Hello, this is a new add-on that makes it easy to use VPN connections from within OpenELEC

Features are :
- Manage Private Internet Access, IPVanish, VyprVPN, Invisible Browsing VPN, NordVPN, tigerVPN, Hide My Ass!, PureVPN, LiquidVPN, AirVPN, CyberGhost, Perfect Privacy, TorGuard, HideIPVPN, LimeVPN, VPN Unlimited, BTGuard VPN, ExpressVPN, SaferVPN, Celo VPN.ht, TotalVPN, WiTopia, proXPN, Windscribe, VPN.ac, VPNSecure, IVPN (untested), SecureVPN.to (untested), RA4W (untested) and VPNArea (untested)
- Import .ovpn files for other VPN providers not supported
- Connect to VPN when Kodi starts and reconnect when necessary
- Connect to VPN before Kodi starts (LibreELEC only)
- Connect to different VPN profiles/locations (or disconnect entirely) depending on add-on in use
- Supports both UDP and TCP connections where available, using the default or user defined port
- Easy display and switching of profiles from a single button/remote key
- Display screen overlay of current system information from a single button/remote key
- Supported on OpenELEC 5 onwards, OSMC, other Linux based Kodi installs and Windows (see words in trouble shooting post below)
- Android not currently supported. It doesn't work and will just give you an error message.
- (and randomly a local network speed test utility and reboot timer...)

Download the latest version, currently 2.6.2. Setup and usage instructions can be found on the add-on wiki

These three pages cover the basics
Download and installation
VPN configuration and connection
Filter VPN connection depending on add-on being used

If something isn't work, then try and help yourself first by reviewing the trouble shooting page, get a log and post up your issue.

Looks really nice, where do I put the .ovpn files?

Probably a very newbie question :unsure:

Not a silly question, too me ages to understand how this all worked. The ovpn files install and update automatically when you set up the VPN provider and credentials.

Also, updated download link above to 0.0.7 which fixes a couple bugs and makes the notifications quiet (as it was annoying me with all it's bonging). You should uninstall 0.0.6 before rebooting and installing 0.0.7 (I had inconsistent results when I tried to update over an existing install)

Great job, thanks. I've just been trying VyprVPN free trial and working great. I've got a premium vpn with ibVPN so if you could add this provider to your VPN Manager I'll be very grateful :-)

Update :

I've add the ovpn file from ibVPN and working brilliant.

Fantastic addon, working great so far.
Thank you again.
Best Piotr.

Thanks for trying it out buddy. I appreciate you letting me know VyprVPN works too.

I got a free trial account for ibVPN this evening and have also gotten it to work too! I've added it in as a selectable option on the settlngs page with all of the profiles and am just making a couple bug fixes. Will have a new version ready in a couple days.

Didn't take as long as I thought it would...here you go : dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/8983453/service.vpn.manager-0.0.8.zip

This has support for ibVPN, a slight name change and a few bug fixes.

You can install it over 0.0.7, but if you've messed with the VPN files, might be a good idea to uninstall the previous version, reboot and then install this. Your settings should be retained even through an uninstall. Let me know if you have any problems

Another update, dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/8983453/service.vpn.manager-0.0.9.zip

This adds NordVPN as they gave me a trail account to let me add in support for their service. It installs fine over any existing 0.0.8 (or older?) version

The number of different VPN profiles they have means that the size of the zip and the install time has shot up. Install especially takes ~30 seconds.

It's even cheaper right this instant, as they're having their anniversary sale today (27th). Well, yesterday for me - not sure what timezone it's in, so not sure when it will finish ...

Hi zomboided,
What a great addon, just what I was looking for.
I have a tiger vpn lifetime account, how do I get that one running or do you have to make that possible in the addon?
