Get the logs

There are three log files each for a different component of the client:

  • The systray log: /Users/<your user>/Library/Preferences/leap/systray.log
  • The priviledged helper: /Applications/RiseupVPN.app/Contents/helper/helper.log
  • The openvpn process: /Applications/RiseupVPN.app/Contents/helper/openvpn.log

When reporting a bug it is very useful to include the log files.
