  Some feedback on b19.

when a client attaches to the tunnel, the color of
B19 does not change.

I could change it so the icon shows green when the service is started, and red when it isn't. Would that be useful?

Yes, that would be useful. Idea: when you are indicating the service is running, make only one of the monitors green. That would make it easier to tell an outbound connection from a running service. When the service is stopped, make only one of the monitors red.

Another idea: on your menu that shows "start, stop, restart",
place a check mark by start or stop to show its status.
(Like the "Default printer" check mark.)  Hmmm,
maybe it would be a better idea to gray out the active state.
Although, graying it out, it might be misinterpreted as
disabled.   I will leave this up to your better wisdom.


Currently the color of the icon is only affected by starting the individual connections from the menu with "Connect".
