What is a recommended/working way of using OpenVPN on GuixSD?

I do not know what the recommended way of working with
openvpn is, but I do have a working way. Attached is a bash
script that takes a wireless interface as an argument and
starts up a vpn, adjusting dns to avoid dns leaks (you will
need to modify to add the dns for your setup). So if I have
a wifi connection called "interface" I just run
``` interface``` to start my vpn
session, and then ``` interface```
to cleanup the connection after I have finished
openvpn. Also depending on your setup you might need to
either run as root, or sprinkle sudos before the nmcli

This works well for me, but I strongly doubt it is the
recommended way using openvpn. If anyone has a better way
I'd also love to hear it.


On GuixSD, we have an openvpn service, see Once configured, you can always start and stop it with "herd start openvpn-client" and "herd stop openvpn-client".
