Does this script work with networkmanager-openvpn?

@trinux - this is a -git package, it's never out-of-date. If you think something needs to be done, please leave a comment.

Hi meiji,

Glad you found vpnfailsafe useful.

The examples in /usr/share/doc/vpnfailsafe are meant as a starting point - something to copy to your preferred location, (possibly) customize and use.

/etc/openvpn, or /etc/openvpn/client sound like the best locations to me.

I wrote for those who would like to easily reset all changes made by vpnfailsafe, but I don't use it personally. I find `systemctl restart iptables.service' sufficient. Yes, it doesn't clear the /etc/hosts entries, but it's never been a problem for me.

It's a matter of personal preference. If you like using, by all means, copy it to /etc/openvpn, chmod +x and use it from there - that was how I imagined people would use it.

I started using this package recently and it works great. I was grateful to know that is included /usr/share/doc/vpnfailsafe.
Do you think it would be wise to have it in the same directory as /etc/openvpn/ ? How do you access it in your setups?
