-===== Using OpenVPN ​with a password ​file =====+===== Rebuilding ​OpenVPN ​to read your login from file =====
 Since I wanted my openvpn connection to start automatically when I connect my Thinkpad to the dock I thought it would be usefull to add the '​password safe' feature. ('​password safe' setting allows you to store your username and password in a file for scripting) This feature is not installed by default. You have to add it to the slackbuild and recompile the package. Since I wanted my openvpn connection to start automatically when I connect my Thinkpad to the dock I thought it would be usefull to add the '​password safe' feature.
