Circuit Breaker

Post by MOQ888 » Sat Mar 02, 2019 8:29 am

A while back PB (I think) mentioned setting up *nix with some kind of circuit breaker (?) to kill all traffic if the VPN dropped out. I'm very interested in implementing this. I've tried searching "VPN circuit breaker" but I suspect my terminology is wrong.

Is there a resource our some pointers I can look at so I can incorporate this function into my Kubuntu 18.x setup using NM? If this function can't work with NM that's fine, I'd be happier to have such a mechanism than the convenience of NM.

don't worry, I have since discovered this is called a Kill Switch and DF has already posted an example.
