OpenVPN Connect Profile

On OpenVPN Connect the profiles are installed to the client and it disables any changes to the profile to ensure the settings are pre-stored for easy usage. If you wish to make changes to this, you would need to turn off basic mode with:

/usr/local/openvpn_as/scripts/confdba -mk vpn.client.basic -v false
/etc/init.d/openvpnas restart

This would mean that you can edit the profiles when you add them to the OpenVPN Connect.

The following information is for per client configuration:


For Windows:

    Open cmd.exe with administrative privileges.
    Run the following 2 commands: (if you have 32 bits Windows, leave out the " (x86)" part):
    cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenVPN Technologies\OpenVPN Client\core"
    capicli -k basic_client -v false SetPreference
    Restart the Windows computer.

For Macintosh:

    Open 'terminal' program on your Mac.
    Run the following 2 commands:
    cd "/Library/Frameworks/OpenVPN.framework/Versions/Current/bin"
    capicli -k basic_client -v false SetPreference
    Restart the Macintosh computer.

Please note that "false" in the above commands disables the basic mode, so that the import and delete menu options and multiple profiles option is enabled. Setting it to true enables the basic mode and hides these features. As an alternative to restarting the whole computer system it is also possible to just close the OpenVPN Connect Client program and opening it again. But for most users the action to restart the computer may be simpler to do.
