VPNMON -UBUNTU /Linux connection monitor

A core mission of cryptostorm is ensuring consistent, reliable network security with minimal fuss & drama. From DNS-based services like our DeepDNS in-browser native .onion/.i2p site access, through grounbreaking research on IP6 leakblocking, & to firewall-based structures to enable "fail-closed" security, this is where we discuss & develop cryptostorm-style leakblock tech.

VPNMON -UBUNTU /Linux connection monitor

I love using Cryptocloud VPN on my Ubuntu box. However, quite regulary, the connection would momentary break, and NetworkManager would re-connect by itself.... *without the VPN*. Not good.

Lately I found VPNMon, an open source piece of software, that can take care of this. Not in the repo's, unfortunately, but available here:

I think it should be promoted to all Linux users of Cryptocloud, or - if resources are available - Cryptocloud could make their own version. (It's Free Software, stupid!)

Disclaimer: I have no connection to this software, and cannot vow for its correct function, although it seems to preform well.
