VPN Guard is a small status menu application to monitor your built in macOS VPN connections and keep them connected.
PLEASE note! The app handles only the VPN connections that you can create and configure from the macOS System Preferences/Network pane (Cisco IPSec and L2TP over IPSec)

Currently available features
• Monitoring VPN connections’ status and connection time,
• Automatically and continuously keeping VPN connections alive, connected.
• Getting macOS notifications about any VPN connection status changes
• Simple macOS status menu interface

Any feature requests, bug reports are highly welcome!

Known Issues, limitations
• Currently only the built in Cisco IPSec and L2TP over IPSec VPNs supported.
• Currently only the default service configuration supported for each VPN services, I’ll try to figure out how to ask for all the configuration information later.
