saved password associate with .ovpn file name

Reported by: higgins0 Owned by: Selva Nair
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: Windows GUI Version: OpenVPN git master branch (Community Ed)
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords: password save


when putting same name name .opvn file into different folders (as resulting from import), the same saved password is associated with all .ovpn having the same name. Association should be based on path, not only .ovpn file name
...config/nameone/samename.ovpn with receive the same remembered password as ...config/nametwo/samename.ovpn...

Multiple .ovpn's with same name are not (yet) supported even if they are in different folders. Only one of them will be displayed in the menu --- except for a period when new configs are added while connections are active, as purging the menu is delayed in that case.

You will see a warning saying "duplicate" configs have been ignored when you start/restart the GUI.

This behaviour has its origins from the time when all configs used to be in the same folder. Changing it involves some work and has not been a priority. For now, you'll have to rename the config file.
