    Ria,
    It has been a little nuts here at work.  Hate it when work gets in the way of ham radio!!  Anyway, I ran the updated script and it executed perfectly.  I will test it later tonight to ensure it works properly but I suspect it will.  Still no smoking gun on the intermittent connection issues...

    Hi Ria, thanks for the script.
    It worked well once I figured out that eth0 was hardcoded into the vpninstall.sh script, as I am running Raspbian Stretch the interfaces are all renamed so had to tweak it to find the interface. Unfortunately I just hardcoded it, not sure how to fix it properly to make it dynamic.

    maybe update vpnsinstall.sh to use something like 

    for f in e*; do [[ -e $f ]] || continue; echo $f ; done | head -1  
    to get the wired interface and then use that to update commands.in
    bridgecreate VPN /DEVICE:enxMAC:ADDRESS /TAP:no 
    and when echoing
    echo "Hardware address/MAC address:" 'cat /sys/class/net/enxMAC:ADDRESS /address' echo "IP address:"                   'ip addr show enxMAC:ADDRESS  | grep "inet " | cut -d '/' -f1 | cut -d ' ' -f6'

    Yep I guess I could do that, but this was just a simple script I threw together because others were asking me to help them get theirs going. I've stopped maintaining it since we have Smartlink and v2.0.

    I've really not maintained it all that much, but figured it was due for a minor update. I've updated the version of SoftEther used as well as not hardcoding eth0. I've also made the source code available on github in case you guys want to do your own things with it:

    I used Makeself for the packaging.

    Thank you so much Ria... Some of us are still using PowerSDR on older Flex gear and this is just what the doctor ordered!
