Method 1

For anyone looking into this in 2021, please find below a connect and a disconnect.

To connect

"C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\bin\openvpn-gui.exe" --command connect yourconfigfile.ovpn

To disconnect

"C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\bin\openvpn-gui.exe" --command disconnect yourconfigfile.ovpn

For windows users… Both of these can be placed in a .bat file and automated with task scheduler, works like a charm.

Method 2

Another CMD example:

"C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\bin\openvpn-gui.exe" --connect config.ovpn

Replace ‘config.ovpn’ by your configuration file. You also may have another path to openvpn-gui.exe.

It will work if you have no openVPN correctly installed so you can’t run openvpn-gui ... from cmd.
