even when minimized, it is in the way. Someone has to have a better way to do this. I'd like to create a little GUI box that could perform these services, but wanted to hear what some of you have done first.

Thanks, Ryan
