For years we used Sophos SSL VPN client which was much better thab this new Connect client:1/ The new stupid circle icon has no personnality versus all other circle icons (Cittix, Scanners, etc). The "traffic light" was so easier to describe to users on a phone conversation !2/ I previously had many different .ovpn profiles and could choose which one to use with a right-clic on the traffic light. Now, i have to import each file each time i need another .ovpn and they have the same name : my domain name !
Ok, i'm perhaps missing something. So, pls tell me if i'm wrong, but at the moment, i hate this new client.
First of all, if you want to look into something new like ZTNA, this will blow your mind in terms of usability vs every VPN client out there. Feel free to check out the ZTNA case demo. https://www.sophos.com/en-us/products/zero-trust-network-access
ZTNA will give you a seems less, profile less way to access all resources.
About Sophos Connect - You can look into the .pro file approach: https://docs.sophos.com/nsg/sophos-firewall/18.5/Help/en-us/webhelp/onlinehelp/AdministratorHelp/VPN/RemoteAccessVPN/VPNSConProvisioningFile/
With this file, the Connect will integrate and fetch its own OVPN.
Thk for your answer Toni. I already tried the .pro approach but it fails probably due to the fact that the Sophos firewall is not a XG model but an old SG210 UTM 9.
I'll try to reinstall the VPN SSL client as the .ovpn file are compatible so i'll have my "traffic light" again with my different connections.
You should be careful using the old client, as it is EoL and potentially vulnerable.
Yes, but not to be deployed, only for me, until the FW is changed. Thx for the warning. ;-)
you could use any OpenVPN-Client. For example, from the original OpenVPN project or a modified one from Securepoint, which is free:
Just try it out.

Thks a lot. I just installed Secure Point's free software and was able to import the different ovpn files. Switching from on to another is again so easy ! And, btw, the "lock" icon looks better than the Sophos circle...
Noch Vielen Dank,
