To configure OpenVPNv to connect to your OpenVPN Server:


ca.crt client1.crt and client1.key


C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\config

and copy

C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\sample-config\client.ovpn


C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\config

edit client.opvn with notepad (run notepad as admin!)

--edit accodingly

(IF you followed my guide, or used TCP instead of UDP *Must Match Server Protocol*)

# Are we connecting to a TCP or
# UDP server? Use the same setting as
# on the server.
proto tcp
;proto udp
# The hostname/IP and port of the server.
# You can have multiple remote entries
# to load balance between the servers.
remote yourdomain.com 1194

ca ca.crt
cert client1.crt
key client1.key


--To Troubleshoot right click client.ovpn and run with OpenVPN and it should open it via CMD window that is more Verbose.
