Request to auto-connect openfortivpn


For the openfortivpn VPN client:

I’d like to request autoconnection to these slots:

The openfortivpn VPN client notably needs to:

  • start pppd (including the privileged noauth option)
  • modify routing based on information sent by the VPN appliance and the end-user
  • modify DNS parameters based on information sent by the VPN appliance

network-bind already auto-connects. I’m guessing the request is for network-control and ppp?

+1 to connect both of these interfaces as it is core and expected functionality for this snap.

@reviewers - can others please vote?

+1 for both network-control and ppp, totally expected for a vpn snap to auto-connect to these.

+1 from me, too - expected functionality for a vpn app.

3 votes for, 0 against to auto-connect network-control and ppp. Granted. This is now live.
