[request]OSMC interface VPN Indicator


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

Nov 01 20:03:40 osmc systemd[1]: Starting OpenVPN service…
Nov 01 20:03:40 osmc systemd[1]: Started OpenVPN service.


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


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


That isn’t reflected via your command however


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 


Solved install this Zomboided VPN Manager show my an pop-up when connection is established.
