VPN disconnect feature?

Does Tixati have a feature whereby it will automatically shut down if your VPN disconnects unexpectedly?

Same question here - I recently had to re-configure my paid vpn service to run openvpn instead of l2tp. My worthless isp is somehow preventing me from making a secure/anonymous connection, regardless of which server/country I attempt to connect through. I have looked through Tixati support/forum for some kind of "auto kill switch" in case my openvpn connection is broken but no luck. Any solution?

Yes, a VPN disconnect feature is still wanted.  Thanks.

This is already here in 2.25+

Go into Settings > Network > Connections and look toward the bottom for "Local Address".

There's a little button next to it, click it and find your VPN adapter name.

I use VPN Lifeguard and when my VPN disconnects VPN Lifeguard will automatically shut down Tixati and then restart it once a connection has been re-established.

Make sure you update to 2.25 or better!  You don't need anything extra, Tixati has this feature and it works great.

OpenVPN in Merlin FW for Asus has that feature. Set static ip, and choose to block that ip if VPN goes down.

PIA VPN has a kill switch feature which will help assure you don't reveal your actual IP if there is a hiccup with your provider.  I'm a newbie in terms of knowing how to configure security on VPN's and torrents, but double kill switches sounds good to me, one on Tixati and the other on my VPN

In my settings, I use the following:

Options, network, connections, local IPv4 address or interface:


there are 6 different items listed, I'm with ExpressVPN and there is a TAP selection listed called:

"ExpressVPN Tap Adapter"

So when choosing, ensure that you select the CORRECT entry, some companies utilize their own adapter so look for your adapter.

ExpressVPN is terrible for torrenting because they don't offer port forwarding.  Get off that shit.

No to mention that these days, many VPNs offer a "kill switch" that will automatically disconnect your entire internet if it's disconnected from the client.  Think of it as a backup and it works fine for my vpn client...
