Thanks a lot for the script. My usecase is slightly different. At the office
I need vpn to connect to the internet. I also need vpn to access my work
email from home, but then I use split-tunnelling. Can you point me in the
right direction to use one vpn connection for a specific access point and a
different vpn connection for all other connections? I know some python but
not how to deal with dbus.
