Setup Instructions

This software only works with the PPTP protocol.

VPN Lifeguard will monitor the status of your VPN connection and will automatically try to reconnect you to the VPN if you're disconnected.

This program will also allow you to select up to 6 programs that will automatically be shutdown when disconnected and reopened when reconnected.

1. Download the VPN Lifeguard zip file.

2. Open the file VPNLifeguard.zip and extract the VPNLifeguard folder and it's content to the location you wish to install it.

3. Open the folder you just extracted and right click on the VPNLifeguard icon and hit Properties.

Make sure you are connected to the VPN before the next step!

6. Open VPNLifeguard and click on Config..


7. Select the Number of softwares you'd like to be managed by VPN Lifeguard. (in this case I chose two, for utorrent and qbittorrent).

8. Hit Browse... and locate the .exe file of the first program you choose and repeat for the next one.

Make sure you are still connected to the VPN before the next step!

9. Click on List IP and both Local IP of VPN and IP of the box should be filled correctly depending on your network.
If you're having problems connecting, try to check In case of trouble and click on List IP again.

All other settings are optional.

10. Click on Close.
