reset ovpn client in pfsense after losing connection

Question

Hi everyone,

over the past few weeks I'm noticing that my pfsense 2.3.2 loses connection w/ Torguard and the connection does not automatically restart.  If I go in from the LAN side, I can restart the client service, and everything is back up immediately.  In one case, I was out of town so I didn't have the ability to restart the service.  After ~2 days, the connection resumed on its own.  

Is there a way I can set the connection (client service) to restart automatically?

 

BTW, I used this method to setup the router: https://torguard.net/knowledgebase.php?action=displayarticle&id=208

and I'm connecting to: west.usa.torguardvpnaccess.com:443

 

Thanks in advance

Hey there - there no way for you to restart a service if for any reason it looses connection - i would maybe try setup your client to connect directly to an IP address rather than the hostname - normally when a client tries to reconnect DNS can be an issue, can you post a screenshot of your openvpn client settings ?
