Checking the VPN Connection
As soon as a VPN connection is established, a lock icon with connected plugs is shown in the panel:
However, this only serves as an indicator. To be sure that the VPN connection really exists:
- Open a Local Terminal.
- Run the comand ifconfig.
- Check whether the output contains a tun device with an IP address from the private network.
- Additionally, check whether you can ping the VPN server's private IP address.
