This is a truely magnificent Widget: one clik on it and your VPN-Connection is on; another one and it is off.

Very handy for people like me who do that many times a day!

Please note: the widget assumes you to have enabled AutoConnect in the VPN Client preferences. In the next version I will include a script which performs the connection regardless of your settings!

After Vpn starts and connects, the server returns a banner. The connection won't work until the continue-button is clicked on the banner.
Could you include the click on the button, so I don't have to do it myself?
Then that widget would be extremely useful to me.
Something about the design:
You could keep the design as it is on the Stop side. The Start side would have the Text 'Start VPN' and no button.

Any way you could get it to work with the built in VPN client?
