Im using openvpn enabled as a service. It works well, but once I get assigned a new IP adress or lose the connection, I cant access to the internet any more. Then I have to systemctl restart openvpn@ipredator.conf manually. How can I fix that so I dont have to login as root each time and restart the service manually?
