Windows: Using OpenVPN Client

If you prefer running the OpenVPN app instead of our Windows VPN Client, here’s what you need to do:

Step One —   Installing OpenVPN on your machine

OpenVPN can be downloaded from the official site:  https://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/downloads.html . Make sure to download the Windows installer, as it can be seen in the picture below.

Install the freshly downloaded OpenVPN setup file. Click “Next” through the setup. The default settings are fine.

Step Two — Download our VPN config files

Go to your Services pages. You can use this link.  Select an active vpn subscription.

Here you can see all your VPN services. Select an active one to proceed.

 

Click on “OpenVPN” button under VPN Protocols. This will open the OpenVPN Config generator.

You can find the OpenVPN config generator in the “OpenVPN” tab under “VPN Protocols”.

 

Download the “.ovpn” files by clicking on the download button. You can select the server location and the protocol you want to use: UDP or TCP.

Select the location you want to connect to and click on the download button. We recommend downloading multiple locations.

Step Three — Add the config files to OpenVPN

Place the downloaded server config files in the OpenVPN config  folder. Depending on you system, it should be located at c:\Program Files (x86)\OpenVPN\config\  or  C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\config

 

Run OpenVPNGUI from desktop.  Go to the tray icon and right click it.

openvpn connect

Select the server location you wish to connect to and insert your username and password.

DONE! Now you should be connected to the VPN server you selected.
