VPN Configuration Aggregator


I would like to propose a feature that would allow users with a folder or archive full of *.ovpn config files and a *.crt file (as many VPN services offer) to either multiselect the files or plug the entire archive into a form along with the VPN username / password in order to create multiple VPN configurations at once.

Ideally, there would be an option under "Import a saved VPN Configuration" which would say something like "Import Multiple VPN Configurations." This would then lead to the form described above.

No one has done this as far as I am aware, but it could save a lot of (very tedious) time spent creating configurations for those who use VPN connections in multiple locations. Although I am not a programmer, it seems like this would be a remarkably easy addition to make.   

Thank You!

Re: VPN Configuration Aggregator

i usually put the ovpn files in /etc/openvpn/ as .conf files and then run service openvpn start|restart to start all the VPN connections at once.
in parrot and debian you also have to modify /etc/default/openvpn and uncomment the AUTOSTART="all" directive
