Heads-up on a nice add-on for working with multiple VPN connections. I spent most of yesterday writing scripts so that I could control my VPN connections via the Kodi desktop (and Advanced Launcher). I ran into all kinds of problems, and only after several fruitless hours did I think to google for ‘kodi open vpn’. Maybe I can save someone else the time…
Works nicely! Standard openVPN installation is controlled by root, so if you don’t want to type a sudo password each time you connect you will need to modify you sudoers file with the entry…
ALL ALL =NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/openvpn
Notice that the location is sbin. the add-on defaults to /usr/bin/openvpn, so you’ll need to change it.
Also, the add-on requires access to the openVPN management interface. You can enable this by adding the line to your client.conf or client.ovpn files.
management localhost 1337
1337 is the default port used by the add-on.
I owe Brian Hornsby beer. Cheers
