In Viscosity you can select a VPN connection/profile to auto connect to when Viscocity starts. Thats great, however now I 6 different connections and eventhough I use one of them more often than the others its annoying to have to start Viscosity then disconnect my default connection to connect to one of the other.

Is it possible to create a Windows shortcut to a specific connection, so that I can have two shortscuts on my taskbar for each connection? I guess this would be done by parsing a parameter to the exe-file

If it cannot be done today, how do I create a feature-request for the developers?

Hi Jesper,

Sure it, simply make a shortcut to Viscosity with the extra commands
Code: Select all
connect "My Connection Name"
