http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hey there, I am a big fan of this forum (about 100 questions were answered because I found the solution in here), and now it's time to register. I am using Fedora 19 with GNOME3. I want to connect to a VPN server when I boot the pc. I don't care whether this is before or after login, but it would be nice before I open the browser. I figured out how to start the connection in the terminal (nmi con list for getting the UUID, nmcli con up <UUID> for connecting) and this works fine. I created a file called runvpn.sh with the one line nmcli con up 00816530-4668-11e3-8f96-0800200c9a66, saved (HowTos)
