Why? Incorrect MTU settings caused me to have disconnects from my VPN
connections. After I measured and compensated for poor MTU, my
connections have become much more stable and disconnects come back
online shortly.

How? MTU is essentially packet size. You can measure in CLI by pinging a
server. There are a few tutorials to correct MTU in OpenVPN. Go to one
of them to check it out.

Create a different VPN ProxyVM for each location you want to use.
You lose leak protection if you use NetworkManager, you should use the
iptables way.

Once you get the first ProxyVM setup correctly, you can copy its files
to other ProxyVMs to save time. Just verify their permissions and change
the desired server in the .ovpn file. Check your MTU settings, too.

I like having the iptables anti-leak rules. However, it's connecting 
automatically to my VPN providers destination that I downloaded their .ovpn for.

Is it possible to compile multiple locations and be able to select which one?

OR perhaps I'm going about this the wrong way? Should I instead use the GUI way 
via NetworkManager? Can I configure that for multiple destination choices then 
perhaps still add the iptables anti-leak rules?

What's the best way?

Thanks!



na, just make another NetVM  like you did for the one you got , or 2 3 
etc up to you ,  what i've been doing is after suspend  just start the 
new non active  VPN NetVM and use it  , after changing the appVMs using 
it ,  bit tedious  but works
