At the moment, there are several (automated?) blogs which reports that openvpn.jowisoftware.de distributes a virus. This is NOT true. Most of the sites do not even provide contact information, so it's very hard to examine this blame. However, it's always a good idea to scan downloaded binaries with an anti virus tool. If you find any evidences for a virus inside openvpn manager, please contact me!
This is the website of the OpenVPN Manager project.
OpenVPN Manager is a graphical user interface (GUI) for the OpenVPN Management Interface to control OpenVPN. It's goal is to be powerful but simple.

The command line

-disconnect "name"disconnects from the vpn name.
