[request]OSMC interface VPN Indicator


#1

Is there a possibility to create an interface indicator, indicating that a VPN connection has been established.

 systemctl status openvpn
  • openvpn.service - OpenVPN service
    Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/openvpn.service; enabled; vendor preset:
    Active: active (exited) since Thu 2018-11-01 20:03:40 CET; 1 day 15h ago
    Process: 314 ExecStart=/bin/true (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
    Main PID: 314 (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
    CGroup: /system.slice/openvpn.service

That command simply says the daemon is running. It doesn’t say whether a connection is established


#3

There is an VPN connection established,that’s for sure (PIA).


#4

That isn’t reflected via your command however


#5

Use this command to check VPN connection,and observe that Ip address has been changed/ hidden,assume that VPN connection is then established.

 wget -qO- https://ipecho.net/plain ; echo
ping ¨Ip adress¨indicate connection to the PIA server
