This page lists various projects that are related to OpenVPN in one way or another. Due to large number of inactive/obsolete projects they are listed separately from currently active projects. A project is considered inactive if there has been no development activity/releases in ~12 months. Please add new projects and move old ones to "Inactive" category as necessary or this list soon becomes obsolete.

Windows client GUI

Probably the most used add-on to OpenVPN is the Windows client GUI. The old client GUI is effectively unmaintained and all new OpenVPN releases (2.3+) include the new GUI that is more advanced and uses the OpenVPN management interface for controlling the OpenVPN daemon and should thus be more reliable.

OpenVPN Technologies Inc also provide a client which is available here.

Windows System Service

There is a supplementary Windows System/NT Service available for OpenVPN that has proper support for Sleep, Standby and Resume events and comes with a small control panel/GUI. Written in VB.NET and released under a MIT license, you can reuse it's core DLL from within your own .NET projects. Find it on Codeplex. Please use the Codeplex issue tracker to report any bugs.
