services in systemd are started by the unit files in the /etc/systemd/system directory. These are just text files, so you could probably just read the actual command to start the service and run it manually
Yes, but it doesnt seem to work...seems to be looking for something else...

You will probably need to use the master branch if you aren't already. You can also post on their issue tracker. They are fairly responsive and without "attitude
That's good.
This matter with init and systemd is non-trivial and is a big project a little larger than my problem at the moment.

One VPN I've looked at uses both a socket and a service file in systemd, so unfortunately it's not quite as simple as running the commands from the service file.

Cheers.

yes that's how it is.
It's a very useful widget for connecting.

I can get connected sometimes using manual configuration of OpenVPN
but it is unfortunate that the automated service doesnt work in Slackware.

I don't know if you're just looking for a VPN or you already had one in mind, but I use PIA (Private Internet Access). They have servers in 30+ countries and don't log anything, so they highly value privacy. You can even pay by gift card, so you don't have your billing info on there.

The service works perfectly with openvpn and doesn't require any additional software with Slackware (although, I use openresolv to switch DNS servers once I'm connected to a VPN).

It runs $7US/month if you pay monthly, but can go down to around $3/month if you do a one or two year plan.

(I'm not sponsored by them or anything... just a happy customer.)
